WATCH: These Trump supporters would still back him if he proposed ‘national registry of Jews’
Daily Show correspondent Jordan Klepper came away from a focus group of Donald Trump supporters on Tuesday as confused as anyone as to the real estate mogul’s political appeal.
“This is a group that doesn’t like statistics, thinks Muslims need not apply,” Klepper said. “Some would consider rounding the Jews.”
The latter statement was not hyperbole. 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.”
He also found that Trump’s mockery of reporter Serge Kovaleski and call for Muslims to be registered had no effect on the group, as none of the participants indicated any reluctance to support the candidate because of either incident.
Klepper also clashed with one group member who supported Trump’s allegation that most immigrants coming into the US from Mexico are criminals.
“I think the statistics are there,” the woman said.
“I think the vast majority of your statistics are bullsh*t,” Klepper shot back.
