Dems show true colors during Trump's speech

Once again, the Democrats in Washington showed the entire country how despicable and low they can get. During President Donald Trump’s State of The Union speech last week, Democrats showed with crystal clear clarity how angry and unhinged they are. They are so distracted by their own rage and frustration against a man they truly believe is not worthy of the position he has attained.

Trump gets his opponents to reveal that rage and their hatred for him and in so doing, they reveal the worst in themselves. When detailing the record low unemployment figure for African-Americans, members of the Congressional Black Caucus sat on their hands. In fact, they did worse than not react. When cameras focused on them as the president detailed the positive economic conditions for blacks in America, they looked angry. How could that be? Do they realize that if their constituents do well under Trump, they just might get out of the place white liberals desperately need them to stay in?

Indeed, if Sen. Chuck Schumer, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer represent the future of the Democratic Party, the future is angry and old. Pelosi, when not playing with her dentures, the Congressional Black Caucus and members of the media like to pretend that they are the reasonable ones in the room. They apply the veneer of judicious rationality in the face of Trump’s supposed irrational mania. And most Republicans are too terrified to defend Trump or point out the truly radical nature of Democrats’ far left view of America.

No greater illustration of this is what MSNBC’s Joy Reid, the left’s idea of intellectualism, tweeted after the president’s speech: “Church ... family ... police ... military ... the national anthem ... Trump trying to call on all the tropes of 1950s-era nationalism. The goal of this speech appears to be to force the normalization of Trump on the terms of the bygone era his supporters are nostalgic for.”

I’d say to Democrats, when church, family, police, military and the national anthem are nationalist tropes that you and your party are lining up against, you may want to switch parties. Thanks to Donald Trump, the Democrats have once again been exposed for who they truly are.
