As I’ve been telling people for years, politics is a contact sport and you’d better not get into it if you can’t stand the sight of your own blood. That’s why I find it incredibly hypocritical that so many people pretend to get their bloomers in a twist over Donald Trump’s “mean tweets,” especially when they’re usually in response to someone launching an incredibly nasty, unfair or untrue assault on him. Here’s an example of how much theater is really involved in politics.

We’ve all heard about the alleged bad blood between Trump and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell. Well, the instant it became apparent that Trump was going to be the GOP nominee, what did McConnell do? Did he throw a fit, call Trump a fascist and storm out of the Party, the way Democrats must’ve hoped? Nope, he endorsed Trump. McConnell issued this statement:

“It is abundantly clear that former President Trump has earned the requisite support of Republican voters to be our nominee for president of the United States. It should come as no surprise that as nominee, he will have my support.”

And did Trump fire back with a mean tweet, sarcastically mocking McConnell for their prior disagreements? Nope. Here’s his response on Truth Social:

“Thank you, Mitch. I look forward to working with you and a Republican Senate MAJORITY to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”

And that’s how politics is supposed to work. It’s like a prize fight: you might bruise each other while it’s going on, but once it’s over, you shake hands and get back to work. It’s only the people who let politics become an all-encompassing obsession who can’t be civil to people they disagree with in any way. That’s why Democratic Party politics has become more like a religious cult that chases away anyone who questions the dogma in any way until there’s nothing left but a fanatical group of hardcore Kool-Aid drinkers.
