The media hysterically demands that all Americans care about certain things. For Normals, though, these are the things about which you still don’t care.
The anti-Trump media desperately wants me (and you, my fellow Normals) to care about a specific set of “very important things.” Because the media is hysterical, ill-informed, biased, unaccomplished, immoral and amoral, it has failed in this mission. I don’t care. I don’t care about any of these things:
I don’t care whether President Donald Trump slept with porn stars. When campaigning, Trump did not engage in the usual politician’s pretense of purity. He’s on his third wife (with each one more beautiful than the last), he hung around famously salacious nightclubs in the 1970s and 1980s, he owned beauty pagents — we know that this is a guy that likes to indulge in female company, in both public and private. That’s none of my business because Trump didn’t make it my business.
Trump ran on a very narrow platform, telling Americans the following: I am an extremely experienced and successful businessman, and a true patriot. I will make America stronger and safer by shrinking government’s presence in American life (which includes doing away with the federal government’s meddling in social issues such as abortion, transgenderism, etc.), except when it comes to illegal immigration and national security. As to those last two, I will strengthen America’s presence. So far, Trump has been keeping his campaign promises and that’s good enough for me.
The only caveat regarding my sense that other Normals agree with me on these things is that I suspect there’s a sizable subset of Normal men who, if they could see Trump in person, would high-five or fist-bump him for his porn star liaisons.
I don’t care whether President Trump was good in bed when he slept with porn stars. Yes, the media is trying to make Trump’s sexual prowess with porn stars (Stormy Daniels, in particular) an issue. Again, I don’t care. Whether Trump is a dud or a stud in bed, the only thing that matters to me is that he keep his campaign promises — which, as I mentioned above, he’s doing.
I don’t care that President Trump’s dietary and lifestyle habits don’t qualify him for Healthy Living awards. The media is utterly outraged that Trump passed his physical with flying colors. The drones are attacking his unhealthy diet, challenging his weight (as many have quipped, turning the media horde into “Girthers”), and declaring that, despite perfect cognitive function, Trump is still mentally defective.
All I care about is that he keep his campaign promises. If he keeps them while dining on burgers or cat food, I don’t care. If he keeps them while watching some stultifyingly Leftist HBO or PBS documentary or while watching Keeping Up With the Kardashians, I don’t care. I care only that he’s shrinking government, securing the border, and increasing national security. [Read more…]
