TAMPA, Fla. — White women helped propel Donald Trump to the White House in 2016 but in an apparent sign of concern over his current re-election standing with those critical voters, the president picked up the phone Thursday night.

During a “Women for Trump” campaign event here, headlined by White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, a loud dial tone came over the speakers. After three rings and a click, a woman answered and said it would be another minute or two for the president, prompting ear-splitting cheers from the crowd.

“We won with women. We’re doing great with women, despite the fake news, you know that,” Trump told the 600 screaming attendees during the surprise call-in. “I’m with you all the way.”

Trump often claims that he won the female vote last cycle. In reality, Hillary Clinton won women overall 54 percent to 41 percent, according to exit polls. Trump, however, did receive 52 percent of the vote among white women.

1. The story is incorrect. According to a Pew Research study

linked here at DU numerous times, Trump won fewer than 50% of white women’s votes.

4. Did you see the photo of one of his cult members

with a giant grin wearing a self made t-shirt which said, "He can grab my ...." with an arrow pointing down to her crotch? If you are part of his cult you are a mentally disturbed person to start with, regardless of gender.

9. Brain dead harpies.

That group from Mar-A-Lago who support him look like a group advertisement for plastic surgery. All looking alike as they age. All blonde, long hair, trying to look young. Sort of like Kellyanne.

13. Locking after review by forum hosts.

LBN is reserved for “important news.” This OP is just about trump’s campaigning.
Please post only news that is important in LBN. News that is interesting but not necessarily important belongs in GD. Thanks.
