Over the past twenty-four hours we’ve seen Donald Trump go completely off the deep end about the anti-Trump republican groups that are now running TV ads against him. It’s a reminder that, with Trump’s 2020 poll numbers already in the garbage, he can’t afford to lose any of the people who might have supported him last time.
The trouble for Donald Trump is that he is in fact definitely losing some people who voted for him last time. David Weissman voted for Trump in 2016, but he’s since turned rather emphatically against him, and is now working to get Joe Biden elected. After Trump’s terrible ABC News interview on Tuesday, Weissman posted this:
After watching @DavidMuir’s interview with @POTUS @realDonaldTrump, it’s really obvious that Trump has no damn clue when it comes to the #Coronavirus. He also has no empathy for Americans who have lost loved ones to #COVID. #DavidMuir
