Trump supporters are cult members, says Asbury Park Press


If you support former U.S. President Donald J. Trump or his ideas, you’re part of a cult. That’s the message in today’s Asbury Park Press, a Gannett owned newspaper that serves the Jersey Shore.

In a “For Subscribers Only” article published by Chris Stiles of criticizing former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie for his support of the former President, Stiles and the newspaper went on to call Trump supporters “cult members” and defended Wyoming’s Liz Cheney as she is under attack from the cult.

“Cheney is publicly repudiating the Cult of Donald Trump and wants to salvage her party before it’s too late,” Stiles wrote in the Asbury Park Press article. “Christie, who had a brief stint as Never Trumper, is now pandering to the Trump cultists — albeit with his typical, thread-the-needle nimbleness.”
