A man of the people.
Trump was in the motorcade. Look, he said, firemen ahead. And they’re saluting me? Why, I should be saluting them. Stop the car, I’m getting out. But security, sir? Screw that, I’m getting out and shaking some hands.pic.twitter.com/zWJgYoqC5t

And that’s just what he did.
Trump has demonstrated his love and respect for ordinary, working-stiff Americans plenty of other times over the years, and it isn’t hard to figure out why. Just for one thing, how much time do you figure the man might have spent slogging around in muddy construction sites, cheek-by-jowl with the roughneck types working for him on various projects? He’s a fabulously wealthy man, yes, but a most rare type of one: he never forgot who it was that helped make him wealthy in the first place, that his fortune wasn’t made all on his own, but as part of a team. He’s made his deep, abiding love for his country and the people who built it and keep it running more than clear.
Now, compare and contrast: can any of you seriously imagine HILLARY!™ eagerly jumping out of her up-armored, blacked-out limo, sidestepping her full-auto-equipped bodyguards, to go press some of that good ol’ Deplorable flesh? Or coming off as anything but smarmy, supercilious, and utterly false if she ever did?
Hell no, you can’t. It’s simply inconceivable; it contradicts absolutely everything we know about the wretched, sozzled old shrew’s character, personality, and instincts. Her overweening sense of entitlement, of her own presumed Elite status, would prevent her from ever harboring such a notion. Likewise Barky, likewise any of the other Klowns in the Democrat-Socialist Kar. Well, okay, Senile Uncle Gropey might, if he thought there was any likelihood of either A) glommable bribe money, or B) a few approachable, sniffable underage girls hanging around the job site. And even then, he’d botch the whole blasted thing somehow.
Cunning and devious as they are, for some reason the Democrat-Socialists obviously can’t begin to grasp how to pull something like this off successfully. In fact, it would never occur to them at all. It’s kinda curious when you think about it. But it would never occur to Trump NOT to do it, and as the vid demonstrates, there’s no stopping him when it does.
This, I remind you, even as the Shampeachment smear-job staggers on to its disgraceful conclusion. As Glenn wryly notes, Trump sure doesn’t seem much bothered by that dumpster fire, now does he? Betcher life that any of those firemen who weren’t Trump supporters before this are rock-solid for him now.
Watch the video—I have, about ten times today, with an irrepressible chuckle each and every time I showed it to somebody—and tell me how it’s possible not to just love the guy. For all his faults, he’s still the best damned President this country ever had, and we’re damned lucky to have him.
