Former President Trump is the Left’s foil. They need to blame all the ills of the world on him. They are obsessed with him. It is almost like they had a chip implanted in their brains that makes them think about Trump all the time.
Trump has been out of office for over a month now, and yet he is still the most talked-about politician in the world. Regardless of what you think about Trump, there has never been anyone in politics like him.
For example, as of this writing, four of the top five most-read stories on The Hill’s website are about Trump.
The Left needs him for the simple fact that nobody is entertained by Sleepy Joe Biden. He is never going to be a ratings driver, which is why the media always inevitably circles back to Trump.
The latest witch hunt against Trump revolves around a Supreme Court decision forcing Trump to turn over his tax and financial records.
The Left has been obsessed with Trump’s tax returns since the day he came down the escalator at Trump Tower to announce his candidacy in 2015. They are genuinely convinced that they are going to catch him in some sort of egregious financial crime and that he will be wearing a matching orange jumpsuit soon.
In Palm Beach, where Trump now resides, his neighbors are trying to evict him from his home at Mar-a-Largo and his Twitter account has been deleted.
He was also impeached for the second time despite not calling for violence on Capitol Hill and also not being president anymore, and New York Mayor Bill De Blasio was going to close Trump-owned ice rinks in Central Park before caving and reversing his decision.
CNN and MSNBC continue to ridicule Trump and his supporters. Don Lemon and Joe Scarborough can’t go five minutes without putting down Trump and MAGA nation.
Trump made politics fun to cover, but Sleepy Joe is boring. His people roll him out to sign unconstitutional executive orders and then he goes back to his room to watch the Price is Right.
So, I guess I can’t completely blame them for missing Trump.
A news cycle would turn on the dime with one Trump tweet or one statement he made. Joe Biden is a mumbling old man who is barely coherent and stares at a teleprompter like a man who is undergoing a vision test.
They call a lid on his day in the middle of the afternoon and we never hear from him again until the next morning.
Trump filled the news void on a daily basis. He gave the lamestream media ample material and they clearly miss the free content he provided.
There was the two-year Russia hoax investigation that began before he was president and accelerated when Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who then instigated the Mueller special counsel that was established by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
The investigation yielded NO evidence of so-called “collusion” between the Trump administration and Russia to fix the 2016 election, finding instead a plot that was devised and made up by the Hillary Clinton campaign—an inconvenient fact ignored by the mainstream media. Hillary Clinton has still never really accepted her defeat.
Fortunately for the Democrats and their media allies, Trump isn’t going away anytime soon.
On Sunday at CPAC in Orlando, Florida, Trump will be making his return to the political stage. What can the nation expect from the former president’s first public appearance since leaving office?
