The only thing I can think of is they're just as uneducated and uninformed as he is. They don't know a windmill from a wind turbine either. They think the extra profit for the 1% by loosening regulations where pollution is concerned is a good thing, even though the cancer rate increases. When he lies they react like cult members who know their Leader is having sex with 5 yr olds. They block it from their minds. They justify it like the mothers of serial killers I saw on TV some years back.
