I've told you before, I only go by Trump's own words. I don't pay any attention to commentators. Out of his own mouth and tweety-fingers, he's an idiot, a racist, a misogynist, a liar, an ignoramus, etc.
This is naïve at best. It is Trump's own words that get misinterpreted, taken out of context and so on. This happens to me ALL THE TIME here, I mean ALL the time, the times anyone gets what I mean add up to about, oh, half a dozen over all the years I've posted here, so there's nothing odd about it happening to Trump, especially when those reporting on him or reacting to him hold a leftist worldview that completely opposes his worldview.
If news sources, fake or otherwise have noticed the same thing, that might be because it's true.
Not with a leftist press, no.
And by the way, I actually agree with Trump on a couple of things, so don't accuse me of being an ideologue.
Well, but the rest of what you said is pretty standard leftist.
He believed what he said. Trump makes mistakes, he misstates things, he's not careful about his words as he should be, he's not cautious enough in the face of what he should know by now about his opposition, but most of us who voted for him think he's basically honest, we know he is not a racist and that those accusations are spun from illconsidered comments that have nothing to do with race, and we think he really cares about the things he supported in his campaign speeches, which we also care about. It's too bad he's got moral problems with women but if you compare him to Clinton or Kennedy I'm not sure he's worse than either of them and the main difference is that the press left them alone for the most part, but they're ravening wolves against Trump.
There are those who would argue with you about those things but I think I'll just cut to the chase:
It's too bad then that Trump was the only candidate among the Republicans who spoke for conservative middle America, all the others being mealy-mouthed or RINOs or liberals in Republican garb. And we still see him as sincerely on our side. The ONLY one we've ever heard "tell it like it is" from our point of view. Even the conservatives who are less than thrilled with him as a personality still feel that way about his platform.
The more you trash the man the more those on my side just regroup against you. The man is human, with a sincere love of America that we don't see on the Left, and a sincere desire to "make America great again" which is far from the Left's thinking, and his ideas about how to do that might not be feasible but his desire to bring them about makes him a good guy.
If there hadn't been such a steep slide from old fashioned liberal Democrats to frank Marxist-Communist anti-Americanism since the sixties, we might not have had to be content with a flawed man like Trump. But he IS the only one who sees these things as we do.
