While the media again and again recounts Donald Trump’s latest self-brewed controversy, his supporters say they are nonplused. Telling the Russians to hack a former secretary of state’s emails? A joke, many of them say. Insulting the family of fallen war hero? He was baited into it, they say. Refusing to endorse the reelection of Republican stalwarts such as Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (Wis.)? They say Trump doesn’t need the Republican leadership. Many of Trump’s supporters say they don’t even care that he seemed to kick a crying baby out of a rally in Virginia earlier this week. “He was joking,” said Spencer Marble, 19, during Trump's latest campaign rally here Wednesday night.
