Commenting on Donald Trump's action as President is like drinking from a fire hose. He signed his first Executive Order moments after sitting his butt down behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office. This is a hard man to keep up with.
Which of Trump's moves are the drive-by media trying to machine gun?
I: THE ORDER TO INVESTIGATE VOTER FRAUD
This is driving the Democrats and their factotums in the media nuts. The Democrats have been making dead people vote for more than a century. This is why Republicans have been pushing for a photo ID law. With photo ID in effect, no longer will Democrats be able to hire some wino or Juan Valdez illegal to vote in the name of some corpse.
Recently, the subtitle on a discussion about this on CNN read: DOES TRUMP'S DISREGARD FOR THE TRUTH RENDER HIM UNFIT FOR THE PRESIDENCY?
The main Democrat talking point on this is that there IS NO VOTER FRAUD; that when voter fraud has been detected it has been dealt with before any bogus votes were cast; and so the system works and isn't broke and so there is no need to fix it. Also, Republican attempts to require photo ID are "voter suppression" because they require people to inconvenience themselves to acquire a photo ID, which (if you take what they are saying at face value) African American people in particular are too stupid to do. So requiring photo ID is - what else? - RACIST.
Actually, saying there is no voter fraud because only a few cases have been detected and in those cases bogus votes were not cast is like saying there is no shoplifting - never mind evidence of inventory shrinkage at every store and shop in town - because only a couple of people have been caught by store detectives and the merchandise was returned to inventory.
Actually it is entirely possible that - as Trump alleges - several million illegal votes were cast in the Democrat column. Trump is not "disregarding" the truth. He is determined to get at it, and the Democrat machine is terrified at the prospect that he will.
II: DETENTION AND REVIEW OF MOSLEM REFUGEES FROM TERRORIST ZONES.
In order that we admit no more radical extremist Islamicist terrorists to these United States, Trump has prohibited refugees from certain areas identified as hotbeds of Islamic jihadis from travelling to the United States unless they have been very thoroughly checked out. He has NOT prohibited Moslems in general from entering the USA. However, several groups of Moslems were enroute to the U.S. when the order was issued. Groups of these are being detained at various points of entry, and the Left has organized rent-a-mobs to demonstrate loudly and obnoxiously at all these places. Someone needs to tell these people that the days of getting your way by throwing a hissy fit by mob are OVER. President Trump is not about to let a bunch of disorderly people get in the way of protecting our Nation.
As usual, the Democrats and their allies on the extremist Left are focusing on these two points with lies and half truths. But they are dealing with a man - a real man and not a man-child - whom they spent 18 months trying to destroy using tactics that have worked every time. Until now, that is.
President Trump is NOT going to be golfing the next time something happens, or if he is, he's not going to make some mealy mouthed statement to the press and then finish his game. Trump is a businessman. And he means business. And you lefties better keep that in mind. Because HIS mind is on the job. Thank God we have a President after eight long years.
