In the Sunday editorial that sounds as though it was emailed from Tucson by the telecommuting leftie editorialist Linda Valdez, the carping begins and ends with, “Trump’s inauguration speech proves he still doesn’t get it. “
There was a time we would have provided a link to the sham “Editorial Board’s” dissemination of misinformation laced with extremist partisan myopia. We see no need for such generosity when the intent of the piece was to marginalize our newly elected Commander-in-Chief, Donald Trump. Facts take a back seat when points are attempting to be scored by the Hillary-endorsing newspaper, which referred to the departing Obama’s as “gracious” and scandal plagued, often scowling Hillary Clinton as “respectful.”
These words reveal the newspaper’s real agenda: “Trump’s inaugural speech was an opportunity to rise above a divisive campaign and low approval ratings by reaching out (cliché alert!) to America’s better angels. But he did not show an understanding that his audience has grown to include all Americans — those who voted for him and those who voted against him.”
In fact, Donald Trump reached past the angels, going directly to God, whose spirit he invoked throughout his speech. Democrats don’t like that. Who can forget when they booed the inclusion of God (video) at their 2012 national convention?
In a shameful display of petulance and signaling an unwillingness to work together for the American people, 67 Democrat members of Congress boycotted the inauguration of our nation’s 45th President. Republicans, none too thrilled with the 2008 and 2012 elections of Barack Obama, showed him and the office to which he was elected the respect due them. There were no boycotts.
Over the weekend, Peggy Noonan wrote “President Trump Declares Independence,” noting his refreshing message to America, “Remember those things I said in the campaign? I meant them. I meant it all ”
The new White House website provides proof.
Those of us who waited in the long lines to attend Donald Trump’s rallies, connected with him and voted for him — get it. Liberals are in for the same tough ride we had under the Constitution-shredding Obama, but will not handle it with grace. “Snowflakes” that they are, they’ll need more safe rooms, coloring books and hot cocoa.
