The Capitalist that saved America … From Victor Davis Hanson, writing in National Review:
“Donald Trump continues to baffle. Never Trump Republicans still struggle to square the circle of quietly agreeing so far with most of his policies, as they loudly insist that his record is already nullified by its supposedly odious author. Or surely it soon will be discredited by the next Trumpian outrage. Or his successes belong to congressional and Cabinet members, while his failures are all his own. Rarely do they seriously reflect on what otherwise over the last year might have been the trajectory of a Clinton administration. Contrary to popular supposition, the Left loathes Trump not just for what he has done. (It is often too consumed with fury to calibrate carefully the particulars of the Trump agenda.) Rather, it despises him mostly for what he superficially represents.
“In short Trump’s very essence wars with everything that long ago was proven to be noble, just, and correct by Vanity Fair, NPR, The New Yorker, Google, the Upper West Side, and The Daily Show. There is not even a smidgeon of a concession that some of Trump’s policies might offer tens of thousands of forgotten inner-city youth good jobs or revitalize a dead and written-off town in the Midwest, or make the petroleum of the war-torn Persian Gulf strategically irrelevant to an oil-rich United States.
“Yet one way of understanding Trump — particularly the momentum of his first year — is through recollection of the last eight years of the Obama administration. In reductionist terms, Trump is the un-Obama. [end]
To continue with a wonderful VDH masterpiece on the Capitalist, there’s a link at the end to his full National Review article, but in the meantime, I want to segue` into the latest Joe Dan Gorman’s Intellectual Froglegs, a step you might well ask as to ‘what intent?’
The plain fact of the matter is that Joe Dan Gorman and his Intellectual Froglegs, is without doubt, the most entertaining show in all of interwebland, and is a perfect forum for revealing Donald Trump as the Capitalist. The only thing yours truly enjoys watching more than Intellectual Froglegs is Press Secy. Sarah Huckabee Sanders eviscerating the media every day, which she does completely professionally and always with an innocent smile on her face. Come think of it, a pleasing smile from a Capitalist supporter!
Everything covered by VDH in his composition is also surprisingly covered in “The Capitalist that saved America”, which is the title of Gorman’s piece. Video-wise, moreover, there is a huge element of entertainment, as well as pure fact.
As for Joe Dan himself, what’s to say? – Like Trump a total badass Capitalist with the shirt to prove it! Thus far, in my humble opinion, this is the Best Intellectual Froglegs EVER! Of course, I tend to say that each and every time as it seems like each one progressively tops the previous one before it (oops! ‘conservatively’ tops the previous one – sorry!)
