……The biggest achievement President Trump made is getting Americans to shove the press back twice as hard. We do not have to live by their rules or curry their favor.Andrew Breitbart, the John the Baptist of today’s MAGA movement, said, “Politics is downstream of culture.”The media is the culture, which explains the importance of Donald Trump’s manhandling of the press. He did not duck them. He took them on. He could do a 25-minute impromptu press conference, answering 25 questions on 25 subjects, while his helicopter waited to take him to the airport for a flight to a rally far away after putting in a 10-hour day in the Oval Office.We saw him do it several times.In April 2011, a year before Breitbart died, he said, “Celebrity is everything in this country. And if these guys don’t learn how to play the media the way that Barack Obama played the media last election cycle and the way that Donald Trump is playing the election cycle, we’re going to probably get a celebrity candidate.”5 years after Breitbart said that, Republicans had their celebrity candidate. Donald Trump.He was not folksy like Ronald Reagan. Donald Trump was a loudmouth New Yorker. To survive in that city, you need the ability to be Dustin Hoffman in “Midnight Cowboy” pounding on the cab and saying, “Hey, I’m walking here. I’m walking here.”In retrospect, America needed a president pounding on that media cab. We needed him to do that to stop that cab from running over the rest of us.
We elected President Trump because he’s not a politician. He’s successful, exuberant, brash, confident, thinks outside the box, and goes against the grain of the Swamp status quo. He reversed the damage Barky Obama did to this country and accomplished more positive improvements to the economy, foreign policy, and national security during his term in office than all the previous White House occupants since Ronald Reagan.
He has the guts to take on the RINO establishment and the Dems.
Americans are sick of the DemProgs and their media hacks pounding away at the fabric of the Constitution, the law, and the country. We’re standing up to their threats and intimidation against citizens who demand they be held accountable.
