It’s not clear how long liberals will be able to keep up their perpetual Trump outrage, but a clever entrepreneur should immediately establish sanatoriums within which Hollywood types, Democratic operatives and “activists” receive the care they need when they collapse from exhaustion.
It’ll be rehab for bullies. Liberal Fever Dreamers will need a bed, a cold glass of water and a pill of some sort because, courtesy of the agenda of President Trump, the United States getting back on its feet is moving rapidly from an idea to reality.
The liberal fever has hit a high point this week with all three gangs of the failed Democratic establishment screaming from the top of their respective mountains about the inevitable Trumpmageddon.
Tina Fey, the comedian who extended her career by impersonating Sarah Palin, made headlines last week by lecturing Trump-voting “college-educated white women,” because, you know, they were too smart to vote for him. Other women, not so much.
At a fundraiser for the American Civil Liberties Union (populated by our celebrity intellectual betters) Ms. Fey lectured, “A lot of this election was turned by white, college-educated women who now would like to forget about this election and go back to watching HGTV. … You can’t look away because it doesn’t affect you this minute, but it’s going to affect you eventually.”
Once recovered from the strong odor of smug in the room, the question really has to be, look away from what? The companies returning to the United States? The removal of criminal illegal aliens from our neighborhoods? The return of the rule of law? The hundreds of thousands of new jobs already created? The historical optimism reported by small businesses? The effort to keep terrorists out of the country?
It’s obvious Ms. Fey missed the irony of her remarks; it is exactly this patronizing, sanctimonious attitude that both men and women rejected in the election. Her comments also reveal how the feminist 1 percent presume if you’ve been washed through our safe-spaced university system, you’ve been “educated” enough to know you can’t have a mind of your own, and you must do as you’re told, for the betterment of the entire sisterhood, of course.
As a feminist, I’m thrilled this backward bullying of all women by today’s liberals has failed. On one hand, “educated” women are supposed to have been smart enough to reject Mr. Trump. Which implies other women who voted for him were just too stupid. But it’s an insult to their supposed tribe of Smart Women as well — after all, Ms. Fey thinks they’re all a bunch of poseurs who, God forbid, watch HGTV.
Says the woman who makes a living pretending to be other people and engaging in pratfalls on a skit comedy show. Got it.
Then there are the Fever Dreamers at the Los Angeles Times. Delirious from paranoia and fear, they decided they needed a four-part series to warn all living creatures about Trumpmageddon.
The Washington Examiner reported, “The Times’ first installment, ‘Our Dishonest President,’ said Trump’s policies are already hurting people, but said that is not the most frightening thing about Trump. ‘What is most worrisome about Trump is Trump himself,’ the Times wrote. ‘He is a man so unpredictable, so reckless, so petulant, so full of blind self-regard, so untethered to reality that it is impossible to know where his presidency will lead or how much damage he will do to our nation. Where will this end?’ the paper asked.”
A disaster of biblical proportions! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness, earthquakes, volcanoes! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats sleeping together! Yes, it appears someone at the Times watched “Ghostbusters” a few too many times.
Tom Perez, the new chairman of the Democratic National Committee, also had to make sure everyone knew how desperate things really are, you know, with all those jobs coming back, ISIS being walloped, and our border already more secure. At a rally in New Jersey, Mr. Perez shouted from the podium, “Donald Trump, you don’t stand for our values. You didn’t win this election.”
Well, actually, he did. But Mr. Perez knows what it’s like to lose. As Rob Schneider put it on Twitter: “2010 Dems lost the House. 2012 Dems lost the Senate. 2016 Dems lost the White House. 2017 Dems lost ability to reason. It’s not Russia, it’s YOU.”
The meltdown will become even more intense as Mr. Trump continues to focus on getting things done. This week brings renewed attention on repealing the scourge of Obamacare and the confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court. And despite activist judges attempting to interfere with the executive branch’s power, sooner than later the president’s executive order on travel to keep this nation more secure will also be implemented.
The media, Hollywood and smug liberals are getting a lesson from a president who isn’t swayed by screams or threats or even polls. He’s focused on making things in this country better. Mr. Trump does have a challenge, though, and that’s making sure his message is communicated clearly and strongly enough to make sure the malevolence of his opponents is barely audible like the old, dead leftist echo that it is.
