If Trump Were a Democrat

Speech delivered by Chairman Lamar Smith on the House floor on January 23, 2017

Just think what the media would be saying about President Trump, if he were a Democrat:

“He has tremendous energy. He campaigned for 18 months, puts in 15 hour days, and has the stamina of a bull elephant, like Teddy Roosevelt.

“He is courageous, even fearless. Given the amount of hate directed his way, no doubt he constantly receives death threats. But that doesn’t curtail his public appearances or seem to worry him in the least.

“He has conviction. He practices what he preaches. He doesn’t waffle or waiver. And he’s obviously not deterred by media criticism.

“He is a great father. Any time a son or daughter calls, he picks up the phone. He includes them in his activities. Clearly he has a strong relationship with his children.

“He is off to a fast start. His cabinet consists of smart, experienced, and successful individuals. He already has taken steps to keep jobs in America, put unnecessary regulations on hold, and improve health care. Consumer confidence is at a 16 year high."

No, the national liberal media won’t print that, or air it, or post it. Better to get your news directly from the president. In fact, it might be the only way to get the unvarnished truth.
