Some Headlines

Conrad Black on Trump’s presidency thus far: “It is too early to predict whether he will be a successful president or not. But no one relying on the Canadian media would be aware that he has more than doubled the economic growth rate, reduced illegal immigration by about 80 per cent, withdrawn from the insane Paris Climate accord, helped add trillions to U.S. stock market values, created nearly two million new jobs, led the rout of ISIL, and gained full Chinese adherence to the unacceptability of North Korean nuclear military capability. He will probably pass the greatest tax cuts and reforms since Reagan, if not Lyndon Johnson, by Christmas, and may throw out the most unpopular feature of Obamacare, the coercive mandate, with it.”

The president doesn’t create jobs, but he does make it easier or harder for private industry to create jobs. I think Trump has done that. I also like his judicial picks, the fact that he does not send pallets of cash to terrorists or trade terrorists for known deserters and hold Rose Garden welcomes for known deserters. And he totally rocks at not being Hilary.

Eight women accuse Charlie Rose of groping them, parading naked in front of them, and other abuses. His nonapology says he apologizes for everything but he thought it was all mutual feelings. Some of those women were job applicants in their 20s. One of them was fired after she complained. Some of them complained to his executive producer. She shrugged and said that was just Charlie being Charlie. Boys will be boys, you know? She says she’s sorry about that now. Of course she is. She and Charlie got caught.

White House Correspondent Glenn Thrush is also being accused by a number of women. He also apologizes for everything but doesn’t remember anything the same way they do, but he’s getting help. He must have actually ticked off somebody on the left personally since it’s actually getting covered (the Vox author admits he made her angry). Thrush, btw, is the Politico reporter caught by wikileaks admitting he was a hack and sending his stories in to Clinton and Podesta for vetting. After he was exposed, the NTY hired him.

Reminder: This is how the left defended Clinton for having an affair with an intern young enough to be his daughter, a textbook abuse of power. Look at the excuses and defenses (they are disgusting). The media refused to honestly report the allegations of rape or the fact that he had to settle in the case that made it to court, where he assaulted a female employee, leaving her with bruises, and his use of troopers to procure women. It still does.
INcidentally, four more women have come forward with accusations against Bill Clinton.

He has a long, long history of sexual assault accusations- more than even I realized:
“Tomorrow, maybe Eileen Wellstone — who reportedly told police that Bill raped her in 1969 while he was at Oxford as a Rhodes scholar — finally speaks to the media. Her case reportedly reached the State Department. Tomorrow, maybe, Ronan Farrow calls up Robert Reich, or Strobe Talbott, or Clinton’s other notable Oxford classmates, and asks them what happened. Asks them why they never spoke up; why Bill left Oxford without his degree.”
The left has cherished him, enabled him, protected him (and, again, the literal lady killer Teddy Kennedy got a free pass for decades= the DNC played a 7 minute long tribute video of him as a woman’s rights champion!). You don’t get to pretend to be outraged now. This IS how you got Trump, and why you deserve him.

It’s not like the left has actually discovered it has principles about this. They never really cared about women- feminism is a tool to bludgeon others with, not something applied to one’s own. AFter all, they are still defending Al Franken, and misrepresenting the allegations against him (nearly everybody on the left leaves out the part where he forcibly stuffed his slimy tongue into a woman’s mouth after she had already told him she didn’t even want a kiss in the skit at all and wasn’t going to kiss him).
This is who he is. This is his sense of entitlement. It’s about power. And self-proclaimed feminists have allowed and protected Franken’s abuse of it. He has not admitted what he did, nor has he actually apologized for what he did.

    I don’t like Trump. I didn’t vote for him (nor Hilary, for that matter). I think he is also something of a sexual predator, or at least a creep. But when the Left, for years, has covered up and defended those who have done much, much worse than Trump, I guess Conservatives threw up their hands and said, ‘If sex doesn’t matter that much, at least we’ll take a President who will do things that help the economy, and stay out of the idiocy that is identity politics.’

      I think you’re right. The left weaponized sexual assault accusations and consequently, turned them into duds when used too often against one side and one side only. I thought character mattered when Clinton was president. They said it didn’t. This is the result.

    I think you give Trump a pass on his behavior because you like what he’s doing in office. And spite.

      The spite is all point of view, isn’t it? I would say it’s more that what’s ok for the gander is fine for the goose. This is the natural, predictable result of democrat party/media hypocrisy for decades. You don’t get to cry about it now and make any kind of accusation and be considered credible instead of two faced hypocrite who has no standards except the double kind.
      You supported a rapist and a rapist enabler who called her husband’s victims bimbo eruptions and threatened them and insisted none of it was true when she knew it was all true, and I’m supposed to be outraged that once, in private years ago Trump said that women let famous people grab their privates? He was a democrat at the time, and the media kept that tape secret all these years. There’s no respectable reason for it to have been released when it was. It certainly wasn’t sincere concern for women.

      I didn’t vote for Trump. I don’t approve of his private life. But I honestly do not see why his behavior is anywhere near as bad as Clinton’s, or Franken’s, or Conyers, or a long list of Democrat politicians who have been given a pass and still are– and since their behavior did not matter, I don’t see why I should act like Trump’s does. Kennedy freaking KILLED a woman, and the DNC was celebrating his life in a triumphant video in 2012! I think Trump is an oaf and a clown and I can’t bear to listen to him talk. But I have been told by you and your ilk that character is irrelevant to the office of President (or to any politician). So why should I care anymore?

      Support? Your support went to votes and cash donations. I’ve never voted for Trump. I have not donated to a political candidate since my 20s. I don’t *defend* Trump (or Moore), I’m just not jumping on the democrat led mob to accuse him, either. I’ll believe it matters when people stop defending Clinton and people like Conyers and Franken are kicked out. If that’s spite to you, well, like all the other double standards, I really do not care. Why should your opinion matter to me when you think a woman who enabled her husband’s attacks on women and further victimized her husband’s rape victims is a great American who should have been the next president?
