It is not difficult to predict how someone will feel about this country and its President. It will depend on where they get their news. If its the NY Times or Washington Post, this link will encourage them.
What more could they ask for than that Obama is going to head up 30,000 protestors to resist whatever Trump might try to do. When Flynn resigned, those who cheered had been told what this meant long ago. What they weren't told is to be concerned that a permanent, professional, establishment government is doing what it can to block an elected government from making changes.
Once again, it will depend on where someone gets their news. What used to be considered mainstream news at one time felt its purpose was to find out what happened and who did it-- wherever the story took them. It has been awhile since that has been true-- if it ever was. Yellow journalism got us into the Spanish American War. Generally speaking the mainstream media has its own agenda-- and depending on the readers' agenda, that is okay or not.
When I recently saw the blatant bias of the big newspapers and cable news was during the campaign when they didn't cover Bernie events and ignored negative stories on Hillary. They covered Trump over the other Republicans but with negative stories. When I'd see a headline, it would take reading to the end of the story to realize it was misleading at the least and fraudulent at the worst.
After the election, the New York Times actually admitted what they had done; but when Trump continued to bash them, they gave up all pretense of covering the story as destroying his Presidency became the story. Buried deep in an article might be a sentence of actual fact not presumption. It will not be what many will remember.
Whether you are on the right or left will impact today how you see Trump doing. He ran on certain promises and he started right in fulfilling them. Since the left did not want to see those things done, they went into fight mode. There is no pretense of being fair because that's not what it's about. It's about making it look like Trump is a bumbling fool at best and a Hitler wantabe at worst.
The so-called chaos of Trump's cabinet relates to Congress blocking, for no other reason than they can, voting on his picks. Once cabinet heads are in place, they can get their staff. Block them from being in their place, and it's not the shadow government's fault. It's Trump's incompetency.
When he chose people outside of government with an interest in the departments he was going to put them over, the establishment went bonkers. But what did they think he intended to do? This was Mr. Smith goes to Washington (well, it's not Jimmy Stewart) with the intent to overturn the apple cart and put new ideas in place. It's not surprising that those already there (Congress and the bureaucrats) would not like this. Sabotage is the name of the game. For those who want the establishment to continue as it has been, who like the programs in place, who want globalization and mass immigration from any country in the world, who disagree with societal rules for others (unless it's their rules) are, of course, very upset.
When someone from the establishment, as I heard last night on a news program, says that Trump asked the Russians to hack Hillary's emails, those on the left are reassured. On the right, they are screaming at the television-- that was a one sentence, off-handed joke in a debate.
Whether the Russians were the ones who revealed Podesta's emails (thanks to him being fooled by one of those hackers), they never got hold of Hillary's deleted 30,000... or if they did, they didn't release them. The only things that came out of Podesta's reaffirmed what most knew already-- and many (like us) voted for her anyway based on issues.
Trump will do things I won't like. If he's truly mentally ill, as some claim, what is happening now will send him over the edge. Attacking his daughter's clothing line, he clearly loves his kids, worked to hurt her and him. Is that really what the left is all about now? Win at any cost and no matter who gets hurt.
What scares me about this all is I have no respect now for the right or the left. Who does that leave for me to cheer on? I used to think I had someone, but what Obama is doing isn't making me feel good. I already knew I'd not like a lot of what Trump would do (although getting a handle on unregulated immigration and deporting those who have broken our laws or joined gangs is not among them). I am frankly horrified at the concept of sanctuary cities where if the illegal entrant can get there, the city will protect them from the federal agents who come to arrest or deport them... seriously, this is what those who live in our cities want-- totally unregulated immigration? Some have become convinced it's their Christian duty, rather like those who fought against slavery-- except that was about those here legally-- not everyone who got through the door by overstaying their visa or being smuggled across a border.
Latest horror for the left to agonize and rant over was the supposed deportation of an innocent dreamer who it turns out was a member of one of the local gangs (he has since claimed he was coerced into admitting that (waterboarding?), but the officers say there was social media and maybe tattoo to say he was in a gang (i.e. drug cartel) with a father who had been the real target with felony and illegal entry (they did not arrest the other son-- maybe because he hadn't joined a gang). Seriously sanctuary cities want these drug cartels and why would that be? Something for lefties to consider maybe...
