WATCH: NH GOPer Supporting Trump Rails Against ‘Lying’ President

Donald Trump fan girl and New Hampshire State Rep. Susan DeLemus (R) says there is only one politician she believes in and, of course, it’s Trump.

“I believe Donald. I am telling you, he says what I am thinking,” DeLemus said during a CNN focus group of Trump supporters that aired Thursday morning.

“We’ve got people in positions of power who I know for a fact are liars, liars,” she continued. “My president comes on the TV and he lies to me. I know he is lying. He lies all the time.”

This isn’t the first time she has accused the president of being untruthful. DeLemus is a “birther” who believes President Barack Obama wasn’t born in the U.S., and tried to get him taken off the ballot in the Granite State in what was a very confrontational moment with the state’s assistant attorney general in 2011.

CNN doesn’t ID her as politician in this clip, but she was elected to the state House in 2010, lost her seat in 2012 and won it back in 2014.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
