Vulgarities, insults, baseless attacks: Trump backers follow his lead

The behavior of President Trump’s supporters often mirrors his own in terms of vulgarities, insults, and baseless attacks. Pro-Trump news sources like Breitbart and Fox News are rife with such unconventional discourse. Politicians, religious figures and journalists who oppose Trump’s politics are all routinely targeted with insults and accusations of dishonesty. The level of animosity has been compounded by social media, where Trump’s supporters spread conspiracy theories and false narratives related to Trump’s personal life and his policies. Trump-backers do not just limit their attacks to political opponents, however – they often extend to anyone who voices criticism of the President. Trump-backers have used the President’s rhetoric to justify their own personal attacks, insults, and sometimes even threats. As long as the President continues along his current path, it is likely that his supporters will continue to ascribe to his mode of discourse.
