Frank argues that Trump supporters are like victims of an abusive relationship. Trump fulfilled a need for many Americans:

“The people who were Trump supporters were hungry… and they needed something. And Trump seemed to provide them with that. And once you provide that for someone they are going to stay loyal to you regardless of what you do after that, unless you really turn your back on them.”

Everyone wants to analyze people like this. I'm struggling to understand it but I think it has more to do with their shared hatred of the other---people of color whom they blame for their own inadequacies. Trump is a bully, particularly to people they despise. He is the embodiment of what they hope to be themselves.

I don't feel they are like an abused victim, but an emboldened bigot.
