It’s just 71 days into President Donald Trump’s term and Americans are lining up to talk about the new leader’s shortcomings. From the FCC allowing internet companies to sell browsing history to his dealing of the opioid crisis, Trump’s own supporters are taking issue with his policies.
The Showtime series “The Circus: Inside the Greatest Political Show on Earth,” shows MSNBC’s Mark Halperin leading a focus group of community members at Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire. The group was a mix of Trump supporters and those who hate the president.
Halperin asked the audience who thought they were the most upset person in the room at Trump. An elderly gentleman who described himself as a conservative was the one to raise his hand.
The audience gave advice to trump that ranged from “act presidential” to “shake the hand of foreign dignitaries when they visit you” and even “slow down.” When they were asked to use one word to describe Trump they said he was “impulsive,” “arrogant,” “immature” and “trigger happy.”

Alabama Republican: ‘I want to see more people’ get coronavirus
On Thursday, Alabama Senate President Pro Tempore Del Marsh suggested that he wanted more people to get coronavirus — because he thinks America would develop "herd immunity" and reduce the spread enough to protect more vulnerable populations.
"I'm not as concerned so much as the number of cases. In fact, quite honestly, I want to see more people, because we start reaching an immunity the more people have it and get through it," said Marsh. "I don't want any deaths, as few as possible, say, I get it, but those people who are susceptible to the disease, especially more serious pre-existing conditions, elderly population, those folks, we need to, you know, do all we can to protect them. But I'm not concerned, I want to make sure that everybody can receive care."
The Secretary of Defense was briefed on Russian bounty on American soldiers — proving it isn’t the hoax Trump said it was
Last week, President Donald Trump finally heard the news that the Russian government was giving cash to Afghanistan's Taliban forces to murder American soldiers.
Initially, he began with Step one in the Trump list of processing a scandal: denial.
"Nobody briefed or told me, @VP Pence, or Chief of Staff @MarkMeadows about the so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan by Russians, as reported through an "anonymous source" by the Fake News @nytimes. Everybody is denying it & there have not been many attacks on us. Nobody's been tougher on Russia than the Trump Administration. With Corrupt Joe Biden & Obama, Russia had a field day, taking over important parts of Ukraine - Where's Hunter? Probably just another phony Times hit job, just like their failed Russia Hoax. Who is their 'source'?" tweeted Trump on June 28.
Here’s why Trump contradicted his own White House on the Supreme Court rulings
Following the Supreme Court's pair of 7-2 decisions rejecting President Donald Trump's claim to have absolute immunity from subpoenas, he blasted the ruling on Twitter, claiming he being unfairly targeted and the victim of "prosecutorial misconduct." However, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany released a statement saying that "President Trump is gratified by today’s decision."
