Donald Trump is not an ideological conservative. When Trump speaks, he is speaking from the heart and not from political conviction. He’s a practical person who makes things work and has no time for politics or political posturing.
Following the Charlottesville demonstration and the terrible loss of life there, he issued a very appropriate statement in which he condemned the killer and the demonstration organizers for their philosophy and motives.
Then, per the plan, leftists said that he wasn’t sincere in his statement because he didn’t use the politically correct words and the leftist-acceptable phrases in his initial statement. But it doesn’t matter what Trump says nor how and when he says it, liberals will always criticize him and claim that he should have said something else, and, as in the case of Charlottesville, they’ll blame him for both the demonstration and any negative result that comes from it.
Although we expect the radical, Trump-hating left to object to Trump’s words, when the likes of Glenn Beck criticize Trump for not using the correct, left-approved words to express his dismay and shock at the violence and loss of life, the criticism has gone too far.
Don’t people like Beck, who generally agree with Trump and his political and economic objectives, realize that they play into the radical left’s hands by attacking Trump, and for not praising the heartfelt words Trump uttered soon after the event? Beck and all other Republicans should tell the leftists to stuff their politically motivated demands in their Elizabeth Warren peace-pipes and smoke them.
