The clouds parted, the sun rays shone down and a chorus of angels sang the holy name of Donald Trump. At least that’s how his supporters see it.
According to a series of interviews from CNN, one Trump supporter believes that The Donald has “the character of God,” despite bragging about groping women and facing a federal lawsuit in December over the alleged rape of an underage girl. Wisconsin Trump voter Debbie Shields explained he is a “loving compassionate father,” who “God chose for a time as this.” She thinks the whole sexual assault thing is being blown out of proportion by a sensationalist media.
Another Wisconsin supporter, who is identified only as Shirley, explained that Democrats “have no issues that they can win on, so all they can do is try to pick on Trump and his character.”
Sue Rasmussen agrees, explaining that we all falter in the expectations of God a few times. “So, we’ve all missed the mark,” she said of the 12-plus times Trump allegedly sexually assaulted someone.
“He’s not perfect,” said former Ben Carson supporter Ron Lovelin. “I’m not looking for perfect. I’m looking for someone to save this country.”
Paul Robertson admitted that it bothered him to hear Trump talk about grabbing women by the genitalia on the “Access Hollywood” bus in 2005, but it isn’t changing his support. “Is it a deal breaker? No,” he explained. Trump’s business chops are what the country needs, according to Robertson.
“I think those women need to grow a set,” Wisconsin voter Carol Robertson said of the women who have come forward to accuse Trump and endured threats from his supporters. “You know, it’s been a lot of years. Get over it,” she advised the women who say they were sexually assaulted.
Trump supporters also made news last week, when one was interviewed by “Face the Nation” and admitted that “Make America Great Again” meant that we would return to a time of no abortions and no homosexuals.

Trump approves of North Korea missile tests: ‘I have no problem’ because they’re just ‘short-range missiles’
On Thursday, in conversation with reporters, President Donald Trump said that he had 'no problem' with North Korea's new round of missile tests.
"Short-range missiles, we never made an agreement on that," said Trump. "I have no problem, we'll see what happens, but these are short-range missiles. They're very standard."
The thought that short-range missiles would still be capable of hitting our allies in the region, like South Korea and Japan, does not seem to have occurred to him.

Russian Twitter propaganda predicted 2016 US election polls
But one conclusion was unequivocal: Russia unleashed an extensive campaign of fake news and disinformation on social media with the aim of distorting U.S. public opinion, sowing discord and swinging the election in favor of the Republican candidate Donald Trump.
Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
