There’s no doubt about it, the month of October has been disastrous for Donald Trump’s Presidency.
Trump started the month by declaring that the disaster in Puerto Rico “was not a real catastrophe like (Hurricane) Katrina”, insulted the mayor and attacked her on Twitter, and threw “beautiful” paper towels into a crowd like he was doling out T-shirts at a pop concert.
He then had to deal with rumors the Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, called him a “fucking moron”, and undermined Tillerson by tweeting that he, “was wasting his time trying to deal with little Rocket man”.
Then, Trump showed an almost unbelievable level of stupidity by saying diplomacy with Kim Jong Un, “hasn’t worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed.” – despite the fact that the North Korean leader didn’t come to power until 2011, and was only 8 years old 25 years ago.
Being nice to Rocket Man hasn't worked in 25 years, why would it work now? Clinton failed, Bush failed, and Obama failed. I won't fail.

To follow all this, the madman in the Oval Office then said “only one thing will work” in dealing with North Korea, scaring the world into believing nuclear war could be on the horizon very soon.
And all that was just the first week in October.
Since then, he’s had two members of his own party break ranks and call him out to be a liar and a danger to the world. He’s sabotaged Obamacare which will lead to a huge rise in premiums for many of those who voted for him, and got caught lying about calling the families of fallen soldiers – in one instance even telling a father of a soldier who was KIA he would “write a personal check to him for $25,000“, only to not send it.
And to top all of this off, Trump had the stupidity to tell a pregnant widow of one of the soldiers killed in the Niger attack that her husband, “knew what he was getting himself into.”
There’s way more miss-steps Trump has taken this month, to be honest these are just the things I remember off the top of my head.
One would think then, after such a disastrous few weeks, that Trump would be starting to lose voters, yes?
Trump’s approval ratings are almost exactly the same as they were 4 weeks ago:
If you look at Trump’s approval ratings since he took office nine months ago, it seems that 35% is about as low Trump will ever get.
All of this does lead us to thinking:
The Thing is This….
If Trump’s approval ratings don’t get lower after such a disastrous month, what would make them decline?
