I don’t think I’m breaking any new information when I tell you that there are those in America who don’t love President Trump. Shocking, I know. But what is unclear is why the follow him around to his rallies to hear him speak. They may as well sit on their comfy couches and be angry with the POTUS, but no, they’ve got to go to his events and show their displeasure.
This was the case when the President was speaking in Iowa on Wednesday. The crowd gathered to hear him talk about the nation, his administration and, well it’s Trump, you never really know exactly what you’ll get.
He began his remarks with a reminder about the politicians who were recently put in harm’s way because of the awful deranged shooter who decided to target the all the Republicans who he could find while they were playing baseball in Virginia recently. The President decided to do the kind thing and remind the nation that we need to extend our prayers and good thoughts. Of course, that was unacceptable to the liberal hordes who decided to flock to President Trump just to try and make his life a little more difficult. In his typical fashion though, he didn’t let it bother him too much.
“President Donald Trump was speaking in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, Wednesday night when protesters tried to interrupt his speech and rally.
Fortunately for Trump, his many supporters weren’t having it and, with their overpowering chant of ‘USA! USA!,’ drowned out the protesters’ cries.
Trump began the Iowa speech by sending condolences and prayers to injured House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), who was injured last week in a shooting at a GOP congressional baseball practice in Alexandria, Virginia.
The president also acknowledged and celebrated recent Republican victories in special elections in South Carolina and Georgia.
As protesters at the event ramped up their jeers and boos, Trump stopped and motioned to wave them off. He laughed their angry cries off and said, “Never fails” with a winning smile.
The crowd then began their “USA” chant and police began to lead the protesters out.
The protesters were booed as they were ushered out of the arena.
‘And we love our police,’ Trump said. ‘We love our police.’

I just do not get how praying for an innocent person who was shot could offend anyone, ever, for any reason. And yet, since it was a republican that was hurt, we shouldn’t even wish that they get better any time soon. If that’s not the picture of hateful liberalism, I don’t know what is. I think that bi-partisan wish for bullet hole free life is supposed to be a given, no matter your politics.
But, wishing for a friend to get well wasn’t the only objectionable thing that the President did during his speech. He also had the audacity to call out the fake news again, and as you’ve probably guessed, the fake news didn’t care for it.
“At a Wednesday night rally in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, President Trump addressed attendees about the treatment he receives from the media and the reaction they would have had if Republican Karen Handel lost to Democrat Jon Ossoff in the GA-6 special election.
The crowd booed when Trump mentioned CNN and “phony NBC.” Trump poked fun at NBC for blaming bad weather for Handel’s win. Last night on MSNBC, Rachel Maddow asked if the “turnout effect” would have been different if not for the “bad weather.”
‘This kid, who forgot to live in the community he was in,’ Trump joked about Ossoff, who did not live in Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, the seat he was seeking to represent in the House.
‘I will tell you about the Democrats. I’m making it a little hard to get their support, but who cares?’ Trump said.
‘I will tell you about the Democrats,’ Trump said. ‘They raised a fortune for him, they fought like hell. They said they were going to win. All of the television networks, other than FOX, which really has treated us fairly, by the way. They have.
‘But they built these studios. CNN,’ Trump started to say but was interrupted by boos for the network.
‘Hey, the camera just went off,’ Trump said of CNN’s camera at the event. ‘I can’t imagine why. This is covered live. I can’t imagine why.’
‘This phony NBC television network,’ Trump said to another round of heavy boos for that network. “They actually had one of the people say, ‘You know, it was a little rainy last night. Maybe that was the difference in Karen’s race.’ Can you believe that?’
‘But they have these beautiful studios. And if Karen Handel had lost, they would have blamed it on me which is fine. But if she had lost, they would have been there for weeks talking about [how] this being the greatest defeat in the history of American politics,’ the president said Wednesday night.
‘When she won, when they said projected winner is Karen Handel — then they said we switch to another program. Right? They were so sure. They couldn’t get out of there fast enough,’ Trump joked about the media response.”
Yes, diplomacy is a good thing, but hearing a president call out a group of people, or a news organization in the middle of his speech for their liberal crap feels like a breath of fresh air for the long choked by the smog of lies and at best half-truths delivered to us on the nightly news. They can boo him if they want, but he’s still going to expose every lie and horrible moral failure that they throw at him. And that’s why we elected him.
It’s still a free country, and if the President wants to pray for his friend and our representative to Congress on live TV, all the buttercups are just going to have to suck it up, because there’s a lot more where that came from.
Share if you think the President was right to call out the liberal haters and fake news!
