Default Why does the left really hate President Trump?

Tucker Carlson, on FNC, had a very good analysis night before last: Those on the left frequently claim that they dislike President Trump because of his ubiquitous lies. So much so, in fact, that many claim to have it down to an exact number--reaching into the thousands.

And it is true that President Trump sometimes stretches the truth (to state it euphemistically)--beginning with his claim that his inauguration drew the largest crowd in history.

However (as Tucker Carlson correctly points out), it is really not the lies that the left especially hates--despite its claims that it really, really does. Rather, it is President Trump's exposure of the truth, as concerning bureaucrats; in other words, what he would call the Deep State.

Comments?

Even moderate republicans hate the Donald some, truth be told.....


Why, because he earns it....

He isn't a president for all Americans, he only panders to his voters....


His daily Tweets aimed at the other half of the political electorate are full of hate and plenty of lies....

No president in my lifetime has lied more than Trump....

The reasons are many but, he still is the president elect....

For those that don't understand, think back to the reasons why that group hated Obama or Clinton....

As far as tracking lies, Politifact tracked Obama and ended up with six or seven pages of lies during his term.....

They do the same for Trump and anyone can check the quotes with dates for reference material....

The list is long....

You would make a good argument except for one simple fact..

The hatred was heavily manifested WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY before he became president...The "impeachment!" chants were even before he had his first diet coke as president...

As far as the question proposed in the OP title, there are two major reasons the Left "really" hates Trump...

1) The superficial reason...He denied the coronation of the Hillary..."In the bag" was never so used (and so misguided)…Winning against a Democrat is now a felony...Just ask Bush41 or the state of Georgia…

2) The deep-seated reason...Not only did the Trumpster block a Leftward swing of the country, but his embrace (and success) of capitalism is KILLING the idea of "needing the government" to survive (and prosper)...He didn't just delay a Socialist takeover...He set it back 20 years...

Polifact is well known for its political partisanship. But no doubt the false claim of biggest inauguration crowd ever was equal in impact to "if you like your doctor you can keep them under the ACA". Resistance zealots abandon all sense of perspective to tout a list made by partisan "fact checkers" as authentic.

If you are offended by dishonesty, you must be furious over the false Russian collusion narrative and boiling mad over the impeachment sham inquiry. Multiple Congressional and FBI investigations as well as the special counsel didn't find any Americans engaged in so-called collusion with the Russians. Neither the telephone call transcript nor statements by the Ukrainian President showed the President engaging in coercion or bribery but Democrats insist on impeachment anyway even changing the charges based on a focus group.

(R) that's it. that's the reason. had it been a (D) they'd love him. well unless the old white male would have still been enough to trigger them. the fact that he's not even close to being the far right conservative they claim he is explains their shift leftward. to the point they don't even hide their socialist goals. they just call it democratic socialism and then incorrectly compare it to denmark. that shift toward openly socialist was necessary to put enough distance between them and trump to make the claim he's a far right extremist. thus making their brand of socialism appear moderate. the socialists love it while the rest of the country thinks they're nuts. heck, politicians like bloomberg and hillary now appear to be too far right for the loudest democrats these days.

I heard something interesting the other day:

Bloomberg is now considered a "moderate" Democrat.

And, considering the competition--i.e. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren--he does, indeed, seem rather moderate.

But he is what used to be known a (conventional) liberal...

The left--as, for instance, with Dave1--focuses upon the lies attributed to President Trump--and some of what he says is, indeed, less than 100 percent truthful--but it will simply refuse to address the truth that he states, that no past politician has dared to address.

Gee, I wonder just why that is...

If that is a fact then why did they hammer Obama for lying so much....?


Politifact is more factual than FOX or CNN for reference material....

Interesting take above....

I am struggling to recall the times that you addressed Obama telling the truth for the eight years he was POTUS.....

Gee, I wonder why that is too....
