Something new is now causing even more liberal heads to explode, and this times it’s a recent poll that shows grassroots Republicans actually approve of President Trump’s performance in Helsinki, this despite the very best efforts put forward by liberal Democrats and the many ‘fake news’ media pundits desperate to trash the president for absolutely everything he did, does, said and says. The Axios/SurveyMonkey poll asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Trump handled his press conference with Putin?” And 79 percent of Republicans said they approved.
And it’s one of those many exploding heads that can said to belong to none other than Joe Scarborough, faux conservative host of MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe.’ And it was during last Friday’s thrilling episode of his MSNBC program that a rather incredulous Scarborough went so far as to ask, “Who the hell are these people?” But look, Joe and his ilk are, to put it mildly, stunned that President Trump would invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the United States, when Trump’s recent meeting in Helsinki was referred to as being nothing short of treasonous by elites such as Joe.
Joe went on to ask, “Who are these people and what have they done to my party?” HIS party? Is he serious? Because to my way of thinking he most certainly is no Republican, and he really does need to stop trying to pass himself off as a Conservative, because he is anything but. What he and his commie cohost, and future wife, would be far more at home in some leftist European paradise. Because for whatever reason they both seem to hate America. And as you may recall Joe has made known, and rather loudly, that he has chosen to leave the Republican Party.
Anyway, Joe then proceeded to sound even more unhinged when he chose to put his own rather unique spin on this very same poll by making the rather idiotic argument that it showed 80 percent of Republicans apparently “think it’s okay to cower before before an ex-KGB agent, to insult allies. You do wonder, is it just a Donald Trump problem now? This is a problem with the party cast wide.” Joe again warned that support for President Trump will ultimately “destroy” the Republican Party. But then why is this boob worried about the fate of the Republican Party? He left it!
And joining in on the rant was MSNBC contributor John Heilemann who said: “I think the corruption and bankruptcy of the Republican Party has been a long time in the making, but there is no Republican Party any more in any sense that you would have defined the Republican Party ten years ago, and the way that you would have, what the Republican Party stood for, at least in the post-World War II era.” Now there’s a sensible sounding guy, right? Fits right in with the rest of the ‘looney tunes’ folks there at MSNBC and the majority of those in the ‘fake news’ media.
Obviously what Joe either fails to realize, or is trying very hard to ignore, is the fact that more and more people now trust people like him less and less because of what they perceive as being a blatant bias against President Trump. And add to that, people don’t appreciate being insulted or talked down to by these supposed journalistic elites in the fake news’ media, like Joe and his elitist drinking buddies on the D.C. cocktail circuit. They don’t believe Joe; even when he may have a point other than the one on the top of his head. Simply put, Joe as no credibility!
And Joe seems incapable of grasping that WE (the people) voted for Trump for the specific purpose of destroying that which he refers to as ‘his’ Republican Party made up of those commonly referred to as RINOs, and his Democrat Party as well! In other words, to drain ‘The Swamp’! Both parties seem to be completely out of control, believing that they are NOT there to serve the people but that the people are there to serve them. So what part, exactly, of drain ‘The Swamp’ does Joe not understand? Either get on board Joe or go curl up in a corner somewhere.
And you know, let’s not forget that it was the Republican Party of ten years ago that gave us McCain/Palin, a presidential ticket that was virtually guaranteed to lose against the young, charismatic, charming minority candidate. True, Barry ‘O’ was elected ONLY because he was black and it was decided that it was ‘time’ to have a black president. And his re-election was because those who voted him in the first time refused to believe they were wrong, and the Republicans bolstered his chances by giving us another RINO, who while he was a nice guy, was a horrible candidate.
In 2016 Hitlery ran on the same premise as Barry ‘O’, in that it was ‘time’ for a female president and her other qualifications were as fake as her sincerity and smile. She is an expert con woman and every job or office she had was a joke. For her to be ‘inline’ to be president is a slap in the face to every American. And had we had as our Republican candidate a Jeb Bush or a Marco Rubio or, God forbid, a John Kasich, the outcome in 2016 would have been the very same as that in 2008 and 2012. But we didn’t. We had Donald J. Trump and that made ALL the difference.
And I’m sorry to be the one to have to tell ya, Joe, but there is now a growing number of us deplorables who have become very determined in our efforts to ensure that the obsequious docile Republican Party is dead. We value actions over words. We prefer a president who is accomplishing great things, though he is mouthy, over one who is expert at reading a teleprompter and dispensing sweet words while completely inept as a leader. In less than two years President Trump has made far more significant progress on the truly important issues than Barry ‘O’ made in eight!
Let’s face it, President Trump has brought us the lowest unemployment rate EVER for black and Hispanic citizens, the lowest for women in decades, a near 50 year low unemployment for the country overall, and small businesses are booming. We have the highest labor participation rate ever. He has made us the largest exporter of petroleum products in the world, no longer holding our hands out to countries in the Middle East who want us dead. President Trump has also wiped ISIS out for the most part, has North Korea talking to South Korea for the first time in 65 years.
I can only assume that Joe would prefer things to have things the way they were during the era of Barry ‘O’. You know, back when we had the lowest labor participation rate since the 1970s, or 95 million people out of work, or 13 million more on food stamps, 8 million more in poverty, the lowest home ownership since the 1950s. Back when business was strangled by thousands of new regulations. Our national debt DOUBLED in eight years, billions of dollars wasted on useless projects. We had increased racial and party animus, eroding our national unity.
And that wonderful time in American history when we had a socialized health care scheme essentially shoved own our throat, causing millions of families to lose the doctors and plans they favored, and that forced costs to skyrocket while coverage decreased. ISIS terrorized and massacred thousands of innocents, Iran was given billions of dollars and a pathway to nuclear weapons. North Korea launched missiles every which way from Sunday, threatening us and their neighbors. Barry ‘O’ gave us sweet WORDS but his eight years in office were a freaking TRAINWRECK.
The ‘fake news’ media has now become the enemy of the American people! They are actively trying to bring down our government. Whether we’re talking about the Democrat Party, Hollyweird, the ‘fake news’ media or social media, like Facebook or Twitter, or the thousands of unelected progressive bureaucrats, all are part of the “Ministry of Propaganda” whose goal is the destruction of America! They use lies, false charges, character assassination, radical judges, and violence of every kind in their continuing effort to subvert our laws and silence patriots!
Liberal elites like Joe view working-class Americans as deplorables, those stupid folks in fly-over country who think that they actually ‘deserve’ a job. We’re backwards hillbillies who cling to our guns and our religion or Neanderthals who literally stink up the air with our support for President Donald Trump. President Trump didn’t create these people. It was after the Democrats had kicked them to the curb, that candidate Trump picked them up, and listened to them. They weren’t looking for much, just someone to tell them that their lives and their livelihoods mattered.
In the big political scheme of things the Democrats have no one to blame but themselves for the rise of Trump. They are who is most responsible for Trump being in office just as they were responsible for Ronald Reagan being elected. If you ignore your voters for long enough, eventually they’ll simply go elsewhere. So I don’t really know, exactly, what point Joe is trying to make. But speaking for myself, I am someone who, while I was slow in deciding whether or not to get onboard the ‘Trump Train’, I did vote for him and thus far am very glad that I did.
