It started out as something between a social experiment and comedy, but in the end, Daily Show correspondent Jordan Klepper realized that a focus group of Donald Trump supporters actually supported full-on Nazi registries – not just for Muslim Americans, but also for Jewish Americans.
“This is a group that doesn’t like statistics, thinks Muslims need not apply,” Klepper explained. “Some would consider rounding the Jews.”
The Raw Story notes that “the latter statement was not hyperbole,” and they are right.
“When asking the group to put down their Trump signs if he named a policy idea that would make them fail to vote for the candidate, Klepper found that two of them would still back the GOP front-runner even if he proposed a ‘national registry of Jews.’”
The Republican frontrunner’s cruel mockery of reporter Serge Kovaleski as well as his call for Muslims to be registered did not seem to effect the group one way or another. “None of the participants,” the informal study found, “indicated any reluctance to support the candidate because of either incident.”
Klepper noted that Trump’s allegation “that most immigrants coming into the US from Mexico are criminals,” was patently false.
“I think the statistics are there,” the woman tried to counter..
“I think the vast majority of your statistics are bullsh*t,” Klepper retorted.
