‘That’s all folks! I’m out’: Longtime supporter explains why she can no longer back Trump

Published

on

Trump supporters are fiercely loyal and many observers have wondered just what it would take to get some of them to jump ship.

For New York Post columnist Andrea Peyser, we now have the answer.

In a column posted this week, Peyser explained that she could “no longer justify” calling herself a Trump supporter thanks to his most recent outrages.

“That’s all folks! I’m out,” she declared at the start of her piece, before going on to talk about how Trump blundered his way into a fight with the Khan family.

“Trump could have said he’s sorry for the Khans’ loss, and left it at that,” she wrote. “Instead, he said the dad had ‘no right’ to ‘viciously’ criticize him, and accused the slain soldier’s mom, Ghazala Khan, of standing by silently as her husband spoke because she is Muslim. (She later said she was too distraught to speak.)”

At the conclusion of her piece, she declared that “I can no longer justify calling myself a Trumpkin” and vowed that she was “done with The Donald.”

While Trump himself will likely shrug off her defection as that of a “loser” columnist at a “failing” newspaper, it’s never a good sign when you’re losing longtime fans with just three months to go before an election.

Bill Maher rips Trump and ‘the gang that couldn’t do treason straight’ on Real Time

Published

HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher ripped the incompetence of the Trump administration after acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney confessed that there was a quid pro quo with Ukraine in Rudy Giuliani's search for foreign election assistance.

"It's not just that he's always breaking the law, it's that he obviously wants you to know about it," Maher said. "The Joker doesn't want to get caught this bad."

"This is Trump's definition of three-dimensional chess, 'I'm going to distract you from impeaching me by committing more crimes," he said.

"It's like he comes home and Melania says to him, 'you have lipstick on your color,' and he says, 'you should see my d*ck,'" Maher said.

"Producer and activist Andrew Duncan bought 300 tickets to tonight's Nets vs Raptors game and is hosting hundreds of Chinese pro-Democracy activists to protest the NBA," New York magazine correspondent Yashar Ali reported Friday. "They're all wearing 'Stand With Hong Kong' T-shirts."

Published

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Mick Mulvaney, his acting White House chief of staff and director of the Office of Management and Budget, The Atlantic reported Friday.

"Mick Mulvaney's job was in danger even before his disastrous press conference yesterday, and his equally disastrous attempt to walk that performance back," The Atlantic reported. "The fumble could not have been more poorly timed: According to multiple current and former White House officials, many of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to relay private conversations, Trump has been steadily souring on Mulvaney for weeks."
