So Donald Trump became the 45th President on Friday. I wanted to post before this, but I actually spent most of Friday watching coverage of the event/festivities, and yesterday reading all of the ridiculous things the mainstream media and Hollywood celebrities (why do we care about these people?) had to say about the new leader of the Free World.
And boy, a lot of ridiculous things were said.
The man is literally being compared to Hitler — by the mainstream media! It’d be one thing if it were some weird little blog or YouTube channel, but a major network? Apparently his speech reminded at least one mainstream media moron of 1930’s Germany.
And we’ll get to the Women’s marches in a later post, but who was the apparently famous woman who said something along the lines of a mustache being traded for a toupee? First of all, she’s clearly not that famous, because I have no idea who she is; second of all, Trump’s hair is clearly his own. As has been pointed out (by him, I believe), as a billionaire, he could afford a better toupee if he needed one. Third, the Hitler comparison is ludicrous to say the least. For one, Hitler hated Jews. You know how I know Trump doesn’t hate the Jews?
Trumps’ daughter’s family is so Jewish that she had to get a pass to travel on the Sabbath for the Inauguration. Say what you will about Trump, but his daughter clearly respects Yahweh, which can only bode well for the good ol’ USA, right?
On the subject of Trump’s family, anyone who has said, is saying, or will say nasty things about his young son deserves to be crapped on by a Bald Eagle. He’s a child, and he looked to be a perfectly normal one when he was playing peek-a-boo with his sister’s son. Our President has a lovely family. Leave the family, especially the kids, alone.
Where was I? Oh, right, clearly Trump isn’t an anti-Semite. So why the Hitler comparisons? His speech, apparently.
I’ve watched it several times. I’ve read it several times. I still don’t get why everyone is so concerned. I get why the mainstream media is concerned about Trump, because he’s told them there’s a new sheriff in town and has called them out on their lies/bias. But why is the average person concerned?
To be honest, I don’t know. My liberal friends complained that God was mentioned too much (read as: at all), but that’s about all they could complain about.
If I recall correctly, he talked about taking power away from the political class (the elites) and returning it to the people. That’s a good thing! For the most part, our politicians aren’t looking out for us; they only care about themselves. If you believe otherwise, you’re naive. I’m not saying we don’t need government; we do to an extent, obviously. But I think it is foolish to believe that those who run the government always have our best interests at heart.
AMERICA FIRST! isn’t a bad thing, either. There’s nothing wrong with loving your country more than other countries. That’s natural. That’s normal. Look, Trump’s right — we have spent way too much money overseas. We can’t afford to police the world anymore. We can’t afford to feed the poor in other countries. We’re basically $20 trillion in debt, people. Our government is broke. Sure, we have fancy buildings and nice parks and highways that are generally okay, but we’re broke. We’re like that dude we all know (especially in the suburbs of Wilmington) that owns a McMansion, a sports car, and has kids in private school but can’t afford to make his credit card payments or save for retirement.
What else in his speech offended the crybabies? Oh, it was apparently “dark” and “divisive”.
Apparently this is divisive:
“And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams and they are infused with the breath of life by the same Almighty Creator.”
That was said by President Trump in his Inaugural speech. Now, I know the liberals have complained and will continue to complain that he mentioned God, but all in all I find it to be a pretty unifying sentiment. Am I wrong? Am I missing something?
