There is a whole lot of hullabaloo over the way in which My President chooses to defend himself against the lying media/#NeverTrump coalition of nasties who unceasingly try to dog pile on The Donald. President Trump uses Twitter as his main tool to bypass the hostile press so he can speak directly to America, and he is not necessarily polite when he hits back at people who spew horrible and vicious lies about him constantly. I don’t see the problem with it, personally. Nothing Donald Trump has said about anyone is worse than what whoever he is punching back at has said about him, and since when did the rules of engagement include being gentlemanly in combat against people who are relentlessly trying to do you harm anyway?
People who hate President Trump are never going to approve of anything he says or does – ever, so their taking offense is pretty much a given, but there are people who don’t hate him who have put forth reasonable arguments as to why My Donald’s strategy may not be the smartest of moves he could be making, and then there are people like me who believe otherwise – Donald Trump should keep Tweeting and keep hitting back as hard and as often as he feels the need to against whoever he deems fit, whenever he chooses.
I’m old enough to remember how the press treated former President George W. Bush and what happened when he did not fight back, and so is BigFurHat at iOTW:
Why is George W. Bush Thought of as a Simpleton?
Dubya is thought of as a simpleton for one of two reasons:
- He never fought back when the leftist media relentlessly painted him as a sluggish thinker.
- He’s a sluggish thinker.
The leftist media have been on a furious campaign to paint Trump as a bigot, a sexist, an Islamophobe, an idiot, a madman, a fascist, a Nazi, and a father with questionable parenting skills who also has an autistic child.
These attacks are also coming from the right.
With Twitter, and his millions of followers, just inches away from the president, how can one sit idly by and by “Dubya-ed” without punching back?
You can’t. Especially when you’re not sluggish. MORE
President Donald J. Trump is a heckuva slugger, but he is certainly NOT sluggish!
Remember how Mittens Romney handled the leftist/media attacks against him in 2012? Dianny does:
How long have we been demanding that somebody finally stand up to these bullies disguised as “journalists?” How long?
When Candy Crowley acted as Barack Obama’s human shield at that debate with Mitt Romney, who wasn’t wishing Romney had the stones to tell Candy to shove it?
During his entire second term, George W. Bush was eviscerated by the Enslaved Press.
And how many of us wished just once Bush would give them back some of the crap they were tossing at him?
Mika and Joe are not innocent bystanders who were simply minding their own business when suddenly Big Bully Trump came at them.
For months now, they’ve been calling the President names, attacking his family, attacking him, mocking him, insulting him.
And in two tweets, President Trump sent them scampering like third-grade bullies who finally met their match.
The Enslaved Press lives under the false notion that attacks are a one-way street. They can say anything, make any claim, and attack the President with impunity. But the President must never respond in kind.
George W. Bush was willing to play by their one-sided rules. So was Mitt Romney.
But Donald Trump won’t play their game. RTWT
No, President Donald J. Trump won’t play their game by their rules; he will hit them over the head with the board, make them choke on the tokens and throw the table across the room after them as they run screaming for a safe space – and I love him for it. The time of the”roll over and expose your belly to the enemy” in American leadership has passed, thank God. MAGA!
