Woman Who Said She Liked Trump's Smile During Town Hall Is Still Voting For Biden
A woman who turned to President Donald Trump on Thursday at City Hall by first complimenting him on his smile wants it to be clear that she isn't a fan of the man behind the grin and actually plans, for the Democratic Vote candidate Joe Biden.
Paulette Dale, identified last night as a registered Republican voter who voted for Hilary Clinton in 2016 and is leaning towards Biden, was in town hall to ask Trump if he wanted support for the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) policies that allow undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children to remain.
Before asking the question, however, she exclaimed that the president had a "big smile".
"You're so pretty when you smile," Dale said as Trump thanked her and ate up the praise, which drew applause from the audience.
Dale's relationship with Trump immediately sparked reactions on social media. Some commentators rolled their eyes and others, like actress Bette Midler, quipped that Dale needed better eyesight.
In a surprising turn of events, Dale - a retired professor at Miami Dade College - told the Miami New Times that she would continue to vote for Biden, even though she was pleased with Trump's response that his administration “worked very hard on the job DACA program. ”
"I wish [Trump] would smile more and talk less," said Dale, adding that the president "steps in every time he opens his mouth."
Dale, who also had a question about Trump's skepticism about climate change that she couldn't ask at town hall, said Trump was "very combative and he doesn't believe in science".
"And in his own words, he knows more than the generals, knows more than the public health experts, knows more than anyone," said Dale. "I think Joe Biden will listen to the experts."
Dale was sincere about the President's appearance: “I think the man has a very nice smile; There was no reason not to comment. Smile is important to me. I like beautiful teeth. "
Twitter responded immediately to news of this conspiracy, pointing out that Dale's praise for the president's smile ironically resembled the way many men in power - including Trump himself - look more to the looks of women than theirs Focus ideas.
