The other day, my son Seth, a stalwart conservative in the Marxist swamp of Beverly Hills, posted his thoughts on Facebook. They were picked up by American Thinker and featured in their Blog section. Since then, his piece has gone viral.
Some nasty anti-president quotes to offer perspective
By Seth Swirsky
Here are just a few choice quotes leveled at the president (read to the end):
“The president has continued during the last week to make a fool of himself and to mortify and shame the intelligent people of this great nation.”
“He is evidently a person of very inferior character.”
“The president is a fungus from the corrupt womb of bigotry and fanaticism, a worse tyrant than has existed since the days of Nero.”
“Those who vote for the president’s re-election are traitors.”
“He is universally an admitted failure, has no will, no courage, no executive capacity.”
“There is a strong feeling among those who have seen the president, in the way of business, that he lacks practical talent for the job. It is thought that there should be more readiness.”
Yes. These nasty things were said about President…Lincoln. By Democrats and “NeverLincolns” of their day. All while he won the Civil War and ended slavery.
So keep fighting, President Trump. While your opponents try everything they can to demean, demoralize, and depose you, the decent people of this country appreciate your tireless efforts in giving us this great economy, a stronger military, better trade deals, and a restored sense of America’s true greatness.
