On any given day in this great nation, one can turn on the television and find an angry democrat, railing against something that was said or done by President Donald Trump.
Some days, it’s almost nothing at all. Many still remember when Trump lovingly hugged an American flag after a speech and the mainstream media went out of their way to vilify the affectionate display.
A great deal of these grievances are just this petty, allowing the infotainment industry to anger their viewers enough to set the remote down, suffering through the inevitable onslaught of car insurance commercials, just so that they can live vicariously through Chris Cuomo or Don Lemon again after the break.
Today is no different, as the left feigns outrage at the idea that President Trump would consider taking first on a political opponent from a foreign nation. Sure, it’s an ugly tactic, and maybe one that the President shouldn’t be bragging about, but he’s also far from the first politician to admit such a thing.
Take some of Hillary Clinton’ staff, for instance.
…Brian Fallon, the press secretary for Hillary Clinton’s unsuccessful 2016 campaign, once said he would have been willing to travel to Europe to confirm dirt about then-candidate Trump.
“Opposition research happens on every campaign, and here you had probably the most shadowy guy ever running for president, and the FBI certainly has seen fit to look into it,” Fallon told The Washington Post in October 2017.
“I probably would have volunteered to go to Europe myself to try and verify if it would have helped get more of this out there before the election.”
Trump was targeted by Russian operatives, while Fallon was ready to pack his suitcase and go digging around the Old World. There’s quite a difference in the severity of the intent between those two realities.
As 2020 approaches, it may be important for the democratic candidates to check on their glass houses before opening their mouths on this subject.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
