Not very original, this column by WSJ pundit Peggy Noonan, but a decent (if appropriately partly fake) summary of what Trumpalot faces:
“Normally a new president has someone backing him up, someone publicly behind him. Mr. Obama had the mainstream media—the big broadcast networks, big newspapers, activists and intellectuals, pundits and columnists of the left—the whole shebang. He had a unified, passionate party. Mr. Trump in comparison has almost nothing.
“The mainstream legacy media oppose him, even hate him, and will not let up. The columnists, thinkers and magazines of the right were mostly NeverTrump; some came reluctantly to support him. His party is split or splitting. The new president has gradations of sympathy, respect or support from exactly one cable news channel, and some websites. He really has no one but those who voted for him.”
And us Deplorables will continue to do so and hopefully be enough. She neglected to mention Breitbart News, of course, this former Reagan staffer who actually voted for Hussein. The Internet has never been her thing.
And, likewise, the upstart cable newser One America News Network. But otherwise she summarized it pretty well. Our new executive is likely to be in a constant tug-of-war with all the aforementioned supporters of the Ruling Class. And if the Dims take back the House in 2018, they certainly will find a reason to impeach him. So it’s likely to be a rocky two years ahead and maybe more.
But enjoyable for a deplorable for all that. Let the games begin!
