So much can go wrong in a Donald Trump presidency, but Victor David Hanson notes that most of the predictions have been wrong.
One of the biggest and baddest smears comes from the left, convinced that Trump is a totalitarian thug. Hitler with crazier hair and a prettier wife. Yeah, about that:
So far all the political violence associated with the election of Trump, from Inauguration to the latest campus rioting, has been on the Left. No pro-Trump crowds don masks, break windows or shut down traffic.
The crudity in contemporary politics—from the constant sick jokes referring to First Family incest, smears against the First Lady, low attacks on the Trump children, boycotts of the Inauguration, talk and dreams of killing the president—is on the liberal/progressive side. The entertainment industry’s obscenity and coarseness have been picked up by mainstream Democratic officials, who now routinely resort to profanities like s–t and f–k to attack the president. Almost every ethical code—television journalists do not report on air private conservations with their guests during breaks, opposition congressional representatives do attend the Inauguration, Senators do not use obscenities—have been abandoned in efforts to delegitimize Trump.
They’ve lost what was left of their civility, courtesy and minds.
