WASHINGTON: Just as deranged North Korea’s “little rocket man,” Kim Jong-un, appears ready to step back from the ledge and denuclearize his nation, the mainstream media and Hollywood are stepping into the breach with their very own brand of madness. In just 500 days that shook the world, the modus operandi of foreign politics has changed. The anger over Trump, and his successes, is nothing short of leftist insanity modus.
Raging against the dying of all their bullsh*t
“Raging Bull” star Robert De Niro took a moment during the Great White Way’s Tony Award ceremony to show he could out crazy any North Korean dictator and all of Iran’s raving clerics.
“I’m gonna say one thing, said De Niro while doing his best impression of Tony Soprano, “Fuck Trump! It’s no longer ‘down with Trump,’ it’s ‘fuck Trump!”
Even the dean of Washington journalism, Bob Woodward, recently told Newsweek that members of his Trump-deranged profession “have a lot of work to do. A number of reporters have at times become emotionally unhinged about it all, one way or the other.”
Trump’s 500 days that shook the world
And who can blame them. Just 500 days after assuming the presidency, the Trump economy is booming, job creation is humming right along, and Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation is coming up bupkis.
Meanwhile, the titular leader of America’s angry and deranged, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, says the Democratic Party’s poster child for the upcoming midterm elections is the murderous gang MS-13. She insists Democrats from sea to shining sea detect “the divine spark” in each and every one of these dirty angels with tattooed faces.
Trump, meanwhile, headed for meetings in Singapore to strip North Korea of its nuclear arsenal, having just attended the G7 summit in Canada to strip the smug grins off the faces of global elites in the industrialized democracies. The same ones who have benefited mightily since the close of the Second World War from U.S. military protection and sweetheart economic trade deals.
Gone are the bad old Obama days
This is quite a contrast from the beginning of Barack Obama’s administration. As you may remember, he dismissed his failure to enact positive policies to bolster economic activity and, instead, blamed predecessor George W. Bush for the bad economy ad nauseum.
And the last month of his presidency,
“The Obama administration issued a record number of new regulations on its way out the door… leaving an administrative state that saps the economy of nearly $2 trillion a year,” wrote David Sherfinski of the Washington Times.
Obama may have used a “phone and a pen” to craft regulations designed to stifle the U.S. economy for eight long years, but Trump’s presidential phone and pen quickly dispatched his predecessor’s rules to the ash heap of history.
Trump hasn’t mentioned Obama in a long, long time. And the former Chicago community organizer is having a devil of a time getting approval for a South Side Chi-Town location for his presidential library. Locals fear the gentrification of old Jackson Park will follow in its wake.
A child’s parable for deranged Trump “resistance”
De Niro and the other perpetual adolescents of the so-called Trump “resistance” should read young Emma Straub’s Huffington Post piece for teens (HERE) grappling with resentment over the positive accomplishments of others:
“It’s an ugly way to feel – unhappy because of someone else’s success – but human beings are often ugly… It takes so much energy to resent people, especially when they actually haven’t done anything to you… So how do you deal, without building an army of voodoo dolls and/or coming off like a Negative Nelly, one of those sour-faced, miserable people who is always complaining about someone else’s happiness?”
Straub’s answer to teens applies to Robert De Niro and Hillary Clinton: “Move on”:
“It’s OK to feel sorry for yourself for not getting something you wanted, especially if you worked really hard to get it… Find whatever makes you the happiest and do that, over and over again. Soon enough, golden tickets will rain from the sky, and everyone around you will cheer.”
The same way the folks in Trumplandia now cheer President Trump and his booming economy.
