Liberals Smash Ronald Reagan After Mark Levin Says Trump's Foreign Policy Is 'Reagan's Third Term'
The Left will attack anyone who is credibly compared to President Donald Trump. Even Ronald Reagan — whom Americans rank as the best president since World War II — must be maligned if he is compared to Trump. When Mark Levin said Trump's foreign policy effectively represented "Reagan's third term," they pounced.
"I listened to president Trump's speech today, it was an incredible speech. It was anoustanding speech," Levin said on his radio program. He agreed with a Conservative Review story declaring that "Trump's national security strategy is Reagan's third term."
"It is. It is a muscular, prudential national security strategy," Levin said. He contrasted Trump's foreign policy with President Barack Obama's, which he said was oriented around "appeasement, surrender of American sovereignty, and capitulation."
On Tuesday morning, "Reagan's third term" started trending on Twitter, so liberals reached to attack Reagan — because he was compared to Trump.
"Didn't read the article, but is it Ronald Reagan's Third Term because Trump is also senile af?" asked Greg Olear, founding editor of the Trump-Russia obsessed online outlet "The Weeklings." (Twitter has given Olear the coveted blue checkmark, while removing PJ Media terror expert Bridget Johnson...)
This below-the-belt attack on Reagan and Trump hit on the much-disputed story that Reagan's Alzheimer's — which eventually claimed his life — struck him during his presidency. Serious historians dispute this claim, but it remains a popular way to discredit Reagan.
