I really don’t like politics. However as of late, when I realized we had a muslim brotherhood member in office, I vowed to start listening and learning more. Last night was Trump’s first State of the Union address, and I tuned in to try to understand more of what both sides are fighting about, both conservatives and liberals. I wanted to come in with an open mind and a willingness to hear commentaries from both sides.
I never got the chance. You see the members of the network I tuned in to gave such a pre speech cut down of what was to come, trying to washout any value in the speech before it was even given, that they lost my ear. I had to avoid listening to too much pre speech moaning and whining about the president . I felt like I was back in 3rd grade on the playground and the class bully was threatening to take their ball and go home unless they got to play the position they wanted, and cheat along the way just because they had the ball. Before we even started.
After the speech was over I was expecting some ” shoe in mouth” reaction by the liberals to save face because the speech turned out so well. However, my hopes were popped like a balloon as I listened to them complain about such moronic issues that once again I was amazed anyone actually paid them to be there and talk. Childish behavior.
1- It was too long . Whaaaaaa
2-The first lady came in by herself without the President. ( Duh, that’s just the order of the program), and despite what the NBC critics said in yet another desperate attempt to find a flaw with the president – it does not mean there is ” trouble in paradise” for the couple.
3- The president ” took advantage” of some sensitive stories like the guy with no legs, the families who lost a daughter to street violence and a few others. ( Hey guys, it’s better than pimping rapper Jay-z and Beyonce at the white house gigs like Obama did.) What are you thinking ” taking advantage of this”? Because he gave props and prayers to the families that have suffered?
You can’t fix stupid I guess.
4-The President clapped when everyone else did, so this must mean he thinks he is better than us all. ( Hey people, should he have brought a pocket game boy to play during the cheering? What leader does not join in celebrating success with his/ her people?)
5-His huge tax break is up in 2027. (Duh, so will his terms).
6-He was selling himself, Donald Trump.
(I am sorry to inform you that just because he happens to be the record-breaking president in taking action when he said he would and fulfilling promises he made does not mean he was ” selling himself” . He was cheering for our progress as a country.
I could keep going and going but I won’t. You get the idea. The bottom line is I never got to evaluate policy and learn how he is doing on the issues too much because the liberal media was so busy throwing stones that I could not get to it. My evaluation is that it was one of the most hopeful and encouraging fact filled speeches that I have heard in a long time and for sure better than anything that EVER came out of the muslim brotherhood representative we had in there for 8 years.
Donald Trump is not Jesus. None of us are. So he that hath no sin, cast the first stone. Everyone else,
Shut your pie hole.
I still love all my democrat and liberal friends. As a matter of fact I even pray for you all! However the 3rd grade name calling and behavior has got to stop if you truly love the USA. It isn’t about you. it is about all of us. The election is over and you should be too.
