Fox News pointed to a new poll showing that fewer than half of Americans are “extremely proud” of their nationality — and they received hundreds of reminders of the shame inflicted by President Donald Trump.
The “Fox & Friends First” program tweeted out the results of the poll and asked other social media users to comment on the decline of pride in the U.S., and they were hit with more than 2,000 comments in less than two hours.
A new poll shows only 45% of men and women in the U.S. are ‘extremely proud’ to be American. That is the lowest amount ever recorded by this poll. What do you think is causing the decline? pic.twitter.com/6frxIAHCcp

Are you kidding? Are you proud of children in cages, people not being able to afford drugs, our closest allies being dissed while tyrants are fawned over? The ultra rich are pitting the poor and middle classes against each other, and its working.

Probably the traitorous president, who appears to be compromised by foreigners the way the Founders feared?
(Ps: thanks, Rupert Murdoch.)

It’s a tough call, but I’ll give it a shot.
I’d theorize it has something to do with a sociopathic, malignant sexual predator, narcissist running around the White House and the world, spreading racism, hate, xenophobia, and greed while enriching himself and endangering others.

Probably all the fascism.
