Default Trump's Talking Past You

Original Op-Ed...My thoughts...

I've noticed something that shows how out of touch the media and the "authorities" are with the public at large...

Trump hold a rally where tens of thousands cheer...Then the media attacks what he said...

Trump speaks to the Boy Scouts where tens of thousands cheer...Then the head of the Boy Scouts apologizes for his remarks...

Trump speaks to police officers and makes a crack about handling criminals rougher during arrests, and the officers present laugh and applaud...Then political correct police chiefs feel the need to denounce...

See the pattern?...

Trump speaks to the front lines...the people in the field...The ones not with a public voice...and they agree with him soundly...

...and all the while, the people who DO have the microphone or the official office seal do not even take the reactions of his audience into account and puff their chests with statements and condemnations from their ivory towers...These are the same statements and condemnations members right here on the forum display proudly as if they clean the steps of those ivory towers and thank them for the opportunity...

The people listening are the "forgotten men and women" Trump talked about...The same people the Left can never understand and mock Trump for saying it...

...and the people out of touch are the ones demanding you to listen to them for the elitists know better then the "uneducated" voters they insulted after the election...

So what. A president is not supposed to advocate certain things and with reflection we know it. Because idiots cheer does not mean his comments are statesman like. Germans cheered Hitler. How did that turn out?

The only idiots here in this country are left wing idiots, like yourself.

The post is correct, there is a double standard with the media. The majority cheer while the left wing idiot media crows out lies.

The reaction with all the intelligence of a fruit fly validates the assertions in the editorial. Unable to put the comment on ignore, his usual display of Left wing open mindedness, the response is to condemn as "idiots" and insist Trump is the new incarnation of Hitler.

Violent fascist Left wing thugs rioting in the street and attacking peaceful opposition to their totalitarian tantrum is ignored as is the former nominee announcing she is joining the resistance mindless opposing everything Trump does.

So let's see if I understand this correctly. Because the people cheer at an event or rally then whatever Trump's says that makes them cheer is beyond scrutiny. We shouldn't question what Trump is saying instead we should just listen to the crowd.

When Trump held campaign rallies that were heavily attended by White Supremacists and White Nationalists, gaining the formal endorsement of the KKK, it was okay for Trump to promote religious intolerance by calling for "Banning Muslims" and ethnic intolerance by calling Mexicans "rapists and murders" during his campaign. We're supposed to ignore what he said because the White Nationalists/White Supremacists were the "forgotten men and women" of America. We should ignore the resulting rise in racist intimidation and violence in America because of Trump's inspirational words of racism and intolerance.

When Donald Trump addresses police officers and advocates police brutality and the audience of police officers cheers we're supposed to ignore what he said. The fact that police brutality is a serious issue for police departments across the nation but Trump's statements should simply be ignored because police officers responded with approval when Trump advocated police brutality.

And when Trump attends a Boy Scout rally, where the Boy Scouts are clearly identified as a non-partisan organization and they're not even old enough to vote, and Trump inappropriately turns the event into a political rally we should simply ignore Donald Trump because the children cheered without even knowing that they were cheering for a president that's out to destroy nature and the environment that the Boy Scouts advocate protecting.

We should simply ignore whatever Trump says, even if he's blatantly lying, advocating violations of the law and Constitution, and conning his audiences just as long as the audience applauds.

Is that what's being proposed?

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

This is where the whole op-ed falls apart.

Under the last several years of Obama, you guys were proclaiming his approval rating was crap when it wasn't. When Obama's ratings were MUCH HIGHER than Trump's are now, you guys were claiming Obama was being recognized as a disaster...
... but you refuse to have the same recognition now.

SOME voices shout out in praise, and you automatically proclaim it's a majority. Because you don't want to look at the facts regarding your president and his actual approval rating.

The Boy Scouts is one typical example where you assume that because people are polite to speak after the fact that the unchallenged applause means he was met with unfettered praise.
Cause the rest of us have all seen what Trump does to those who challenge him. And you refuse to acknowledge how crazed that is.


And it astounds me you actually think Trump is speaking FOR you ...

He's got a handful of things he is harmonizing with you on like the wall he'll never build...
... but you still haven't gotten that he isn't "your" president.

The reason he keeps "talking past" is because he is still seeking praise and assurances. His fragile ego knows what you don't want to admit and while he hasn't passed one piece of his own legislation, he is still committed to campaigning to persuade people to like him.
Cause that's what this has been about. And you were too fixated on seeing him as being a symbol of your frustration and outrage to care...

Yeah!... We need to outlaw all that cheering, Dammit. Unless it is for a Democrat.
