Do Hugs And Hand-Holding Save Lives And Repair Homes?
And, of course, right on the heels of this criticism that he is not being out-front and personal enough with those people who are suffering, is the opposite criticism that he is concentrating too much attention on himself and not being impersonal enough and letting the victims take the forefront of attention. Even in the face of a disaster of unseen proportions that this hurricane has produced, liberals can’t set aside their hate of Donald Trump and appreciate the emergency assistance the federal government has provided. It’s a certainty that if Trump had not gone to the devastated area and had not met with local officials and given the help that he has indeed provided, that liberal Democrats would be wailing and moaning about how unfeeling and insensitive Trump was in this hour of need. But the partisan, political attacks on Trump are always there, the Democrats just change the words to fit the current circumstance.
When Trump announced that he would personally donate a million dollars of his own money to help the locals provide relief, liberals could have taken this as a personal “hug” of sorts, but instead they claimed that Trump was only thinking of himself, that he was trying to up-stage the people suffering in Texas and that he was placing his wealth before the welfare of the hurricane victims. But the snotty, petty and bitchy negative statements of a female CNN reporter about the “inappropriate” shoes that Melania Trump wore as she boarded Air Force One while accompanying Trump to Texas for their first visit there, is beyond explanation or understanding. Hillary informed us that an attack on one woman was an attack on all women, so has the CNN reporter apologized to the women of America for her attack on them, via Melania Trump? One would be ill-advised to hold one’s breath awaiting the apology.
Trump-hating is destroying Democrats. What saves lives and repairs flooded homes is not hugs nor hand-holding nor childish comments about the First Lady’s shoes, it’s quick, decisive action, and that’s what President Trump is good at, and that’s what he’s been providing and will continue to provide.
