He doubles down on his outrageous statements more than Michael Moore doubles down on ordering supersize French fries at McDonalds. His approval rating hasn’t hit 40 percent in Gallup’s daily tracking poll since July 11th.
Congressional Republicans haven’t helped President Trump on the legislative front. Obamacare is alive. Tax reform doesn’t look good. The disastrous Iran Nuclear deal has yet to be torn to shreds. Construction of the border wall has yet to begin. Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan are pitiful negotiators. They managed to increase spending in the May short-term budget bill despite promises to the contrary. Mitch McConnell likely would have danced naked on the senate floor had Chuck Schumer asked him to.
Despite President Trump’s puerile rants and Congressional Republicans’ gross incompetence, Republicans are in great shape to make gains in the 2018 midterm elections and win the 2020 election. Why, you might ask? The answer is simple: they aren’t The Left.
Republicans have no better ally than the media. The media abhors Republicans and make very little effort to be objective. In June, Project Veritas went undercover with CNN Producer John Bonifield, who admitted that the network’s incessant coverage of the Russia scandal was “mostly bulls–t“ and that it was being done for ratings. MSNBC has a plethora of leftist shills, but at least they don’t pretend to be objective.
In the wake of the horrible attempted assassination of Congressmen Steve Scalise, CBS News lead anchor Scott Pelley talked about the possible consequences of “violent rhetoric.” Pelley commented, “It’s time to ask whether the attack on the United States Congress, yesterday, was foreseeable, predictable, and, to some degree, self-inflicted.” Pelley did not get in trouble with the network and remains CBS’ lead anchor on 60 Minutes to this day. Can you imagine the outrage on The Left if Pelley described the attack on Gabby Giffords as “self-inflicted” on national TV?
The Left identifies itself with vile people. The Obama administration lauded anti-Semite Linda Sarsour as a “champion of change.” Sarsour is a disgusting person. “Nothing is creepier than Zionism,” Sarsour remarked in 2012. Sarsour once called anti-Islamist feminist Ayyan Hirsi Ali “not a real woman” and said she wishes she could take away Ali’s vagina (Ali suffered genital mutilation as a girl in Somalia).
Louis Farrakhan praising nutcase Keith Ellison is the Deputy Chair of the Democratic National Committee. In 2007, Ellison compared President George W. Bush to Hitler. He said regarding the horrible September 11th attacks, “It’s almost like the Reichstag fire, kind of reminds me of that. After the Reichstag was burned, they blamed the Communists for it, and it put the leader [Hitler] of that country in a position where he could basically have authority to do whatever he wanted.” This despicable man is the second most powerful person at the DNC.
The Left nominates crappy candidates. The party of intersectionality and Identity Politics nominated Hillary Clinton in 2016, who will go down as one of the worst candidates in the history of American politics. After getting annihilated in the 2008 Democratic primaries by President Obama, Clinton nearly lost the 2016 primary to 1000-year-old Soviet Union honeymooning loonbag Bernie Sanders. After narrowly escaping Sanders, Clinton managed to lose the general election to a reality TV star. Despite being an awful candidate, Clinton checked off one major box for The Left: she fit the intersectionality demographic so often craved by the Democratic Party.
Instead of nominating someone like former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democrats will nominate someone who fits the intersectionality mold. According to a recent poll, Joe Biden would beat President Trump in 2020 by fifteen points but Kamala Harris would only win by one point. Senators Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren fit the intersectionality mold more than Joe Biden and thus one of them will win the Democratic nomination, because that is all that the Democrats care about. Harris would be a dream come true for Republicans. In January, Harris tweeted out her absurd thoughts on infrastructure. Harris recently tweeted, “For Attorney General Jeff Sessions to suggest that Dreamers are anything other than lawful is irresponsible.” This woman was the Attorney General for six years. I sincerely hope the Democrats nominate her.
I didn’t vote for President Trump in 2016 and it’s possible I won’t vote for him in 2020. It’s also possible the most likely person to knock out President Trump will be a Republican who primaries him in 2020. John “my father was a mailman” Kasich would have no chance. Perhaps our outstanding UN Ambassador Nikki Haley would have a chance if she chose to challenge the President.
President Trump has historically low approval ratings. It won’t matter if The Left continues their obsession with identify politics and intersectionality. If Trump choses to run again in 2020 and The Left does not regain some sense of normality, Trump will coast to re-election.
