Is this worth it?

June 5, 2018

On the heels of another nasty CNN clickbait piece concerning  First Lady Melania Trump, some Trump supporters are wondering if their desire to expose the corruption in our government  is worth the pain it is bringing to President Trump’s family.

Not since the early 1800’s has a First Lady been attacked so personally, just to inflict damage on her husband.

Other First Ladies have drawn their share of nasty press, but primarily it has been due to their own political activism

Probably the closest historical figure who received treatment similar to this was Rachel Jackson, in 1806. Perhaps luckily for modern day journalists, dueling is now illegal.

But back to the original question.

Certainly , none of President Trump’s backers wished this on his family. Indeed, it’s doubtful that any of them even foresaw this.

Still, the President’s history was not unknown to them, and if they thought about it all, they knew his personal history was going to be a factor.

That said, most of them feel that exposing Washington for the morass it is,  is still important.

“Miranda” put it this way.

“I hate that Mrs. Trump and her son are caught in the middle of all this and I would do anything I could to defend her. But really, what choice did we have as voters? The country desperately needed someone like the President, and no one offered us up a saint. I believe Mrs. Trump is a strong lady, and I can only hope she can see that too.”

That seems to be the long and short of it. Trump’s voters have been attacked since 2 in the morning of November 9, and even well beforehand.

In the end, Trump’s supporters are judging him on his results, and likewise they are judging his opponents by their actions as well.

In the court of public opinion, it is no wonder that the MSM is receiving a failing grade. They richly deserve it.
