Leftist State-Corporate Media is resentful of the personal connection between the American people and 2024 presidential candidate Donald J. Trump.
The members of the administrative state, who wish to eliminate Trump due to his refusal to abandon the working class or his “America First” agenda, are bewildered by the public’s refusal to abandon Trump.
Their sulking and clutching of pearls over how Trump is perceived by the public reveals whether they believe their true duties are to represent a corporate agenda or the American people.
The liberal media frequently mocks and disdains the populace, so we know which side they support.
Consider Vanity Fair’s sulk regarding Trump:
“In the normal pre-Donald Trump world, a politician getting in trouble for paying off an adult film star he allegedly cheated on his third wife with would be, you know, a political scandal like the kind that brought down everyone from Eliot Spitzer to John Edwards.
But Trump has made it so his sex scandals and possible election interference aren’t functions of his own behavior, but rather deep state plots to keep MAGA down.
It’s the greatest trick Trump ever played on Republicans; he’s convinced them that attempts at accountability for his actions are a direct assault on them.
“This is an attack on our country the likes of which has never been seen before,” he posted after news of his coming indictment in the Stormy Daniels hush money case, adding that it’s part of the “continuing attack on our once free and fair elections.” And this framing of his personal scandals as nefarious forces targeting his supporters has cemented his hold on the base.
Trump’s refusal to accept any personal responsibility and his ability to double down in a truly pathological way has created a world where his base no longer operates in reality, but instead in a kind of MAGA land. It’s a terrain so profoundly distorted that Trump’s base believes that organizations like the FBI and the CIA are composed almost entirely of liberals whose sole purpose is to hurt their guy, and by extension, them.
In this scenario, the act of holding Trump accountable isn’t actually about holding Trump accountable at all. Trump’s indictment is everyone’s fault except for Trump’s. He has an ability to say a lie, like the 2020 election being “stolen,” so many times, and so shamelessly, that much of the GOP base believes it. “The witch-hunts against President Trump have no basis in facts or law.
The deranged special counsel and the DoJ have now resorted to prosecutorial misconduct by illegally leaking information to corrupt the legal process and weaponize the justice system in order to manipulate public opinion and conduct election interference, because they are clearly losing all across the board,” Trump spokesman Steven Cheung wrote in a statement about the DOJ’s investigation into the classified documents found in Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence. “
That is the perspective of the petulant left. But supporters of Trump and his agenda have an entirely different perspective:
Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake reacted to the indictment during an event at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate and after his court appearance in New York earlier in the day on Tuesday evening.
Lake was asked by a reporter,” What did you make of today’s proceedings in New York?”
“I don’t know if I can say it, it’s just a sh*tshow,” Lake declared.
When asked if she thought the court proceedings could hurt Trump in the 2024 general election, Lake said: “No, not at all. Are you kidding? The guy is raising millions of dollars from people who have never donated one penny to politics. They understand and they recognize bullying when they see it.”
“A lot of these are mama bears. And they recognize bullying. And some of their kids have been bullied. President Trump has been bullied every damn day since he dared to stand up for We The People,” she added.
Lake eventually walked away from the interview and joked that she didn’t have time for the “fake news” any longer.
