I live in the Deep South and for years I have been trying to explain why this region and others are so hard core GOP.

Over the weekend, Trump tweeted a video showing him literally attacking CNN and leaving it flattened. Many took issue with the graphic as journalists are increasingly being attacked and threatened.
What say you? Do our Repub brethren live in an alternative universe?
