Trumpettes USA is an organization of women who support and stand behind Donald Trump. They have come out in defense of the Republican nominee after the recent video leak. These women have told The Telegraph in a recent interview that “boys will be boys”.
Toni Halt Kramer, a Hollywood journalist who turned into a wealthy socialite compared the 2005 audio recording of a “locker room conversation” with Bill Clinton, and the former president’s affair with Monica Lewinsky.
She said that “rejecting Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency because he wants to ‘bang a lady’ will not solve America’s problems.”
Mrs. Kramer often flies by a private jet and has a full time bodyguard, who is a trained Navy Seal. She has a body guard because she fears the security situation in her country in general, and the attacks by the Islamic State of Iraq as well as the Levant jihadist group.
Toni Kramer has been in television for 30 years, hosting shows such as Good morning LA. Even when she was a young woman in the 1970s, she mingled with celebrities. She recalled a time when Aristotle Onassis, the then husband of Jacqueline Kennedy, tried to start an affair with her in Paris.
Mr. Onassis had invited her on a work trip back to California. “I said ‘Oh dear, I can’t imagine you’re inviting me when you’re married to one of the most famous, important, fabulous, icon women in the world,” she recalled.
This is the glamorous life of the Trumpettes.
Mrs. Kramer said that she was once on a cruise near Italy with a friend, when she first heard Mr. Trump was entering the presidential race. She made the decision right then to drop everything else and help him, but she wasn’t sure how.
She came up with the idea of the Trumpettes USA to encourage women voters to vote for Trump. The idea came to her while she was at a hotel in Beverly Hills where she was attending a gala for an animal welfare charity.
“I was standing in the lobby with four friends and we decided, you know what, we’re going to do something.” She said.
Recent polls show that Trump has only 27% support among educated female voters in America, compared to Hillary Clinton’s 57%. The Trumpettes hope to change that.
Many of the members of the Trumpettes USA are socialites of the Palm Beach area, the wealthy Florida community where Trump has his luxury Mar-a-Lago private club. The ladies wear large diamond rings and drive Mercedes Benz cars.
Their campaigning efforts are in the same nature. Later this month they are planning on hosting an “adopt a Trumpette luncheon” where each member will bring along a female friend and encourage them to join the cause.
The publicity for the luncheon reads “No more Washington witches and warlocks, just sweet treats with our superman Donald J. Trump.”
Many of the ladies in the club are well connected in the high society of America. Not all have traditionally voted Republican in the past. The group includes members who have donated to Democratic presidential campaigns as well. Mrs. Kramer has said that she attended the final party that the Clinton’s threw at the White House.
“I know Hillary, very, very well personally, very, very well. And I will tel you unfortunately in m y feelings she’s the third term Barack Obama,” she said, “That’s it.”
The Trumpettes have many reasons for supporting Donald Trump, the founder said, but for most of these women it all comes down to the economy and a social breakdown that they believe has been caused by the “socialist programme” of Barack Obama.
“I think this socialist program of progressives, you are enabling people to become useless and making them useless takes away their self-respect, makes them angry.” She said.
“The group is disparaging of Black Lives Matter as people who contribute to social decay by ‘taking away respect from God and the police’”.
She also quoted the proverb that was used by the Oxfam charity to promote their projects in developing countries.
“They used to say give a man a fish and you’ve fed him for a day; teach him how to fish and you’ve fed him for a lifetime,” she said.
Trumpettes USA members have made headlines for their lack of political correctness and taste for conspiracy. Posts by Sean Bianca, a tennis coach and top blogger for the group, rant about the cost of accepting Syrian refugees into the country.
Mrs. Kramer considers herself to be a friend of Donald Trump’s. She is a member of his Mar-a-Lago club and says that she started calling him “Mr. President” long before he decided to run for office.
