Trump became wealthy in one of the toughest real estate markets in the world, so I can understand why he developed the habit of striking back at critics with razor-sharp elbows. But winning the hearts and minds of undecided voters is an entirely different game that requires a far higher level of finesse.
A few moments of channel hopping various news broadcasts yesterday evening yielded the same results, with virtually all of them touching on Trump in some way or another, and the same with print newspapers and their websites. If we didn’t know any better by the amount of attention he gets, one could swear Trump was still in the White House and Biden was wandering around a dog track somewhere trying to place a bet on a race from last week.
In this installment of our weekly Sunday Six conversation, PF Whalen and Parker Beauregard of The Blue State Conservative examine six pressing issues facing America with which we would be much better off if President Trump were still in office.
There are legitimate concerns about the 2020 Election, but the smart money cannot waste time debating the outcome. It is, and has been since November, a done deal. The cloudiness of the election, from judicial action in Pennsylvania to inaction by the US Supreme Court and many points in between, is a factor that will rile up people who have already acquiesced to the outcome but still smell garbage.
Members of this so-called “board” were appointed by Facebook leadership, who are overwhelmingly leftist Democrats. Naturally, those who were appointed are overwhelmingly leftist Democrats as well. It’s ridiculous. This situation is like the Los Angeles Dodgers bringing their own umpires to a game and the fans believing those umpires had credibility.
With impeachment complete, and as the book is closed on his presidency, how should Trump proceed?
Trying to drown out the voices of dissenting conservative voices will not help the conservative cause. Democrats like to claim they have a “big tent,” one that is tolerant of a variety of views. That claim is a lie, of course, and Republicans need to show them how it’s done.
Let’s take a moment to reflect on the recently completed presidency of Donald J. Trump, and consider how things might have turned out had Trump handled a few situations differently. Second-guessing and Monday morning quarterbacking, yes, but such exercises can be productive.
In this installment of Weekend Conversation, PF Whalen and Parker Beauregard of The Blue State Conservative lament the state of the country where every political grievance against conservatives moves toward impeachment.
With impeachment and the impending Senate trial, Democrats will keep Trump and the riots on the front burner of our national dialogue longer than they would have been otherwise, and they will try to get as much of their radical agenda through as possible. But hoping to distract voters from the absurdity of issues like Medicare-For-All and the repealing of tax cuts by dwelling on Donald Trump won’t work. And unless they can get questionable Democrats in the Senate to abolish the filibuster, their radical agenda is largely doomed anyway.
Of all the despicable actions taken against President Trump, nothing is more disgusting than the incessant assertion that he was Hitler reincarnated. Will anyone ever own up to the fact that this was a patently ugly and insidious lie?
Likewise, the Trump victory exposed the many frauds that used to masquerade as Republicans. These people quickly emerged as the Never Trumpers and it was clear that they had grown accustomed to their dance with Democrats. In reality, they were not far apart from Democrats. They always held the same elitist philosophy, they knew they were smarter and more sophisticated than the rubes that voted for them. Political affiliations just gave them power and influence over a different group of people.
