I should have a regular topic called “American Greatness” Topic of the Day.
The latest gem is “The Method to Trump’s Madness.” Victor Davis Hanson makes a lot of great points here. He addresses the reason why Trump employs such a bizarre strategy as Twitter Attacks on other politicians and the Media and even the NFL. Here’s a sample:
“The issue is never just Trump’s outbursts or tweets in isolation but, rather, the comparisons between them and his targets. Again, attacking NFL players may not be presidential, but Trump’s pushback is often judged by many voters on the basis of its intent—in other words, an effort to oppose the growing trend of multimillionaire athletes refusing to stand for the National Anthem. If we have never seen a president stoop to fight with the NFL, we have also never seen the NFL kneel to self-destruct by offending millions of its fans. If the president cannot defend a national tradition of standing in honor during the National Anthem, who else could?
Pollsters, pundits, and the media have vastly underestimated how many in America loathe multimillionaire celebrities, pampered athletes, and triangulating politicians—the usual targets of Trump’s invective.”
Read the whole thing. It’s extremely well thought out.
