We don't want our military in everyone else's countries, but NATO forces us to guard them for free, even though it costs a fortune and no one else will do it. We don't want to depend on foreign oil and energy sources, especially from countries that hate us, but current politicians want us to because it keeps their pockets lined with cash. We want our illegal immigrant situation under control, because they're leeching the welfare system and job market dry, but there's nothing being done about it, and some politicians advocate on making it worse because it gives them voters. We don't want the same two parties running every election. We don't want more middle eastern wars, yet Hillary's advocated every war in there before she ran for president, and will be more than willing to start more. We're aware and tired of the fact that our media is becoming increasingly more hard biased to either side and line of opinion. We know China's manipulating currency and trade deals to be on top of everything and harm our economy in the process, if just to keep afloat themselves. We know our tax, healthcare, and education systems are all overcomplicated, failing, and increasingly costly, and we need to seriously rework them to make it better for everyone. And lastly we know that there are too many politicians bought out and sponsored by wealthy businesses and bureaucrats, that put their own interests above the people's, also known as the Establishment, because they are percieved to be that. Established and invincible.
These are things people are understandably worried about and Trump has so far at least acknowledged solutions for each and every one. Hillary has either skirted around the question or given the wrong answer to rally people to her. Does this mean that Trump has every solution to all our problems and is the savior that we've wanted? No. But the thing that makes him so powerful, so terrifying to people like Hillary and regular politicians, the media, and such is just the fact that he knows the system perhaps better than anyone, but has no chains holding him to anybody but himself.
He may speak like a fool, rant like an idiot, and say silly things, but the thing is he knows its silly, and he does it because it gets him attention. If you read anything he's written, you'll find his entire career, his persona, his life is all constructed around the one thing he's truly good at, dealing with people. He's a master of marketing, knows how the media will spin a story, and know how people in power react to different situations and proposals by experience, knows how information gets to and sticks in someone's mind, and knows how money flow manipulates everything. If anyone can stand up to a biased media, an establishment that is dead set on gaining absolute power, and yet instill pride in one's country, it's him. And for the things that he doesn't know, he surrounds himself with as many experts as possible and more than anything, listens before he acts.
Does this mean that his policies are always great? No. Does he speak the truth every time? Heck no. Will he be a great president? Literally no one knows. But that's the intrigue of the whole thing. He's new. He's fresh. He's a gamble with a potentially great reward, while the alternative... A person who is a known pathological liar, power hungry, irritable, warmongering, under investigation for several federal crimes, and right now suspected to be suffering from literal post-stroke brain damage and potential demensia, is a risk with little to no reward, promising the status-quo we've had for the past couple decades.
So to summarize, he's a rebel, followed by rebels, who knows the system and it's playbook and wants to take it down. It's uncharted waters, but the road looks better than the alternative.

it's like acting
people made "trump is going to win xD" posts and liked them because it was THE meme but slowly they started believing it little by little
if you talk to them about it they're gonna say it's a joke but if you actually try to debate it, they will protect Trumps image with all their might

I'm sure you've heard it a million times before, but I honestly just think Trump is better than Clinton and that's my only reason I'd want him to be president. It's also my opinion that the climate in America has swung too far to the left, so I was already in favor of a Republican to help balance out anyway. I'm sure by 2020 I'll be wanting another Democrat in office if Trump wins (unless by some miracle there's a strong third party, which if you think about it is likely since whoever wins this election will be hated by half or more of the nation)

You've more or less described my thoughts on the matter as well. We've become far, far too left-wing, to the point of being extremist in our policies and how we handle things. I agree that we need something to the right to balance it out, but it feels like this might have been a little too drastic a step all at once.
I hate to even say it, but I'd rather he win than Clinton. Trump strikes me as an idiot, but at least he's an honest idiot with very clear intentions. Arguably, good intentions. Hillary's just... Not. She's intelligent, but she's so far corrupt it's not even funny.
