Jones then had to acknowledge that, yes, he believes 9/11 was some form of government conspiracy, and this actually got one of the louder shouts of acknowledgement from the crowd. This keyed me into two realizations: This crowd was utterly filled with conspiracy theorists, and it was also very young and diverse for a Trump rally.
Keep in mind that Clinton currently has a 36-point lead on Trump when it comes to millennials, and it looks increasingly likely that Trump might win less than the paltry 17 percent of the nonwhite vote Romney managed in 2012. But this rally was full of millennials, particularly nonwhite millennials, all eagerly flocking to Trump. Not to paint all Trump supporters as crazy (they're not), but if you're running on "The system is rigged," you're going to get those who hate what trade deals have done to manufacturing jobs and those who believe that fluoride in the water is a communist mind control plot.
That's Hector. The other side of his sign said "Latinos for Trump," and when I asked him how much of a priority a fluoridation ban should have in a Trump presidency, he said, "He has to take care of the economy first. [Then] I want him to take care of GMOs, chemtrails, and pharmaceutical runoff." And as for the devilish fluoridation of our tap water, "He can expose that."
