A recent essay in the Atlantic looked at the question of why Trump's supporters don't seem to care about his many types of corruption. The writer concluded that they did, in fact, care about corruption, but the corruption that concerned them most was the corruption of their idea of what an American is - that is, Christian, white, and, when it comes to positions of power, male. Their fear of this type of corruption outweighs all other concerns, so these Trump supporters turn a blind eye to all of his other failings. I think these people make up a huge percentage of Trump's most ardent loyalists - which is not to say that there's not a significant Venn diagram overlap between this group and the people you describe in this piece.
