“So tonight, I am extending an open hand to work with members of both parties — Democrats and Republicans — to protect our citizens of every background, color, religion, and creed. My duty, and the sacred duty of every elected official in this chamber, is to defend Americans — to protect their safety, their families, their communities, and their right to the American Dream. Because Americans are dreamers too.” President Donald Trump
Unity was a key focus point in President Donald Trump’s State Of The Union Address on January 30th. He offered compromises and solutions to major divides between the Democratic and Republican parties, reasonable offers that met concerns and needs of both sides. The Republicans behind Trump are more than willing to work WITH the Democrats for the betterment of America lets take a look at Leftist Democratic responses to see if they’re willing to do the same.
#1 The Twisted Responses
“We stand with working people, not Wall Street. We need an infrastructure plan to create millions of jobs, not corporate wealth.” Tweeted celebrity movie star Mark Ruffalo. Apparently he didn’t hear the part of Trump’s speech where he talked about the 2.4 million jobs his administration helped to create in the past year… or the part where it was revealed that African-American and Hispanic unemployment rates are at their lowest in recorded American history.
“My vision for America is one in which everyone is welcomed, regardless of religion, race, or country of origin. It’s people who make America great, not bigoted policies.” Another tweet, this one courtesy of celebrity Ashley Judd. She also seemed to have tuned out vital points of Trump’s speech, such as his own remark about the people of America making it great, and his plans to help deliver the Dreamers to citizenship and make immigration safer for Americans AND immigrants.
“America isn’t stronger when Donald Trump tries to rip health care away from millions of Americans. Our future isn’t stronger when he gives away gigantic tax breaks to billionaires and giant corporations so there’s no money for education, infrastructure and the tools we need to succeed.” Senator Elizabeth Warren
“Donald Trump’s presidency has been a series of broken promises to the middle class and workers, a fact which tonight’s address did not change,” Senator Bob Casey
Politicians such as Elizabeth Warren and Bob Casey are ignoring the huge financial benefits that American citizens of ALL classes are reaping thanks to the tax cut, they’re ignoring the millions of new jobs, and they’re ignoring the rising economic wealth. Instead, they are twisting the accomplishments of the Trump Administration for the American people into a gruesome picture of tyranny, a picture which many people unfortunately believe.
Leftists are proving themselves to be so blinded by their hatred of Donald Trump that they cannot acknowledge or grasp the facts presented to them. They instead continue to produce lies, publish twisted versions of reality, and preach fear.
#2 The Denial Responses
Many celebrities and politicians refused to even watch the State Of The Union Address, tweeting out statements such as #ImNotWatching, RT If You’re Not Watching, etc.
These Leftist Democrats are so overwhelmed by their ungrounded hatred for anything involving Donald Trump, they discard their love for America, and their care for what’s going on in their country. Hate over love is unfortunately a typical fallback response for the Left, and their reactions to Trump’s State Of The Union Address only continue to prove it.
The Democratic politicians present at the State Of The Union Address refused to applaud even the best of announcements. “It was stunning to watch Washington Democrats sit there stone-faced and refuse to applaud more jobs, higher wages, jobs coming back to America,” said Texas Senator Ted Cruz.
These Leftists still seem to be in denial that Donald Trump is our President, and that he’s doing an extraordinary job.
#3 The Tantrum Responses
The most classic liberal responses are the ones delivered through weeping and gnashing of teeth. They seem to imply that the world as we know it is ending due to the sheer evil of monsters like Donald Trump, and… well, Republicans in general.
The most prominent reaction is that of Joe Kennedy, who delivered the official Democratic response to the State Of The Union Address. “Their record is a rebuke of our highest American ideal: the belief that we are all worthy, we are all equal and we all count,” He said of the Trump administration. He spoke of “hatred and supremacy” running rampant through American streets, accused the Trump administration of “rolling back civil rights by the day,” and eventually switched to Spanish to reassure all illegal immigrant viewers that the Democrats are “fighting for them.” (And their votes)
Many Leftist Trump-haters resorted to emotional rantings to tug at the heartstrings of their fellow Democrats, ignoring the real facts to present their own fake news.
No one is surprised by the responses from the Left. They have been standard responses to Republican success for decades, and they are the responses and speeches and actions that caused Americans to desire more. Americans grew tired of the lies and the fact-deficient emotion, and so they sought out a new leader, someone who would affect change FOR them and not against them. And the American People chose Donald Trump to be that leader.
It is the American citizens who have defied the leftist hate and sought to restore greatness to the land they call home. President Trump summed up the spirit of Americans in one powerful statement:
“Over the last year, the world has seen what we always knew: that no people on Earth are so fearless, or daring, or determined as Americans. If there is a mountain, we climb it. If there is a frontier, we cross it. If there is a challenge, we tame it. If there is an opportunity, we seize it.”
And we know that despite the reactions of the Left, we will not be deterred from our patriotism, and we will not surrender our motto In God We Trust.
God Bless America.
