If you don’t have an objective mainstream media, or Reaganesque oratory skills, you work with what you have…or leave yourself open to unrelenting, merciless assault.
As with the other anti-Trump Republicans, Rich Lowry’s backhanded compliment to President Trump just doesn’t seem able to capture the essence of that difficulty.
“The Trump Presidency Isn’t Nearly As Bad As It Sounds” belies a benign verdict on President Trump, but it didn’t take longer than getting to the article’s subheading “Trump’s presidency is much better than his Twitter feed” to understand Rich Lowry doesn’t like the fact that the President uses Twitter to get his point across to Americans.
Every day, the Left-wing media hammers Republicans with implacable rhetoric on a wide-ranging category of issues, from immigration to travel bans to Russian collusion.
So, when Lowry condemns Trump’s terrorist-atrocity re-tweets, or conspiracy innuendo tweet against Joe Scarborough, it’s disingenuous at best, amazingly tone deaf at worst.
National security relies on border-security, and a relentless concentration of intelligence assets – reminding citizens of the violence terrorists are capable of is a public service.
And when it comes to dismissing conspiracy theories, it would behoove Mr. Lowry to keep in mind their ‘Russia-collusion’ meme…and how that’s stalled a GOP agenda.
Please, sir, we know you’re anti-Trump…but keep some perspective.
Finally, we can tell you with a great degree of certainty exactly what would effectively end the President’s use of Twitter…an objective media honestly reporting news.
We can also tell you with certainty that Hell will freeze over before that happens.
