I&I Editorial

The Democrats didn’t like President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address because he highlighted data, such as the strong economy and record employment under his watch, they’d rather voters didn’t know. But those points were just a start. There’s much more about Trump that his opponents want to hide from the public.

The Democrats have stayed true to their talking points, calling Trump a “monster,” a “white supremacist,” and a “dictator” at every opportunity. While campaigning in New Hampshire, Joe Biden said the president “doesn’t have a shred of decency in him.” Former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg wants to convince voters “this election is a decency check on this president.” Tom Steyer, who apparently didn’t wish to strain his vocabulary’s limits, simply says Trump is “a bad man.”

None of those charges would stick, though, if the electorate knew that:

  • In 1986, Trump helped stop the foreclosure of Annabel Hill’s family farm in Georgia. He contributed $39,000 toward the money she needed to pay off the mortgage.
  • Two years later, Trump sent his personal jet to fly 3-year-old Andrew Ten across the country for critical medical care after commercial airlines refused to allow his life-support system on board.
  • In 2000, Trump gave a “generous” check to the family of a young girl named Megan, who was suffering from Brittle Bone Disease. He saw her on the Maury Povich show and was moved.
  • Trump not only allowed actress Jennifer Hudson, who is black, and her family to stay free at his Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago after her mother and brother were murdered in 2008, he apparently increased security for them.
  • Three years before winning the presidency, Trump  gave a $10,000 check to bus driver Darnell Barton, who stopped a suicidal woman from jumping off an overpass in Buffalo.
  • A year later, Trump wrote a $25,000 check to retired Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, who had been in a Mexican jail for seven months. While carrying loaded weapons, he had made a wrong turn on a California freeway that forced him into the Tijuana port of entry with no way to turn back. Trump sent the money to help Tahmooressi “get back on his feet.”

These examples, which have been independently verified, were first compiled along with others at Townhall by Liz Crokin. As an entertainment journalist, Crokin “had the opportunity to cover Trump for over a decade,” and in all of those years, she “never heard anything negative about the man until he announced he was running for president.”

“Trump’s kindness knows no bounds and his generosity has and continues to touch the lives of people from every sex, race and religion,” she wrote. “When Trump sees someone in need, he wants to help.”

Of course Trump’s acts of kindness, wildly inconsistent with his public persona, aren’t predictive of a successful presidency. But they don’t fit the outlandish caricatures sketched out by his opponents, and are therefore dangerous to their agenda.

 

Trump’s personal generosity is also the complete opposite of the Democratic Party’s campaign to replace private benevolence with government programs funded by collectivist methods. Any hint of wealthy Americans voluntarily helping others has to be buried, as they are the host organisms in a parasitic arrangement. The Democrats’ political future depends on keeping voters as far away from facts as possible.

When not waging personal attacks, the Democrats have tried to convince voters that the economy is shambles, and that as the rich grow richer, the suffering of the poor increases. But just as the facts reveal Trump to be much less than a demon, the data show them to be liars. Earnings of the bottom 10 percent have grown 4.9% under Trump while they rose a mere 1.9% during the Obama presidency. Under this “racist” president, black Americans have thrived, their earnings up 3.8%, a stark contrast to the 1.8% growth under President Barack Obama.

Trump laid out a long list of his economic achievements in his State of the Union address, yet there’s actually more. As we noted here Tuesday, four days after the speech the Bureau of Labor Statistics told us the economy created 225,000 more jobs than expected in January. The BLS also announced average hourly wages grew 3.1% over a year ago, another mark that beat expectations. It was also the 18th straight month in which wages increased by at least 3%. 

These numbers are poison to Democrats’ efforts to beat Trump in November. And so is this non-economic data point: 

“Nine in 10 Americans are satisfied with the way things are going in their personal life,” says the Gallup organization, hitting “a new high” over a four-decade trend.

Ideally, presidents should have little impact on our personal lives. But if the trend continues through the spring, into the summer, and lasts until fall, voters are not going to be in any mood to change presidents. If things are going well for them, why should they? History shows they took out their frustrations on President Jimmy Carter, who lost in a landslide to Ronald Reagan 16 months after he made his “malaise speech,” which didn’t leave Americans feeling good about themselves.

