A reader suggested that I change the name of this blog to Molovinsky On Trump. He believes that I have abandoned my claim on being non-partisan. In reality, I never promoted Trump, but I did push back against the vitriol against him in the media and on facebook. Not suprisingly, my critic was one of the facebook intolerants.
Obama should speak out against the protests. He seems to be practicing selective criticism in regard to properly respecting democracy. I never thought much of liberals thinking that Jon Steward, Bill Maher, or SNL was a source of political insight. Needless to say, none of the Hollywood elite have moved abroad. However, I believe that some of the smugness have been washed off their pretty faces.
ADDENDUM: I took the unusual step of printing a blog post this weekend, because of the extraordinary contention against Trump. I will now take another unusual step, and incorporate that entry, with this addendum, into today's edition.
If possible, I believe that the post election acrimony by the Clinton supporters towards Trump is worse than before the election. I suppose that Trump's detractors never seriously considered him becoming president. Now, that it actually happen, even liberal lawyers are questioning the Constitutionally of the Electoral College. While they previously condemned an obstructionist congress during Obama's term, they are now plodding impeachment against Trump, less than one week after the election. They are planning a one million women march in Washington, for the inauguration. With all the plodding, I have yet to read of one positive idea for their cause or the country. I have yet to hear either Obama or Clinton try to curtail this current negativity. The Clinton's blame their loss on James Comey, rather than her calling half the country deplorable.
I have maintained that protest against a lawful election in a democracy is inappropriate. Others disagree, believing such protest is completely legitimate. I also find accusations of racism against Trump unsubstantiated, and offensive. I heard a Sunday talking head say that Trump should issue a statement to calm the public, worried about his racism. I too believe that this segment must be calmed, but by those elements which made them hysterical in the first place. That would be Obama, but then that might suggest that he indeed did perform as an alarmist, prior to the election.
