President Donald Trump’s enemies will do anything to remove him from office.
And they’re not above resorting to sleazy, gutter-level tactics to do it.
Their latest strategy? Convince the American public that Trump is stupid, mentally ill, or possibly suffering from dementia.
Michael Wolff’s new book, Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, makes repeated, serious allegations about Trump’s intelligence.
MSNBC personality (and fierce Trump enemy Joe Scarborough) has accused Trump of having early signs of dementia, an accusation that has been irresponsibly repeated by media outlets like Newsweek and Vanity Fair.
Of course, Trump made hundreds of long, off-the-cuff speeches to thousands of people at a time on the 2016 campaign trail.
Know too many dementia patients doing that?
The fact is, there’s a secret behind these latest allegations that Trump critics don’t want you to know.
These attacks on leading Republicans aren’t new. They’re part of a shameful playbook that American liberals have been using for decades.
And these tactics help explain why Democrats lost the presidential election in 2016. The fact is…
Democrats have accused every single Republican president in recent history of being mentally incompetent.
It’s part of their elitist strategy that says if politicians (or even regular citizens) don’t share the liberal worldview, they must be mentally defective in some way.
And that’s a major turn-off to countless voters.
Going back to the 1970s, President Gerald Ford was routinely portrayed as a bumbling fool and the intellectual inferior to challenger Jimmy Carter (how did that work out?).
President Ronald Reagan, too, was accused of possessing low intelligence, even as he helped end the Cold War and delivered one of the strongest economies in recent history. Liberals even spread rumors that Reagan was suffering from dementia during his second term – not terribly different from the allegations being spread about Trump now.
President George Bush, Sr., at least on paper, may have been one of the most qualified men to ever assume the American presidency. A Yale graduate, Bush was a former Congressman, ambassador, vice president, and director of the Central Intelligence Agency.
Of course, liberals instead painted him as a blundering idiot. Who could forget the infamous Dana Carvey impressions on Saturday Night Live?
Bush’s Vice President Dan Quayle (who went on to make millions in the private sector) and Bush’s son, former President George W. Bush, got the same treatment.
Contrast this, of course, with how liberals and their media cronies portray Democratic presidents.
They’ll tell you that former President Bill Clinton was a “genius,” albeit a flawed one. Barack Obama supporters have even claimed he had the highest IQ of any president ever elected (so where are those college transcripts?).
If Democrats want to understand why they’re losing working-class and middle-of-America voters, this would be a great place to start.
There’s a smug, elitist, and condescending element that has hijacked the Democratic Party and that is doing it no favors. And the message that “if you don’t agree with us, you’re stupid” is deeply offensive to millions of voters.
Is there anything wrong with Trump’s intelligence or mental health? Of course not.
It’s the Democrats who are operating with flawed thinking. It cost them the election in 2016… and they still haven’t learned a thing.
