Trump Makes His Enemies Dance Like Puppets – and Makes It Look Easy
President Donald Trump has an uncanny ability to crack jokes that make his enemies melt into sputtering fits of rage. The president’s Twitter feed is a modern bully pulpit that allows him to speak directly to his base.
Democrats, who are not in on the joke with Trump and his supporters, take everything he says literally – and then proceed to amplify otherwise silly statements that make Alex Jones’ conspiracy theories look tame by comparison.
At least Alex Jones always quotes sources when he says something. What’s the excuse from elected Members of Congress, Harvard professors and news anchors when Trump Derangement Syndrome overtakes them?
Liberals are currently fixated by the idea that Donald Trump will not leave office if he loses his reelection bid in 2020. The Democrats are, of course, filled with existential dread at the idea that the American voters would choose Donald Trump over their nominee a second time.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is leading the charge. She told the New York Times that unless Democrats win overwhelming majorities in the House and Senate in 2020, a losing Donald Trump would stay in office:
“He would poison the public mind,” intoned Pelosi. “He would challenge each of the races. He would say you can’t seat these people.”
Not only will Trump not leave office, according to Pelosi. He’ll prevent a Democrat-majority Congress from being seated. There won’t even be a Congress – it’ll just be Trump running things!
Not to be outdone, Joy Reid of MSNBC amplified the conspiracy theory, telling her dwindling audience, “He [Trump] doesn’t have any intention of committing to a peaceful transition of power.”
What? It looks like Joy Reid has decided that Donald Trump has already lost the 2020 election, and Democrats should therefore act now to stop him. You know, BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!
Continuing her not-at-all crazy analysis of an election that hasn’t taken place yet, Joy Reid continued, “He’s got monarchists in his party who are willing to give up their authority, as Congress. They’re willing to give up their authority in order to be obedient to him.”
That’s funny, because the rest of America seems to recall Republicans in Congress lining up to demand that Trump apologize to former President Obama, for stating “without evidence” that Obama had spied on his 2016 campaign. How did that turn out, by the way?
Chris Cillizza, the editor-at-large of CNN, wrote, “It’s not much of a stretch to imagine that Trump, if he does come up short in the 2020 election, would not go quietly into that good night.”
We all know that the president is a voracious media consumer. He’s seen all of those reports and has had time to think about them.
But unlike most politicians, Trump knows exactly how to make his opponents screech and fall on the floor like toddlers who have just been denied their favorite toy at the store.
Jerry Falwell, Jr., the president of Liberty University, sent out a tweet stating, “I now support reparations – Trump should have 2 yrs added to his 1st term as payback for time stolen by this corrupt failed coup.”
Most normal people would recognize that as a hilarious joke with a grain of truth to it. The Democrat Party, the mainstream liberal media and our own intelligence agencies did in fact steal the first two years of Trump’s presidency.
Imagine how different diplomatic and foreign policy relations would look right now with Russia, for example, if the Russian collusion hoax had always been treated like the hoax we all knew it was.
Trump saw Falwell’s tongue-in-cheek tweet and instantly recognized it as catnip for his enemies. Trump re-tweeted the message, adding, “They have stolen two years of my (our) presidency (Collusion Delusion) that we will never be able to get back.”
And we’re off to the races again! Notice that neither Trump nor Falwell stated that Trump would not leave office if he loses in 2020. They didn’t have to.
The left just assumes this as a matter of truth. Trump is a dictator in their eyes, so they will now proceed to foam at the mouth.
Rolling Stone was first out of the gate, publishing an article titled, “Will Democrats Have to Do More Than Defeat Trump in 2020 to Get Him Out of Office?”
Harvard law professor Lawrence Tribe stated that Trump is now going to “stage his own coup” if he loses. The hysterics will only get worse from here.
