Seems a week doesn’t go by without a Trump supporter calling my in to my SiriusXM show in claiming to want to talk about one thing and then pushing another.

Clark called to say he was volunteering at a Trump campaign office where everyone was “happy” about the attacks on Trump because it only means he’ll get more support.

That made little sense. But of course, this is a Trump supporter.

When I asked if we just shouldn’t criticize him at all if we’re opposed to him, and if he criticized Joe Biden, he switched into a rant of Trump talking points.

I had to shut him down and make him address the issues — nonetheless it ended the usual way it does with Trump supporters.

Take a listen and let me know your thoughts!
