– And, No, it has nothing to do with his hair.

On June 16th, real estate mogul and celebrity businessman Donald Trump threw his hat into the ring as a candidate for president of the United States. This immediately set liberals into a frenzy and the inevitable jokes about his hair and some of his comments became the butt of jokes. Even the television talking heads snickered at his announcement and dismissed his chances for success. The levity was short lived though as the polls in New Hampshire suddenly showed Trump surging in the state.

The left claims Mr. Trump’s announcement was nothing more than an obnoxious publicity stunt, and characterized him as a buffoon who shouldn’t be taken seriously. Hardly. Trump is the one candidate the left is most afraid of, and for good reason; he is a serious contender, well financed, and represents the polar opposite of the left.

In the coming campaign, liberals will portray Trump as politically incorrect. Maybe, but he is more results oriented and less concerned with making a faux pas, something very appealing to voters frustrated with the gridlock in Washington. Others will portray him as an icon of big business and “trickle-down” economics. The fact remains, Trump has created thousands of jobs for people due to his entrepreneurship. He is admittedly pro-life and anti-gun control, two areas the left despise. Yet, he is a philanthropist and has donated generously to a variety of charities. Bottom-line, he is a confirmed capitalist who understands the value of work and, as such, represents a deterrent to the socialist agenda. The left’s visceral attacks on him suggest they are not only scared of him, but are jealous of his success as well.

Where liberals miss the mark is underestimating the public’s frustration and lack of confidence in our government today. According to a recent Rasmussen poll (June 22, 2015), only 28% of Americans believe the country is heading in the right direction. Likewise, a recent Gallup Poll (June 23, 2015) lists U.S. economic confidence at -9.

Taking note of the success of the fiery speech made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu last March before a special joint meeting of Congress, Trump is taking on the roll of a tough-talking, no-nonsense New Yorker. Recognizing America wants a fighter without the usual political spin, he is quickly becoming the voice of the people who are sick of the status quo in Washington and do not trust political elites such as Mrs. Clinton. He may not be the most eloquent orator, but he is going to tell it as he sees it, which is rather refreshing to voters. During his campaign announcement, Trump told the audience several things they could identify with, such as:

“Our country is in trouble.”
“America has become the dumping ground for the world’s problems”
“We have all the cards, but we don’t know how to play them.”
“We are going to make our country great again.”

Such messages resonate with voters as they realize the country is following the wrong path.

Donald Trump is hitting a nerve with voters, not just in New Hampshire but across the country. This explains why the left will go to any length to assassinate his character. They will try to discredit his every move and word, even going so far as to intentionally misquote him. Unlike most of his GOP competitors, Mr. Trump is not a politician (neither is Dr. Ben Carson), but a businessman who understands the world, people, negotiations, and what is necessary to succeed. This means his rhetoric will be noticeably different than the other candidates.

Does Mr. Trump possess a huge ego? What politician or successful businessman doesn’t? Frankly, I am more interested in results.

Liberals and the press giggled when Trump announced he would build a wall along our southern border and have Mexico pay for it. They thought it was hysterical. However, let’s suppose Trump pulled it off, as he has done with other ventures people scoffed at, who would be doing the laughing then? Again, this is the difference between a businessman and a politician. We’ve tried a community organizer, oil men, a peanut farmer and professional politicians, all with minimal success; voters may very well be ready to give a successful businessman a chance.

Do not expect Trump to take liberal criticisms sitting down. He appears to be willing to fight back as he has both the disposition and financial resources to do so. Next time you hear a joke about his hair, just remember it is an attempt to conceal the liberal agenda. If that is all the left has, Trump will only gain momentum.

Keep the Faith!

  3. Tim, excellent points here. But the Republicans don’t seem to like him either. Probably because he scares them too. My point on Trump is if anyone thinks by calling him names or ridiculing him they will make him drop out of the race, they need some medication. Trump like his father is a New York City Landlord and he’s been called every name in the book since he can’t remember when he wasn’t. Having been in the New York City Housing scene, let me tell you, you get inured to all of that PDQ or you go do something else for a living.

    I’m not saying I’m going to vote for him as yet. There’s a long way to go but I get a real kick out of his campaign and him. Yes, he’s politically incorrect but that’s just what the country needs. He’s great copy too. I think I’ve used him at least three times in my articles.

      Don – The name calling is a desperate attempt by candidates such as Perry and Graham who are hanging on Trump’s coattails for publicity. No, I do not believe Trump will run as an independent. Both Trump and the GOP know they cannot beat the Democrats if they split the party. I see this as saber rattling by Trump telling the GOP, “Don’t mess with me.”
      All the Best,

    “This is an overall good assessment of Trump. He is a businessman and we are in desperate need of jobs in America. Ben Carson is a physician, specifically a neurosurgeon (a doctor who heals the head or brain), and much of America is sick– sick in the head. We need these men. Even if neither of these men become president or vice president, we need them. Perhaps Trump would be crucial in Commerce or Treasury and Carson as Health & Human Resources or Surgeon General.”

    “What Trump will not allow is another four or eight years of socialist liberalism so he will not split the vote if it comes down to that. Probably. The GOP had better listen to him, his rising popularity and lack of impact of every other candidate as an object lesson in what America wants. We don’t want “immigration reform” as amnesty to those here and a propped open door for any more who want to come in. We don’t want our military so besieged from our enemies and from our own administration that they are now being shot dead in our own country by an organization allowed to grow and prosper by Obama. We don’t want a government used to selectively oppress political opponents.”

    Right on the money once again, Tim! The attempts at character assassination have begun with Trump’s former wife making accusations of “rape” against him. There is to bottom to the low that the Left will engage to kill off the things that they fear the most. One only has to look at Bill Clinton and all the accusation of molestation etc. to wonder why the Left can shrug its shoulders and claim that those are all lies but are more than willing to believe anything about Trump. Bill Cosby was a contrasting leader for young black men encouraging them to pull themselves up and make their world better rather than let the government shape their lives–his character was ripped with claims that are four decades old and impossible to defend against yet those on the Left swallow them as the truth. This is how we got here–low information types believing absolute BS and they still do. Hopefully, the silent majority of this country will unite behind a candidate such as Trump and save the destruction of our culture. In that process, the Republican Party might want to up their anxiety as there are enough frustrated Americans to shape up a good size third party out there–it’s not longer about splinters like back in the days of Perot. ~WB

    “You have stated with clarity the reality of Trump as a serious contender. My current plan is to vote for Dr. Ben Carson. Trump has also struck a chord that I – and many (most?) – feel strongly about: we hate the lack of career politicians to get done the things that matter most including build a wall, make the US respected by showing our awesomeness and strength. I am sick of the status quo represented by Clinton, Bush, Romney, and the leadership of the Senate/House.”
