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.
