Trump’s rally failed and his polls are slumping, so naturally he’s blaming foreigner interferencePosted by Thomas Bush / June 23, 2020
Donald Trump is having a rough campaign, and it’s barely started. His much-hyped return rally in Tulsa was, in short, a big ol’ dud. The venue could hold nearly 20,000 people, but only about 6,00 showed up. Trump was allegedly furious about the poor turnout. Trump’s campaign tried to spin the poor attendance, but even Fox News didn’t buy it. The mayor of Atlanta called the event an embarrassment.
According to a Michigan pollster, Trump’s Bible photo op was a total catastrophe, leading to an immediate dip in his numbers. The now infamous (and embarrassing) Bible photo-op was an obvious attempt to pander to his religious base. Unfortunately, he’s off the mark. Only some 27% of Americans somewhat or strongly agree that Trump is religious. Meanwhile, 55% either somewhat or strongly disagree.
He’s also getting blasted by the Republicans behind the Lincoln Project. Take a look:

In short, Trump is up a campaign creek. And what does a bad leader do when things don’t go well? Shunt responsibility, of course. And that’s what Trump is doing, he’s preemptively blaming foreign countries for his 2020 loss.
