‘He’s embarrassed me’: North Carolina voters confess they regret support for ‘baffling fool’ Trump

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s approval rating is stuck in the 30s, which means that a significant number of people who voted for him last year are at least starting to regret their choice.

The Washington Post reports that several North Carolina Trump voters expressed buyer’s remorse during a focus group this week, with many voters saying they felt humiliated by the president’s “childish” behavior.

“While I thought his ideas appealed to me, since he’s been in there he’s embarrassed me by his behavior,” said 56-year-old Trump voter Annie Anthony. “I think that his language is unprofessional. He uses words like ‘sad’ and ‘bad.’ That’s first grade language. We’re an intelligent population who elected you. Represent us!”

62-year-old Trump voter Melissa Hight echoed similar themes, and said she’s grown wary of Trump’s constantly combative persona.

“I had high hopes, but he just goes about things in a way that gets everybody’s back up against the wall,” she said. “He doesn’t facilitate working together. He comes out with these grandiose ideas, and there’s no follow through. It’s a lot of talk.”

41-year-old Trump voter Michael Leimone didn’t say he regretted voting for Trump, but he did say the president has failed at leadership at key points, particularly after the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

“He’s not been there when you needed him to be there,” he said. “After Charlottesville and (the hurricanes), he was out doing other stuff.”

The North Carolina focus group — which consisted of five independents, four Republicans, and three Democrats — did not have kind words overall for Trump, and the Post says panelists described him as “incompetent, a baffling fool, childlike, a loose cannon, an immature narcissist and ignorant.”

Trump drowned in ‘heavy metal jokes’ after trying to tag Dem challengers as ‘motley crew’

Published

on

President Donald Trump trotted out a new catchphrase to mock the field of Democratic presidential candidates, but it didn't get quite the reaction he may have hoped.

The president insisted polls looked good for his re-election chances, despite leaked internal polling that says otherwise, and tried to tag his potential 2020 challengers as a "motley crew."

Only Fake Polls show us behind the Motley Crew. We are looking really good, but it is far too early to be focused on that. Much work to do! MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Trump betting he can win re-election by spinning new conspiracy theories to explain investigations: report

Published

on

Special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into President Donald Trump's association with Russian efforts to undermine the 2016 presidential election may be over. But that does not mean the president is free from oversight.

According to Politico, Trump is still facing 15 civil and criminal probes by at least nine federal, state, and municipal agencies on everything from obstruction of justice to campaign finance violations to using his office to enrich his family and businesses. But president is not bothered by these investigations — or at least, he believes that he can use them to his political advantage.

Meet the mysterious conservative lawyer who keeps turning up in the Russia probes

Published

on

A prominent conservative lawyer keeps showing up in dramas central to the Trump administration and its battles with Congress—and it turns out he has intimate knowledge of Felix Sater’s intelligence work for the U.S. government while he was working with Trump.

The Moscow-born Sater is the financial criminal and violent felon who worked closely with Trump for years while simultaneously serving as a long-term informant for the FBI and other national security agencies.

In 2015 and into mid-2016, Sater pushed for the development of a Trump Tower in Moscow with his old friend Michael Cohen, Trump’s longtime fixer, while trying to enlist support from the Russian government for Trump’s campaign.
