Trump’s Immodesty Unnerves those with Fake Humility

KarenKataline.comIn another stellar campaign rally, this one in Toledo, Ohio, President Donald Trump reminded the crowd that he donates his Presidential salary back to U.S. government agencies.  “Don’t I deserve credit for that?” he asked.

Such an honest and open request for “credit” isn’t very “statesmanlike” is it?

From the moment he entered politics, Donald Trump has never deviated from being exactly who he is and someone who America has never seen before as President of the United States.

What’s more, by any fair, objective standard, Trump has been wildly successful first at winning the Presidency against all odds, and then doing exactly what he set out to do in office.  One could argue that his opponents have also been successful at not doing exactly what they have not wanted to do:  secure America’s borders, decrease our dependence on foreign oil, lower the unemployment rate,  protect American citizens and American sovereignty, etc.  The difference is that now we know that they never wanted to do those things in the first place. Guess who exposed them?After almost four years, some have gotten more used to his “this-is-who-I-am-warts-and-all” style. Some, like myself, have found it downright refreshing compared to the steady diet of air-brushed politicians who have spent thousands on media training so they could appear genuine.

Just because his opponents cannot bear the exposure of their true intentions and massive corruption doesn’t make the extraordinary success of Trump any less impressive.  In fact, this is one of the reasons they have pushed their false narratives so relentlessly. The real narrative is just too threatening.

Like most things Trump, the irrational hatred that has been directed at him has only helped him and he knows it.  It’s one of the reasons he’s surprisingly patient. He lets them hang themselves with their false accusations and just like the transcript he released of his phone call with Ukrainian President Zelensky, he exposes them as the liars they always were.

Still, they don’t get it and we’re very glad of that. The same old Trump-haters wasted no time blaming him for the downing of the Ukrainian plane by Iran. They also blame him for hurricanes, weight gain and the ugly anti-Semitism of which they themselves are so guilty.

Trump’s willingness to take whatever they throw at him is one of his extraordinary gifts. He has given a master class to millions of Republicans and Conservatives on how to fight back against the ever-accusatory, hateful, and unhinged Left.

  1. Great article, thank you! I’ve watched DJT for 40 yrs, he has ALWAYS been himself, warts and all and he always tells the truth! I love him, he’s completely the opposite of our spit=polished, trained, smooth talking pols, wish more were like him.

  2. Force Recon Marine

    It never ceases to amaze me that all those pathetic losers in their feeble and vain attempt to make themselves feel good about their pathetic existence always revert pejorative labeling and denigration of those who are successful. It is obvious they believe by doing so as if somehow by magic all their fears and frustration of being pathetic losers will magically disappear. News flash snowflakes, it ain’t gonna happen!!!

    Everyone (but our LIEberal “friends”) knows nothing will ever change with that attitude, but like all typical lieberal losers, these clowns continue to do the same things over and over hoping for different results. You should know but obviously don’t, if one always do what one has always done one will always get what one always got!!!

    Our LIEberal snowflake “friends” have had the same opportunities to succeed that others who were born in America had. However they decided to squander those opportunities with the attitude that they are OWED. Another News Flash no one OWES you anything!!!

    There is nothing wrong with being immodest (egotistical) regarding ones success. No one has attained success without tenacity motivation sacrifice and hard work, no one!! I have found that success never comes to look for you while you wait around. One has to get up and work at making their dreams come true.

    Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. I took those risks and made those sacrifices my LIEberal snowflake “friends” would never consider doing, and that is why they are failures!!!

    Failure is easy to attain all one need to do become a failure is do nothing. Michelangelo once said “The greatest danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it.” You my LIEberal snowflake “friends” have yet to set ANY goals!!!

    Most people like my LIEberal snowflake “friends” who are failures in life miss opportunity because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work. Hard work without talent is a shame, but talent without hard work is a tragedy

    So since our LIEberal snowflake “friends” like to denigrate/malign my and others success I feel obligated to inform you that I have never accomplished anything of tangible value or acquired what I have by accident.

    No one gave me a thing I had to work for what I have. It’s time for you to stop the excuses and MAN UP and take personal responsibility and why you would want to continue your desire to flaunt your being a miserable failure is a mystery for the ages

    As I stated earlier No one gave me a thing. What I have I earned on my own, and unlike my LIEberal snowflake “friends” I didn’t sit on my ass waiting for the government to make me rich!!! The reason you snowflakes are envious is because you settled for less while I didn’t!!!
