Mystery of the loathing

Democrats, with some notable exceptions — people who are to be praised — do not just dislike President Trump. They do not just dislike him a lot, as I did President Obama. No, they absolutely loathe him with a burning fury.

What on earth is up with that? I truly do not understand it.

He did, after all, win the presidency fair and square.

I especially do not understand the loathing given that, from what I see, he’s one of the best presidents in American history. Lists of his numerous achievements are available online. I won’t repeat them here because it would fill too much space, but here are three links with the headlines of the lists. Many more are available online.

Probably best to do a search that’s not run by Google. I recommend DuckDuckGo.

One-hundred-twenty-give amazing accomplishments.

Trump Administration accomplishments.

And, in the interest of fairness, here’s, from Business Insider, a List of accomplishments and failures.

You will not find these accomplishments in the mainstream media. If you do encounter a reference to one or more, you will likely be told it is false. It is unlikely to be false. This denial of his accomplishments is part of the burning fury, of course.

Again, the burning fury mystifies me. Maybe some rational Democrat can explain it, politely, of course, which is a challenge for many of you. Don’t say he’s racist because there is no indication of that. There is lots of proof to the contrary. See photo below.

And now, Trump has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for negotiating the deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. He will not win, of course, due to the makeup of the committee that decides, the people who gave Obama the Peace Prize 10 minutes after his inauguration simply for being (half) black.

Obama’s winning the Peace Prize was political. Trump’s not winning is also political.

Much of the loathing has to do with Trump’s confrontational manner, but why is he at times confrontational? Is his brusque manner the chicken or the egg? If you pay attention to his grenade-tossing, you will note that it’s invariably a response to something. If you fire a slingshot at him, or even toss a rock, he will respond with a bazooka.

I find that appropriate and highly entertaining. He’s today’s Teddy Roosevelt.

But the list of his accomplishments is long and impressive.
