Trump Derangement Syndrome Part II

November 14, 2017

It finally happened: the kneejerk anti-Trump media memes that stress made-up or out-of-context “gaffes” over real and serious news have become so out-of-touch with reality that even the far-left New Republic is urging liberals to knock it off because they’re embarrassing themselves.

Of course, this article still had to reiterate the left’s dearest article of faith – that Trump is just the worst thing ever and does so many horrible things for real that they don’t need to make them up. I’d just ask, if that’s true, they why do they feel that they do need to make so many up? Is it because what they define as horrible, repellent and racist are things that the majority of Americans agree with, such as that borders should be secure, criminal illegal aliens should be deported back to where they came from, and people who’ve become rich from the opportunities America provides should have the basement-level amount of decency and gratitude to stand up during the National Anthem?

Or is it because it’s hard to gin up outrage among the public by honestly saying that under Trump, the economy is growing faster than liberals said was possible, the Dow is setting new records, job-crushing regulations are being axed, ISIS is getting crushed, judges who respect the Constitution are filling the bench, unemployment is falling, America no longer kowtows to foreign tyrants, and consumer confidence is at its highest level in years? It’s hard to scare non-coastal Americans by saying all that. Maybe they could try warning that they might do so much winning, they’ll get tired of winning. Or if that fails, try to scare us by saying that too much prosperity may lead to gout.

    I absolutely love your newsletters. Not only do I get "real" news but I get my daily chuckle. Your sense of humor (and your sarcasm) make my day!
    I trust you over any other news source. Keep up the great work.
    Oh, and your daughter is wonderful! I'd say she's her Father's daughter but I don't know your wife.
    Love you!!

    Trump and team are doing a great job. I think the others are just jealous of how great America is looking lately

    I'm pretty much a lifelong NFL fan. I attended my first AFL game in the early 60's as our pathetic Denver Broncos (this year's version is reminding me of that memory). I rejoiced when they won Super Bowls in '97, '98, and '15...then something strange happened. A two-bit player who had read too many of his own press clippings decided it was time to set America straight, and thus was born "The Knee". Along with millions of Americans, and especially veterans, I was more outraged when the wimp called the NFL Commissioner wussed out and chose to look the other way. We all now know how that played out. My point in this mini-history lesson that the man who called out the NFL and reminded us all that dissing our great nation by way of so-called "free speech" rights was an affront to ALL Americans was none other than The Great Satan himself...Donald Trump. As a result of his courageous and call-it-like-it-is rhetoric, I am finding other things to do on Sundays and, much to my surprise, I don't miss the pretty-boys at all. Hearing that Marshawn Lynch of the Raiders sat with his back to the American flag in Mexico City today, but respectfully stood for the MEXICAN National Anthem is yet more confirmation of what our President had to say, and why people like me will gladly do without ANY sport in which our flag and heritage is dishonored!

    Thank you, Mr. President for galvanizing millions of Americans to do what you've advocated all along...Put America FIRST and make America GREAT again! Praying for your health and the blessing of the God that your enemies hate even more than you.

    No matter what, you cannot compete with people who are unhinged, by using rational and logical arguments to counter their illogic. An old saying goes like this: A lie travels halfway around the world before the truth can get its shoes on.
