If a moderate Republican president had been elected in 2016, do you think he or she wouldn’t have been called “racist, sexist, homophobic, Nazi”? “Xenophobic, child-hater who wants to starve old people”? Do you think there wouldn’t have been a “resistance”?
Fact is, no matter how meek, no matter how moderate, leftists brutally savage Republicans. And they use hatred and fear-mongering to motivate their base. This is the way it has been for my entire lifetime. I am very, very tired of it.
So, now we must consider Trump. Is he a buffoon? Is he incoherent at times? Yes, and yes. But do I fault him for bucking up and playing smashmouth football with the leftists? No. I don’t.
