This past November, almost sixty-three million Americans went to the polls and willingly voted for the most unqualified person in history to ever run for president. Not surprisingly, it hasn’t turned out well.
Trump’s approval ratings have been tanking since his inauguration, and he has utterly failed to implement any meaningful legislation. Finally, some Trump voters are starting to realize what a terrible decision they made.
In an ongoing series, CNN sits down with Trump voters to gauge their current feelings on their incompetent president. Some remain fanatics, wearing what one woman refers to as rose-colored glasses for Trump.
One man appears in the video wearing a shirt with a picture of him hugging Trump at a rally. The man still gives a full-throated defense of Donald, but when asked to name a single achievement he sputters and struggles to come up with an answer.
Their complaints about the criticism they’ve faced online and off for voting Trump are hard to empathize with. Actions have consequences, and these people voted for someone who is bringing down our institutions from the inside, who wants to take healthcare from 22 million Americans.
It’s disturbing to see that some voters still support Trump even after he’s displayed a stunning inability to execute his responsibilities as president. At this point, it seems clear that anyone still defending the president is doing it in an emotional knee-jerk fashion.
Rather than admit that they made an egregious mistake, they dig their heels in deeper, because to admit they were wrong is to admit what most people have known since the beginning: voting for Trump was a deeply immoral, and dangerous decision.
