Of all of the despicable and deplorable actions of the “resistance” movement, perhaps their most repugnant maneuvers have been in targeting both Melania and Barron Trump for their father’s political career.
This isn’t the normal political dissidence that Americans are used to, no. This is something entirely different. This is scorched earth punditry, the like of which would have incensed the media savvy William T. Sherman if he were alive today…and that’s saying something.
Apparently, the Civil War commander who famously (or infamously, depending on your viewpoint) marched across the South was not a fan of the press. Here are the quotes attributed to Sherman:
- “I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their camp rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which, in truth, they are.”
- “If I had my choice, I would kill every reporter in the world, but I am sure we would be getting reports from hell before breakfast.
- “I think I understand what military fame is — to be killed on the field of battle and have your name misspelled in the newspapers.”
Now, however, in this golden age of vociferous vitriol, the media has grown even more obnoxious, (as if that were even possible), and have begun attacking not only the President of these United States, but his family as well. Just last week it was reported that the President’s son Barron was being harassed at school due to his father’s lack of popularity among the media.
And, no, the left is not above attacking Melania Trump either, with late night host Jimmy Kimmel cruelly mocking her accent during a recent diatribe.
To her credit, however, the First Lady has shown an inordinate amount of grace and class throughout the relentless attacks of the liberal left, and, at times, has been the most stately of the President’s inner circle. Now, on the heels of a recent platform reveal that revolved heavily around America’s children, FLOTUS is basking in the glow of a newfound popularity.
First Lady Melania Trump is experiencing a major surge in popularity, according to an new poll.
CNN reports, “In a poll conducted by SSRS last week, 57 percent say they have a favorable impression of Trump, up from 47 percent in January.”
CNN also notes that data presents the “biggest number Melania Trump has experienced in any CNN polling, and higher than any favorability rating earned by President Donald Trump in CNN polling history going back to 1999.”
Honestly, what’s not to love?
According to polls from earlier this year, Melania Trump is also faring better than Hillary Clinton, surpassing the wicked witch of the East’s favorability rating already.
