That Woman Who Said Trump Has a Great Smile at the Town Hall? She’s Voting for Joe Biden
Well, this is a nice little surprise on this anxiety-ridden Friday, just 18 days until the election. EIGHTEEN DAYS.
Paulette Dale, a registered Republican who told Donald Trump he had a nice smile at Thursday night’s town hall NBC event in Miami, says she’s not actually a fan of the big orange menace.
Before asking Trump a question about Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), she told Trump, “I have to say, you have a great smile,” adding, “You’re so handsome when you smile.”
Here’s a little reminder of that event, which I must admit, made me throw up a little in my mouth:

Despite the comments that may have implied she is a fan, Dale told the Miami New Times after the event that she doesn’t actually like the president and plans to vote for Joe Biden when early voting begins on Monday in Florida.
“I wish he would smile more and talk less,” she told the newspaper after the event, adding that Trump “steps in it every time he opens his mouth.” And lest anyone not truly believe her, she said, “I think the man has a nice smile. However, I’m not a fan.”
Suffice to say, Democrats were quite relieved:

Clearly Paulette watched Mr. Rogers as a child and paid attention: She knows how to stand by her principles without compromising decency. https://t.co/xHVxkrsBSG

She is just following the proper guidelines on how to best approach a malignant narcissist. Step 1: Flatter them to disarm them.

She basically gave a trump a "you should smile more" comment.

Wow, just goes to show that things aren’t always what they seem. This woman has depth and intelligence.

She's too old for him anyway. Anything over 25 is a complete turn off for this ..man?

Wait did she just troll him with a smile more and talk less trope women had to endure for…we'll ever? While there's an actual ambiguity of a fondness for him , but not really circling the Internet?
That's like a front runner in trolling awards on par with the Emmy… pic.twitter.com/WGz8YXIc9i
