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.

    “And do you know…the president is black! Yes, black!”

  3. During the CNN interview, DeLemus claimed she has never been involved in politics, although she was elected to the state House in 2010, lost her seat in 2012 and won it back in 2014.
    

    And yet she says Obama “lies all the time.”

    The projection with these people is stupefying.

    Edited to add, with apologies to the people who have already up-voted the comment: The article claims that she said during the interview that she had never been involved in politics, yet it seems clear that she’s saying in the clip that Trump has never been involved in politics. So while she’s crazy, and a racist, and needs some meds, she doesn’t seem to reach the level of hypocrisy that the article suggests, unless there’s footage elsewhere that’s not on the clip.

  4. Well damn, she was voted into and out of, and back into office again, but wasn’t involved in politics…but Obama is the liar. She needs some meds and a good long look into a mirror so she can see the lying politician.
