Interesting Perspective on Trump


The below is a Facebook post, and I think that the sentiments contained in it are completely defensible.

I added comments inline, in red font to demonstrate why I believe so. It’s an interesting perspective. The only one? Of course not. Certainly, however, a reasonable one.

Note: I didn’t write the post, I’m just passing it along. Much of it makes a lot of sense.


[Beginning of Facebook post]

“My position on Donald Trump: Make no mistake…I’m not posting this for debate. I don’t seek or need commentary. It’s ok if you don’t agree because we are all entitled to opinions. [Editor’s Note: Contrary to the author of this post, we welcome debate here. Please feel free to weigh in. Politely, of course. 🙂 ]

Just consider this…when you think the President is a jerk; he is. [Editor’s Note: Yep.]

He’s a New Yorker. He’s crude and can be rude. He gets his feelings hurt and he’s a hothead. He hits back; harder. The media hates it when he tweets. Why? Because he gets information out, they don’t want to report. [Editor’s Note: all this is obviously true.]

Let me tell you what else: He is a guy that demands performance. If you don’t work as hard as he does; you’re fired! [Editor’s Note: this is demonstrably true.]

He is a guy that asks lots of questions. [Editor’s Note: this is demonstrably true.]

The questions he asks aren’t cloaked in fancy “political” phrases; they are “why the hell…” questions. [Editor’s Note: this is demonstrably true.]

For decades the health industry has thrown away billions of face masks after one use. Trump asks, “why the hell are we throwing them away? Why not sterilize them and use them numerous times?” They called him stupid. What are they doing now? Sterilizing face masks. [Editor’s Note: this is demonstrably true.]

He’s the guy that gets hospital ships readied in one week when it would have taken bureaucrats weeks or months to get it done. [Editor’s Note: this is demonstrably true.]

He’s the guy that gets temporary hospitals built in three days. They said no way he could do it. [Editor’s Note: this is demonstrably true.]

He’s the guy that gets auto industries to restructure to build ventilators in a business that’s highly regulated by agencies that move like sloths. [Editor’s Note: this is demonstrably true.]

He’s the guy that asks “why aren’t we using drugs that might work on people that are dying; what the hell do we have to lose?” [Editor’s Note: this is demonstrably true.]

He’s the guy that restricted travel from China when the Democrats and liberal media were screaming “xenophobia” and “racist.” Now they’re wanting to know why didn’t he react sooner? [Editor’s Note: this is demonstrably true.]

He’s the guy that campaigned on securing the border – protecting America – in the face of screaming Democrats and the liberal media. (Both Clinton and Obama talked about a crisis at the border and Obama did some things to address the crisis, but they proved insufficient.) [Editor’s Note: this is demonstrably true.]

When Trump shut down borders in the midst of the coronavirus virus, they screamed louder. Then the rest of the world followed suit, including the European Union with travel between their member countries. [Editor’s Note: this is demonstrably true.]

His policy is always ‘America First.’ For many years we have complained about sending billions abroad, while Americans suffer here. He’s minimized that outflow of money. [Editor’s Note: this is demonstrably true.]

Has he made mistakes? Yes. [Editor’s Note: this is demonstrably true.]

Everyone I know has and does. [Editor’s Note: this is simply true.]

The “experts” wouldn’t and haven’t done any better. [Editor’s Note: this is likely true, especially in light of how often the “experts” have been wrong.]

Does he change his mind? Yes, who doesn’t? [Editor’s Note: this is likely true.]

Trump is working harder than I’ve ever seen a President work. Twenty-four-hour days. He isn’t hiding in his office; he’s out front – Briefing – every day. [Editor’s Note: this is demonstrably true.]

When he offers hope, they say he’s lying and when he’s straight forward, they say he should be hopeful. It’s a no-win situation, with the MSM [Editor’s Note: this is demonstrably true.], but he will not be deterred. [Editor’s Note: this seems true.]

I’ll take this kind of leadership six days a week and twice on Sunday over a “polished, nice guy” politician who reads prepared speeches from a teleprompter and answers pre-scripted questions. [Editor’s Note: I have to agree with this, and have made this point numerous times.]

He is my President, and will be for the next 4 1/2 years! [Editor’s Note: this is the opinion of the original author of the piece.]

  1. Amen. I thank God he is there right now rather than anybody else. Can you imagine the carastrophe with ANYpolitician at the helm? We needed fearless leadership.

    1. I know just what you mean, MB! Can you imagine a second President Clinton?!?!

      Nightmare!

      I take your point: It appears that Trump, for all his boorishness, is the ONLY one who could have faced down the tsunami of just toxic sludge bearing down on the country!

      And this ride ain’t over, that’s for sure!

      Best,
