I got severely criticized by the Fake News Media for being too nice to President Putin. In the Old Days they would call it Diplomacy. If I was loud & vicious, I would have been criticized for being too tough. Remember when they said I was too tough with Chairman Kim? Hypocrites!

A recent poll shows grassroots Republicans approve of President Donald Trump’s performance in Helsinki, despite the best efforts of liberal Democrats and media pundits to trash the president for absolutely everything he did/does and said/says.
The Axios/SurveyMonkey poll asked,”Do you approve or disapprove of the way Trump handled his press conference with Putin?” Seventy-nine percent of Republicans approved.
“Who the hell are these people?” an incredulous Joe Scarborough, host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” asked on Friday’s show. He and his ilk are stunned that President Trump would invite Russian President Vladimir Putin to the United States, when Trump’s recent meeting in Helsinki was “called treasonous” by the elites.
“Who are these people and what have they done to my party?” asked Scarborough, who has left the Republican Party and is about to marry his very liberal “Morning Joe” co-host.
“It was just really shocking that the president of the United States — after being called treasonous by quite a few people in the foreign policy/defense community– still trying to clean up…the mess that he created when he went to Helsinki and kowtowed to an ex-KGB agent, that he rushes to announce that now Vladimir Putin is coming to Washington, before cleaning up the last mess on aisle 7.”
Scarborough gave his own spin to the poll showing that 80 percent of Americans “think it’s okay to cower before an ex-KGB agent, to insult allies. You do wonder, is it just a Donald Trump problem now? This is a problem with the party cast wide.”
Scarborough warned that support for Trump will ultimately “destroy” the Republican Party.
Joining the chorus, contributor John Heilemann said: “I think the corruption and bankruptcy of the Republican Party has been a long time in the making, but there is no Republican Party any more in any sense that you would have defined the Republican Party ten years ago, and the way that you would have, what the Republican Party stood for, at least in the post-World War II era.
“It has become the party of Donald Trump,” Heilemann said. “And so in a thorough way, we’ve seen this, not just in the polling — the startling polling in relation to how Republicans now have seen the performance of Donald Trump in Helsinki, presumably how they will see his invitation now of Vladimir Putin to come to Washington to give him the ultimate kind of — ah, rather than to chastise him, rather than to criticize him for Russia’s role in meddling in an American election, he’s giving him the ultimate kind of cherry-on-top of a sundae. This is a thing that a Russian president would want most of all to get.””
“But, John,” Scarborough said, “it goes to Republicans, though. Rank-and-file Republicans — 75 percent, 80 percent saying they liked what he did in Helsinki when even, again, his closest allies in the media said he was either treasonous or a complete dupe.
“Who are these people that I grew up with that were the most — the toughest on Russia, that fought the cold war alongside with NATO? When the Soviets’ goal during the Cold War is the same goal that Vladimir Putin has now, which is to disrupt Western democracies and break up NATO? The goal is identical to what Republicans always supported. And you talk about trade. 73 percent of Republicans now are telling pollsters that they think tariffs are good for America?
“This — again, who are these people? It’s like — like political body snatchers,” Scarborough lamented.
Heilemann again: “Joe, these are the people who now call themselves — now are the Republican Party. The people who you think of as having constituted the Republican Party in your life growing up in the party — they are now either no longer in the party, or they are, in a kind of weak and craven way, sitting on the sidelines and wringing their hands over what Donald Trump has done to the party, but not really doing much about it. Some of them are speaking out, some of them are not…
“But the rank and file of the party now, the — the grass-roots of the Republican party are people who believe what Donald Trump believes, and not what you believe, and not what Republicans believed in the post-world war II era; they don’t believe in free trade, they don’t believe in immigration, they don’t believe in standing up to Russian, previously Soviet, expansionism, they don’t believe in NATO — they don’t believe those things. That’s not what the Republican Party is anymore. So to answer your question, I don’t know what happens.”
Scarborough said for the past two decades, he could go to any Lincoln-Reagan dinner across America, “and you could say the same thing wherever you went, and you’d get the applause. Now — according to these polls it’s not a split. Now 80 percent of Americans are fine with Donald Trump’s kowtowing to an ex-KGB agent who wants to destroy our allies, and wants to disrupt our elections. And they — now, you look at this poll, they support tariffs.
“What the hell — what the hell — who the hell are these people?! What is wrong with these Republicans?! Where has the party, not of my youth, but of my early 50s gone?!” Scarborough asked.
“It’s gone, Joe,” guest Susan del Percio said.
And the funeral went on from there.
I guess that Joe Scarborough thought that the entire nation would be so gullible as to buy the spin that the Main Stream Media pumped out 24/7 for several days in a row about President Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin and the Press Conference after it.
Evidently, Joe and the rest of the Democratic Party lackeys whom we refer to as the Main Stream Media learned nothing from the Presidential Campaign and Election of 2016.
If you will recall, the MSM spent hours upon hours, days upon days attempting to drag Hillary Clinton’s Far Left cantankerous old as…err…self across the finish line.
In fact, they were so certain that Hillary’s victory the evening of November 8, 2016 was a fait accompli, that the look on the faces of the anchors and pundits on Joe’s own network, MSNBC, and the other Liberal News Channels was one of utter shock and disbelief when the returns started pouring in and states that were supposedly in Hillary’s back pocket went to Trump.
My bride and I stayed up and laughed out loud.
But, I digress…
All of these Cable News “Political Pundits”, including Joe Scarborough, still have no clue as to why they lost.
Nor do they understand whom it was that elected Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America and continue to stand by him today with no hesitation.
Hey, Joe…let me explain a little concept I like to call “reality”…
Between the states that butt up against the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, there is a massive area of land where average Americans live in major cities, suburbs, and small towns, known as the “Heartland of America”.
We average Americans live our lives quite differently than you guys in the areas of the Northeast known as the Beltway and the Big Apple and the area on the other side of the nation known as the Left Coast.
We were brought up to believe in a system of Traditional American Faith and Values and in morality and ethics.
We were taught to stand up and place our hands over our hearts during our National Anthem.
We were taught to respect others by using phrases which are probably foreign to you such as “yes, sir” and “no, ma’am” and “please” and “thank you”.
We were also raised to be proud of America and what she stands for and to honor those who protect us at home and abroad while sacrificing their lives in her defense.
We are a Constitutional Republic created by Founders who pledged “their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor” in order to fight a war which freed us from tyranny and which created a country that would not be governed by mob rule.
So, Joe…”who the Hell” are we?
We are the people whom you and your co-members of the Democratic Party forgot about in your zeal to bow to special interest groups and to take this nation on a path which it was never meant to go on….one of “Democratic Socialism”, i.e. “Marxism”.
We are average Americans and WE, not the Russians, elected Donald J Trump the President of the United States of America.
And, we will continue to stand by him as long as he continues to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.
He’s doing fine so far.
…And, you guys can’t stand it.
Until He Comes,
