You Got Trumped! Trump Rapidly Losing Strongest Supporters

by David Haggith, The Great Recession Blog:

Maybe Trump didn’t realize that all of his supporters actually expected him to deliver on all of his hard-edged statements. Or maybe he was Trojan Trump from the get go, just as I postulated many months ago to the outrage of many of my fellow anti-establishment readers who wanted to believe Trump was their champion. (I sympathize with them and understand their hopes, but have never seen such a self-aggrandizing narcissist as likely to fulfill that role.) The Trump election upset is turning out to be more upsetting to his supporters than to his critics. As Michael Savage says below, their world has turned upside down.

The biggest problem seems to be that Trump is getting no traction, to where his most ardent supporters are wondering if Trump is just a master of illusion. Travel bans I and II were stalled by courts (whether rightly or wrongly); Obamacare Repeal I and II have both stalled in the Republican caucus (so he can’t even get anywhere with his own party). World’s Biggest Tax Plan Lite was scoffed at by both Republicans and Democrats alike for appearing to have been written overnight on a single page and looking more like notes of objectives for a tax planning meeting than any kind of actual plan. The date by which a tax plan might finally be hammered out and actually get voted into being has been pushed, even by its architects, to December of this year, at best, or early next year. The border wall seems to be moving around in search of money as though it is just a bargaining chip. And over time, Trump’s Goldman-Sachs cabinet has shifted away from Steve Bannon and infilled with more Goldman.

Trump has in his first hundred days spent more time on golfing vacations than most presidents spend in a year. He travels down to Florida to enjoy cake every other week, and he complains in interviews that the job has turned out to be much harder than he ever thought it would be — much harder than his work as a CEO of Trump, Inc., which he enjoyed a lot more.

I loved my previous life. I had so many things going,” Trump told Reuters in an interview. “This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.” (Reuters)

Who would have thought that being president could be so difficult? It’s almost as hard as revising Obamacare.

The roll call of supporters who aren’t any more … or who are deep in doubt

The result of Trump’s noisy and erratic first hundred days is that many of Trump’s strongest and most vocal supporters are doubting him and becoming openly critical of his accomplishments. While a hundred days is a rather short yardstick, it is usually any president’s most effective period because it is his honeymoon period with congress. The Trumpet’s relationship with congress ended the day he took office.

It’s been the most contentious hundred days most of us have ever seen. Some would say that is because he is fighting the establishment, but many radio commentators who supported Trump and campaigners who worked hard for him say they are upset because he has caved in to the establishment and appears to be owned by the establishment. Their concern is not that he didn’t accomplish anything enduring in his first hundred days, but that what little he did accomplish moved in the wrong direction:

Michelle Dallacroce, an anti-immigration activist, is more pointed. Immigration is “why we voted for Donald Trump,” she said. “This could be the most elaborate reality show. I’m wondering, was this all an illusion for us, using our movement so he could get in there?”

It’s the big-talking flip-flopping that getting to them.

Paul Joseph Watson says,

I guess Trump wasn’t “Putin’s puppet” after all, he was just another deep state/Neo-Con puppet. I’m officially OFF the Trump train.

Mike Cernovich says,

Today over 500,000 people have watched my videos and streams. 90% are @realDonaldTrump supporters, none want war with Syria.

Ann Coulter:

Those who wanted us meddling in the Middle East voted for other candidates.

    Too bad Haggith’s girl Hillary didn’t win the election eh?
    I’m tired of all these jackasses that NEVER WERE for Trump who are now gleefully CLAIMING that Trump’s supporters are ditching him now (I guess David must have missed the crowd at Trump’s “anti-correspondent’s dinner” rally the other day.
    Show me a man or woman who has reached any high level of achievement who ISN’T a narcissist. Is David claiming HE isn’t?
    Trump was NEVER going to have a “honeymoon” period with Congress. If he had any support from the so-called conservatives his first 100 would have been even MORE successful.
    And to those who bitch about Trump inviting swamp-critters in to his administration – if I need to retrofit my yacht I’m NOT going to be calling a demolitions expert, I’m going to be calling on the guy that knows yachts, and expect him to follow my design plans. I don’t know what to spec out or how to do the nuts-and-bolts work, that’s why I hire a pro. I just know what I want the end result to be, and if I’m not getting it, I fire the first guy and go on to the next.
    Is Trump everybody’s perfect President 100% of the time? Of course not, nobody could be.
    Does he smell as bad as Hillary? Not possible.
    Am I so well versed in all aspects of everything that is going on in the nation/world/Presidency that I am qualified to claim that Trump is fucking up in ANY aspect of his term? No. I’m not. And neither is Haggith or anyone else who basically is just concerned with putting out their next op-ed article.
    I am willing to wait at the table and see what the chef delivers for the proof is in the pudding.

      Trump IS NOT a politician. He is a business man and a DEAL MAKER. Deals are made on many a golf course. Are good deals made from a POSITION of WEAKNESS? Never. Do good deals result from give and take? Yes. Should a good deal maker change their positions based on new/further information? Yes.
      If people didn’t know that Trump would most likely maintain this country’s Zionist bent, that’s their own bad. Does that make me happy. No. Would I have expected otherwise from Hillary?
      Can Trump be both Globalist AND Nationalist? Of course! This day-and-age you can’t escape living in a global world. That doesn’t mean you don’t Put America First.
      Be realistic, reasonable, and patient.
      And instead of bitching about Trump do something that will actually make a difference, get down on your knees and ask the Lord to move him according to His ways.
