The breakout star of Wednesday night’s dueling town halls is actually not a supporter of President Donald Trump, according to the Miami New Times.
The local paper followed up with Paulette Dean after she complimented Trump for his smile, vaulting her to temporary internet stardom.

“I wish he would smile more and talk less,” she told the local paper
The New Times later added a post-publication note that she was referring to the “talk less, smile more” line from Aaron Burr in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway hit play, “Hamilton.”
“I think the man has a nice smile,” Dean said. “However, I’m not a fan.”
Dean, a retired professor of 35 years at Miami Dade College, said Trump’s hostility to immigration and the DACA “dreamers” program to offer a path to citizenship for undocumented kids is a major sticking point for her, leading her to lean Biden.
“I know these kids are the cream of the crop and are so worthy, and I was very concerned that the rug would be pulled out from under them and they would be sent back,” she said.
When the paper asked Dean to elaborate on her qualms with Trump, she said the president “steps in it every time he opens his mouth.”
