A video posted by video editor, musician, and online personality Vic Berger IV on Thursday shows a young Donald Trump supporter in a Trump 2020 hat at a recent “Keep America Great” rally being asked a really easy question by a reporter. At least, it should have been an easy question.
“What is something that you believe the president has done well?” What follows is nine full seconds of noises and sputtering before he admits that he can’t do it.

“I’m not really sure,” he says. “I just support him.”
There it is. The whole problem, in a nutshell, played out in a 17-second video.
The video is spreading on Twitter, with over 11,000 shares and approaching 45,000 likes. Some commenters believe this is likely typical of Trump supporters, who they believe follow him because of vague, sometimes cult-like sentiments and slogans about making America great. Others have speculated that he was paid to attend the rally.
Most Trump supporters are like this young man. They just support him because he cons them into believing he is doing something great! And, they feel a part of something

It’s a cult or this guy was paid to be there. The GOP’s blind support of 45* is one of least American things I have ever witnessed, smh

This is definitive proof that Trump’s cult is fueled by emotions and feelings, not facts. #snowflakes

Unfortunately probably a young man who replied to a Craigslist advert & received $50 and a maga hat to attend. Poor kid probably needed gas money or a new game cartridge.

Some also suggested that perhaps the young man could think of some things he likes about Trump, but didn’t want to share them with a reporter.

It’s close enough to “he’s a white dude” as I’ve heard.

Trump has caused enormous suffering among immigrants and he’s killed a lot of civilians in the Middle East. That’s why the MAGA people support him.

“I just like red hats and racism, maam”

Trump supporters have not been the best when put on the spot by reporters, as many videos made by liberal comedians in the past have shown. But when you can’t come up with a single positive thing about your presidential candidate when it’s softballed in like that, you might want to rethink your life choices.
