The first president to have the opening one hundred days of his administration scrutinized was Franklin Roosevelt. The marker, therefore, has since morphed into quite a big deal. Whether or not the big deal is good or bad, of course, depends on whether the president in question is a Republican or Democrat.
Donald Trump reached the one hundred day mark recently, but the difference between Trump and every president before him is the melding of the mainstream media and the political Left into one giant opposition party, as well as the both entities’ lack of willingness to hide that fact. We will come back to the phrase “opposition party” later. So, how did the Left do during its first one hundred days of the Trump administration?
You have to hand it to them. The Left wasted no time. Election night was not pretty with lefties moaning, groaning, yelling, screaming, and gnashing their teeth. They vowed that Donald Trump would never be their president. They just knew those rascally Republicans had somehow cheated their way into the White House. Because, after all, how else would they win an election? Some areas across the country even dealt with riots, something that usually happens when lefties realize their gravy train of entitlements is about to come to a screeching halt. The cries of impeachment started almost immediately after the riots ended and continued today.
Just one question, however. On what basis would this happen?
The day after inauguration day, the now infamous “Women’s March” took place in Washington D.C. “Oppressed” celebrities like Madonna and Ashley Judd showed up in their pink body part hats and talked about highly intellectual pursuits like thinking about blowing up the White House and sharing their habits of poor hygiene with the world. However, the Left was just warming up.
Most rational people on both sides usually agree on one thing: the family of the president is off limits. Spouses and children did not run for office and should not be subjected to personal attacks. For the Trump family, however, those rules were promptly tossed out the window. First Lady Melania Trump, Trump’s older children Don Jr., Eric, and Ivanka, even 10-year old Barron seem to be fair game for people who are clearly unhinged simply because they did not get their way.
As usual, the media is all too happy to jump in and help out. They have attempted to portray Trump supporters as racist, bigoted, and misogynistic homophobes. They are just knuckle-dragging gun toting bible thumpers from fly-over country that are too stupid to realize Donald Trump has taken them all for suckers. They are too backward to understand that the media is smarter and more sophisticated than they are because of the media, after all, knows what is best for them.
And the Democrats? Their answer has been to let Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren label these people as “the party of opposition. That is our job.” The party also has a new chair, former Obama labor secretary Tom Perez. Perez, they hope, will dig the Democrats out of the hole that everyone but the media sees them to be in.
The DNC chair’s solution to the task appears to be profanity laced speeches. During one speech where Perez talked about the Republican’s health care plan, he declared that “Republicans don’t give a s*** about people!” Yeah, that should do it. Stay classy Democrats.
Then there were the pre-requisite protests on Trump’s actual 100th day. The usual suspects held these protests in the usual places, Washington, New York, and San Francisco. For many of the protesting snowflakes, it is the 60s all over again. Who needs a job when they “just know” that revolution is right around the corner?
So that we are all on the same page, make no mistake: this temper tantrum will go on for at least the next four years. As conservatives, we know that this is well organized and, more importantly, well funded. So hang on. While at times it could be a bumpy ride, the fight is ramping up. Stand up, speak out, and don’t stop.
