Donald Trump took the news that a majority of registered voters think he should be removed from office with just the kind of childish attack on the Fox News poll we expected.
The poll found that 51% of registered voters think Trump should be impeached and removed.
As I noted in my post about the poll, Fox News polling is highly regarded (some of its questions and reporting on the results are a different matter). In this case, FoxNews.com's article accompanying the poll included more devastating results for Trump such as, “Among voters in swing counties (where Hillary Clinton and Trump were within 10 points in 2016), support for impeachment increased to 52 percent, up from 42 percent in July” and only 39 percent think he puts the country over his own interests.
It doesn’t look like Trump will put any of this to constructive use either for himself or the country.
...Court Justice & I turned him down (he’s been terrible ever since), Shep Smith, @donnabrazile (who gave Crooked Hillary the debate questions & got fired from @CNN), & others, @FoxNews doesn’t deliver for US anymore. It is so different than it used to be. Oh well, I’m President!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 10, 2019
Trump’s excuse seems to be that the Kurds were not actually fighting for the USA but for their own land. I can’t for the life of me understand what’s wrong with that, so long as they collaborate loyally towards a common goal.
The gem that I find truly embarrassing is when the President of the USA – THE PRESIDENT – implies that the Kurds are not worthy of American loyalty because they did nothing during World War II. The ignorance of that man boggles my mind.
The President has been losing a lot of battles lately and that cannot but start eating away at the walls he’s erected to protect his very fragile ego. The dam is cracking as more and more people choose to disobey orders to stay silent.
