'Panic in Progressive Park' -- What If Trump Is Actually Good?
If you thought Trump Derangement Syndrome was a tad excessive, as they say, you ain't seen nothin' yet. To channel an old Pacino flick, opening now for Oscar season, it's "Panic in Progressive Park."
Reason for the panic -- the dawning realization, repressed and often unrecognized though it may be, that Donald Trump may even a be a good president, possibly a great one.
If anything could cause panic among liberals, progressives, and the media (apologies for the redundancy), that's it.
And Trump has certainly hit the ground running with more "vigah" -- this time to channel an old Kennedy phrase -- than we have seen in a long while. And not just because of the Carrier deal, though that clearly caught America's attention, as it should.
It also caught the attention of the media, which rushed to denigrate it -- and demonstrate their "profound knowledge" of deal-making -- by reminding us that Donald's agreement did not keep all the Carrier jobs in America, just most of them. And they actually had to bargain with the directors of Carrier -- imagine that!
For comic relief, the now completely ignored (as he should be) Bernie Sanders rushed to remind us of the same thing, as if anything of that sort (or any sort) could have been done under a Sanders presidency.
