Barely a week and a half into Trump's administration, and the left is in sheer panic mode. This isn't good for the country. If you think Trump is Hitler, you're more likely to endorse violence against him, which is precisely what leftists have begun doing.
The left tried to run on the War on Women in 2016 and lost. Now they're doubling down. But apparently, so long as they can pat themselves on the back for their unearned moral superiority, they'll be happy.
Do most Americans believe that Donald Trump is a vicious racist, an illegitimate president who must be treated with scorn and disdain? Of course not. Yet the left continues to double down on fiction instead of banking on fact.
We can all cheer news that more companies want to invest in the United States. But we should not fall prey to the misconception that the president ought to act as a benevolent economic dictator, bestowing favor upon all those who please him.
