... TDS bias ...

Reader comment on item: A Reluctant but Unhesitating Vote for Donald Trump

Submitted by James Nicol (United States), Jun 6, 2020 at 15:28

... Amazing the TDS cult still cling to the myths and exaggerations about Trump:
- character issue (he is not perfect, who is, the author or his critics, but he keeps his promises and gets it done, supports and fights for economic success of ALL Americans, believes in & upholds the Constitution)
- unethical business practices, Trump University (he did not personally manage TU)
- egotism, "I'm really rich" (is it envy or jealousy of a proud, successful American business man)
- litigiousness, 3,500 lawsuits (how many lawsuits do other comparably sized companies have?)
- bigotry against Judge Curiel (someone of Mexican immigrant parents should have recused himself on a Border wall case)
- vulgarity (out of context and irrelevant locker room talk, how many men could have worse statements revealed?)
- unbridled impulsiveness (he's prepared and able to make decisive quick decisions unlike his empty chair predecessor who was always unaware until he read it in the newspaper)
- neo-fascist tendencies, Trumpolini (totally unfounded and slanderous, a business is not a democracy)
going off in his own populist direction (not controlled by any political party or outside Billionaire which is why we, the people, elected him)
- disloyalty (every POTUS deserves and demands loyalty from their staff and appointees, they serve at his pleasure, if they can't support his decisions or policies they should resign)
- bombast (he is not a wishy-washy, mealy-mouth, politician who has perfected talking ad-nauseam without saying anything, says it like it is and how the common person says it, uses hyperbole to confuse and trick his opponents and critics)
- protectionism (Make America Great Again and America First)
- indifference to public debt (Democrat Congress controls the government purse)
- hostility toward allies ("allies" have taken advantage of our generosity and should pay their fair share which lowers our public debt)
- soft spot for Turkish President Erdogam (realist and pragmatist who knows the importance of Turkey as a buffer to Russian & Iranian Mid-East expansion and ISIS resurgence, when was last time you heard about the Syrian terrorist revolution?)
- dangerous meetings with Kim Jong-un (realist and pragmatist who knows the significance of knowing your enemy and letting them know you carry a Big Stick and are not afraid to use it, he defused a dangerous nuclear confrontation without senile Jimmy Carter or Denise Rodman)
- unrestrained behavior (i.e. not "Presidential" behavior, BS, who wrote the book on Presidential behavior etiquette?, he is not a slick politician and not beholding to anyone, uses hyperbole to confuse and trick his opponents and critics)
- Tweets (tweets are his only way to directly talk with the American people since 90% of the media have TDS and vehemently oppose anything he does, they actively support a coup to remove him, Twitter is now censoring his messages. The unprogressive Internet communication entities are violating FCC restrictions and actively colluding to influence the 2020 election)

I trust he has realized that Ted Cruz is nothing but a big bag of hot political air, talks a big talk but does nothing.

IF he truly has "woke" and seen the potential threat that the Democratic Socialist Party means to the Country, then he should be shouting to everyone, unequivocally, his support for POTUS Trump's re-election without the preamble of his reservations.

Let us hope his fellow Never Trumpers also "see the light" and don't spitefully oppose Trump like disgraceful Mitt Romney.
