Better get used to the rhetoric you are hearing on the news. It will continue all the way to the 2020 election and beyond if the President wins reelection.
Yesterday was a day to visit and console? Here’s the NYT headline today:
Trump Uses a Day of Healing to Deepen the Nation’s Divisions:
As the president traveled to Dayton and El Paso after this weekend’s mass shootings, he was greeted by protesters and lashed out at rivals.
I bet you didn’t know that? Notice too, it is all Trump, not the names and charges from the left.
This in the Washington Post today:
“None of the eight patients still being treated at University Medical Center in El Paso agreed to meet with Trump when he visited the hospital, UMC spokesman Ryan Mielke said. Two victims who already had been discharged returned to the hospital with family members to meet with the president.”
That shows the divide in the nation as much as anything. When did people not want to meet the President and First Lady?
Meanwhile, remember when President Trump was the cause of all the problems in Puerto Rico? This in todays WSJ:
“Puerto Rico court has another new governor. Puerto Rico swore in Wanda Vázquez as its third governor in less than a week after its Supreme Court ruled unanimously that Pedro Pierluisi’s swearing-in last week was unconstitutional”.
Is is Trump’s fault too or does the Island have a problem?
Impeach, Impeach Impeach. From the Washington Times this AM:
“House Democrats told a federal court Wednesday their investigations of President Trump are moving ‘toward possible impeachment proceedings,’ marking one of the boldest pro-impeachment statements for party leaders to date”.
Nadler is determined to carry this on.
As he is continuing his investigation and demand to get Supreme Court Justice Kavanagh’s papers from the President Bush archives. He wants access to the private counsel Kavanagh gave Bush. He wants them provide “possible impeachment” information for the Justice.
There was a time efforts like this would have been called harassment, but today as long as its against the right, then its okay.
To illustrate how far left California has gone look at this story from the L.A. Times:
“Orange County, longtime GOP stronghold, now has more registered Democrats than Republicans. The county that nurtured Ronald Reagan’s conservatism and is the resting place of Richard Nixon is now home to 547,458 registered Democrats, compared with 547,369 Republicans, according to statistics released early Wednesday morning by the county Registrar of Voters. And the number of voters not aligned with a political party has surged in recent years, and now tops 440,770, or 27.4% of the county’s voters.”
Finally today, this column has long said it does not understand why Democrats don’t go on Fox. It can only help them. After watching the Town Halls earlier this year and Mayor DeBlasio last night on Sean Hannity, I am more convinced of that. It provides them a chance to argue their side and fight back. Do you think DeBlasio hurt himself last night? I don’t. I thought he made progress and Hannity did not go as hard as he could have.
An example. DeBlasio talked about a 70% tax rate. Why didn’t Hannity say “then Mr Mayor you add the state of NY tax (9%) and your City tax (4%) on top of that and we’re up to 83%. Then we have to add the Obamacare medicare tax 2.50%. So you’re saying over 85% tax is fair”?
Then add, “Mr Mayor you mentioned we had those rates before and the country survived. Well we also had deductions then that people used to reduce that rate. Are you going to add the old deductions back? And Mr Mayor, when Ronald Reagan became President he said those rates were stopping people from investing. He argued why invest and build when the government is taking the proceeds from your success. He then lowered the rates and our economy boomed. How do you explain that”?
I think Hannity let DeBlasio off on every issue. Why didn’t he ask why the police turned their back on him? Or, why they were protesting his candidacy outside the debates? He let DeBlasio talk as if NYC was a safe environment under his leadership. If the police vote decided who was Mayor would DeBlasio have gotten any?
A disappointing interview and why every Democrat should be brave enough to go on Fox.
