"Disturbing" does not begin to describe that photograph.

"Trump is able to speak to their sense of being under siege."

Classic, of course: We are the victims. They are taking away what is rightfully ours. It is ours because We are more deserving, better, than Them.

The Twilight Zone episode "He's Alive" http://www.tv.com/shows/the-twilight-zone/hes-alive-12691/ should be broadcast nonstop this election cycle. Not the strongest episode production-wise, but disgustingly timely.

(closing narration)
Narrator: Where will he go next, this phantom from another time, this resurrected ghost of a previous nightmare--Chicago; Los Angeles; Miami, Florida; Vincennes, Indiana; Syracuse, New York? Anyplace, everyplace, where there's hate, where there's prejudice, where there's bigotry. He's alive. He's alive so long as these evils exist. Remember that when he comes to your town. Remember it when you hear his voice speaking out through others. Remember it when you hear a name called, a minority attacked, any blind, unreasoning assault on a people or any human being. He's alive because through these things we keep him alive.
