Just recently, two GOP Senators-Jeff Flake (Arizona) and Robert Corker (Tennessee)-have announced their departure from Congress. In Sen. Corker’s case, he’s simply not running again after his term. Sen. Flake is retiring after his term is up.
Both these guys have been ardent critics of President Trump. Sen. Corker is on record with some scathing remarks. Things such as saying the President “debases” the nation, or “Trump has put us on a path to WWIII”. The Senator has also stated on more than once occasion in more than one statement that President Trump seems to have a problem with the truth.
However, I personally think Sen. Flake’s comment regarding the President is one of the best. “We expect different behavior from our commander-in-chief.”
Sen. Flakes quote pretty much sums up the problem that the “establishment” politicians have with President Trump. He’s not one of them. He’s a New York City business man with a huge ego, acerbic personality and tremendous success. President Trump is still Donald J. Trump, billionaire business man, not a DC politician.
You, of course, expect the Socialist Left (D) to be totally against a Republican president. That’s political reality. In President Trump’s case, however, he’s weeding out the non-conservatives in his own party.
Senator John McCain is another one that apparently can’t work well with President Trump. I have to say that personally, even though I voted for him in 2008, I’m disappointed in his tenure in office. I thought more of him as a man, being a Vietnam veteran who was also a P.O.W. But he’s caved too many times to the Socialists. I guess the VC indoctrinated him quite thoroughly during his time in the Hanoi Hilton.
Of course, the President himself offers a lot of opportunity for criticism. His tweets are often knee jerk reactions to whatever the situation du jour happens to be. On the one hand, he definitely lets the world know where he stands on a daily basis. On the other, he’s found a modern tech way to circumvent the Media (D), who hate him fervently anyhow. But you have to admit, by speaking his mind, he’s usually saying what a good chunk of America is thinking.
The best example of this is with the current NFL BS. The President took a lot of flak for saying “Get that S.O.B. off the field!”…at a rally. I don’t think it’s hyperbole to say there are probably millions of Americans sitting at home screaming the same thing at their TVs.
President Trump is someone who is a strong personality, who can’t be bought and knows how to get things done. Granted, in the business world, things work differently than in government. Trump the property developer expects results, within budget and within a given time frame. He’s used to dealing with unions…New York City unions. That’s the world in which he thrived.
Being born wealthy to begin with, he could have gone another route. He could have been the quintessential “trust fund kid” who just parties on family money and indulges his every whim without once adding to the family fortune. He didn’t do that.
He’s had his business failures too. Everyone does. But successful people who are true entrepreneurs usually have several until they find that one winning combination. Just because you’ve failed at something, you yourself are not a failure…. not if you don’t quit going forward.
That’s President Trump’s true gift. He keeps going forward, with the idea of “Making America Great Again” a goal, not just a slogan.
One great thing about what he’s doing, a sort of side accomplishment, is that he’s driven the true face of the Socialists/Democrats/Left out into the open, for the rest of America to truly see who they are.
Can anyone seriously look at all the Clinton scandals and wonder how in God’s name she’s managed to get away with all this for so many years?
Can anyone seriously look at Maxine “Mad Max” Waters (D-CA) and not think term limits?
Can anyone seriously look at Frederica “Mad Hatter” Wilson (D-TX) and not think opportunism 101?
Can anyone seriously look at Hank “Guam Boy” Johnson (D-GA) and not wonder what’s going on in public education?
And can anyone, seriously…look at dementia poster girl Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) …I mean, seriously?
Look at all the other vermin that the Socialist Left has allied themselves with: BLM, Antifoam, campus snowflakes and their professors…and about 99% of the media. When Barak Hussein Obama was in power, the Socialist Left felt emboldened, felt they could do no wrong. Now that The One is no longer the one, they somehow can’t grasp the idea that they lost an election, in a nation that is a constitutional republic, that allows for a peaceful transition of power.
In closing, I just want to say “THANK YOU” President Trump being an acerbic, often rude pain in the ass to the Socialist Left, the establishment politicians from both sides, to the anti-American radicals, and to the unprofessional media hacks who call themselves journalists. Thank you for helping them to be themselves. Those of us true conservative, Christian working class Americans thank you for showing us our true enemy.
