In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s basically open season on Trump Hate.
No President before him has ever endured this type of media scrutiny. He used to be a media darling, and though he would say controversial things, no one spent too much time going after him. But that’s the weight of office. Now he’s more than just a billionaire celebrity, he’s the CEO of America, and off the cuff remarks have the ability to start financial wars.
There was almost a lull achieved. Trump was finally realizing that the Presidency was hard work, and that he wouldn’t be able to just steamroll his agenda through Congress. He started making huge compromises with Democrats, and chilled out on Twitter. Then something strange happened, and he decided to take aim at the NFL protests since the season was starting up again.
All of a sudden social media was at Defcon 1 and he had finally unified his opposition. The NFL itself was attacked when Trump called out team owners, they had to respond in kind. Sunday and Monday night team owners took to the field with their players in locked arms to do something they probably still don’t fully understand why they had to do it.
Now that the America is back to work after that car wreck of a weekend news cycle, all the day time tv talking heads are still stirring the pot. Whoopi Goldberg on the View where she went on another rant agains the President where actually called him the, Bum in Chief.
“Now when you see some of the things we’ve seen over the last years of young black men and black women being sort of man handled, not just by police, but lots of different folks,” she continued. “When you see the anger at black people and you know that some of those folks have fought in Iraq and have five or six tours of duties and they come back and they are disrespected, I say you have to pay attention when somebody is saying I need you to respect all of us, not just some of us, but all of us. America allows us to protest that way. He’s not blocking traffic. He is not hurting anybody. He’s not screaming. He’s down on one knee. It’s a silent protest.”
Is it proper to be so disrespectful, even when you’re standing up for people being disrespected themselves? It doesn’t seem to help your argument out when you’re trying to be heard by the President and be taken seriously, when you address him as a Bum…
