There has been an inordinate amount of fear mongering occurring in the first year of the Trump presidency, all emanating from leftist media echo chambers. Today was no exception.
When the left was finally ready to accept the fact that Donald Trump had bested career criminal Hillary Clinton in 2016, it was time for their spin machine to go into overdrive. At first, the left continued to push their bizarre claim that Donald Trump, husband of Melania Trump, was somehow a supreme bigot that hated immigrants.
Then, after that theory was dead in the water, they turned to more sinister theories regarding a Russian plan to steal the election from Hillary Clinton, based on the faulty and thoroughly debunked conspiracy theory that Trump was a Kremlin spy.
After the “Kremlin double agent” theory burned up on reentry, the left then pivoted to an even more bizarre plot in which the working girls of Moscow were supplying the Russian government with salacious stories of Trump’s lewd and unsanitary brothel requests with which to blackmail the President. It turns out that those were just rehashed Wall Street Journal fallacies from a decade ago.
Now, after trying over and over again to “nail” the President with some sort of claim, the left is returning to their old standby cry of “he’s a tyrant”.
“Tuesday on MSNBC, when asked about President Donald Trump’s tweets about the FBI, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) said Trump was ‘systematically trying to shut down every possible branch of government but the presidency.’
“Speier said, ‘I am concerned that the president of the United States is systematically trying to shut down every possible branch of government but the presidency. So you got him attacking the judiciary, you have him attacking the CIA, you have him attacking the Department of Justice, the FBI. I mean this is the conduct of someone who could become a tyrant if we don’t step in and speak out against him.’”
Of course, there is little that could be considered farther from the truth.
Trump has been nothing short of a populist revelation in terms of American patriotism, going toe to toe with the Washington elite who have been stepping on the backs of the American working class for decades in order to please their special interest friends. Furthermore, it is the left who have turned to violence, anarchy, and censorship in their quest to delegitimize the Commander in Chief – not the American conservative majority.