Democrats know that the more voters learn about Trump, the slimmer their chances are in 2020. There’s a reason they look so desperate.

They are arguing about whether to say the economy isn't as strong as it appears or say the strong economy is thanks to Obama. Get ready for some really dysfunctional mixed messaging. They are going to take talk of impeachment off the table because it continues to hurt Joe Biden.

It is a fact that the economy started picking up long before Trump was elected.

Corrupt, creepy, clown biden is already history. The talk of a phony impeachment has already hurt the dim-0-craps. If it turns out to be the "bern", Trump will destroy him or anybody else they run against Trump for that matter.  That is a cold hard fact that is going to be a bitter pill for the butt hurt moonbats here on NHB to swallow.

Of course the dim-0-craps want to hide and lie about everything good about Trump, but NOT mentioned in the article is the FACT that the totally crooked so-called lapdog, enemy of the people, lying leftist media are doing 99% of the cover-ups. Cruise around ANY ''mainstream'' news site or channel and try and find ONE article praising the president or his policies of success and you'll find you've wasted 3 or 4 hours of your life. The media is truly the Enemy of American people and the clowns and communists running against President Trump are flat-out NUTS.

 

Positive facts that have been carefully hidden by the media. Trump is a good man, better than any of the current crop of crooked clown dim-0-craps and that is why they are failing and stand no chance in Nov. LOL!!!

Thing is, People will lie for Trump since he set the bar so low.  If Trump did half of those things you listed, I'm confident he'd be bragging about it every chance he had.

It is the dim-0-craps and their lapdog, enemy of the people, lying, leftist media that lies. If the economy is not doing good it is Trump's fault...If the economy is doing good then it was his oliness' doing. Which confuses the hell out of idiot moonbats, like you, buckwheat. 

Trump has set the bar way too high for the deep state, his oliness' holdovers, swamp bureauweenies. That is why he is getting rid of the traitors. Your just still butt hurt that your many titted empress couldn't even cheat her way into the White House.

Sure. Trillions in bank bailouts, stimulus spending, and quantitative easing sure helped. Don't think Obama got our money's worth. 

What do you mean? His oliness was rewarded handsomely for his largesse with the taxpayers' money while the middle class got screwed.

Yeah it "started picking up long before Trump". Well when you start in a big hole it is easy to "START picking up". Slowest rate of recovery from a recession EVER by Obama.

 

Also, I asked phoenix in another thread: At what point does Obama cease to get credit for the CURRENT economy? I mean, we are 3+ years into this administration.

I see the hyperbole, but I don't see the facts.  Trump has set the bar for debate so low.

You overlooked how Obama put the brakes on a massive spending deficit, He couldn't stop it but he certainly reduced our grandkids debt.   Trump on the other hand...

He is trying to be fair to whomever the dim-0-craps nominate. That said, he will destroy whomever that may turn out to be. You can mark that down and come back to it when Trump wins in Nov. LOL!!!

Why do you Dems always buy into the Propaganda your fed?

The Dems have only two strateglies left heading into November.....

 

Keep falsely promoting that Trump is a criminal and the anti-Christ. ....

And falsely promoting that the state of the economy is because of Obama .....

While both strategies are now gas lighting people like you. ..

The minute your presidential candidate whom ever that may be steps on stage to debate Trump and his economy in front of the whole nation .....

Both strategies become a case study in absolute impotence. ...

If the economy would have tanked under Trump as some predicted he would have gotten all the blame. Since he faced that potential consequence it's only fair to give him all the credit. Democrats can't have it both ways.

Without Obama, the deficit would have spiked at 30 billion.  Obama was able to bring to it 20 billion.  Under Trump, Its hitting the Trillion Mark.

More lies.

 

The  GOP stopped Obama's spending when they took the  House two years into his regime and kept it the entire  time  he was  President.

 

You are a   liar.

 

Everyone  knows it too

What I know is that Trump tried to enlist a foreign government to embarrass a political opponent and was spanked for it.  That's not being fair. 

So, in your world.... 

Being a political opponent excuses you from being investigated....?

Even though Joe admitted to quid pro quo regarding Burisma and Hunter in front of a live audience and while being taped?

And why all of a sudden are you so concerned with fairness...?

The Dems haven't practiced an ounce of fairness since Trump became President .....

And neither has their media .....
