Donald Trump is the Left’s Favorite Scapegoat
Ever since Donald Trump won the presidential election in November 2016, Democrats and the liberal media have been blaming him for everything.
In recent months, Democrats have blamed Trump for:
- Global unrest
- Americans’ drinking habits
- Layoffs by Ford
- Rising Obamacare premiums
- Future violence caused by 3D-printed guns
- Suicide rates in Puerto Rico
In September, the editorial board of The Washington Post said Trump was “complicit” for Hurricane Florence based on his views about climate change.
Honestly, I’m surprised there hasn’t been a study linking Trump’s tweets to global warming.
Last week, Vanity Fair correspondent and MSNBC contributor Gabriel Sherman blamed Trump when an elderly man bumped into his young daughter.
“Trump’s America is a vicious and divided place. Today, a 60-something man walked into my 15-month old daughter, knocking her to the ground with a bloody nose,” tweeted Sherman.
“Trump has allowed people – especially rich white people – to exhibit the worst kind of victimhood and lack of empathy,” continued Sherman, who by the way is rich and white.
Another recent example is New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez’s claim that Trump has failed to nominate candidates for important diplomatic posts.
President Trump’s “inability to adequately or appropriately fill key national security positions puts our nation at risk,” complained Menendez last week.
In reality, Trump’s nominees are being held up by Senate Democrats.
“There are more than 60 State Department nominees awaiting confirmation,” pointed out Sec. of State Mike Pompeo last Wednesday. One of those is Kimberly Breier, who has been waiting seven months for a vote to confirm her as Assistant Secretary of State for Western Hemisphere affairs – a key position which would have her overseeing America’s response to the crisis in Venezuela, to Colombia’s cocaine problem, and to Russia and China’s growing influence in Central and South America.
There are also 49 ambassadorial nominees awaiting confirmation – only one of which is being stalled by Republicans.
