You Just Saw the Best Week in the Entire Trump Presidency—and we’re only two days into it! Dov Fischer writes at The American Spectator (abridged):
Tearing Up Over the State of the Union
Maybe President Trump’s State of the Union (SOTU) speech was his best speech ever. Maybe it was just one of his better Presidential moments. Certainly, the showmanship and drama was unequaled in American history. If the bat-crazy Democrat women thought they were impacting dramatically last year by all dressing white, they clearly lacked the imagination to understand that the bride does not wear white to two consecutive weddings. This year’s effort to dress uniformly like ghosts lacked drama and seemed to underscore so much about the Democrats: they lack imagination and cannot move forward. Even their own television networks — CBS, NBC, ABC, PBS, CNN, and MSNBC —did not focus on them. If orange is the new black, white is the old white.
The real drama came from two sources. First, the President and his team put together one tear-jerker of a show. First they tell you about the little Black girl who dreams of getting a decent education outside Philadelphia’s failed Democrat-run public schools. You feel so much for her, but you wonder where this is going. Then you meet her tearing-up Black mother who desperately wants this for her daughter. And then — Wow! — Trump picks the gift behind Curtain 3, and the kid gets the education of her dreams. Then they highlight the Boy of Color (Black? Hispanic?) from Arizona who dreams one day of being in the space program or the new U.S. Space Force. OK — cute, sweet. But where is this going? And then they shift over to the boy’s 100-year-old great-grandfather, one of the last surviving Tuskegee Air fighters. And all you can say, as you start tearing up is “Wow!”
And then Rush Limbaugh. A polarizing figure? But he bravely has made public that he is fighting a terrible disease, refusing to wilt, promising to be on air as long as he can, whenever he can in between treatments. And we all nod with gratitude to this great man. But then — Wow! — he is being conferred the Presidential Medal of Freedom … and — Wow! — right now, right in the middle of the SOTU. We all watched, teary-eyed, as Rush teared up. We all teared up. Next — the Mom and kids who have not seen their husband and dad through four tours of duty in a place like Afghanistan. And then — Wow! — the guy shows up and kisses the family. And everyone tears up. And the brother of the guy murdered by an illegal alien whom Sanctuary State California protected from ICE apprehension. And the parents of Kayla Mueller learning that the military dedicated the excision of ISIS rapist and terror leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in their daughter’s memory. They tear up — and so do we. And the wife and children whose husband and father never will return because Qassim Soleimani organized the IED roadside bombings in Iraq — until Trump gave the order to eliminate Soleimani from earth. So much drama. So much tearing up.
And the other one who tore up as the speech ended — Nancy Pelosi tearing up the text of that magnificent bipartisan speech that described a booming American economy, lowest-ever unemployment numbers, unprecedented advances in the economy and marketplace for Blacks, Latinos, Asians, women, and the handicapped. Pelosi tore up the text that spoke of the girl who wanted an education, the Black great-grandfather Tuskegee Airman who had fought in three wars, the widows who had lost their husbands fighting for freedom, the permanent federal funding for historically Black colleges. Watching Pelosi meticulously tear up that speech, in several portions because she lacks the arm strength to tear up more than a few pages at a time, brought home how great this week is for President Trump. On Monday the Democrats sabotage the integrity of the American Presidential electoral process, even as Gallup reports highest-ever approval ratings for Trump. On Tuesday the amazing “Wow! SOTU speech.” On Wednesday the Senate acquits Trump, throws out the Pelosi Stillborn Impeachment, and perhaps even a Joe Manchin or a Doug Jones defies Schumer and votes with the Republicans. What a week!
