Trump’s reelection campaign manager lashes out at ABC and Washington Post for quantifying president’s unpopularity

Published

on

The man tasked with reelecting President Donald Trump in 2020 lashed out at The Washington Post and ABC News for using polling to quantify the president’s unpopularity.

On Friday, the results of a new Washington Post-ABC News poll found 60 percent of Americans disapproved of President Trump’s approval rating.

The poll also found 53 percent of Americans have concluded Trump committed obstruction of justice in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and 49 percent of Americans believe Congress should begin impeachment proceedings against the former reality-TV personality.

“Trump has tried to discredit Mueller, discredit Sessions and defend Manafort, the Post‘s White House bureau chief, Phil Rucker noted. “But our poll found it isn’t working. 63 percent support Mueller investigation. 64 percent say Sessions shouldn’t be fired. 67 percent say case against Manafort was justified.”

“The tweets do not appear to be working: clear majorities back Mueller and Sessions, while only 45 percent of Americans approve of Trump’s handling of the economy,” concluded Washington Post national editor Steven Ginsberg.

Parscale, Trump’s campaign manager, simply refused to accept the poll results, claiming they were “total fake news” and a “data scam.”

In typical Trump fashion, Parscale even attempted to blame Trump’s poor poll numbers on undocumented immigrants.

Here’s Parscale’s analysis of the poll, followed by the analysis of people who are not on Trump’s payroll:

Published

on

On Friday, the conservative anti-Trump group The Lincoln Project released a new attack ad against President Donald Trump — this time using the criticism of his former Defense Secretary James Mattis, and comparing and contrasting their leadership ability.

"This is the story of a coward and a commander," said the ad's narrator. "The coward Trump dodged the draft. Jim Mattis led American troops for forty years. While a frightened Trump hides from protesters in a deep bunker firing off tweets, Jim Mattis does what he's always done: Leads. While Donald Trump angrily attacks, General Mattis' words deserve to be heard by every American."

Maxine Waters calls for Trump’s Cabinet initiate the 25th Amendment ‘before this would-be dictator takes us all down’

Published

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called for Donald Trump to be removed from office on Friday.

"Is there one brave member of Trump’s cabinet who would move to initiate the 25th Amendment to remove him from office?" Waters asked on the president's favorite social networking platform.

The 25th Amendment would allow Vice President Mike Pence to ascend to the presidency if a majority of Trump's cabinet declares "the president is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office."

"Now is the time to save our country before this would-be dictator takes us all down!" Waters warned.
