GOP strategist Frank Luntz recently held a focus group of Trump voters to commemorate the president’s first year in office — and things quickly got out of hand when one member accused his fellow panelists of being a “cult.”
During the meeting, Luntz asked the voters whether they would vote for Trump again if given the chance. While nearly all members of the Trump focus group said they would happily back the president again in 2020, electrician Paul Allen Kroll said he would not.
Luntz then asked him why — and his response infuriated his fellow Trump voters.
“Because I’m not one of the cult members who thinks everything he does is wonderful,” he explained.
When Luntz asked Kroll to elaborate on what he meant by cult, he didn’t hold back.
“Trump was right,” he said while pointing to other people in the room. “He could literally kill somebody on Fifth Avenue and you would still love him.”
“Hillary already killed people!” shouted a Trump voter in the audience.
Another Trump supporter in the room yelled at Kroll and falsely claimed that the black unemployment rate under Obama was over 50 percent.
Watch the video below.
Nearly one year after President Donald Trump took office, @FrankLuntz asked a group of his voters what they think of his first year and if they would vote for him again.
This is what they told him.
