Around A Third Of Americans Say Trump Is Honest


Trump vowed to the morons who voted for him to eliminate the carried interest loophole but he didn't-- and no one who voted for him is sharp enough to understand what it is anyway

Charlie Dent (R-PA) isn’t running for reelection, in part because he hates Congress’ partisan gridlock, detests Trump and because, as he told Mary Bruce on This Week yesterday, because his party is “alienating” mainstream voters. And yes, he disgraced himself as an enabler by voting for Ryan’s and Trump’s massive Tax Scam last week. Trump and Ryan have gone to great lengths to keep to the focus group-tested talking points that paint the Tax Scam as something that somehow is oriented towards the middle class. It isn’t and at Mar-a-Lago Friday night, Señor Trumpanzee just couldn’t stick to the script, not when there was a chance to brag to this country’s plutocrats.
President Trump kicked off his holiday weekend at Mar-a-Lago Friday night at a dinner where he told friends, "You all just got a lot richer," referencing the sweeping tax overhaul he signed into law hours earlier. Mr. Trump directed those comments to friends dining nearby at the exclusive club— including to two friends at a table near the president's who described the remark to CBS News— as he began his final days of his first year in office in what has become known as the "Winter White House.”
Trump has repeatedly lied to the American people, asserting that the tax bill is "not good" for him personally and that ”the rich will not be gaining at all with this plan. We are looking for the middle class and we are looking for jobs-- jobs being the economy.”

Poll after poll has shown that most voters have caught onto Trump. And not only on the Tax Scam, where overwhelming numbers recognize it as primarily helping the wealth, not the middle class. Perhaps more important is that most Americans don’t believe Trump— about anything. Last week’s Quinnipiac poll shows that 62% of voters know that Trump is dishonest. 70% agree he isn’t level-headed. Around a third of voters say they still see Trump as honest. Quinnipiac didn’t not poll too see how many of those Trump voters are strung out on prescription drugs and, like all polls, doesn’t test for IQ.

A recent Morning Consult survey showed that just 33% of voters agree that Trump is trustworthy, 35% that he is honest and 34% that he keeps his promises. The most recent poll from Reuters (Ipsos) shows that 60% of voters disapprove of the job Trump is doing. 35% approve. The only states with strong Trump approval numbers are Wyoming, Alaska and West Virginia, although voters in Idaho, South Dakota, Alabama, Oklahoma, Louisiana and North Dakota are still on board to some extent.

Basically, a third of americans have no detectable EEG. But they vote.

The other two-thirds may have detectable EEGs, but they never have anyone to vote FOR.

This is how tyranny of the money works. They money buys the democraps and keeps them from doing shit for people worth less than 8 figures. And they lie to the brain dead and/or skillfully foment hatreds that keep that primordial organic slime voting for their guys.

Wouldn't work if the two-thirds insisted on good government. But it's easier to just vote for the OTHER person since they are not quite as bad...

General Strike, huh? In America? I'll go pop some corn. This should be good.

I agree it's time, but the people aren't ready for such a thing. It might interfere with watching the NFL Playoffs. And isn't Dancing With The Stars about to begin a new season? Many won't have time to rise up angry and take their nation back from criminals.

Trent Franks is no longer the richest politician in Arizona because Trent Franks is no longer a politician. You can't ask young women in the office to have your baby Trent.

Now, to make a request. Please lets ensure Thomas MacArthur is no longer the richest politician in New Jersey. He brought a bill back to life which would have eviscerated the ACA. With hope, the morons at the DNC have the brains to back a progressive to run against this retrograde fat little shit. MacArthur also voted to "Give the Trump Kids a Massive Tax Break Law" into law.

Chris Collins in New York. Just because, that is why. He is disgusting. Vile.
