Last night, President Donald Trump spoke to the nation about his new strategy in Afghanistan. The reviews were somewhat mixed. Some felt he was "wagging the dog" due to a horrendous past week as President, trying to divert attention to the world stage and away from the issue of race, bigotry and Charlottesville. Others felt he finally stepped up to the position. Still, others, particularly Breitbart followers felt he betrayed his campaign promise and is only getting American involved in greater combat and investment of American blood and treasure.
More and more, the discussion has turned to the stability of President Donald Trump.
The months of July and August have been horrendous so far for those supporting the Trump White House.. Top Trump staff such a Reince Priebus and now Steve Bannon have been canned. Sean Spicer was replaced by Mooch who certainly had no smooth sailing either. Then, the emotional controversies related to the KKK and the Nazis blew up in Trump's face, leaving observers wondering if there is any sanity remaining.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, the Barbarian, is back in the news. Following Steve Bannon’s walk out the White House front door a Breitbart News’ senior editor-at-large wrote that President Donald Trump risked becoming “Schwarzenegger 2.0.” It was meant to be an insult, but it shouldn’t be because “Schwarzenegger 1.0.” wasn’t such a bad thing, though it started out very oddly, indeed, as part of recall effort of Governor Gray Davis who just, months before, had won a 2nd term.
Steve Bannon is over at the White House and the future promises to be bloody. According to Axios, it appears the decision was made earlier, Bannon was informed and the resignation would go into effect today.
The question now is, who will be doing the shooting, who will be the target and if President Trump will be in the crosshairs or, with his being forced out, if his presidency will be collateral damage.
A funny thing happened on the way to the Trump impeachment, the Russia story has vanished. Despite months of hyperventilating about the President being involved in nefarious “Russian collusion,” no evidence was actually produced. Despite a biased media, a biased special counsel and a legal team selected from the donor roll of the Democratic Party, Donald Trump is still President and still claiming that the whole campaign is a “witch hunt.”
Both President Donald Trump and New Orleans Mitch Landrieu lead their respective armies in the Battles of the Civil War monuments.
Every day Donald Trump is President of the United States, the Republican Party lives another lie. Ronald Reagan would never belong to the party of Trump. Neither would Eisenhower, nor any other Republican President from the greatest to the most mediocre. Trump’s brand of Republicanism isn’t just unprecedented; it’s aberrant and dangerous.
I get it. I really do.
I understand how Donald Trump has become the symbol of hope to millions of good decent, hard working Americans, who love their children, who pay taxes, who revere God and who are tired with the way that the country has gone astray.
In a Facebook and Twitter Live interview yesterday, I asked conservative columnist Quin Hillyer about the complaint I am hearing and reading from mainly pro-Donald Trump supporters—that Trump’s critics and members of the mainstream media would never accept anything Trump said or has done and would criticize him no matter what.
Can President Donald Trump’s critics including the mainstream media ever be satisfied?
We’ve heard this question. We’ve read it. We’ve watched it being asked or ones similar to it made on television, social media and in public.
President Donald Trump on Monday finally condemned a white supremacist rally that turned violent on Saturday.
