Objective Observation- Trump had a Bad Day!

in informationwar •  7 months ago


As an Objective Trump Supporter, I acknowledge that today's press conference with Trump and Putin was not a shining moment for President Trump. He had a really bad day!

From my perspective, in his pursuit to defend the legitimacy of his Presidency, he placed his own ego at the forefront of the conversation. He took the bait that the Leftist MSM was feeding, and unfortunately provided the MSM and Establishment with just enough ammo to take up another couple of news cycles.

This was not necessary. President Trump does not need to defend his legitimacy to this group of MSM Never Trumpers and Establishment Leaders that will NEVER accept this man as the duly elected President. There is nothing he can do to sway their opinion. And reasonable people (voters) understand this and have observed this MSM and Establishment Behavior for the past 2 years, and they understand this. The MSM and Establishment's outrageous behavior has actually helped grow his base.

He could have handled this press conference in a much more effective fashion. A majority of Americans understand by now that there was no collusion and they also understand that Russia Meddling did not change the outcome of the 2016 election. There was no need for him to harp on this during this press conference.

In my opinion, he could have just stated that while Putin, as expected, insistent that this did not occur, the American Intelligence Community believes otherwise. And it is up to the U.S. to ensure that there are sufficient safeguards in place to prevent any foreign influence from meddling in U.S. Elections. Further, it is up to the U.S. to ensure that their Intelligence Agencies operate with the Highest Level of Integrity at ALL LEVELS, which this investigation has proven they have not always operated.

I understand that it is easy for me to play armchair quarterback on this and sit from the sidelines and offer criticism. After all, I am not the subject of a slanted investigation based on lies and bias. And my friends and coworkers are not the targets for the MSM and Establishment to destroy.

Regardless of how the MSM and Establishment spin today's events, I believe that it will do very little to sway the supporters of President Trump. Especially when you consider the alternatives that could have been elected to this office.
