“I never gave anybody hell! I just told the truth and they thought it was hell.” — Harry S. Truman
Sound familiar? I can imagine President Trump saying something just like this comment by Harry Truman. Truman was outspoken and direct, and the impression I have is that he didn’t suffer fools. President Trump, once he has figured out where a person stands, is not afraid to speak his mind and call him out.
Although the Left, like a mindless drone, continues to call out Trump for his impolitic behavior, I’m becoming convinced that his statements need to be heard. Like many people, I frequently cringe at his poor timing, rudeness and personal attacks. But who else would have been willing to muck out the swamp? Who would have been willing to call out the mainstream media on their over-the-top bias? Was there a polite way to move the Conservative agenda forward? Do you think the Democrats would have been more cooperative if another Republican had been elected?
I don’t think so.
