The Trump backers insult strategy

Leon Wolf:
Trump Supporters Try To Convince #NeverTrump To Get On Board By Insulting Them
I have never found insults a persuasive form of argument.  It is not clear to me why Trump supporters think it is.   It is an intellectually lazy way of attacking those you disagree with that is usually used by juveniles on a playground.

So why do they do it?  I think it starts at the top.  Until recently that was Trump's go to method of making his case.

More recently he has changed his tone somewhat in trying to appeal to blacks.  His speech on that point was probably the most coherent of his campaign.  He is going to have to do more of that to get reluctant voters to support him.  It certainly is better than "Eat the crap sandwich or Hillary will appoint liberals to the court."
