If you can’t say anything else, the last year and a half has been entertaining, hasn’t it! I can’t wait for the results of the investigations, not to mention the mid terms. This ought to be a lot of fun.
I’ve come through a few Presidents in my life. But never has one stirred the pot like the present. The people that don’t like him, just don’t “don’t like him” they hate him with a fervor that’s rare to see.
Just the other day, Robert De Nero went off the reservation at the 72nd Tony Awards, the annual ceremony that’s supposed to celebrate the best of Broadway. But instead of leading off with praise for the actors and actresses, he felt it necessary to change the script. De Niro stepped on the stage to give a simple introduction to Bruce Springsteen’s Tony-nominated show, and immediately went off the rails.
“I’m gonna say one thing … F–k Trump,” De Niro declared with his fists in the air. “It’s no longer ‘Down with Trump,’ it’s ‘F–k Trump!’”
Not surprisingly, his remarks were welcomed with cheers and a standing ovation.
The right has come up with a name for such actions. It’s called “Trump derangement syndrome” and it’s probably worthy of a chapter in the psychology books. From the Hollyweird A-listers, to the lap-dog media, the hysteria around Donald Trump is palpable and dangerous.
One might ponder the hypocrisy of a person that gets paid millions of dollars to act like someone else. Worse, here’s a guy that worked with Harvey Weinstein for years, even on several films together, yet high and mighty Robert didn’t take the high road and drop a dime on that raping piece of sewer filth. Why should we listen to him? but make no mistake, many do. In fact, in October, just before the Election between Trump and Hillary, this is what he had to say in Dubai:
We have just got to stop him, period. It is disgraceful this guy was allowed to get as far as he has. I don’t understand how people could be seduced into thinking this guy has an answer. He has no answer. “There are things that Hillary [Clinton] does but she is a grown up and will be a good leader. She has to become president as far as I am concerned. I feel that with someone like Trump… if he becomes president, there will be mass protests and demonstrations. I hope to God it doesn’t happen.”
Well it did happen. And each and every day, liberals such as De Niro, and Maher go out of their way to deride him. Just within the last several days alone, we had Bill Maher “hoping” for another recession because a crashing economy can hurt Trump’s reelection chances.
“Sorry if that hurts people,” Maher told his audience, “but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy.”
I’m not even going to mention the ugliness that Samantha Bee tossed at Ivanka. That’s Trump Derangement at the highest levels.
But, here’s my biggest question. According to the Washington Examiner, Trump has logged 81 major achievements in his short term in office. Sure you can argue about some of them, such as the “almost record low” unemployment rate. It’s nothing of the sort. But then again, they didn’t change the way unemployment is calculated when he took office. It’s the same rotten system that Bush had and Obama had.
Looking at the list, I feel there’s a lot of truly good achievements he’s made that simply don’t make the nightly news. If it did, they’d have to admit he “does a few things okay”.
Here’s a few:
