@POTUS Trumps the Haterz

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:

  1. He never fought back when the left­ist media relent­lessly painted him as a slug­gish thinker.
  2. 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!

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:

  1. He never fought back when the leftist media relentlessly painted him as a sluggish thinker.
  2. 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.

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.
