Trump Voter's Total Devotion to President Leaves CNN's Alisyn Camerota Aghast

CNN continued its “pulse of the people” segment Monday with an interview with a group of six supporters of President Trump.


“He has no credibility for me as a president. There have been many reversals,” said former Trump supporter Sherri Underwood, who gave Trump a grade of “F."

“It’s been a painful process,” Sherri Underwood said of her re-examination of the 2016 election. She said she no longer views the Republican Party as being on the side of Americans, specifically due to the health care debacle. 

Kim Carson said she loves that the stock market is high and that unemployment is going down. However, Underwood said it’s far too early to give Trump the credit for such successes because they are the result of Obama administration policies.

Anthony Miles, who continues to support Trump, wanted to see a single-payer health care system. He also said that the system was clearly “rigged,” and if given the opportunity he would have voted for Bernie Sanders.

Mark Lee explained that he loves Trump’s idea, “America First” and says the president is not a politician. “He’s there for the little guy,” Lee insisted. He went on to say he loved that Trump was draining the swamp and that the millionaires in Trump’s cabinet were not politicians.

Lee said he trusts the president so much that if Jesus Christ himself got “down off the cross to tell me Trump is with Russia, I’d have to check with Trump.”
