Weekly Wrap-Up

There’s been a lot of noise this week, and it’s covered up the fact that President Trump continues to gain popularity with the American people.

“President Trump can’t get a break from negative press coverage, but somehow his approval rating continues to edge upward,” Investors Business Daily notes. “In fact, it’s now tied with where the ‘extremely popular’ President Obama was at this point in his first term.”

Here’s the first question in our new Weekly Poll: Why do you think President Trump’s approval ratings have continued to increase? I have a few theories – maybe it’s because he actually gets results, or perhaps Americans support President Trump’s efforts to shake up Washington.

The “negative press coverage” this week has centered on the crisis at our borders, which President Trump is stuck with since Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama failed to act. 

In fact, much of the disturbing imagery coming of children-in-distress comes from the Obama Era – a fact the media liberals refuse to acknowledge. In fact, they’re actively covering it up, aided and abetted by liberal politicians including Nancy Pelosi (her hypocrisy is on display here) and Cynthia Nixon, who much like her leftist allies seeks to dehumanize hard-working border agents.

Which word do you think BEST describes the media’s coverage of illegal alien families?  That’s the second question in our new Weekly Poll.

This is looking like a battle the media elites are going to lose – Americans have enough common sense to know who’s to blame for this situation. And as Chuck Schumer illustrated this week, Democrats don’t really care about these kids.

One of the most sickening aspects of the media/liberal’s exploitation of the border crisis? The constant comparisons to the Holocaust. If you have to be told that America today is nothing like Nazi Germany, you are most likely beyond hope.

This cheapening of our debate makes the loss this week of the great Charles Krauthammer even more profound. Tributes are pouring in, and for our third and final Weekly Poll question, I have compiled some interesting quotes from Mr. Krauthammer. Let me know which one is your favorite.

And have a great weekend!
