We Didn't Elect a Pope, We Elected a Leader

With all the pious whining about the crudeness of Pres. Trump's speech, you'd think the Democrats would reflect upon their own crude members, including JFK, LBJ, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Maxine Waters, Al Franken, Al Sharpton, Harvey Weinstein etc., all who who have used crude words, phrases and actions in the course of their public and private lives. Pres. Trump is a down-to-earth “blue collar” billionaire who says what's on his mind without a “crudeness” filter. In other words, you get what you see and hear, and remember, we didn't elect a Pope, we elected a leader.

The unrelenting anti-Trump news media and disgruntled Democrats, who still can't believe that their flawed candidate, Hillary Clinton, didn't win the presidency, will jump on anything Pres. Trump says or does and spin it it in a negative way to try to diminish him in the eyes of the public. This phony “selective” outrage over his behavior is becoming quite apparent as the rhetoric against Pres. Trump continually goes “over the top”. In their eyes, he can't do anything right. I believe that if Pres. Trump came down from the Mount with 10 Commandments under his arm, his vicious detractors would criticize him for not having 11 Commandments. That's how much animus has infected the media and the Democrats, it's unprecedented.

With today's instantaneous access to communications and social media, the public is inundated with stories, some true and some false, that push a particular agenda depending on a particular political viewpoint. This wasn't the case 20 or 30 years ago. A lie reported on a media site today can be sent around the world in only a few hours, and if the lie is disproven, it is very difficult to set the record straight and overcome the lie. This is what Pres. Trump faces on a daily basis. That's why he “Tweets” like he does, as the outlets for him, to defend himself, are restricted and very unfriendly.

Nobody said Pres. Trump was an “angel” in his personal and professional life , but when his detractors criticize him constantly with overtly personal attacks, they forget that his actions speak louder than his words. With all the negative press Pres. Trump received during his 1st year in office, he has racked up an impressive record of achievements, which seem to be hidden by the news media on purpose. Starting with his unlikely election (over 90% of the media thought he'd lose) win over Hillary Clinton; he first off appointed a true conservative judge to the Supreme Court in Neal Gorsuch; he rescinded many business killing restrictions that the Obama administration put in place; he untied the military's hands in fighting ISIS which has now resulted in decimating ISIS in both Iraq and Syria; he has encouraged companies to return to the U.S., thereby creating more jobs (over 2 million jobs have been created since Trump took office); he approved the Keystone and Dakota pipelines to make us more energy independent from the rest of the world; the unemployment rate is the lowest in decades; and his greatest achievement of all, was the passage of the largest tax cut and reform of our tax code in our country's history, which has triggered the stock market to reach an all-time high. These are “wins” the “fake media” doesn't play up and report on.

As the headline of this editorial states, we didn't elect a Pope, we elected a leader who is fulfilling his promises and the expectations of the people who voted for him, even with a chorus of detractors nipping at his heels in a constant barrage of negative comments trying to undermine his presidency.

Liberals are getting close to subversion by entering dangerous waters, when their rhetoric toward Pres. Trump ceases to be constructive and turns destructive, effecting governing the country and the well being of its citizens. There is no justification in their accusations that everything he does is bad, and mean spirited to spread their ridicule to his family. It wasn't right when it was done to Margaret Truman and it isn't right now.
Sabotage is a means to destroy, and that is what the Schumer/Pelosi plan is trying to do, sabotage the progress Pres. Trump is making for our country

Can you imagine the loony left is still venerating Obama and the Clinton's as pinnacles of political purity as they denigrate Pres. Trump on a daily basis? All the evils they say Trump represents are the same evils that they have been doing for decades. Instead of bashing Pres. Trump incessantly, they should be looking in the mirror to see the real evil doers. Can you imagine any other president getting as much accomplished in one year as Pres. Trump has done with 100% resistance from the opposing party and 90% of the media? He is so much into their heads that they become so unhinged that they forgot how to govern, they have no plans except bashing Pres. Trump. A loser position if I ever saw one.

We all know that Pres. Trump exaggerates, embellishes, and is sometimes bombastic, mainly over mundane things, and then he gets accused of being an inveterate liar. Compare him with both Obama and Hillary who actually have lied over areas of national security. Examples are: Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the IRS targeting conservative groups, selling 20% of our uranium supply to the Russians, letting Hillary use an unsecured computer server as Sec'y. of State and then Obama making an excuse for her, and of course, claiming that his signature legislative "achievement", Obamacare, wouldn't cost addition money, and that you could keep your doctor and your healthcare plan. All LIES, and they have the nerve to criticize Pres. Trump? What a bunch of hypocrites !
