(Tea Party PAC) – It is truly amazing how the Democrat-media complex will criticize literally everything Trump ever does, even if they’re criticizing him for not doing the same thing five minutes earlier.
There is a meme going around that couldn’t be truer, which says “Trump should come out in favor of impeachment, so Democrats would be forced to oppose!” This is not only funny, but it’s also become true: Trump is now supporting an impeachment trial in the Senate, and Dems don’t know what to do!! Ha!
So it’s hilarious to take a look back at those five minutes ago when the press was criticizing Trump for meeting with foreign leaders “without preconditions,” even though they’re now falsely accusing him of establishing preconditions with a foreign leader…and trying to impeach him for it!
They can’t even keep up with their own lies.
Whether Russian President Vladimir Putin, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, or Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, the media insisted that Trump’s willingness without preconditions to meet was reckless. Many even suggested that he could not be trusted alone in a room with Putin. Congress wanted his translator to testify.
Of course, the media were delighted when then-Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) was asked if he would be “willing to meet separately, without precondition, during the first year of your administration, in Washington or anywhere else, with the leaders of Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea,” and answered in the affirmative. That was proof of his commitment to diplomacy, as opposed to the supposed warmongering of then-President George W. Bush.
But Trump, somehow, was not to be trusted.
The difference between Trump and Obama is that in Trump’s case, he has been willing to meet without preconditions after he has already taken an aggressive military or economic step. He slapped sanctions on Russia, armed Ukraine, and attacked Russia’s ally, Syria; he sanctioned North Korea and threatened Kim Jong-un with “fire and fury”; he imposed severe sanctions on Iran that are destroying its economy. In contrast, Obama abandoned missile defense against Russia and declined to give Ukraine military aid; did next to nothing about North Korea; and handed massive amounts of cash to Iran in exchange for a weak nuclear deal.
None of this matters, of course, because Orange Man Bad.
They continued to cite Trump’s willingness to meet without preconditions as evidence of his incompetence or even malice.
Then Ukrainegate happened.
Suddenly, however, when Trump allegedly imposed the mildest of preconditions on Ukraine for a White House visit — investigations of past election interference and specific cases of corruption — the media and the Democrats called it an impeachable offense. (It is not even clear there were preconditions for a meeting. Ambassador Gordon Sondland testified that they were; former Amb. Kurt Volker, a more credible witness, testified that they were not.)
In this case — as every single witness in the impeachment inquiry testified, without exception — President Trump has been a better friend to Ukraine than his predecessor, who would not send the military aid Trump provided.
And in the end, he agreed to meet the Ukrainian president in Warsaw and New York, without preconditions.
And here we are.
