People have never made a chimp President.
Because there's never been a chimp in Trump's position.

No, he got to be President because the Republicans spent decades propagandizing their base into idolizing bigotry, cruelty, stupidity and arrogance; Trump just exemplifies more that more than the people they intended to take advantage of it. He doesn't make calculated statements, he emits verbal white noise his followers interpret to mean what they like.

He accidentally stepped into the hole they carved into themselves and rode the machine they made to victory.
