I’m sitting out here amid the cacti blooms (which is beautiful but stinks by the way!), and I can’t help but wonder that all of the negative fake protests, fake Hollywood screams, and fake news on CNN isn’t going anywhere. Oh, it’s a nice plan…throw a bunch of BS at the American public, and if they hear it long enough, they’ll start believing it. Isn’t that an old Bill Clinton playbook idea?
The problem is that the American public isn’t really buying it. Let’s look at the facts, shall we? More people are looking for work than did in the previous administration. Yes, the unemployment numbers went up a couple of ticks, but it’s only because the number of people in the job market, vs. on the sidelines went up. Let’s look at the stock market. It’s setting new record highs since Trump was elected. The economy has picked up. In fact, the economy has picked up so much that FED chair Janet Yellen has told congress that the FED would start raising interest rates this year. That was something they couldn’t do under the previous administration because the economy was so weak, Obama needed all the help he could get.
More people are trusting congress. In fact, more people, according to a recent Gallup poll, trust congress than the left-wing media! CNN is in the toilet because of their fake news. Oh, I know, I read the piece that they are wearing the fake news thing as a badge of honor…where did that get Bill Clinton? And the ratings for CNN have dropped by 22% since November. That’s never a good sign!
More people think Donald Trump is more truthful than the media (especially the left-wing snowflakes!). Now, Trump only has 53%, which isn’t great, but it’s a lot better than the 37% he had when he was running. And CNN and MSNBC are in the 20’s! Journalism has hit an all-time low because of their biased coverage.
The point here is that I don’t think the left’s idea of consistently bashing Trump for four years is going to work. They really needed to select better spokespeople in congress to do the bashing if they wanted to get something across. I mean, Chuck “forehead” Schumer is terrible at it, and Nancy Pelosi isn’t even from this planet. Both need to be replaced by someone younger, more energetic, and much better spoken!
Somehow though, the left feels that if they continue to slam Trump long enough, it will get them the Senate in 2018, which is going to be a long-shot even under the best of situations. The Democrats are going to be defending 25 Senate seats. The Republicans are going to be defending 8. And all Donald Trump has to do is repeal Obamacare (which he SAYS is coming this year), give a tax break or two to the middle class, start work on immigration reform, and get Neil Gorsuch seated on the Supreme Court, and he can probably take 10 of the Democrat seats. That would mean the GOP would control 62 seats in the Senate, and that is a filibuster-proof majority.
Sorry Snowflakes. All the screaming in the world isn’t going to work. Best you try to work with the GOP before you become the antiquated party of the 20th century…if that hasn’t already happened!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
