Press scrambling to find negative angles.
Let’s cut to the chase …
This is all that people will remember about President Trump’s speech last night.
Even Van Jones – former Obama Czar of Something and now a far-left CNN commentator – conceded:
Here’s the essence of Jones’s musings as reported in the Washington Post …:
That was one of the most extraordinary moments you have ever seen in American politics, period. And he did something extraordinary.
And for people who have been hoping that he would become unifying, hoping that he might find some way to become presidential, they should be happy with that moment.
For people who have been hoping that maybe he would remain a divisive cartoon, which he often finds a way to do, they should begin to become a little bit worried tonight, because that thing you just saw him do, if he finds a way to do that over and over again, he’s going to be there for eight years.
He did something tonight that you cannot take away from him.
He became president of the United States.
With that as a starting point, the media has a challenge on its hands … how to do some reverse alchemy and turn the gold back into straw?
