This exchange between MSNBC’s Katie Tur and her panel says a lot.
They fear Trump, and now begin to see how ineffective the media is against him.
“Last week was a tidal wave of bad news for this presidency and this president, and his approval rating stayed the same,” Katy Tur said while visibly frustrated. “So I wonder — I mean, if that’s not going to move the needle, is this John McCain thing going to move the needle?”
Short answer: No. Longer answers: Hell no!
Hard to believe the Left banked on a strategy of John McCain’s death! That McCain would be able to do in death what the entirety of the Democratic swamp, aka the Obama administration was unable to do.
Did John McCain suddenly get the power of the presidency, the NSA, the FBI, the CIA, the FISA courts, and all their associated minions.
“And forgive me for being skeptical because I was under the impression, as was most people, that when Donald Trump came out and said he wasn’t a war hero — he likes the guys that don’t get caught — back in 2015, that people would care,” Tur continued. “And when I went out and I talked to Republican voters, they didn’t care at all.”
Media alert: Republicans who support Trump didn’t care about McCain.
Nor do we care about Stormy Daniels, and the host of other nonsensical “witch hunts”, melodramas, and fake news narratives the Left pretend matter.
But what we do care about is what the Left says about us.
The video continues with MSNBC contributor Jonathan Alter claiming that Republicans do not care about Trump’s behavior, saying that Trump supporters are “deluded.” Tur seemed beside herself to learn that 88% of Republicans support the president.
Such is the problem with the Left. They don’t know on what to focus. They are so rife with resentment towards Trump for beating crooked Hillary Clinton, they can’t see the forest for the trees. Thus, they live in a delusion.
They love seeing fixed polls that show President Trump at 38 percent approval and 60 percent disapproval. What they won’t admit is these polls are actually flipped. Believing their polls hearkens back to the November 2016 election where the polls failed miserably.
But when you dogmatically against somebody as the Democrats are against Trump, they only want the news they want to hear.
As they accuse President Trump of racism, misogyny and a host of other things from which they themselves suffer, Leftists intentionally disregard the economy.
Yes, it’s the economy stupid!
No polling needed to understand that the Trump economy is on a roll. America has the best economy in the world, bar none. Massive employment, with good paying jobs returning to our shores. And while Barack Obama wants to take credit for the robust economy, his words haunt him, as he said Trump needed a “magic wand,” then claimed that the new norm for GDP was 2 percent.
Trump has doubled the “new norm”, and done what Obama said wouldn’t happen: manufacturing jobs returning to America.
400,000 new manufacturing jobs and counting, Trump trumpets the “Trump norm”. Moreover, 4,000,000 new jobs created since his election, while Obama lost almost 5 million jobs during the same period of his presidency.
Trump doesn’t need parlor tricks to stimulate the economy. He just uses old-fashion expertise, something Obama lacked in spades.
Sadly for the Left, voters will make their decisions with their pocketbooks. More people working, and consumer confidence at the highest level in decades. President Trump will set records that may put things out of reach for a while. Like the 4-minute mile, or the 29 foot long jump. He has certainly raised the bar. And he’s raised it so high that even former Democrats now see the difference between Trump’s competence and Obama’s feckless leadership.
In short, the mid-terms will be brutal for Democrats. And when they lose them, there will be hell to pay for all the scandals covered up during the Era of Obama, as many Democrats will see the writing on the wall.
“Gone is the swamp!”
