Welcome to “The Age of the Deplorables”: President Trump’s Pennsylvania Rally (A KJ Sunday Morning Analysis)
“You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.” – Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton, September 16, 1916
Foxnews.com reports that
President Trump hosted a patriotic rally in Pennsylvania Saturday with thousands of supporters to mark the promises made and promises kept during his first 100 days of action in the White House.
“There is no place I would rather be than right here in Pennsylvania to celebrate our 100-day milestone to reflect on an incredible journey together and to get ready for the great, great battles to come and that we will win in every case,” the president told an enthusiastic throng in Harrisburg. “Make no mistake, we are just beginning in our fight to make America great again!”
Vice President Mike Pence introduced the president as “a man of his word and a man of action,” acknowledging their 2016 “big, beautiful victory” in the blue-leaning state.
This was, of course, miles away from the annual White House Correspondents Dinner, which Trump ceremoniously said he would not attend, amid his repeated accusations about “fake news” and a press corps of “dishonest media” eager to challenge his agenda. At the start of the rally, Trump told the roaring crowd that more than half of Americans say that the media is out of touch with everyday people.
His return to Pennsylvania was a thank you, like the one he delivered to Florida voters last month in Tampa. To screams and cheers, the President said “now arrives the hour of action” –rallying his base with the credo: “Buy American and hire American!”
“For the last 100 days my administration has been delivering every single day for the great citizens of our country, whether it’s putting our coal miners back to work, protecting America’s steel and aluminum workers, or eliminating job killing regulations, we are keeping one promise after another and frankly the people are really happy about it,” Trump said.
“The previous administration gave us a mess. For decades our country has lived through the greatest jobs’ theft in the history of the world. Our factories were shuttered. Our steel mills closed down,” he said. “Our jobs were stolen away and shipped far away to other countries, some of which you have never even heard of. Politicians sent troops to protect the borders of foreign nations but left America’s borders wide open for all to violate.”
Trump also listed several accomplishments including getting Judge Neil Gorsuch appointed to the Supreme Court with relative ease in a politically divided Senate as well as approval of the Keystone pipeline.
As I write my analysis of this event, it is 10:46 p.m. Central, and I am sitting at my computer in my man cave, having worked from 12:30 to 9:30p.m. on what is essentially my “Thursday”.
To a struggling Middle Class 58-year old average American like myself, Donald J Trump, his actions, and the way that he has conducted himself since Inauguration Day is a much-appreciated breath of fresh air.
Here is this New York City Billionaire, handing over his companies to his kids, taking no salary, so that he can hold the hardest, most thankless job in the whole wide world, that of President of United States of America. A job which, by the way, he is refusing to take a salary for…unlike his predecessor.
But, I digress…
He is trying to keep all of his Campaign Promises, despite having to do battle everyday with an uncooperative Democrat Minority in Congress, who are trying their best to sabotage him every single day in every single way that their Liberally-corrupt minds can think of.
Additionally, as he referenced at his rally Saturday Night, he is having to defend himself and his Administration from scurrilous attacks by the Purveyors of Fake News, still, after 100 days, publishing baseless story after baseless story, seemingly working in lockstep with Internet Liberal Trolls, paid and unpaid, who are posting these lies on social media like rabbits churning out baby bunnies and attacking the President like the mindless bots they are the moment that he posts a tweet on Twitter.
Y’know, boys and girls, as I have noted previously, I have never seen a Political Ideology lose their collective
shi…err…minds like the Far Left Liberals of the Democratic Party have.
I have never seen this many people show their backsides at the same time, since the streaking craze back when I was in high school in the 70s.
And, as I have chronicled, some of these idiots are actually getting paid for it.
Meanwhile, outside our Sovereign Nation, in the little country of North Korea, a pudgy little named Kim Jong Un is purposefully trying to pick a fight with us by threatening us with nuclear annihilation.
And yet, there President Trump was, smiling, being positive about our country, while telling that crowd of average Americans like me, that WE ARE HIS FRIENDS.
What a change from his predecessor, who told us average Americans that IT WAS ALL OUR FAULT.
But again…I digress…
In fact, at a previous rally in Melbourne, Florida, President Trump brought one of US up on that stage to stand with him, because HIS OPINION MATTERED.
Get that? WE MATTER!!!
The hopes and dreams of average Americans have not mattered for the last 8 years.
While spoiled, ungrateful college kids and Internet Trolls continue to cry, whine, and cling to fake news stories about “horrible ” president Trump is, those of us out here in “Realityville”, as Rush Limbaugh calls “Real Life” in America’s Heartland, are relishing the fact that we (not the Russians) elected a President who means what he says and says what he means.
The “Age of the Special Interest Groups” passed when the Obamas left the White House.
Welcome to the “Age of the ‘Deplorables'”. (Otherwise known as “Average Americans”.)
And, the great thing is…
President Trump is just getting started!
Until He Comes,
