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

Published

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:

Women are making Trump ‘melt down’ — or turn tail and run: columnist

Published

President Donald Trump doesn’t like being challenged by any media figures, even if they are conservative white males like Fox News’ Chris Wallace or The Bulwark’s Bill Kristol. But female reporters, in particular, seem to rattle Trump, as journalist Jack Shafer argues in an op-ed published in Politico this week.

Shafer describes a pattern, explaining, “It starts with a reporter, usually a female reporter, asking President Donald Trump hard, tenacious questions at a news conference. Trump’s jaw seizes up, rattled and dumbfounded by the questions that he can’t or won’t answer. He abruptly ends the presser by saying, ‘Thank you very much’ and stalking out of the room.”

‘Silence is complicity’: GOP condemned for doing nothing as Trump openly touts sabotage of postal service

Published

"Donald Trump knows that if the people are heard in November, he and Republicans up and down the ballot will lose," said Sen. Elizabeth Warren. "This is what we're up against—and this is why we have to fight back with all we've got."

Voting rights advocates on Thursday took aim at Republicans in Congress for remaining silent in the face of President Donald Trump's open admission that he is blocking funding for the U.S. Postal Service with the express purpose of stopping an expansion of mail-in ballot access ahead of the November elections.
