In 2016 when they finally got around to asking Trump supporters why they supported Supported Trump, the number one answer was “Because he fights.”
Trump ain’t no nice guy. If Donald Trump was playing the protagonist in a Hollywood western, he wouldn’t be Gary Cooper’s laconic Will Kane. Trump would be Clint Eastwood’s character in The “Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.” Trump isn’t Marshal Dillon, he’s Rooster Cogburn.
Most major-party presidential candidates have been in politics for 10-20 years. They hire political consultants who teach them how to talk and dress. By the time they run for POTUS, they are usually quite polished. Trump’s not polished. Trump has rough edges on his rough edges. His critics say he doesn’t act presidential.
Most people would agree that Mitt Romney is a nice guy. Mitt Romney acted presidentially.
Candy Crowley ate Mitt Romney’s lunch.
That’s when I realized that Mitt Romney is a loser.
Four years ago we were warned that Donald Trump is rude, crude, and socially unacceptable. We voted for him anyway. The Left must be desperate because they keep recycling and reusing their lame, failed attacks.
(There is a reason they call him “Jake the Fake.”)
If Trump was a nice guy who always minded his manners, he would have been knocked out of the race back in June 2015 before he even reached the bottom of the escalator in Trump Tower.
Take last night’s debate. Chris Wallace tried mightily to keep some topics from being discussed and some questions by Trump from being answered by Biden. One of those topics is Hunter Biden.
Which makes me wonder: 99% of the news media agree that Hunter Biden is a taboo topic. They have less-than zero interest in why foreigners love to shower Hunter with money. How was this unity of thought and purpose achieved? Was it a cash purchase, or is it some religious cult thingie? Were any threats made?
It seems to me that those creative attorneys at the SDNY could come up with a RICO act violation if they put a little effort into it.
