The smug bigotry of Trump-haters

They told me if I vote for Donald Trump we would be overwhelmed with bigotry the likes of which we have never seen before.

And, boy, were they right. Little did we know, however, those obsessed in their opposition to Mr. Trump were actually speaking about themselves.

Last week was a banner one for anti-Trump bigotry. During a briefing at the White House detailing President Trump’s new immigration plan giving priority to those who, among other things, speak English, Jim Acosta, CNN’s White House correspondent, responded, “This whole notion of they have to learn English before they get to the United States, are we just going to bring in people from Great Britain and Australia?”

Mr. Acosta was widely panned for the ignorance of the remark, but it’s also an example of Michael Gerson’s phrase, “the soft bigotry of low expectations.” Coined when he was President George W. Bush’s speechwriter, it perfectly describes the smug attitude of the elite expecting the downtrodden to automatically fail, and their perpetual need for government to save them from themselves.

Stephen Miller, the president’s aide, immediately confronted Mr. Acosta’s casual contempt. “This is an amazing moment,” he said, “that you think only people from Great Britain or Australia would speak English is so insulting to millions of hardworking immigrants who do speak English from all over the world.”

Exactly, but it was even more than that..

Can we just agree to allow only the smart informed people into the room to debate these things and leave the idiots outside? It doesn't matter which side of the issue you are on. I'm so tired of the dumbest people out there getting the most attention and being the ones that influence decision making.

Trump haters are a select breed of idiots who think they are the educated elite. They despise the Prez because of the fact they have produced 'nothing' in their lives to put them on par with him. They furthermore can't pull the wool over his eyes because he's already been there,done that, and he knows the score and they can't influence his opinion or position no matter what they do or say. He's proved that....He's the President,won fair and square, and NONE of them Schummer on down can have that post no matter what they do. Biden says he doesn't WANT to be Prez. That's NOT the case....He can't attain it because he doesn't have the 'Right Stuff' as the other HOPEFULS. That's where that word came from.... A gaggle of second stringers who HOPE they'll get elected. He didn't have to hope, he had the finger on the pulse of American Sentiment and he knew how to use it. ALL THE DEMOCRATS just as well suck it up because in 2020 he'll be the 'MAN' again. So sorry Pelosi, the shock will probably kill you. (I hope!) Not Fooled.... Bob Aswell..Realist
