When Sarah Sanders sat down with news host Chris Cuomo, his theme was “the relationship between the press and the Whitehouse sucks.”
He said that inviting Sanders on for an interview might go some ways toward “getting past this moment.” He asked Sanders what she thought President Trump had achieved in his first 500 days. After laying out why the booming economy was a signature moment for the president, Sanders said:
‘It’s the strongest economy we’ve had since WWII…we now have more jobs available than we have people who are looking for them. No one can argue the fact that the economy is in a better place under this president, under his leadership.”
After some to and fro around this issue, Cuomo stated that Chuck Schumer (who was coming on the show after Sanders) says:
“The president is a terrible deal maker…look at the economy right now, you have more jobs than you do have people, yet the president said in the immigration negotiation that he wanted to cut legal immigration in half.”
After having a laugh at Schumer’s naysaying over a great economy, Sander’s countered with:
“Nobody is against legal immigration…the president wants a system that works, we want to close loopholes and secure the border – there’s nothing wrong with that, those are good things,” she added.
Sanders went on to say that Chuck Schumer “should quit playing games and do his job.” The president is out there doing things and solving problems and at some point Democrats, Sanders said, “will have to decide whether they hate this president more than they love their country.”
That right there contains the inner kernel of the endless hostility that the deranged anti-Trumpers have been dishing out since Donald and Melania glided down the escalator after announcing his intention to run as a Republican nominee.
For anyone who thinks Sander’s words may be bordering on hyperbole, consider Bill Maher, who only last week said on his own show, Real Time, that he hopes the country sinks into a recession if it means it’s detrimental to President Trump:
“By the way, I’m hoping for it because one way you get rid of Trump is a crashing economy. So please, bring on the recession. Sorry if that hurts people but it’s either root for a recession or you lose your democracy….I feel like the bottom has to fall out at some point.”
Incredible. It’s one thing to indulge in a spot of schadenfreude, where you take a moment’s delight in a person you hate’s misfortune, but to want your whole country to crash – and the implications of suffering that would bring to millions, is another whole level of malevolence on display. The loony left’s flaunting their true colours doesn’t get much more vivid than this and I’m glad they are finally finding a path to honesty.
Then there’s Robert De Niro making his ‘f#ck Trump’ speech the other day, while flexing what’s left of his biceps in front of an adoring entertainment industry audience applause. Despite his tough talk and the fact that he no longer resembles anything close to Vito Corleone but instead can only channel Dirty Grandpa, he then went toddling off to Toronto and gave an apology about his president:
“I just want to make a note of apology for the idiotic behaviour of my president, it’s a disgrace, and I apologise to Justin Trudeau, too, and the other people at the G-7.”
I think it’s now official that De Niro may be courting early dementia. I just can’t wait to hear his ravings about the historical document that has just been signed by Chairman Kim and President Trump today. With muscles such as his, I look forward to a possible showdown with Dennis Rodman.
