Neal Callaway: In psychology, we call this "projection"---it is a basic defense mechanism where people deny reality and attempt to enhance self-image by placing their own insecurities and characteristics onto others. It is a simplistic effort to distract. Trump IS racism incarnate and he knows it. As he showers entire cultures (Mexicans, immigrants, Muslims, Hispanics, African Americans, women, etc) with sweeping venomous statements, he inspires hate, fear, and ignorance. This is why David Duke, white supremacists, and other vile racists love Trump---after all, they see themselves in him...plain and simple.
