Was Trump's Speech At Mount Rushmore Dark And Divisive? (7-5-20) https://t.co/riqVbGKNZs

* Like all real women, my wife is a sucker for displays of power, so she loves this stuff and often gets me to watch with her. I like airplanes, so I enjoy it too. No other president has done this kind of thing better than Donald Trump.
* Can you think of another film that shows the leader descending from the heavens like a god, flying over the local landmarks in a plane? Leni could sue for copyright infringement if she were still alive.
* Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. Cut off the support network and isolate the target from sympathy. Go after people and not institutions; people hurt faster than institutions.
* I appreciate the use of Sweet Child O’ Mine. It is pitch-perfect because in his heart-of-hearts, Trump is a creature of the 80s.
* I’ve been been on the Trump train–talking him up with friends, neighbors–since i read his (Jeff Session’s) immigration policy pitch back in 2015. I’m still on board.
But the bottom line–cut away all the b.s.–is that the delivery problem isn’t just that Trump’s pushing against the Democrats, the state, the new post-1964 constitution. It’s also that Trump has lacked focus on the nationalist agenda that won him the nomination and squeezed out a narrow victory. Poor advisors–nepotism. Ego. Lack of discipline. Too easily rolled. Too confused.
We all knew Trump would be pushing against a corrupt, vile, anti-American, anti-republican, globalist establishment, and that progress would be a grind. But Trump’s lack of focus and discipline in the fight has hindered progress–and the case he can make for re-election. Denying this rather obvious fact is silly.
I’m with Trump because he’s the nationalist we’ve got–warts and all. But we deserve to see him fight hard and smarter.
