Now ultra-leftist sites like The Nation.com are worried about this new found respect of Trump, even if it is temporary, as demonstrated by an article entitled, “Too Many of Trump’s Liberal Critics Are Praising His Strike on Syria.”
It seems that The Nation feels compelled to remind fellow travelers that Trump is the enemy and you never say anything good about the enemy.
Just how stupid is that? It would be like saying that if I praise the President for a single initiative, I must then account for every other policy. It shows just how warped the left really is – or politically disconsolate they are – that due to their radical ideology, they are either incapable of or simply refuse to separate a single event from the whole.
The Nation writes that, “On CNN’s New Day Thursday, global analyst Fareed Zakaria declared, ‘I think Donald Trump became president of the United States’ last night,’” and that, “Zakaria apparently thinks firing missiles makes one presidential.”
However, The Nation did spare Fareed their full leftist wrath, by saying in the very next sentence that he previously called Trump a “bulls**t artist,” and that he became president “by bullsh**ting.” They evidently like Zakaria and don’t wish to throw him under the bus for a single lapse in judgment.
Throughout the balance of the article, The Nation calls out others, including The New York Times and at least one former Obama official, but they also included caveats, effectively letting the ones they favor off the hook for their single dalliance with the Dark side.
They reiterate, just in case we missed it, that, “any liberal who praises these missile strikes has to account for what comes next.”
They asked why Secretary of State Rex Tillerson did not appear to be part of the briefing on the attack. According to the photo released of the meeting, the following were present: “Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross; Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin; Goldman Sachs alum Dina Powell, deputy national-security adviser; along with Jared Kushner; Steve Bannon; and Bannon’s sidekick Steven Miller. Why are the Commerce and Treasury secretaries there?” Good point. I do not know, but it does seem a bit odd for those two to be present at a security briefing.
The Nation even said they were disappointed “to see Hillary Clinton say Wednesday afternoon that she thought air strikes on Syrian airfields were an appropriate response to the chemical-weapon attack.” However, they immediately followed up with an explanation that, “if she did fire missiles at Syrian airfields, she would have done so with a clearer notion of what comes next. Trump appears to be clueless.”
And how do they know Trump is clueless? Well of course, as I’ve mentioned before – the left has a magical ability to read the minds and hearts of those on the right. It’s an amazing talent.
Of course they said the same of George W. Bush and especially Ronald Reagan, with his Cowboy Diplomacy.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
