They think this hurts Trump



The New York Times joined the liberal chorus in writing off President Donald John Trump because he is too macho for their tastes.

The occasion was reporter Jennifer Medina's sojourn to Phoenix to find out why there are some male Hispanic voters who dare vote for him.

She blamed machismo.

She wrote, "Yet what has alienated so many older, female and suburban voters is a key part of Mr. Trump’s appeal to these men, interviews with dozens of Mexican-American men supporting Mr. Trump shows: To them, the macho allure of Mr. Trump is undeniable. He is forceful, wealthy and, most important, unapologetic. In a world where at any moment someone might be attacked for saying the wrong thing, he says the wrong thing all the time and does not bother with self-flagellation."

A leader who cannot be cowed. Imagine that.

Medina seemed stunned to learn there is another side to the story.

She wrote, "They said they saw his defiance of widely accepted medical guidance in the face of his own illness not as a sign of poor leadership, but one of a man who does his own research to reach his own conclusion. They see his disdain for masks as an example of his toughness, his incessant interruptions during the debate with Mr. Biden as an effective use of his power."

Well, they are just ignorant men falling for macho. She wrote, "More Hispanic women than men attend and graduate from college."

But that is true of all races as college has become feminized. Most college students are women. 

Liberal journalists have been knocking Donald Trump for being macho for years now. Stephen Collinson of CNN wrote on August 27, 2015, that macho would kill Donald Trump's then nascent campaign.

Collinson wrote, "So far, The Donald's bullish image is the key to his appeal among voters who are sick of the evasions of conventional politicians and who lap up his barked vows to bulldoze political correctness and get something done.

"In the long run, the fate of Trump's stunning poll-topping presidential campaign could rest on whether a broader swath of Americans tire of the constant braggadocio and deem it unfitting in a future commander-in-chief."

Well, we know how that was answered in the primaries and on November 8, 2016.

Cartoonist David Horsey wrote on March 30, 2016, "Donald Trump is a macho fantasy of a president."

Horsey wrote, "Thanks to Trump, the 2016 campaign for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination has descended to a primal level. Unlike Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, who have contained their disagreements to quibbles over policy, Trump and Cruz are like two bull elk locking horns in a battle for domination of the herd. While polls indicate a majority of Americans are appalled by the spectacle, Trump supporters clearly love it. They are drawn to Trump less for his program — thin as it is — than for his imposing persona. They have bought into the idea that, as president, he would face down the Chinese, the Mexicans, corporate leaders, Islamic terrorists and Vladimir Putin and bully them into doing his will.

"This vision of leadership is better suited to a gangster movie than to 21st century geopolitics, but it indicates how some people have a strong inclination toward viewing international relations as an elemental clash of warlords. For people who picture the world in such simple terms, the complex and nuanced diplomacy of German Chancellor Angela Merkel or U.S. Secretary of State John F. Kerry feels weak, unheroic and forever unresolved, while the brash aggressions of Putin seem bold, muscular and even admirable."

Nuanced Kerry gave Iran $170 billion and got nothing in return for the United States, although I suspect the kickbacks were plentiful.

Meanwhile, Trump has been more aggressive against Putin (who backed Hillary, by the way) and Red China (which backs Biden, by the way) than testosterone-challenged Obama.

Oh, and Merkel has had to increase her paltry military spending as President Trump put Mucho Macho pressure on NATO allies to keep their word on military spending.

Then there is the song "Macho Man," which the president now plays at rallies. Anderson Cooper, Don Lemon, and other gay people in the media act as if Donald Trump doesn't know what the song "means."

He knew what it was 50 years ago and he knows what it is now. Many Americans accepted gays and their significant others in the 1970s. We also accept that some people believe all sex outside of marriage — including adultery — is a sin and that marriage is between a man, a woman, and God.

But the Macho Man song now has another meaning, and that it is all right to be a strong man — an alpha male — and (gasp) be straight!

Alpha males don't really have to prove their manhood, which is why Donald Trump is the first president in 40 years not to start a war. I am not saying all the previous one were beta males — certainly Ronald Reagan was a strong male — I only mean to point out that far from being a madman throwing nukes at North Korea, Iran, and San Francisco, President Trump has worked to broker peace treaties in the Balkans, the Middle East, and the Korean Peninsula.

