A few comments on President Trump's speech to the joint sitting.
A significant victory for Trump and a huge blow to the Democrats and their Fake News media friends who have invested their all in demonizing Trump and making him out to be 'not a normal' president. Like the political left and their media hangers on in NZ continually underestimated John Key, so have their contemporaries in America underestimated president Trump.
He looked, sounded and was 'presidential.' As one astute commentator put it, that speech 'normalized' Trump and gave the lie to his detractors' hysterical efforts of the past two months to paint him as abnormal. Trump showed himself to be unimpeachable normal and if there was any abnormality it was his continued drive to keep his election promises, a concept foreign to the Democratic Party.
It is instructive to note a number of political commentators from hitherto anti-Trump media were effusive n their praise. This represents a major back down for them and a real victory for Trump. The question is, will they revert to form? I doubt it. They now know where there ratings come from.
Also instructive were the gasps and audible groans from democrats when Trump announced an inquiry into the adverse effects upon victims of crimes committed by illegal immigrants. The Democratsy could feel their legs and their supply of fraudulent voters being chopped off.
All in all, I think this was a turning point. The speech was indeed a game changer.
