Nothing in the news about the president is giving pause to Donald Trump superfan Sean Colgan.

“I still run The Longest Running PRO-Trump Rally in the Country at 1800 Thibodo Road, Vista,” writes Colgan. “The ‘Flip the 49th’ crowd bugged out (ran away) just before the primary.”

The 62-year-old Oceanside resident says he’s still out a couple of hours every Tuesday morning, where his sign for GOP congressional candidate Diane Harkey is prominently displayed.

“I was surprised about a month ago when the Flip the 49th crowd showed up,” he says. “I think they were a little surprised to see me as well. I’m thinking that the focus will be there again soon enough. If I’m wrong about that, I’ll relocate to wherever those people decide to fly their flag.”

Still riding his motorcycle with a big TRUMP sign and running his political page on Facebook (“Trump Motorcycle Guy,”) Colgan says he recently bolted signs to the side of his Honda Twinstar in favor of Prop. 6, urging a repeal of the “gas tax.”

In our seventh email Q&A with Colgan — and the first in a year — Colgan this week shared his thoughts on the Paul Manafort conviction, Michael Cohen guilty plea and other things Trump.

Times of San Diego: Michael Cohen’s guilty plea is seen by many as proof that President Trump engaged in criminal acts. Trump denies any wrongdoing despite a mountain of evidence that he conspired to silence women whose stories could hurt his election chances. Is Trump guilty of anything in this case?

Sean Colgan: I already knew that *Mr* Trump wasn’t going to be nominated for sainthood when I voted for him. Rich men pay off bimbos all the time. Since he used his own money, this simply isn’t a crime. Something that former FEC Chairman Bradley Smith has confirmed. How Mr. Cohen, a lawyer, could have been talked into pleading guilty to something that isn’t even a crime puzzled me. Until I read where his lawyer is Lanny Davis. So now, I wonder how he could have been idiot enough to have picked a Clintonite to “represent his interests.”

The president repeatedly says he’s guilty of “no collusion” with Russia in its 2016 election attacks. But do you think Trump has never lied or obstructed justice with regard to the Robert Mueller investigation? Has he always told Americans the truth in office?

After a year and a half of *intense* investigation, by Mueller AND the press, there’s still absolutely zero evidence of collusion. I believe that there’s a reason for that. Also, I believe President Trump has always been as truthful as circumstances allow.

Paul Manafort was convicted in a case unrelated to the campaign. But Manafort was Trump’s campaign manager during a time Russian sought to influence the election. Considering Cohen and recent Cabinet resignations, is Trump hiring “the best people”?

ALL presidents are surprised when the people they nominate for office have skeletons jump out of the closet. For instance, the judge handling the Cohen matter, Kimba Wood, didn’t become attorney general in the Clinton Cabinet because of NannyGate.” She was also once known as “The Love Judge” because of her involvement in her boyfriend’s divorce. I don’t know that Trump’s record on this is better or worse than any other president.

Rep. Duncan Hunter and his wife face criminal charges — accused with great detail of using campaign funds to pay personal expenses. Are these accusations credible? If so, what should Hunter do? Fight or resign?

I must admit that my focus has been on the 49th District race. So I have no idea (or opinion) on whether Rep. Hunter and his wife are guilty or innocent.

If Mueller issues a report listing credible, provable evidence that Trump broke the law or obstructed justice, what should happen next? What should Congress do with any report?

*IF* Mueller should come up with real evidence of illegality, it should be acted on. But, again, it’s been a year and a half and there’s still no evidence of collusion. Also again, I think that there’s a real good reason for that.

Melania Trump gave a speech against cyberbullying on the same day Trump used Twitter to attack his critics. Should Trump cease using Twitter, or just soften his tone?

“Cyberbullying,” like any other kind of bullying, is a term that can only apply when it’s directed at someone too weak to defend themselves. A high school freshman can insult the Prom King, but that’s not bullying.

All presidents have their own way and style of communicating with the American people. FDR had the “Fireside Chat,” a one-way form of communication that didn’t allow the targets of his ire to respond. Anyone having a problem with what President Trump has to say about them (people who can hardly be rated as helpless, BTW) do have the means to respond. As for the “tone” of our president’s tweets, that would depend entirely on what he’s tweeting about.

Elections and polls are pointing to a “Blue Wave” of Democratic victories in the November midterms. Will the Congress flip? If not, why not?

The polls in 2016 showed that Hillary would win, and win decisively. Judging from the responses I get in this bluest of blue states (because of the sign on the back of my motorcycle and from my wearing a “MAGA” hat just about all the time), I’m looking forward to what I call a “Scarlet Tsunami” this November. Because We The People are getting just a little bit tired of the shenanigans of the Democratic Party.

What is the best strategy for Republicans to retain control of the House and Senate? Should candidates embrace Trump or distance themselves from him?

Since I think We The People are getting just a little tired of the shenanigans of the Democratic Party, and since THE guy to put an end to those shenanigans is Donald J. Trump, the winning strategy is as shown in recent elections throughout the country (where the GOP won five out of five): lock arms with our president.

Tariffs imposed by the White House are beginning to bite American farmers and others industries. Was this a mistake? Should Trump change tactics?

We’ve been allowing China (as only the most grievous example) to steal our intellectual property and to *force* companies doing business there to “share” technology. This had to be stopped. Other countries have subsidized various industries, or imposed tariffs in furtherance of their national interest.

It was time to let the world know that there’s a limit to our willingness to be taken advantage of. But the pain (yes, there is pain involved) is only temporary. When our president can “level the playing field” again, the tariffs will go away.

Is the mainstream news media “the enemy of the people”? What is your reaction to the hundreds of newspaper editorials pushing back against Trump with regard to press freedom?

I don’t know that I would have used such a provocative term, but that The Press is biased is pretty clear to me.

Who do you see as the strongest potential Democratic opponents of Trump in 2020?

I’m not seeing anyone from the Democratic Party who can mount a *serious* challenge to Trump right now.
