Patricia McCarthy, a former assistant director in the Department of Justice, recently said on the standoff between the president and Congress, “It’s part of a conspiracy to sicken America with a truth-resistant cancer based on hatred of Trump for his many successes, record-low unemployment, a roaring economy, his unwavering support for Israel, the revitalization of manufacturing in the U.S., tax cuts that have worked spectacularly on several levels.” Her metaphor of cancer is powerful and unfortunately true.
Democrats hate Trump not really for his successes or any of that. They hate him just to hate him. No reason, no rationale, no thought. Some time ago, I asked a pickleball friend what he didn’t like about Trump, “He’s a liar,” he shouted. I thought he was kidding. I then pointed out that probably everybody in politics and most people in life can be accused of that, but it didn’t matter. He hated Trump just because well, he just hated Trump.
There’s no reasoning with people like that. Consider this: Donald Trump at one time was the toast of New York. They ran articles on him in the newspapers and magazines, the he way he dressed, his limousines, his buildings, his hair, his family. They sought his opinion on men’s shoes, women’s clothing, babies, cars, just about everything. He was on talk shows, and the almost 100% liberal audiences cheered him wildly.
What changed? What changed is that he ran for president opposite lefty favorite Hillary Clinton. Overnight Donald Trump became the most hated man on the planet. Not for anything he’d done or said, but because he dared stand up to the lefty establishment. The more critical and bitter the criticism they poured on him, the more effectively he fought back. Rather than whine and fold, he stood tall and clobbered them. And he knocked them out.
Now there’s no forgiving him. Donald Trump beat them and now he’s about to take the entire leftist infrastructure down.
