With Trump failing as a president, and the bad news mounting more and more every day, Trump supporters have decided that they can no longer listen to all the horrible things Trump is doing anymore. Literally—they’re turning off their TVs and ignoring the news so that they don’t hear it anymore.
Several Pennsylvanian Trump supporters recently talked to The Guardian about their choice to shut out the news.
“About two weeks ago, I stopped watching the news,” Wayne Bisher, a lifelong Democrat who backed Trump in 2016, told the publication. “Because it was just like, it was too depressing. They’re still bitching about the Russia thing, which is still not going to amount to anything. I feel so much better, for the last two weeks.”
“We got fake news, like Trump said, and I’m upset with the news,” 75-year-old Bruce Garis told the Guardian. “I won’t even turn on the television anymore.”
And when the Guardian asked about Trump’s many scandals, the Trump voters deflected the question by complaining about Hilary Clinton.
“No matter how it comes out, even if it comes out that there was some shady business going on there, I’d rather Trump in there than Clinton,” 43-year-old Jack Artley explained. “So, whether he had to cheat or not to get in, I’m OK with that.”
“You really talk to people and – you know what drove a lot of people?” conservative activists Tom Carroll asked.
“Believe it or not, they won’t leave Trump for anything. But it’s not because they love Trump, it’s because they love their families, they love their country, and they were fearful of what was gonna happen if Hillary Clinton got elected president.”
How many other Trump supporters are going with the “ignorance is bliss” routine?
