Six months into the Trump presidency, at Ricochet, V the K explains what he likes about the current president’s performance.
I like that he doesnâ€™t let himself be a punching bag for the Democrat Media Complex. The last two Republican presidents seemed to think that defending their administrationâ€™s policies from Democrat attacks was ungentlemanly. Trump has also identified the weak point of the media establishment â€” their egos. Most of the media operatives, especially on television, are dumb, vain, and egomaniacal. Trump knows that if he pokes them, they will go into paroxysms of â€œHow Dare He Criticize Usâ€ vituperation. He provokes the very media temper tantrums that discredit the media.
I like that some of Obamaâ€™s executive overreach has been repealed, and that some of Obamaâ€™s worst policy decisions are being revoked. Weâ€™re out of the Paris â€œRedistribution of Wealth to the Third Worldâ€ Accords. Criminal aliens are being deported once again. Israel isnâ€™t being treated as a pariah state. More of this, please.
Neil Gorsuch was an outstanding Supreme Court appointment. Good Lord, can you imagine the horrible people Hillary would be putting on the court? Sotomayor and Kagan were bad enough. Try Justice Kamala Harris on for size. (Not that it would be her, but it would be someone just as hard left, just as hyperpartisan, and just as corrupt). Democrat presidents never nominate swing votes.
He adds three things he does not like.
