Some guys have all the luck. Trump’s one of those guys. His political good fortune began in 2016 with his Democratic opponent, the most unpopular Presidential candidate of all time. In 2020 he will be blessed by a Democratic opponent to the left of George McGovern. He, or she, will be by far the most left wing major political candidate in our history. It will be Trump’s election to lose.
In addition, Trump has been given a gift that will keep on giving — the Democratic Majority Caucus, led by Nancy Pelosi, Mad Maxine Waters, and freshmen Rashida “Impeach the m——–!” Tlaib, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes, who wants a 70% income tax rate to spend on the environment.
It’s not just these four. There are dozens of Democrats who have been waiting to get back in the majority, and back into power. They’re all hungry for publicity, and will chase any willow wisp they see. But it will all be theater, and amount to nothing.
Sublimely above it all, President Trump will go about his business of making America great again.
It’s always good to have a leader who’s lucky.
