Three years ago today, experts beclowned themselves.

Today marks the third anniversary of Donald John Trump descending down his golden elevator and into the presidential race. A victorious warrior, he won the battle and then waged the war. He had the right message -- "Make America Great Again" -- and the right battle plan in taking the battle for votes directly to the people, using the vast wealth of celebrity he built over the decades.

The press got him absolutely wrong.

The press and the experts beclowned themselves.

And they have not stopped beclowning themselves.

President Trump has not driven them mad.

They already were.

President Trump just forced them to reveal their true identity.

The Daily News in New York is obsessed with talk about "mindless zombies" and clowns.

After a while, you realize it is just projection.

Then there are the snoots on the right.

They were counterfeit conservatives.


People who made a living in Washington by pretending to be patriotic, pro-life, and securing our borders.

Then Donald John Trump came along.

Instantly patriotism became racist, pro-life became misogynist, and borders became xenophobic. The conservative pundits on television joined the liberal fascists in denouncing not just Donald Trump but anyone who dared cast their lot with him. The Fox News All-Stars became boo birds in the bleachers.

Those emails and texts from FBI agents cited in the Inspector General's report said nothing about Trump supporters that the people at the National Review or in the White House Correspondents Association weren't saying. It's Washington, which was built on a swamp and has not changed.

President Trump merely forced these lizards to shed their skin. We now see them for who they are.

There also is a reason you like Tucker Carlson. He is not like them. He wrote in January 2016 -- before the primaries began -- "Donald Trump Is Shocking, Vulgar and Right. And, my dear fellow Republicans, he's all your fault."

Carlson's description of Washington conservatives was the dead on opener of eyes.

"Consider the conservative nonprofit establishment, which seems to employ most right-of-center adults in Washington. Over the past 40 years, how much donated money have all those think tanks and foundations consumed? Billions, certainly. (Someone better at math and less prone to melancholy should probably figure out the precise number.) Has America become more conservative over that same period? Come on. Most of that cash went to self-perpetuation: Salaries, bonuses, retirement funds, medical, dental, lunches, car services, leases on high-end office space, retreats in Mexico, more fundraising. Unless you were the direct beneficiary of any of that, you’d have to consider it wasted," Carlson wrote

"Pretty embarrassing. And yet they’re not embarrassed. Many of those same overpaid, underperforming tax-exempt sinecure-holders are now demanding that Trump be stopped. Why? Because, as his critics have noted in a rising chorus of hysteria, Trump represents 'an existential threat to conservatism.'"

After reading that (and including that passage in "Trump the Press"), I knew Carlson's show would be a hit on Fox News. He realized that President Trump was and still is an existential threat to the counterfeit conservative money machine.

I am convinced a power greater than us supports President Trump. He did not need the job. He has fame. He has fortune. He risked his life, his fortune, and his sacred honor to run for president.

Be of good cheer, America. President Trump is on the job. We will wind up with a smaller and better government when this is over -- a government that finally is on the side of America, and not a few corporate interests.

Send in the clowns.

Don't bother. They're here.

  1. The media was actually urging Trump to run. They thought they could use him to help Hillary win.

  2. He came, he saw, he tweeted.

  3. The con think tanks are sending out mailers desperately trying to raise money and support these days. Not working. Tired of being conned.

  4. "I am convinced a power greater than us supports President Trump."

    I've had that same weird feeling. And what's weird is that it seems completely totally obvious. People who seem to have absolutely nothing in common are totally aligned against him and the only common thread uniting them is evil: totalitarian Marxists, male-hating feminists, the pro-abortion lobby, Palestinian terrorist supporters, the trans lobby, Hollywood. This does not mean everyone opposing President Trump is evil. Most of his opponents merely have been deceived and duped by evil. But evil is completely aligned against him. So I know which side I want to be on.

    Melodramatic, I know. But we live in melodramatic times.

    1. Very well said, and I totally agree.

      Win or lose, I'm on the right side!

  5. As Otto noted, God watches over the USA.

    And it's a damned good thing, considering the morons we very often put in positions of trust.

  6. Carlson was spot on with his comment and it did open my eyes.

    Thomas Sowell’s being part of the Never-Trump
    NR issue was most disappointing. Loved his columns and many of his books. A communist turned conservative and was much admired by me.

    1. Likewise disappointed that Sowell didn't see the possibilities Trump offered.
      He retired a few weeks after Trump was elected, and in retrospect I wonder if he was anticipating a new role in an I Told You So position.

  7. The Mean Girls Dem media is good at insulting others -- and they hate hate hate that Trump, too, is good at insulting others.

    Now I'm wondering about the GOPe Never Trumpers who "don't like Trump's tweets", or his vulgar boasting or his style or, especially, his insults.

    I guess, without looking, that none of them public ally expressed any opposition to the media insulting a candidate as disrespectful. Either it's ok to insult others or it's not -- we're all supposed to have equal rights in America.

    The GOPe have just been accepting that Dems are more equal than the normals.

    The Dem media is disgusting.

  8. Don,I thought he came down the escalator ,not the elevator.What ever way he got here is all that matters.

  9. God bless Donald John Trump.

  10. You write the best commentary.
