Shhh, don’t anybody tell David French, the Treasoncrats, or Bill “Kuck Kluck” Krystal. They’ll be crushed.
If you went to bed early Tuesday, you were surprised to wake up Wednesday and learn that World War III has been delayed. No doubt you were also shocked that Iran blinked, oil prices were tumbling and the stock market was soaring.
Once again, the Chicken Little chorus got everything all wrong. The sky isn’t falling and Donald Trump pulled off a huge victory. Oh, and he’s still president.
That last is the part that hurts ’em most of all.
Iran’s decision to pretend it was retaliating for the death of Qassem Soleimani by lobbing ineffective missiles is terrific news for America and freedom-loving people everywhere. So was Trump’s Wednesday offer of negotiations, which he wrapped in even tougher economic sanctions and warnings against any new attacks on Americans.
Over the last week, the president has put on a clinic in seeking peace while projecting strength. Just don’t expect to find the outcome described that way in the New York Times or on CNN.
Comically, the Times tried to turn America’s victory into defeat, with its top headline declaring that “Trump Backs Away From Further Military Conflict With Iran.” Imagine the headline if he had chosen the military option.
Still, if you’re keeping score at home, this marks approximately 1 million times Trump has escaped a doomsday certainty. Alas, his survival only seems remarkable because he has such fools for opponents. And I don’t refer just to the Iranians.
Heh. Okay, that bit’s pretty sweet for sure. But this one’s my favorite:
It’s true that if any Democrat or your average Republican were sitting in the Oval Office, Soleimani would still be strutting around the Mideast, spreading mayhem and death like an evil Johnny Appleseed. But that’s only because no other politicians on the stage have Trump’s America First convictions and the courage to act on them.
And the solid-brass balls not to give a flying fuck at a plate glass window whether his domestic enemies approve or not, too.
Update! Did somebody mention Trump not giving a flying etc just now?
During the rally tonight in Ohio President Trump blasted lying pencil-neck Adam Schiff.
Via 100% Fed Up:
President Trump: “Adam, you little pencil-neck… He has the smallest shirt collar you can get, and it is loose.”
I ask again: how could any Real American not love the guy? The only thing about this that bothers me is that I’m afraid he might’ve said a lot more that wasn’t transcribed, and I missed it.
Down-update! Sinking like a rock—in certain quarters.
U.S.—President Trump’s approval rating among terrorists hit an all-time low today according to a CNN poll. This comes just days after he killed several of them.
Of those surveyed, only six percent of terrorists–mostly white nationalists–said they approve of Trump’s performance. Of the 94 percent who disapproved, just half said they would like to see the president dead. The others claimed they would be perfectly happy with a pallet full of cash.
I bet so. Actually, though, I’m just fine with sending more pallets o’ cash to Ragheadistan—as long as they’re dropped from high altitude without a ‘chute, directly onto their empty heads.
And, if done perfectly?
We get to leave Iraq. Genius.
