So now, actress Meryl Streep is taking new swipes at President Donald Trump, telling left-leaning talk-show host Stephen Colbert: “I’m scared. I’m scared by him (Trump), by his possibility.”
Then along comes Watergate whistleblower Carl Bernstein, who says the planets are lining up and warning us of a presidential implosion. Bernstein licks his lips over Trump being “boxed in” by “unquestionably massive obstruction of justice” and “possible collusion with Russia.”
CNN keeps pounding away at the Russian Concussion, frustrated that no one to date has found the “there” there to run Trump out of the White House.
Not to mention the calls by Maxine Waters, Al Green, Brad Sherman – all elected members of the U.S. House – and U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren to impeach Trump on charges that he is guilty of … um, being Trump.
Why does so much high-profile animosity seem to persist toward Trump? Well, it doesn’t take brain surgery to figure that out.
Trump has a trophy wife. Melania has a trophy husband. Their high-profile union seems to foment envy and petty jealousy among Trump’s detractors, most of whom don’t even know (or care) what a trophy is (and stands for) in the first place – except to give one to everybody who shows up.
Trump has a high-functioning brain, and he knows how to use it for maximum effect aimed at achieving optimum outcomes. He’s a shrewd and tough deal-maker. On the other hand, his clueless critics are conniving horse traders, rooted in the theory that bullshit baffles brains. They’re constantly in ill humor because they repeatedly find that such a theory rarely ever works. Moreover, they’re inclined to talk transparency out of one side of their mouths, but they’ll talk out of the other side if they can speak only on condition of anonymity.
Trump’s insight into people is as sharp as an X-acto knife. His staunchest foes’ insight into people is about as sharp as a marble.
Trump has a fast mouth. His fast-pitched words literally go unheard as they bounce off the slow ears of his adversaries. And neither the twain shall meet.
Trump wants a balanced federal budget. On the other hand, his critics have trouble balancing their own checkbooks. His critics survive and prosper only by paying their penthouse lawyers to tap into the loopholes that allow them to pocket a bunch of bucks out of the taxes you pay that are diverted to fund some mismanaged government program or grant.
Trump understands the power of capitalism and the rewards of competition. Meanwhile, his rivals believe that if all men, women and children are created equal, then it should remain that way throughout their lives by providing them with equal incomes and rewards they never earned. That’s called socialism. In the eyes of Trump’s detractors, it’s OK – even imperative — that the government rob from the well-off to prop up the deliberately ignorant, lazy, drug-addled, “you don’t know what you don’t know” busybodies — especially if the undeserving beneficiaries can vote.
Trump believes that the USA is a republic worth fighting for and preserving. His antagonists believe our republic is outdated; they would rather give away the store to the millions of wonton and needy who would offer nothing in return. Call it “mandatory charity.”
Trump believes in the rule of law – that’s what building the wall along our Southern border is all about. He supports LEGAL immigration. Not so his belittlers. U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., for example has said “we should only deport illegal aliens if they do something illegal.” She also said that building a wall “violates the rights of millions of illegals.” Huh? Want to run that by us again? (Just remember: Somewhere out there is a Mr. Pelosi; think how hard life must be for HIM.)
