Macro Rubio Totally Nails What the Left Doesn’t Get About Trump–They’re Still Clueless

Published

Ever since he got into politics, Trump has been riding on the backs of those who hate him.

Remember back in 2016, when he bragged about how small his campaign budget was because the media gave him so much free press?

Or how, as the other Republican candidates slowly fell behind him, even those who had hated him in the beginning began to change their tune?

What about now–is there anyone at all among the Never Trump right who hasn’t defended him at least once?

Trump is more in tune than anyone else in America with how much his negative press helps him, and if you take a birds-eye view of his entire political career, it’s hard not to admit how brilliant the man is for constantly leveraging it in his favor.

The people who hate Trump the most are so blinded by their own passions they have absolutely no idea how much their unhinged rants and blatant, stunning hypocrisy pushes more and more people over to the right.

It’s both beautiful and crazy.

And few people know this better than his former presidential opponents such as Marco Rubio, who dropped an incredibly profound tweet about this fascinating phenomenon on Monday:

“Trump haters still haven’t realized how much they help him with their condescension of those who either voted for him or don’t share their hatred of him,” he wrote. “And how much they help him with their irrational hostility towards those who work for him.”

He is speaking, of course, of the over-the-top tone Democrats have been hitting in response to Trump’s immigration policies, which they literally just realized result in the separation of children from their parents when detained by ICE for crossing the border, despite the fact that the same thing was happening under Obama.

This kind of cognitive dissonance is all too apparent to those who are not stricken with Trump Derangement Syndrome, and it’s a huge turn-off to less passionate voters who can tell hypocrisy when they see it.

The left seems to have well overplayed their hand when it comes to the glaring hypocrisy of “tolerance” and “love”, and American voters are waking up. Over the last two years, paradigms have begun to shift, and it doesn’t look good for Democrats, who can’t let go of their bitterness at Trump’s election, nor can they hide their contempt for the people who voted for him.

If they’re not careful, the other shoe may be about to drop. November is right around the corner–if they don’t want to drive more voters into the red, they’d better wake up and stop acting like spoiled toddlers who were deprived of a treat they’d assumed would be handed to them.

Trump Weighs in on Cleveland Baseball Name Change…and It’s Not Pretty

The former President was NOT happy!

Published

Donald Trump, like a great many conservatives around the nation, isn’t all that thrilled with the way in which our national culture is changing.  Of course, this isn’t terribly surprising given that this is the nature of conserving, to allow things to remain the same or to work to bring the nation back to the way it was. So, almost predictably, Trump had plenty to say about the recent change announced by the Cleveland Indians baseball team. In a statement, Trump wrote that he is a “FORMER” baseball fan and said “a small group of people, with absolutely crazy ideas and policies, is forcing these changes to destroy our culture and heritage.” The name change came after years of protests from Native American groups and baseball fans. The former President had a far different opinion than many. Trump’s statement said he thought the name was an “honor.” However, the Lake Erie Native American Council released a statement supporting the team’s new name, WTOL reports. “We are pleased the Cleveland baseball team took a comprehensive approach to listen and learn and show it is possible to take steps toward change,” the statement read. The name change came just months after the Washington Redskins dropped their own mascot to temporarily become the “Washington Football Team”, just until a new moniker could be decided upon.

Tests Show QAnon Shaman is ‘Mentally Ill’, According to His Own Lawyer

But is this all just a part of a broader legal strategy?

From the moment that Jacob Chansley set foot on our television screens, we knew that we’d be talking about him for some time into the future. Chansley, known more commonly as the “QAnon Shaman”, was the iconic character who participated in the January 6th insurrection shirtless, with his face painted, and wearing a large fur headdress adorned with bison horns. Now, as Chansley faces charges in the storming of the Capitol, his lawyers are trying a rather tricky defense:  They’re claiming that the Shaman doesn’t possess full control over his faculties.  In an interview, defense lawyer Albert Watkins said that officials at the federal Bureau of Prisons, or BOP, have diagnosed his client Jacob Chansley with transient schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and anxiety. The BOP’s findings, which have not yet been made public, suggest Chansley’s mental condition deteriorated due to the stress of being held in solitary confinement at a jail in Alexandria, Virginia, Watkins said. “As he spent more time in solitary confinement … the decline in his acuity was noticeable, even to an untrained eye,” Watkins said in an interview on Thursday. But is this all just legal maneuvering? Watkins said authorities will need to determine how Chansley can get access to the treatment he needs to “actively participate in his own defense.” Pleading guilty to a charge negates the need for a trial, but defendants still have to be declared mentally competent to do so. Watkins said the BOP’s evaluation of his client did not declare Chansley to be mentally incompetent, and he does not expect Chansley to be ordered to undergo what is known as competency restoration treatment. Watkins turned heads early on in his role at attorney for the Shaman, after making derogatory remarks about his own client’s mental health, using phrases that are deemed unprintable…
