While many of Trump’s supporters are still clinging to the belief that Trump will make their racist dreams come true, some voters are starting to think that they might have made a terrible decision. As The Washington Post reports, several North Carolinians who voted for Trump now wish they could have a do-over, feeling humiliated by his “childish” behavior.
“While I thought his ideas appealed to me, since he’s been in there he’s embarrassed me by his behavior,” said 56-year-old Trump voter Annie Anthony. “I think that his language is unprofessional. He uses words like ‘sad’ and ‘bad.’ That’s first grade language. We’re an intelligent population who elected you. Represent us!”
Melissa Hight, a 62-year-old Trump voter, said she is tired of Trump’s constant bickering and bullying. “I had high hopes, but he just goes about things in a way that gets everybody’s back up against the wall,” she said. “He doesn’t facilitate working together. He comes out with these grandiose ideas, and there’s no follow through. It’s a lot of talk.”
For Michael Leimone, 41, Trump’s mishandling of the many crises that took place in 2017 was problematic. “He’s not been there when you needed him to be there,” he said. “After Charlottesville and (the hurricanes), he was out doing other stuff.”
The North Carolina focus group consisted of five Independents, four Republicans, and only three Democrats, yet all of them had harsh words for Trump. The panel described the president as “incompetent, a baffling fool, childlike, a loose cannon, an immature narcissist and ignorant.”
And this is with just one year of his presidency.
