Trivia Challenge: Do we hate them more than they hate each other?
No holds barred, anything goes, catch as catch can–that’s how the worst fights are.
Crazy Uncle Joe (Biden) recently complained that Trump ran the meanest and craziest political campaign he’d ever seen.
Well, guess what, Uncle Joe? You and your career-politician cronies have been living large for decades at the expense of us taxpayers and other deplorable bitter clingers.
Here’s the thing, though.
Tread on deplorable necks long enough, and they start to exhibit the same predictable behavior. They start to get mean, and they start to act crazy. And then they start to band together. They start looking for the same solutions. They become a movement-in-hiding–a silent majority.
And then someone like Donald Trump appears.
He doesn’t like to be tread on. He acts a bit crazy. He says deplorable things. He fights to win and doesn’t care if you call him a meanie-head. He doesn’t care what you do to him so much as he cares what’s been done to his fellow Americans–fellow Americans who in many ways are different from him only because he was born with better luck.
And that’s how he becomes the unexpected, unstoppable, unstumpable head of a movement that he’s leading by example. Mock the MSM! Ignore the anti-American haters! Throw thirty years of “neo-conservative” wisdom out the window and over The Wall! No more political correctness! No more pointless wars! No more “happy holidays” when it’s actually “Merry Christmas”! No more cultural vandalism just to exploit cheap foreign labor! No more business as usual!
No holds barred, anything goes, catch as catch can–whatever it takes this side of the law to Make America Great Again!
Now, in fairness, this level of courage and this style of fighting is not for everybody. People like Joe Biden talk a big game–“I’d like to take Trump behind the gym!”–but the truth is, they love exploiting life in The D.C. Swamp. They love acting tough but not getting their knuckles bloody.
Same goes for Obama. He’s smart enough to know when to avoid a fight. He’s also stupid enough to pick the wrong fights when he finally decides to get tough. Just look at how he botched his own baby, Obamacare. He talked a tough game for years, but in the end he compromised with the same insurance companies he had attacked all along.
And now he’s doing it again: talking tough but then turning tail.
Literally mere days after calling for a full investigation into the absurd “Russians hacked our election” conspiracy theory, now he’s singing a different tune altogether.
As Breitbart News reports, President Barack Obama on Tuesday emphatically denounced the conspiracy theory saying Russians successfully tampered with the American voting process. In an interview with The Daily Show’s latest insufferable, sanctimonious, smarter-than-thou host, Trevor Noah, Obama sang this tune:
“We were frankly more concerned in the run up to the election to the possibilities of vote tampering, which we did not see evidence of. And we’re confident that we can guard against. … None of this should be a big surprise. Russia trying to influence our elections dates back to the Soviet Union.”
Pot, meet kettle.
Did it dawn on Noah to mention the time Obama’s administration was exposed hacking into German computer systems and Angela Merkel’s emails?
I didn’t think so.
Did it dawn on Noah or Obama to admit that ALL countries are CONSTANTLY trying to “meddle” in each other’s business? It’s called statecraft when Americans do it but a dangerous violation of human rights when anyone else does it.
Crafty as always, Obama would rather land a few rabbit punches than honestly grapple with reality.
Notice what he’s doing.
First he’s saying that the Russians messed with our election, because that’s just what Russians do.
Then he’s moving past this assertion without providing any PROOF that the Russians did what he says they did IN THIS CASE. History is a valuable tool for understanding an opponent, but it is not the same as evidence of what they did in the here and now.
“What’s happened to our political system where some emails that were hacked and released ended up being the overwhelming story, and the constant source of coverage – breathless coverage – that was depicted as somehow damning in all sorts of ways when the truth of the matter was it was fairly routine stuff?”
Finally, having dropped two lazy assertions, he moves past the entire controversy like it’s no big deal. Why? Because he doesn’t want to draw any more attention to what is in the emails, regardless who leaked them. This is because he knows the revealed contents are damning the entire Democratic establishment and he just wants to ride into the sunset in his last weeks in office.
Considering how aloof and careless Obama is being about, oh, ya know, America’s entire national security and election process, it’s no wonder the White House is in such chaos.
As The American Mirror notes, as of today, “Maybe two of America’s adversaries meddled in the presidential election — or maybe none at all.”
As you can see for yourself, White House spokesman Josh Earnest got confused during his daily briefing today and mistakenly said “China” was behind the election-related hacking.
Sometimes, the mask slips.
This is what happens when your leader is asleep at the wheel, “working for the weekend” on a presidential scale: the cast ends up getting their daily scripts confused.
It’s not surprising that the White House is in total chaos. They haven’t had to fight anyone like Trump before. And they haven’t had to listen to We The People for too long.
