In his editorial New Rule, Bill Maher calls out the cronies who get up every day and try to make Donald Trump’s ludicrous and dangerous pronouncements sound normal and sane.
Thank You Bill Maher! Maher hit this right on the head on Friday night.
Trump’s approval rating is down to 35% after only 70 day’s in office, but we still continue to see some support the way he act’s and act like the Russian investigation is not a big deal. This is the same people who said Hillary should be in prison for her emails. They chanted “lock her up” at all of Trump’s rally’s. Now we see these same people continue to spin and deflect when they are called out about their support for Trump. The first thing that will come out of their mouths will be well Obama did this and Hillary did that. It seems as if these supporters are trying to justify Trump’s actions.
It may be hard for some to admit they are wrong. It may seem easier to try and deflect. But in the eye’s of others you are making yourself look crazy. We understand that some wanted a change and the democrats did forget about the hard working class during this past election, but our already great country was moving forward. Under Bush we had the second worst economical depression in the history of this country. Then we elected Obama and wanted change. Obama delivered this. We have now had over 80 months of consecutive job growth. Some continue to say it is not good enough and it is the smallest gain ever, but what you all fail to notice is that every other countries job growth is lower than ours. We still continue to be the best.
So change was not needed. What we needed was to continue on the path that we were being lead down. Coming out of a recession takes time. All economists say it takes ten to twelve years to fully recover. That has all been ruined now.
The scary part is a lot of people get their news from Fox News. Fox News is not the News. They are not journalists. They in fact are just people who give their opinions. How can we move forward when half of the country is brainwashed? Especially when the man holding the most powerful position in the world is saying and tweeting things he has heard on Fox News. Why can the majority of us see this and the rest are so blinded?
