Wisconsin Trump supporters were able to see through the propaganda, and were unfazed by the controversy placed on Trump by the media.
Washingtonexaminer.com reports: WAUSAU, Wis. — Mandy Bartels came to Donald Trump’s rally Saturday wearing a “Doctors for Trump” t-shirt. I told her I had been to a lot of Trump events but hadn’t seen one of those. “I made it myself,” Bartels, an emergency medicine specialist from Waupaca, said with a laugh.
I asked Bartels and several other women at the rally whether they were troubled by the controversy over Trump’s various statements recently on abortion. Bartels wasn’t. “They asked him a hypothetical question and he answered a hypothetical answer,” she said. “It doesn’t bother me at all.”
The same was true for Carolyn Meidl, of Hewitt. “He gave an honest answer,” Meidl said of Trump’s later-abandoned statement that if Roe v. Wade were overturned there should be “some form of punishment” for women who had illegal abortions. “I actually am pro-life, but what would you do?” Meidl told me. “I don’t know what I would feel a punishment would be. The man? The woman? The doctor who does it? I hope our country never has to go back and face that issue again.”
Carolyn’s friend Kathy Jones of Auburndale agreed. She noted that still other Trump supporters did, too; she had talked to them about it a few days earlier when they were in line to see Trump in Appleton. (They didn’t get in; the line was so long that officials stopped admitting people about 100 feet ahead of Kathy and Carolyn, who made sure they arrived in Wausau early enough to actually make it inside the rally.)
