‘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.”

‘Nauseating’: Trump displays his utter contempt for the law and the Constitution — again

Published

on

Abuse of power must be the label on a burgeoning dossier of complaints about Donald Trump as a president who would order subordinates to ignore congressional subpoenas, to steal money from one approved budget pot to build his Wall, to flaunt ethical protocols – and to do all those obstruction-like things outlined in the Mueller Report.

Now has come a mysterious new problem – a so-called whistleblower case alleging some kind of unidentified bad behavior from the top of the White House. From the descriptions of who is targeted, it seems to focus on Trump, his family, or someone within the top tier. Indeed, The Washington Post reported from sources that the complaint concerned an urgent matter relating to Trump promises to a foreign leader, most probably the prime minister of Ukraine.

Ocasio-Cortez: Democratic refusal to impeach Trump is a ‘bigger national scandal’ than Trump’s lawbreaking

Published

on

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., criticized House Democrats on Saturday for their unwillingness to impeach President Donald Trump despite new revelations that he may have pressured Ukraine to dig up dirt on one of his potential Democratic rivals in 2020, former Vice President Joe Biden.

"At this point, the bigger national scandal isn’t the president’s lawbreaking behavior - it is the Democratic Party’s refusal to impeach him for it," Ocasio-Cortez tweeted on Saturday night.

She also retweeted 2020 presidential candidate and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke, D-Texas, who responded to a story about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refusing to reevaluate her position on impeaching Trump in spite of the Ukraine story by saying, "What is Congress waiting for? This is crazy. Unless we take action now, we will see the end of American democracy."

President Donald Trump and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison appeared at a rally in Ohio Sunday, prompting Aussies to complain that it's unacceptable for their leader to be campaigning for Trump.

Trump invited himself to a Houston, Texas rally with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, where he tried to campaign for the U.S. president with Indian-American voters. Sadly, however, nearly 80 percent of Indian-American voters cast their ballots for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
