They will clap for anything, and I mean anything that comes out of his mouth. That is because they are brainwashed members of a cult where they see The Great the Trumpkin as a divine and infallible creature. Anything that comes out of his month is considered scripture by default. Their ability to distinguish right from wrong has been trumped by Trump, thus they no longer function as beings able to reason. They are told what to think and dutifully and gladly oblige. I tend to equate them to The Manson Family. If, God willing, Trumpkin goes to jail, that won't shake these peoples' mindless devotion one iota, and may even become that more entranced. Even years after "Charlie" was incarcerated, his followers were still in a trance. Ditto here.