If that's machismo, then we need more, not less.

  1. And he's doing exactly what I hired him to do. Kerry, Obama, Jeb!... all are weak girly-men. They can be the leaders of the new West Coast Lefties. And they can take Mitt along.

    1. So, our choice is to either vote for the boorish, rude, insulting, bellicose "Macho Man," or the 47-years in the Senate loser "Dementia Man." A vote for Biden is a vote for ???. Lookit, it is obvious that the rapid deterioration of Biden will have him replaced by Harris, maybe even before the Inauguration. The Presidency is way over Kamala's intelligence and abilities. Someone with deep pockets will be pulling the puppet's strings and be the secret President. Soros? Obama? Jack? Google?

    That is exactly what it is Horseyshizzle. Weak. Unheroic. And forever unresolved. See the endless wars. See the Palestinian-Israeli issue. Etc.

    What is NOT complex and nuanced, is the fact that Kerry, like his boss at the time, Obumbles, is a sissy beta male, the exact kind of male the crazy leftist feminists, want every male in the US to become. Forget it crazy bitches, as Trump put an end to that lunacy for a while. And, since you crazy bitches don't like it, well, to quote my favorite "Celebrity Jeopardy" from SNL, Sean Connery, "Suck it! Suck it hard! Suck it good!"

    Polls, if of any value, gather people's public opinions. Trump is a secret indulgence that many won't share. But when alone, in the voting booth...

    That's what really scares them.

    Wasn't it the hipsters who just loved the Sopranos.

    Alpha males don't really have to prove their manhood

    When we heard about how many women on whom Willie had forced himself as his people were trying to portray him as an alpha male, that was my thought.

  5. For years I worked in the Aerial Firefighting Industry,Macho was the order of the day even the few women. You have to. "Who's the best pilot you ever saw?-You're lookin' at him." there is something to that. of course the left would like to change that.Trump is a commander. A leader,one who is able to make a decision. right or wrong but make a decision. Feather the Prop get rid of the load , but you are and your crew are alive.what appears to be overconfidence is actually a survival instinct. I was over at Bill Whittle's website and he was expressing how Trump is rude crude and still socially unacceptable-but there is no better choice. You are right Bill, there is no better choice suck it up and get on...

  6. We have tried "nuanced" diplomacy for the 50+ years after the Six Day War. All it got was a cold peace between Israel, Egypt and Jordan. We tried the Trump way in 2020 and we got peace between the UAE and Bahrain that is to create an economic partnership between those countries and Israel. The Trump way has brought agreement between Bosnia and Kosovo. The Trump way has isolated Iran. 'nuff said.

  7. I like that President Trump hits back and hits hard. He stands strong on his beliefs and let's his opponent throw the first jab. His counter punch comes from the hip and goes straight to the jaw.
    Unapologetic? Who in their right mind apologizes for being right? Who apologizes for knocking a dumbass on their ass?
    Contrast that with Barry ball less' world apology tour.

  9. It's more than just machismo. President Trump is results oriented. Machismo is just a means to an end result. If you like the results, as nearly all of us here do, then vote for him. If not, don't.

  10. "Yet what has alienated so many older, female and suburban voters is a key part of Mr. Trump’s appeal to these men, "

    Sorry dear, it hasn't alienated us older female (ok, not exactly suburban) voters. It is a "key part of Mr. Trump’s appeal" to us too!
    (In the 1970s through early 1990s, Mills & Boon /Harlequin featured a writer, Betty Neels, whose every novel featured a hero (usually a doctor) who was very tall, very broad, very very very rich--had expensive cars, numerous houses, loyal-for-generations servants--and underneath-a-cold-aloof-sometimes-not-so-diplomatic-exterior, was invariably very kind, very generous, creator of jobs, secret helper of underdogs, righter-of-wrongs, etc. In other words, Donald Trump.)

  11. Progressives are all the same, they tried to have male private parts molded in plastic put on the seats of public busses in Mexico City, to teach men a lesson. These same folks are demanding abortion clinics on every corner in Mexico just like ion the US. Entire villages of Native Mexicans are being slaughtered by drug cartels, at the same time marxists are trying to kill God and "Machismo" in Mexico. The moment Mexican women learn they can vote against the people who actively encourage this madness, they will swap (R), Just like the men did. Cubanos are proof.
