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

Published

on

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.

In Georgia, Pence Makes Ugly Dig Directed at Trump

It’s safe to say these two won’t be on the 2024 ticket together.

Tonight, the race for the Georgia governor’s office will continue, as incumbent Republican Brian Kemp faces primary challenger and fellow Republican David Perdue, in a contest with implications far beyond the Peach State.

The race has been billed as a bit of a 2024 preview, if only vicariously, as former President Donald Trump has endorsed Perdue while former Vice President Mike Pence has endorsed Kemp.

As the primary election neared, Pence wasn’t shy about taking some not-so-subtle shots at the former Commander in Chief, either.

On the eve of Georgia’s primary election, former Vice President Mike Pence had a forward-looking message of support for renominating Republican Gov. Brian Kemp.

“When you say yes to Governor Brian Kemp tomorrow, you will send a deafening message all across America that the Republican Party is the party of the future,” said Pence, speaking to a crowd of a few hundred in an airport hangar north of Atlanta on Monday.

Pence’s appearance was an implicit rebuke of former running mate Donald Trump, who has endorsed Kemp’s primary opponent, David Perdue. Pence did not make a direct mention of the former President nor respond to the relentless attacks Trump has leveled against Kemp. But his appearance at the rally the day before the election spoke volumes.

And then:

“When Brian Kemp called me and asked me to come out here and be with all of you, I said yes in a heartbeat,” Pence said.

Pence has been a bit coy, (and rather vague), about his potential plans for a 2024 campaign, and Trump has been quite vocal about the possibility of running against his former veep.

USA Begins Planning to Send Troops to Kyiv

Interesting…

Published

For weeks now, the world has been forced to sit back and watch the atrocities occurring in Ukraine with little to no recourse.  This was due largely to Vladimir Putin’s continued threats of a nuclear strike against anyone who might decide to interfere directly, including the United States, NATO, or other western powers.

Furthermore, US President Joe Biden has been clear:  There is no desire to have American troops squaring off with Russians directly, at the risk of conjuring World War III.

Yet still it appears as though some US troops will be making the journey to Ukraine…at least in a very limited manner.

Plans to send U.S. forces back into Ukraine to guard the recently reopened American Embassy in Kyiv are “underway at a relatively low level,” Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Monday.

The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that officials are mulling plans to send special forces to Kyiv to guard the U.S. Embassy. The effort is a delicate one, as it requires balancing the safety of American diplomats while avoiding what Russia could see as an escalation.

“Some of the things that may have been out there in the media, those are planning efforts that are underway at a relatively low level,” Milley told reporters at the Pentagon, seeming to refer to the Journal’s report.

There was no definitive timeline for the move.

Such plans “have not yet made it to [Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin] or myself for that matter, for refinement of courses of action and what’s needed,” he noted.

Milley would go on to suggest that any such move would require the approval of the President himself.
