A conservative conundrum

I was thinking the other day how Trump can basically do anything.  If Fox News had video of him sacrificing a virgin on an altar in the middle of the woods at night, it seems like many on the right would say that it was taken out of context, or would try to deflect it by saying something along the lines of, “I though liberals were supposed to be tolerant of other religious beliefs.” I was wondering what would Trump have to do to lose their support.  Then I remembered him saying he could shoot someone and his poll numbers would go up.  This led to an interesting conundrum.  If one of these Second Amendment warriors was in a bar and heard that there was a maniac standing in the street shooting people and went to put an end to it, who would conservatives end up supporting: Trump, or the good guy with a gun?

Probably Trump.  Because a real American would be shooting at the same people the President is.  A true patriot always supports the President.  Well, as long as there’s an (R) by their name.
