First Lady Melania Trump issued a statement about the New York Time’s anonymous op-ed claiming a mole is undermining her husband’s agenda. Even though she was born in Slovenia and English is only one of at least five languages she speaks, it appears that her grasp of English, American history and simple human decency are all far superior to anyone at the New York Times.

As long as the First Lady has brought up how anonymous partisans are writing our nation’s history, I’d like to add that the fact so many people have been stampeded into believing that everything President says or does is an unprecedented outrage is a testament to the lousy history education students are receiving these days. 

I’ve already cited a number of examples of alleged “unprecedented” accusations against Trump that pale beside things that happened under previous Presidents, including the grandfather of the Democratic Party, Andrew Jackson; Ulysses S. Grant; Warren G. Harding; and others. I’ve noted that only one President really has thrown legal American immigrants into detention camps (Democratic icon Franklin Roosevelt), and that Harry Truman even cursed like a New York construction tycoon and physically threatened a reporter who badmouthed his daughter.

But I failed to mention something else: many of us who refuse to panic over the idea that Trump was elected President lived through the Reagan years. We remember how shocked the media were at the very idea of him winning. How could Americans vote for that Hollywood drugstore cowboy, that belligerent simpleton who was going to get us all killed in a nuclear war? He said outrageously provocative and undiplomatic (but true) things, like calling the USSR an “evil empire,” which caused the elite cocktail party crowd to drop their monocles into their martinis in dismay. Why, that crazy loose cannon Reagan was going to destroy the world and wreck the economy!

But when the economy boomed and the Soviet Union fell without firing a shot, we were assured that he was just an “amiable dunce,” and someone else (staffers or even his wife) was really pulling the strings behind the scenes. Later, they tried to claim he was suffering the early effects of Alzheimer’s. Eventually, his personal notes in his own hand were published, proving that his mind was sharp and clear, he was an eloquent writer, and he was acting on his strong, carefully-considered conservative principles. All the liberal media’s depictions of him were completely off-base. 

Now, we are again hearing that a Republican President who horrified the media elites and party establishment by getting elected is a dementia-plagued dunce who isn’t really in charge. I'm not saying that Trump is another Reagan.  But unemployment claims are at a 49-year low, North Korea claims it wants to destroy its nukes, and construction worker wages are up for the first time in years – and we're supposed to believe it’s all the handiwork of establishment deep staters, even though they’ve never been able to accomplish any of that in decades. 

So if you wonder why Trump’s supporters won’t desert him no matter how many times the media regurgitate this plot, it’s because we’ve seen this movie before, and it was directed by Michael Moore. We know it’s not a documentary, it’s a leftist fantasy.

    Keep after them Governor! It's amazing what the leftists and the media will do to put out propaganda to the nation to promote people like Clinton, Mueller, Rosenstein, Comey, etc to get back in power. We must do all we can to win the Mid Term Elections or those people who are dividing our nation are trying to accomplish. We need to get a new Attorney General who will go after all the top people in the FBI and The DOJ IMMEDIATELY so those people who are led astray by what the media spits out or refuses to divulge the crimes committed by those following Obama's and Clinton's agenda. The Democrats and Leftists are the people who deserve to be labeled "Unstable, and currently are doing exactly what they are accusing President Trump of doing: Leading us into turmoil that will make it impossible to recover our American Way of Life!

    Thank you for you lovely story about our First Lady. She really is a lady. She is so gracious and kind, unlike so many female celebrities with their vulgarity and hate. I have seen her show nothing but love and compassion. I am learning so much from you and enjoy reading this site. You came into my life on Easter Sunday morning with your story of your grandchildren and their stay at your house. I love your family values and your love for our country.

    We are so proud of our President Trump and First Lady Malania. We no longer depend on the main news services to give us current news. President Trump is the first president since Reagan who really cares for our country. History will show this!

    I like that our First Lady, Melania, made a statement. Too many lies about their private lives are told and no one should ever come between a husband and wife or any other people, for that matter, and especially the children. So sorry Kavanaugh's children were treated so rudely with no apology from anyone. Thank you for all the insightful comments about the gifted women (and men) that you write about. Love your TV show, your humor, and your smiling face.

    Trump is great. The more the media fear him and hate him, The stronger and more defined are my conservative views. Hey, Guv, ?? Love your Sarah. Hats ?? off to your great daughter. I think the leftist are more worried about losing their $gravey train of corrupt money. Fear is in the air.??????

    Your the man Mr. Huckabee! You are a calm in this stormy atmosphere. As always, an intelligent, well thought out commentary! I love your humor also. It’s refreshing. And I love your daughter. She is brilliant like a star.

    Exactly!! It beggars belief that someone so prominent and successful both before and during his campaign and presidency is a blithering idiot. They are just spewing this garbage because they can and because they think they really can overturn the election, or at least prevent his re-election. (We'll see about that!) And the turning of the Supreme Court is pushing them over the edge.

    Thank you for your support of President Trump. Trump was the right man at the right time, much as Reagan was. Reagan was put there by Providence to end the Evil Empire and win the Cold War; President Trump is here to expose the corruption and criminality among our political elite and return power back to the citizens of this nation. He may not be able to end the corruption completely, but if he can expose it and have some of the worst offenders imprisoned then the People can follow up. We the People failed to check up on our political elite for far too long, but Trump has taught us that we do have the power when we stand unified against the cabal that ruled us and profited from their offices by selling influence. The party is over for the cabal. We are going to win this for the People of this nation. I hope Hillary enjoys a long stay at Gitmo.
