The Trump Haters hate on and on and on.
The deranged hatred of Donald Trump by the left and the media is so strong, it is never going to stop.
If they had the chance, I actually think the Democrats would put a crown of thorns on Trump’s head, make him carry his own cross and send him to be crucified.
On national TV.
With Rachel Maddow, Chuck Todd, and Jimmy Kimmel doing the play-by-play.
Of course, if the Democrat mob was given the choice between letting Barabbas the murderer or Trump the president go free, there’d be no doubt who they’d choose.
Crucify Him! Crucify Him!
He’d not one of us! He’s not a career politician!
Crucify him! He’s the one who slayed St. Hillary!
A literal crucifixion of the president isn’t too likely, I guess, no matter how hard the media prayed.
In the media it’s all bad Trump-all the time.
The entertainment and journalism arms of the major mainstream media, except for Fox, have essentially become the alt-left.
They are almost as hysterical, unfair, unbalanced, and hateful as the conspiracy-minded alt-right media were under Obama.
But the alt-right was tiny. It was out on the fringe.
It was obsessed with crazy things like Obama’s birthplace, his radical leftwing friends and his serial apologizing for America.
The “respectable” alt-left mainstream anti-Trump media is the political equivalent of the anti-Obama alt-right.
They are just as hysterical, biased and obsessed with finding anything in Trump’s past or present that might bring him down.
No outlandish conspiracy theory, no half-assed accusation of lawbreaking by a Democrat, no leaked uncorroborated information by an anonymous source is too small for our biased journalists to beat us to death with on the front page.
If the liberal media can’t prove President Trump’s done anything seriously wrong, which is the case so far, they attack or smear any celebrity, woman or black person who supports him or works for his administration.
Roseanne Barr got her media drubbing for having the nerve to stand up for Trump last month.
Now it’s Kanye West’s turn to be trashed for daring to leave the Democrat Party plantation.
He’s been misinterpreted and disowned for standing up for Trump, for urging modern blacks not to be held back by a slave mentality and for quoting the great black conservative economist and author, Thomas Sowell.
This week one of the top thugs in the Crips publicly urged gang members to “mess” up Kanye for holding his politically incorrect opinions.
The mainstream media reaction to that threat on Kanye’s life so far?
Meanwhile, in news that matters, North Korea is talking denuclearization, making peace with South Korea after 70 years and letting three American prisoners go free as a good gesture.
At home in Trump America unemployment rates for blacks, Latinos and women are down.
Those accomplishments aren’t bigger news stories than porn “performer” Stormy Daniels’ attorney’s 37th appearance on CNN?
Not if Donald Trump had anything to do with them.
The liberal media and the Washington-New York-Hollywood Axis of Evil they serve won’t let good news about Trump be heard because they hate him too much.
He broke the political system they loved — the racket that said only career politicians can run for office, not regular human beings.
The same people who hate Trump hated my dad for many of the same reasons.
He wasn’t one of them. He was a non-politician. He was going to start World War III. He was an empty suit.
The Democrats and the MSM hated Ronald Reagan until it was no longer politically correct to hate him - because he died.
Then they said they loved him.
The people who hate President Trump will never love him, alive or crucified.
They’ll always choose Barabbas.
