The 36 Percent

The newest Washington Post/ABC News poll was released this weekend, and it shows Donald Trump's approval rating is only 36 percent, the lowest for any President at the six-month mark since the poll was first conducted in the 1940s. In true form as the profligate liar he is, Trump declared the historically horrid poll results as "not bad at this time."

ABC's Rick Klein writes about the poll (link here): "It’s a dismal set of numbers, six months in.... The president’s 36 percent approval rating in the new ABC-Post poll means he has his base, and that’s basically it. That’s how he is choosing to govern, with a slashing style and regular outrages -- as perceived by all those who have been loyal throughout. He is both governing and communicating as if the other two-thirds of the country don’t matter, or matter less than those who elected him."

So there you have it: if you don't support Trump, then his administration's policy is fuck you. You're on your own.

This would be a good point to remind ourselves of Trump's promises on election night 2016 (source here): "I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans, and this is so important to me. For those who have chosen not to support me in the past, of which there were a few people, I'm reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country."

So much for those promises. Add them to the ever-growing mountain of Trump lies.

Sadly, many of the people who support him are being kicked in the face by Trump. His tax cuts will only help people who earn more than $400,000. And tens of millions will lose health insurance, thanks to him, if TrumpCare ever passes.
