The perpetually angry American Left no doubt believes that their media noise machine is having an impact in their nonstop battle against President Trump. It is, just not the impact they want.
The New York Times reported on Wednesday that the president’s support has been moving upward for months. What the article didn’t mention was that it’s all happening while the MSM attacks on him have been perhaps the worst yet.
The Left isn’t just driving votes the president’s way, they’re helping with fundraising too:
Thanks to the unhinged mob on the left, @realDonaldTrump raised $12M today, $2M more than originally expected.
The support for our President is unprecedented and growing!

Imagine how differently 2012 might have gone if her Uncle Mitt had that kind of honest swagger.
This really is probably the key to the 2020 election. There already are waves of people who were uncomfortable voting for Trump in 2016 who now can’t imagine letting what the Democrats have become regain the White House.
Just two days ago I was explaining this to a very leftist cousin of mine. We’re close and we don’t let politics interfere with our relationship, so it was a good discussion. He was a bit surprised because, of course, from the point of view of those on the left, they’re just being passionate.
That passion unfortunately translates into families being harassed when going out to dinner, people getting beaten up for wearing MAGA hats, protesters showing up at Mitch McConnell’s house and a sitting member of Congress publishing a list of Trump donors for the sole purpose of encouraging people to threaten them — which worked, by the way.
Most of the above are examples from just the past couple of weeks. This madness has been going on for almost three years now.
It has been stated many times by independent-minded voters that all the Democrats had to do to have a good shot at getting the White House back is not be insane.
So much for that.
While the Democrats haven’t quite embraced full-on anarchy, they certainly seem inclined to keep moving in that direction if they don’t get their way. Should they get control of the White House and all of Congress we are more than likely in for a very un-American totalitarian nightmare:
This woman has a very strong authoritarian impulse that she’s not even bothering to try and hide. It’s like she thinks promising to take total control and do everything she wants single-handedly will make her a more appealing candidate. https://t.co/JXWRJJ7s2N

As all 623 Democrats running for president have run so far left they couldn’t find the center now if their lives depended on it, we can safely assume they’re all probably in agreement with her.
Fingers-crossed that the mob will keep being unwitting accomplices to President Trump’s reelection because Heaven help us all if this frothing horde gets too much power again.
