Eric Trump showed that the apple doesn’t fall far from the delusional tree, telling the three-headed halfwits on Fox and Friends that 95% of the country supports his father, especially in his war with the media. I’m sure that means that all of the polls that show otherwise are fade. Everything in Trumpworld that they don’t like is fake.
This total detachment from reality is a hallmark of Trump, his family and his supporters. Absolutely any poll or news story that makes Donald look like less than a hero is fake. It must be fake because if it isn’t fake, that means they’re wrong. And they’re never wrong. They make take one position one day and declare that all other opinions are false and fake, then switch the next day to the very position they said was totally fake and their old position then must be fake. It’s quite pathological, and very similar to the mental habits of cult members.
On Wednesday, Eric Trump confidently told the hosts of “Fox & Friends” that the American people are overwhelmingly on his father’s side — in fact, to the tune of 95 percent of them!
“My father is in there, and he’s fighting every single day,” said Eric. “And he has to fight against the media. He has to fight against these lunatics. And guys, I’m telling you, 95 percent of this country is behind him in this message. I mean, people love this nation.”
President Donald Trump has had one of the most consistently anemic approval ratings of any modern president, with his average hovering around the mid to low forties and occasionally the high thirties throughout his term, and his current aggregate rating on RealClearPolitics standing at 44.4 percent. He isn’t even at 95 percent with Republicans, who, according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll, give him a net 72 percent approval.
He’s like those old Bub Uecker commercials where he walks around the stadium saying “These fans, they love me” while they tell him to get lost. Except that was intended to be an absurd caricature. Trump has brought that cartoonish character to life.
