Pennsylvania Trump fans don’t care about his failures — as long as he keeps attacking NFL players

President Donald Trump’s supporters in economically depressed portions of Pennsylvania had hoped by now he would have delivered the help he promised — but they’ll take his attacks on civil rights protesters as consolation.

Politico Magazine revisited some of the Trump voters who set hard deadlines for action ahead of last year’s election, and found they hadn’t stopped backing the Republican president despite his record.

A year after Trump’s election, local unemployment has improved slightly in the Johnstown area, and there’s some new activity in the coal mines — but not much else has changed.

“There’s nothing good in the area,” said Trump voter Pam Schilling, who lost her 32-year-old son last year to a heroin overdose. “I don’t have anything good to say about anything in this area. It’s sad.”

But her enthusiasm for Trump remains as strong as ever: “I’m a supporter of him, 100 percent.”

That’s what Politico Magazine’s Michael Kruse found over and over.

Another supporter, Joey Del Signore, said Trump was a dramatic improvement over President Barack Obama — whom he suspects may be the antichrist.

“Everybody I talk to realizes it’s not Trump who’s dragging his feet,” Del Signore said. “Trump’s probably the most diligent, hardest-working president we’ve ever had in our lifetimes. It’s not like he sleeps in till noon and goes golfing every weekend, like the last president did.”

Kruse said he pointed out that Trump does, in fact, frequently golf — which he said seemed to surprise Del Signore.

“Does he?” the Fox News viewer said, before changing the subject. “If I was married to his wife, I don’t think I’d go anywhere.”

The Trump supporters became most animated when the subject of NFL protesters came up, Politico Magazine reported.

“Shame on them,” Del Signore said. “These clowns are out there, making millions of dollars a year, and they’re using some stupid excuse that they want equality — so I’ll kneel against the flag and the national anthem?”

Schilling and her husband had stopped watching NFL games, despite their love for the Dallas Cowboys, and she told the reporter what her somewhat shyer half would not say he called the professional sports league.

“N*ggers for life,” Schilling said, which emboldened her husband somewhat.

“For life,” Dave McCabe agreed.

2020 Election

Donald Trump vows he ‘will never concede’ in late night conspiracy-filled rant

Published

on

Donald Trump lost the 2020 presidential to President-elect Joe Biden, but is still refusing to concede.

White House aides reportedly convinced him to allow Biden to begin his transition by telling him he did not need to use the word "concede."

But that word appeared to be on his mind late Monday night.

"What does GSA being allowed to preliminarily work with the Dems have to do with continuing to pursue our various cases on what will go down as the most corrupt election in American political history?" Trump asked while continuing to lie about the election being corrupt.

2020 Election

Trump supporters are slowly coming to grips with his miserable defeat

Published

This Monday was a reassuring day for democracy, but a devastating blow for supporters of President Donald Trump still holding out hope that he'll stay in office past January 2021.

Michigan certified the results of Joe Biden's victory, thwarting Trump's hope to overturn the outcome. And the General Services Administrator Emily Murphy finally provided Biden's team with the resources to fund his transition, a move even approved of by Trump himself, though he vowed to keep fighting:

Arizona Republican likens Trump’s loss to Japan getting nuked while losing WW II — but as a good thing

President Donald Trump on Monday allowed President-elect Joe Biden's transition to proceed -- while vowing he would never concede.

Despite Trump losing the election, some Trump supporters are refusing to accept the outcome.

One Arizona Republican in Congress, Paul Gosar, drew upon the historical knowledge him learned on his way to becoming a dentist in a bizarre analogy he posted on Twitter.

Gosar suggested the Trump movement would be like an Imperial Japanese soldier in World War II who refused to surrender until 1974.
