It’s a bad day to be Donald Trump!
Yes, arguably every day is a bad day to be Donald Trump, but the news that’s come across this morning is particularly brutal for the President, as mounting legal problems and a huge disapproval rating are sapping whatever little momentum he had ahead of November’s mid-term elections.
First things first: the Washington Post reports ominously that “winter is coming” for the Trump White House, with advisers and allies worried that “his current legal team is not equipped to effectively navigate an onslaught of congressional demands.”
Trump allies are worried that, should the Democrats take back significant seats in Congress this November (as expected), Trump’s current legal team of Rudy Giuliani (no, seriously) is so weak that they won’t be able to adequately represent him any longer.
Whatever happened to Trump bragging about how he hires the best people?! Ha!!!
There’s also a major indication in that WaPo report that Trump is legitimately thinking about whether he may be impeached — whether he admits it publicly or not (below):
“Trump recently has consulted his personal attorneys about the likelihood of impeachment proceedings… and aides have invoked the prospect of impeachment to persuade the president not to take actions or behave in ways that they believe would hurt him, officials said. Still, Trump has not directed his lawyers or his political aides to prepare an action plan, leaving allies to fret that the president does not appreciate the magnitude of what could be in store next year.”
Oh, we can’t wait to see what could be in store next year!!
One Trump ally close to the team in the White House gave the best quote of the week about all of it (below):
“Winter is coming. Assuming Democrats win the House, which we all believe is a very strong likelihood, the White House will be under siege. But it’s like tumbleweeds rolling down the halls over there. Nobody’s prepared for war.”
But wait, that’s not all!
In the midst of all this bad news for Donald’s absurdly unprepared White House, comes another little tidbit that’ll particularly piss off the Tweeter-in-Chief: his disapproval rating just hit an all-time high!
A new ABC News/Washington Post poll released on Friday morning found that an incredible 60% of people disapprove of Trump’s performance in office — which marks the highest disapproval number EVER for him.
Plus, only 36% of people actually approve of his presidency — which ties for the all-time low in his approval rating.
