New Poll Reveals Who Americans Really Trust; This Will Send Trump Over The Edge (DETAILS)

Donald Trump, Mueller, News, Politics

Now that the investigation of Donald Trump’s criminal activities is coming to a head, we’ve seen multiple avenues of approach for prosecutors and for the special counsel. That leaves it to Team Trump to attempt to deflect in any way possible, and with the upcoming release of former FBI Director James Comey’s memoir, A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies & Leadership, Trump has decided that attacking the former intelligence chief is the plan he wants to use.


While we must of course give credit to this administration for successfully distracting Americans on many occasions with the kind of ridiculous, ironic, or hilariously hypocritical statements that both Trump and his Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued today, it seems less likely to work in this particular situation.

First, the president attacked Comey on Twitter:

Then when Sanders was asked about Trump’s idiotic tweets, she doubled down at the press briefing, saying that “[the] American people see right through [Comey’s] blatant lies”:

Donnie and Sarah may want to brace themselves for this next part, though. According to a new poll from ABC News and the Washington Post, far more Americans see through the lies of the Trump administration, and believe James Comey far more than they believe Trump.

The poll was overarchingly about whether or not Americans support the Russia investigation — which they do, by a sizeable majority — but got even more specific than that.

From the poll:

“The Post-ABC poll finds Americans’ views of Comey include division and indifference, with 3 in 10 seeing him favorably, just over 3 in 10 unfavorably and the rest offering no opinion. But by 48 percent to 32 percent, Comey is seen as more believable than Trump, and adults disapprove of Comey’s firing by a similar margin.”

We’re pretty sure that’s the LAST thing Donald Trump wanted to hear today.
