Stephen Colbert Debases President Trump, Himself, His Network...And America

                Stephen Colbert, classy late-night comedian that he is, had great sport with the president of the United States, Donald Trump, recently. He warmed up by gradually increasing his anti-Trump rhetoric as his monologue/rant went on, until he blew a gasket and declared: “Sir, you attract more skinheads than free Rogaine. You have more people marching against you than cancer. You talk like a sign-language gorilla that got hit in the head.” And then he got mean, saying, “In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster.”
                Try to imagine if that line was uttered about Barack Hussein Obama. Or Hillary Clinton. Or, for that matter, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi or Maxine Waters. Good-bye Stephen Colbert. Think again if Colbert had said of Hillary Clinton: “In fact, the only thing your mouth is good for is being Vladimir Putin’s cock holster.” Or pick any name other than Vladimir Putin. Perhaps Vincent Foster. He would have been accused of a hate crime, yanked off the air, and sent to a re-education camp. If he was lucky.
                I have never been a big proponent of Donald Trump. I have been consistent. I have been a Ted Cruz supporter from the get go. Trump is governing a lot like a Democrat lately, which surprises me not at all. He was- and is- however, a much better alternative than Hillary. What is extremely puzzling, is that Trump is governing much like a Democrat, as George W. Bush did in many cases as well, and is still the recipient of not just the left’s criticism, but of the most vile, over-the-top, outright hatred to which any president- or possibly even any elected official- has ever been exposed.
                The left politicizes everything. Everything. And then refuses to acknowledge the results of the most basic political process in a democratic republic, how the people voted. Progressives proclaim to the world their righteousness, their tolerance, their inclusiveness, even as they engage in the politics of personal destruction, break things and attack anyone that doesn’t completely agree with their every crazed, disjointed thought.

                How do we reconcile the left’s deranged hatred of a (very) moderate Republican? Like Kim Jong un, they dislike America, are 100% selfishly and ideologically driven, and are clinically insane. Trump’s clumsy, inarticulate tweets and his determination to push back against their media send them into a demented frenzy, like a massive school of piranhas tearing at a bleeding carcass.
