President Trump Feeds Them Crow Yet Again
Rand Paul was right when he told Politico: “It’s gotten so ridiculous that someone has to stand up and say we should try to engage even our adversaries and open up our lines of communication. … We’re going to talk to the president about some small steps in order to try to thaw the relations between our countries.” … He brushed aside criticism Trump received from within the GOP as nothing more than “Trump derangement syndrome.” Paul additionally said that: “Republicans that are making the criticism are either the pro-war Republicans like (Sen. John) McCain and (Sen. Lindsey) Graham or the anti-Trump ones like (Sen. Ben) Sasse,” he said. “They are motivated by their persistent and consistent dislike of the president.” (See: GOP Senator Strongly Comes To Trump’s Defense; trumptrainnews.com 1/17/2018)
But that was only part of the fury surrounding President Trump’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Let me start with the so-called conservative talk show host Joe Walsh. I argue that Walsh misled his listenership by pretending to grudgingly go along with President Trump’s accomplishments thus far, despite his “personal distaste” for President Trump. The truth is that Walsh was and is a “never-trumper” who understood that he could make money by pretending to be quasi-pro-President Trump’s agenda. He said as much at a talk show event I attended this past June in New York City.
Walsh, et al showed their colors when they wasted no time attacking the President. American Action News (AAN) reported that Walsh: denounced President Donald Trump as a “traitor” who had “made it clear” Monday that he sides with Russia over the United States. … “What you saw was ‘collusion’ on the world stage,” (See: Conservative Radio Host Vows to Never Support Trump Again; ameticanactionnews.com; 7/17/2018) It seems to me that I recall Glenn Beck making disparaging remarks about President Trump, just before he witnessed his burgeoning talk empire begin to collapse around him. But I digress.
AAN continued that Walsh was not alone in his public condemnation of President Trump. Other antagonists and never-trumpers lashed out: “[Walsh’s] declaration – and harsh criticisms from other conservatives, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis. – came after Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin held a press conference in which Trump inferred he believed Putin over U.S. intelligence on whether Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential race. Trump also called special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into Russian’s meddling a “disaster.”
Peter King, Orrin Hatch, John Cornyn, Lindsey Graham, Ben Sasse, and Paul Ryan, joined Walsh in attacking President Trump. I pause here to point out that I have been receiving emails from Ben Sasse begging for campaign money claiming he supports President Trump. I also point out that I predicted Orrin Hatch was being infinitely less than honest when he pretended to choke back tears and said that he believed President Trump could go down as one of the greatest Presidents in history. I said at the time that Hatch’s only reason for making that claim was to give credibility to his treachery when he betrayed President Trump.
I assured all that Hatch would pick his moment; attack the President and claim that he once held high hopes for President Trump, but that the President had proven himself unworthy of such respect and now for the sake of the country he must turn against President Trump, blah-blah-blah. The media would then run with the attack as evidence that even Hatch had withdrawn his support. That’s how the evil minions play the game of destroying those We the People support.
It is as I said in the beginning, Rand Paul came to President Trump’s defense, saying the President should be “lauded and not belittled” for meeting with adversaries.
Walsh, et al attacked the President like rabid dogs when they thought President Trump was saying he trusted the word of Putin more than he did the Washington intelligence community, an oxymoron if there ever were one. That said, with the so-called intelligence community more closely resembling Shakespeare’s play MacBeth, why would it be difficult to trust Putin more than the corrupt intelligence agencies and Justice Department we have seen being examined for the past year?
However, leave it to President Trump to have the last laugh. FoxNews.com left-handedly reported that President Trump clarified his comments saying: “I came back and said, what is going on, what’s the big deal?” Then after reviewing the transcript he realized that he had said: he didn’t see why Russia “would” be responsible for meddling in the 2016 elections; when in fact he had meant to say the exact opposite.
Like rabid Pavlovian dogs, Walsh, Ryan, et al wasted no time in attacking the President, only to have egg smeared in their faces.
The bottom line is that those mentioned above hate the very air that President Trump breathes, but they at this juncture fear further alienating those of us who support the President. So as with elapids such as them, they lay in wait to strike while feigning support.
My question is why hasn’t Walsh, Sasse, Ryan, Cornyn, et al expressed such a demonstration of outrage and calls of collusion, ad nauseum about Hillary Clinton giving Russia 20 percent of our uranium? It is one thing to have the usual leftwing apologists claim it never happened but it is another if they expect us to simply take their lying word for same. Why wasn’t Paul Ryan, Walsh, Sasse, et al this upset when Trey Gowdy spent $7.1 million taxpayer dollars in his theatrical production called the “Benghazi hearings,” which served only to showcase Hillary and to remind us that there are two sets of criterion for justice? A criterion for them and a criterion for us.
Why aren’t these haters of President Trump who claim to have such concern for America demanding to know exactly what Obama meant when he was overheard on a hot microphone telling Putin to wait until after he was reelected because it would be easier for him to do whatever it was he was promising Putin. Which seems to suggest that if Putin has the goods on anyone it is on Obama. After all, it wasn’t President Trump who made that now infamous statement. And what about the alleged $400 million that went through Hillary’s hands? Why aren’t these dregs of humanity who plot to attack President Trump demanding to know what Obama bought or bribed with the pallets of cash he tried to secretly give Iran?
There’s no need to ask what they would do if Putin and said President Trump had $400 million pass into his hands. The very people who are ignoring Putin saying that Hillary had her hands on the money, would be out for blood, but as I we see in the case of Hillary they are silent. Are we simply to chalk it up to one more dishonest act in a lifetime of dishonest acts by this woman?
The list of things for Walsh and the minions like him to be outraged about is legion. Which brings me to the question: “Why is it that people have been able to find people willing to attack President Trump and yet they cannot find a single student or professor who recalls being in the classroom with Obama? Why aren’t they trying to figure out how Obama could be the Harvard Law Review “mutt-in-chief” and not be able to find one article that he supposedly wrote?
I hope Walsh enjoys the crow he must now eat. It is he who is a dishonorable human being and all those like him. And for the record, I hope he doesn’t like what I have just said.
