I was going to write a post about a Donald Trump supporter going on CNN and freaking out about how Obama is lying to her and how Trump says what's she's thinking, but then reality got in the way. Here's what a supposed average American Trump supporter said during a focus type group setting on CNN this morning.
We’ve got people in positions of power who I know for a fact are liars. Liars!” she said. “I watch the TV — My president comes on the TV and he lies to me! I know he’s lying. He lies all the time.”
I’m telling you, he says (Trump) what I’m thinking!” she went on. “Never had involved in politics, never had an interest in any of it. Now suddenly, he is resonating. He is resonating with the people and he’s speaking our minds. Our minds!”
Can you feel the passion, feel the fury of an average American voter, who's sick of Obama's lies and knows that Donald Trump can read her mind and tell the world what he hears? In a followup segment a few moments later, Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord remarked how passionate she was for a person that never got involved in politics before.
Lord: When you listen to that last woman that you talked to, there's a passion in her voice and the fact that she generally never gets involved in this stuff, never paid attention. That was also true with Ronald Reagan.
Except, of course - she's the LIAR.
A woman who called President Barack Obama a liar on CNN and said she had never been involved in politics until being energized by the candidacy of Donald Trump is in fact a far-right elected leader for the state of New Hampshire.
Susan DeLemus was elected in 2010 as a Republican to the state House of Representatives. DeLemus is a “birther,” meaning she is a conspiracy theorist who believes Obama was not born in the United States.
In 2011, DeLemus was one of the state lawmakers who fought to keep Obama’s name off state ballots because they believed he was a “treasonous liar” who wasn’t born in the States, according to the Atlantic.↓ Story continues below ↓
“It just makes me want to throw up,” Rep. Susan DeLemus had said at the time. “Let’s just bury the Constitution now and have a funeral.”
As Raw Story noted, her husband was part of the Cliven Bundy uprising last year, who also ran for sheriff.
It's getting harder to trust what "average Americans" are saying when they give interviews on TV.
I never bought into the argument that people didn't turn Farook into the police because of PC correctness. Law enforcement would check out a notification of a possible terrorist if it was anonymous.
