Mirrorless Monday: Are You Tired of Winning Yet?

Are you tired of winning yet?

I only ask because what as recently as anytime during the Obama years would have been trumpeted across every headline and blasted non-stop by all news outlets has lately been buried. It’s mostly been covered only by financial outlets, that have nothing else to report.

And even the financial press seems loath to report the truth behind why the stock market keeps hitting new highs nearly every week. They surely don’t want to give any credit to the President who imposed tariffs, to which they are universally opposed, and passed tax cuts they feared would backfire. So instead they credit China, specifically the rising optimism for a U.S.- China trade deal. That’s something that ironically never would have happened but for the tariffs imposed by President Trump.

The truth of course is that the President’s tax cuts, tariffs and U.S. friendly trade deals are working across all sectors of the economy: it is booming. Jobs are plentiful, inflation is under control, if the stupid Democrats would shut up and do their real job the groundwork for another American Century could be firmly laid. But they’d rather salve their festering hurt feelings by trying to impeach a man for beating their unbeatable candidate; their idol whose feet were not just made of clay but were firmly mired in it.

So rather than celebrate America’s resurgent return to greatness that they not-so-secretly loath they prefer to continue disparaging the President to their own ends.

Adam Schiff will continue to accuse him of being a “charlatan” without an “ethical compass.”

“The most profound threat to democracy today is not from Russia... The most grave threat to the life and health of our democracy comes from within, from a president without ethical compass.” - California Democratic Party’s Fall Endorsing Convention November 16, 2019

And Nancy Pelosi will proceed to refer to him as an “imposter”

“I think part of it is his own insecurity as an imposter. I think he knows full well that he's in that office way over his head. And so he has to diminish everyone else.” Face the Nation, November 17, 2019

Which is where this week’s Mirrorless Monday kicks in:

Investigative adjudicator

Inspector Schiff looks into the mirror, sees a charlatan and of course assumes it is President Trump.

And Nancy, who has sworn off mirrors entirely for obvious reasons,

tells us that she and the rest of the Democrats are proceeding with the impeachment investigation “heartbroken and prayerful” and expects us to believe that President Trump, not she, is the “imposter.”

I don’t know about you, but I’m not tired of winning yet.
