Trump Loyalists Pay Little Heed To Revelations Rocking DC
NEW YORK (AP) – President Donald Trump’s loyal backers say they don’t know, don’t believe or don’t care about the explosive revelations rocking Washington.

That’s the word from the quiet streets of New York’s working-class Staten Island to small-town Denison, Iowa, and even smaller Rutledge, Georgia.
Trump’s firing of FBI Director James Comey has consumed Washington. Not so in many Trump strongholds.
