Donald Trump faced a wave of mockery on social media after stating that every president should be “sharp and respected” during his recent interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News. Critics of X, including the campaign of President Joe Biden, quickly pointed out the irony of Trump’s remarks.

The Biden campaign shared a clip from the interview on X, commenting, “Trump, who told Americans to inject bleach, could barely walk down a ramp, and was laughed at by the United Nations: ‘We need a president who is sharp and respected.'” This reference harkens back to Trump’s infamous remarks during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, where he suggested that disinfectants and UV rays could be potential methods to combat the virus. However, it’s important to note that Trump did not explicitly ask the public to inject bleach.

Social media users didn’t hold back either. One user wrote, “Yeah, that’s definitely not gonna be you, Mr. 34x Convicted Felon.” Another commented, “TRUMP: ‘We need a president who is sharp and respected.’ Take your own advice, Donald. Drop out of the race.” On the flip side, Trump supporters defended him, with one user stating, “Keep repeating that lie hahaha. Just proves how desperate & dumb Democrats are as the majority of Americans can’t wait to vote for the GOAT convicted felon & make Trump YOUR president again.” Another added, “Again, this idea that Trump suggested injecting bleach is a pervasive blatant lie that is being repeated to this day. It is irresponsible but nothing new. Pretty disgusting.”

Following Trump’s conviction on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records related to a hush money payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels, several polls were conducted to gauge public opinion. According to a CBS News/YouGov survey, 57% of respondents agreed with the jury’s decision. Morning Consult reported that 54% of registered voters approved of the ruling, while an ABC News/Ipsos poll found that 50% supported the verdict. Additionally, a Reuters survey revealed that one in ten Republicans are now less inclined to vote for Trump following the conviction.

Before the verdict, an NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist survey conducted from May 21 to 23 indicated similar sentiments, with 10% of Republicans saying they would be less likely to vote for Trump if he were found guilty, while 25% said they would be more likely, and 68% stated it wouldn’t matter. The ABC News/Ipsos survey also highlighted that a slim majority of independents believe Trump should withdraw from the race and that the ruling was justified.

These poll results reflect a complex and divided political landscape, with Trump’s legal troubles continuing to play a significant role in shaping voter opinions as the election approaches.
