The Daily Show just asked Trump supporters “When Was America Great?”


Make America Great Again™.

Emblazoned on everything from caps to t-shirts (made in China), this near meaningless slogan for Donald Trump's ongoing campaign for the White House has not been without its questions...

When was America last great? During the Vietnam era, or back during racial segregation? Had it ever been great? And how will Emperor Trump make it great again?

Be it for us to ask Trump supporters though: rocking up at the recent Republican National Convention, the best and brightest reporters from The Daily Show just asked some attendees when the country was last at the peak of its powers, eliciting quite a few surprising answers. It turns out the Thomas Jefferson years were actually pretty good.

Well, “Except for the slavery stuff.”
