Looking at the news one day, remembered a line from an old forgotten song:
When Donald Trump declared on a popular Talk show that he was a “little” skeptical of Obama’s citizenship, entire world either rebuked him or laughed at him. No one asked why. This was a sin, everyone would have to pay for in the time to come.
President Obama, will long be remembered for the things he achieved in his lifetime. From restoring relations with Cuba to his Nuclear Deal with Iran to Affordable Care Act, his achievements are numerous and few could match his wit and style. Being human, he had his failings too, things the Left leaning Liberals just refuse to look at.
Whether it was worsening Race relations, infuriating Right leaning conservatives, or consolidation of wealth in the hands of few. He unintentionally opened the doors for the Jester to come and steal the crown from under our noses. while we kept laughing at his antics.
Has this sunk in yet? No? OK, let me help. Trump had following main pillars of his campaign:
- Media is Corrupt and Biased and Supports Left.
- Hillary is evil and corporate stooge.
- Whites have been denied for too long.
- America has lost its position as world leader.
- Trump is outsider and will fix whats broken
Whatever Trump did and said (good and bad), it always aligned to above 5 pillars. No matter what he said, he could because “he is an outsider” and “not a politician”. This was the excuse what won him election.
While Trump’s agenda appealed to both vote banks, here is how Hillary appealed to Trump’s Vote Bank:
Hillary: “just to be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables.’ Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic — you name it”
If Trump was able to carry out one of the biggest upsets, it was because he was smart. He defeated all Republican Presidential hopefuls fair and square.
While Hillary battled one scandal after another, Trump marched on. He had the data on his side. No matter how ugly he behaved or how deplorable he said, nothing seemed too bad for him. He bounced back every time.
In the end it was not a win for Trump, it was a loss for Democrats in general and Hillary in particular. Here is how Democrats accepted him:
Demonstrators opposed to the election of Donald Trump smashed windows and set garbage bins on fire in downtown Oakland, California early Wednesday, as protesters swarmed streets across the country in response to the election
Obama: Trump’s victory threatens America’s core
After Clinton Loss, #NotMyPresident, #StillWithHer Goes Viral
The point is, all this is playing to the Trump’s tunes. He thrives on negative media portrayal. The way to attack his popularity is not by shaming him, it is by encouraging him to do something; by asking him his questions on his plans.
The Reality is, he is our President and will continue to be for next 4 years or so. Its time, we moved to work with him on the issues which matter. From improving race relations, to religious intolerance, to Affordable care, to North Korea and ISIS, the challenges are many. We want to make sure while he works, he works for all of us, and not only for the ones who elected him.
You see, the Jester is a fool, an entertainer at best, he doesn’t need anyone to bring him down. Leave him alone and falls on his nose, ridicule him and he grows stronger.
