Twump hurts CNN's feewings



A half-hour before the release of the GDP numbers that showed our economy is well ahead of Obama's miserable 1.5% economic growth, CNN posted a column, "Trump makes people feel lousy. That could spell his political doom."

Frida Ghitis wrote, "Democrats are wrong to fear that a strong economy could doom their prospects. That's because it turns out that voters actually care about other things besides money.

"Sure, money matters a lot. But a growing body of research suggests that other things may count more. In particular, it appears that we care greatly about our well-being, which includes income and retirement accounts but also a wide variety of other factors."

Money isn't everything, eh?

Before the election, CNN ominously warned us, "If Donald Trump wins the election, U.S. stocks (and likely many other markets overseas) will almost certainly tank.

"How big of a drop? Forecasting firm Macroeconomic Advisors predicts an 8% fall in the U.S. A new paper out Friday from the Brookings Institute projects a 10% to 15% nosedive. You get the idea."

Now that President Donald John Trump is delivering the best economy in 50 years, CNN is saying, meh, money isn't everything.

Ghitis wrote, "One of the features of the Trump era is exhaustion with the acrimony that has engulfed America. How many times have we heard people plead that they need a break -- from the shocking news, from the unceasing attacks, from the bitterness that has ended friendships, sparked social media ruthlessness and toxicity, and generally produced a permanent state of medium-grade national anxiety. That is true among Democrats, but many independents and Republicans share the distress."

All of that acrimony, bitterness and division comes from Ghitis and CNN. They are the ones reporting only bad and often manufactured news.

The attacks come from the left. Who shot a congressman? Who ambushed a senator? Who beats people up for wearing a MAGA hat?

The only people who feel lousy are the people who did not vote for him. They lost.

Supporters of President Donald John Trump are happy. We won.

But the With Her crowd is still miserable because for the first time in their lives they were told no. She will not be the first woman president.

Meanwhile, the best economy since we first put a man on the Moon chugs along.

CNBC reported, "Growth decelerated in the second quarter, but not by as much as Wall Street thought, as tariffs and a global slowdown weighed on the U.S. economy, the Commerce Department reported Friday.

"GDP increased 2.1%, down from 3.1% from the first quarter, the weakest increase since the first quarter of 2017 as President Donald Trump took office. Dow Jones estimates were for 2% growth.

"However, the underlying numbers in the report seemed to take steam out of the recession fears that have been much of the talk among economists and policymakers at the Federal Reserve."

All that success makes Ghitis and her whiny friends feel bad because it shows the wisdom of electing Donald Trump president.

Which is their latest justification for opposing President Trump. They feel bad therefore he cannot be re-elected because for some reason it is America's job to make liberals feel good about themselves.

This makes no sense because the disloyal opposition is based on emotions not ideas.

2016 was a referendum on Donald Trump. He passed, 30 states to 20.

Next year's election will be another referendum on Donald Trump. He does not need Hillary voters. Democrats, though, need a few of his.

The good news for him is the opposition feels terrible.

The bad news for Democrats is all their lying, spying, and denying, and all their investigations have not converted one Trump supporter. Not one.

We elected him. It looks like we will elect him again.

    1. You need to up the ratio of Caucasian to African hairs in your toupees, Maxine.

      That should help alleviate the problem.

      Always take full advantage of the fact that you live in a white-majority country.

    3. Thanks Maxipad!!

      I know we are just having a little bit of fun here in our exchange, but, as an aside, let's have a look at the history of the usage of the word:


      https://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=racism&year_start=1800&year_end=2008&corpus=15&smoothing=3&share=&direct_url=t1%3B%2Cracism%3B%2Cc0

      Hmm...seems rather, uh, new.

      Oh, looky here! The term "nation of immigrants" suddenly appeared out of nowhere around the same time!

      https://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=nation+of+immigrants&year_start=1800&year_end=2008&corpus=15&smoothing=3&share=&direct_url=t1%3B%2Cnation%20of%20immigrants%3B%2Cc0

      Hmm..let's have a look at the term "Judeo Christian"

      https://books.google.com/ngrams/graph?content=Judeo-Christian&year_start=1800&year_end=2008&corpus=15&smoothing=3&share=&direct_url=t1%3B%2CJudeo%20-%20Christian%3B%2Cc0


      I am detecting a pattern here, but political incorrectness is not called "the crime of noticing patterns" for no reason.

    4. Thank you, Argus Bacchus, for those very interesting and informative graphs!

      It has occurred to me that I never heard the phrase "Judeo-Christian" while growing up, nor "nation of immigrants."

      I do know that none of our Founding Fathers were Jewish, or Buddist, or Hindu, or Muslim; they were all Christians of one sort or another, and I very much doubt that any of them thought they were "immigrants" since they'd had to tame a savage land, where life had to be fought for. They fought, many died, to have what is now the USA; they didn't just "immigrate" and go on welfare!

      Many things are now clearer to me as a result of those graphs, and the timelines they indicate!

  3. If Democrats will only accept the results of elections if they win, what difference is there between that and Divine Right? Isn't that concept why the barons forced King John to sign the Magna Carta (which BTW he promptly disowned once he got away from them)? Why the Roundheads rebelled against King Charles and cut his head off? Why the French Revolutionaries abolished the monarchy and chopped poor Louis' head off?

  11. If the economy under Trump limped along like it did under obama I would still love him. He fights back. He takes a gun to a knife fight. He punches them in the nose. He takes them out behind the bleachers and thrashes them. He knocks them down and then kicks them. But, you get the idea.
    No other republican fights back like Trump and I love him for it.

  12. Once upon a time my wife (now ex-wife) accused me of something I didn't do. She accused me of stuff I didn't do lots of times, but this time I was able to prove my innocent quickly and conclusively.

    Did she immediately apologize? Hell no!

    She was angry at me for being innocent! "You're just gonna keep throwing this in my face, aren't you?" was her response.

    Democrats remind me of her.

    1. Biden is being kneecapped as we speak, and Headboard Harris is the newly anointed Queen-to-be. The Dem powers behind the curtains are arranging that.

      I'm preparing popcorn against the possibility that once Harris' unelectability is known, that either Moochelle "Big Mike" or Her Herness will step in to snatch defeat from the jaws of, well, defeat.

      Which will it be? Hillary won't stop trying to grab that brass ring until she's buried, and her hand will still be rising up from the grave, still grasping for what she'll never have!

      Umm, popcorn!
