CNN sat down with a group of rabid Donald Trump supporters this morning and it quickly devolved into the batshit ramblings you might expect from such a segment. Chief among defenders was one Susan Leamus (a New Jersey State Representative!) who went on a rather epic rant about our “lying president” and how the Donald “knows what she’s thinking.”
“We’ve got people who are in positions of power who I know for a fact are liars. Liars!” she exclaims. “My president comes on the TV and he lies to me! I know he’s lying to me! I know he’s lying! He lies to me all the time.” “I don’t believe any one of them. I believe Donald. I’m telling you, he says what I’m thinking!”“Never been involved in politics. Never had an interest in any of it. Now suddenly he is resonating. He is resonating with the people, and he is speaking our minds. Our minds. When the pundits, and the experts, and all the people who are supposed to be ‘in the know,’ and know all this stuff, and they’re so great — I know,” she said, “some of them are lying to me. Straight to my face. And I am so sick of it.”
This is the America we live in today, people. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
