I know exactly what the smart-set will say. Let it go! Focus on the future of the country! Dont re-litigate the past. Enough with fake news, and witch hunt, and crooked Hillary. Know what I say?
Please, Mr. President. Do the exact opposite.
President Trumps reelection campaign kicked off this week at a raucous rally in Orlando that must have exhausted Joe Biden just watching. The familiar chants returned. Build the wall! Lock her up! CNN sucks! (My personal favorite.) Also returning were the familiar critics who decried them.
The aforementioned news network we love to hate broke away from covering the newsworthy event because their feelings were hurt. Or perhaps they wanted to protect their five viewers egos. Host John Berman and analyst David Chalian fanned themselves from their cable fainting couches.
If the test tonight was, is Donald Trump going to seize this moment to frame his argument as to why the American people should renew his contract for another four years? Or is he just going to give us the Trump show and air his grievances and start the bashing of the free press? He shows no desire to do something different, whined Chalian.
Wouldnt they love it if he did?
No, the truth is President Trump can and should do both. Yes, the economy is roaring. Working folks wages are up, their tax burden is less, and unemployment is down in every demographic. Regulatory reform, prison reform, military reform, border enforcement The list is remarkable. But so is the opposition to the man who made those things happen.
I dont have enough column space to rehash the entirety of the deep state subterfuge undertaken by those in the highest ranks of our law enforcement and intelligence agencies while Donald Trump was a candidate. After that, we came through an unprecedented forty million dollar investigation of Donald Trump since hes been in office. After that, the Democrats on Capital Hill as well as the Speaker of the House continually accuse him of a cover up and threaten impeachment on a daily basis over an as-yet-to-be-defined or substantiated crime.
All the while, a hyper-partisan news media fan flames for clicks on their websites and viewers to their shows. Is it any coincidence Rachael Maddows enormous ratings during the lead up to the Mueller report came crashing down once the report was released? Maddow played this game before with Trumps taxes if you remember. Sold as a HUGE news story, she was going to expose his dirty financial deals! Her ratings were through the roof that night.
Viewers tuned in to learn she had a 2005 return that showed Trump paid his taxes. (Cue slide whistle and sad trombone.) Her ratings bottomed out again.
Its sick. Truly. This kind of crazed hostility is unprecedented. Of course the American left and the media (but I repeat myself) want Trump to stop revisiting the past. It makes them look terrible! But it reveals something more important.
Coupled with his economic successes, President Trump made a simple statement that I believe summarizes the essence of his entire presidency as it relates to his voters. While all of these people seem to be zeroed in on Donald Trump, their real enemy is anyone who votes for him.
The Democrats do not care about Russia. They only care about their own cynical power. They went after my family, my business, my finances, my employees, almost everyone Ive known and worked with. But they are really going after you, said Trump.
Bingo. And thats the biggest point he can make. And he must make it over and over again. Donald Trumps campaign and presidency has been under assault from the beginning to teach anyone who dares support him that he will not be tolerated. Washington does business their way, not your way. The swamp intends to teach you that lesson through their treatment of Mr. Trump.
Sadly, Trumps political enemies are your political enemies. Im sorry to say it, and I know there are some who feel thats divisive rhetoric. But I believe the left when they call us deplorable or smelly Wal-Mart people or gun nuts or racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic, religious zealots.
Ill never forget the day I heard MSNBCs version of the Mooch Donny Deutsch -very specifically say he was no longer content to go after Trump. He suggested all who vote for him must be made to pay for our sins.
If you vote for Trump, then you, the voter, you, not Donald Trump, are standing at the border, like Nazis going, 'You here, you here.' I think we now have to flip it and its a given, the evilness of Donald Trump. But if you vote, you can no longer separate yourself.
Trump voters know 2020 is just as much about them as it is about the man for whom theyll cast a ballot. Democrats represent government on steroids. Not a one of them wants less of it. All that stands in their way is Trump and his voters.
It will be a colossal fight. Thank God we finally have a prizefighter. As for me, Im enthusiastically voting for Donald Trump again next year. Sure, for his policies. But mostly because we share political enemies.

Thank you, Kaslin, for the article. It is all so true.
We can all help. I like the idea of the Donald’s supporters lying to pollsters. The Dems should be fed misinformation.
The large, boisterous rallies are only the tip of the iceberg of his support. Dems should be made to choose to believe their eyes or the polls. The doubt scares them. It causes them psychological distress.
We have no wall.
Mexico has not been charged to pay for a future wall.
The invasion is at all time highs.
Military has been sent to the border only to be disarmed by the Mexican military and to paint stuff.
Hillary is not in jail.
Have patriots been had again?
I was wondering the same. I think it’s perfectly reasonable to retort that President Donald J. Trump never had any reasonable likelihood of delivering those outcomes. However, continuing to believe in them - four years later, as if they were shiny new concepts - makes the attendees seem rather divorced from reality.
Great article. Thanks for posting it.
He will have 400 miles of wall built by next year.
What have you done to get it done?
NeverTrumpers refuse to admit they were wrong.
There’s no “question that remains”.
You can thank the GOP and Koch brothers for no wall money
Trump is fighting all buy himself..
The GOP is a total waste
I hope he starts hammering them at his rallies. He doesn’t even have to call them out by name, all he has to do is point out that their is NO Political Party working towards the goals of the people in the audience.
Fear no, young man, Have you ever heard the phrase 'body politic?' Well, it is the mass of political ideas, it has inertia. and it takes a while to change it.
If POTUS had come in and attempted to all of what he promised, he would have failed at it all. But look what he has done! And he is shaping the body politic to his liking, i.e. public opinion, and scattering his political enemies. That includes the jug-eared jackass and his butt-buddy Michael, who caught a private jet of out the country a few days ago. Hmmm?
And the Senators and Congressmen who have not treated him with respect have no career after the primaries... You think ole' Donald is going to forget what they did. He is on record of saying that his biggest failing is that he tends to hold grudges longer than he should.
I love the guy.I tried to second guess him five or six times after he was sworn in, each time I was proved wrong. Now there is nothing I can imagine that he would do that would make me turn a hair. Go Trump, KAG.
I say "patience" is the word for now.
I don't think DJT is at all like Mr. "read my lips."
No kidding. What of it? I don't care about the GOP, they are a tool to be used. Are you going to go home and polish your bullets and dream of revolution while the socialists rule your children?
Maybe if the USA collapses into socialism the “elites” like the Krotch Bros will actually become patriots and conservatives. I consider them neither.
But they are really going after you, said Trump.
Yep. Us bitterly clinging WalMart shopping smelly basket of deplorables.
They hate us. Theyve come right out and said it to our faces.
Its time we believe them.
See my tag line.
Bill OReily says that Trump should drop the whole Russia-gate matter, now that he has won.
As usual, Bill OReily is full of shit...like all other establishment pukes.
And he's not even at the end of his first term.
It's going to be a sad day when his presidency ends.
What does the rest of the conservative electorate have planned to take the place of the one-man reform movement known as Donald Trump?
Are Never Trumpers ever ashamed that they let this fantastic old guy do ALL the heavy lifting? Do they think everyone should just sit on their asses and take pot shots at Trump, even though he is one of about THREE people in the whole USA trying to reverse our race down the pipe?
What exactly do you expect a single human being to do, above and beyond what Trump is doing and has done, ingrate?
Meant for SENTINEL, not bray. Sorry bray.
