For months upon months, and even years now, all we hear from Democrats is hatred and blame against President Donald Trump. And as the 2020 elections draw ever closer and the Democratic primary heats up, even more shade is thrown at Trump. It seems the race is not about who will make the best leader for our nation, but who can come up with the most outlandish accusations against our current president.
They have let their blatant dislike for him become more important the people they represent and who live in their communities.
And this week, White House hopeful and Democratic candidate from Texas Beto O’Rourke proves that his only strategy for getting votes is to assault President Trump via the media. After the two horrible mass shootings that took place within our borders, O’Rourke’s first reaction was to blow up and blame Trump.
He told CNN, “We’ve got to acknowledge the hatred, the open racism that we’re seeing. There is an environment of it … We see it from our commander-in-chief. He is encouraging this. He doesn’t just tolerate it; he encourages it.”
He said this mere hours after the tragedies. He didn’t speak of hope, of rebuilding, or even of getting justice for those who so tragically lost their lives. Instead, he incited even more hatred, stirring up those who would so blindly believe the rhetoric the lefts are throwing around.
And the people are getting fed up with his mouth. Some are getting sick and tired of hearing nobodies like O’Rourke douse the president in flames of blame for something that he has absolutely nothing to do with.
Candace Owens is one of those.
The conservative fighter, commentator, and political activist was quick to retort and let the former Texas representative know just how stupid he was for making such accusations.
“The Ohio shooter was a self-described socialist and Elizabeth Warren fan. Do we blame @AOC and her squad?” Owens asked. “No – we do not. We don’t blame anyone but the shooter.”
She went on to label O’Rourke as a “coward for blaming Trump supporters for El Paso,” and to completely burst his bubble, saying, “Rest assure, you will never be President.”
O’Rourke in recent months has seen a significant drop in campaign support, both in the polls and in contributions/donations. Both performances in the Democratic primary debates haven’t helped and have all but put him out of the race, showing him as a mediocre and incompetent candidate. And his embarrassing appearance in Vanity Fair, where he quoted that he was “born” to the president of the United States, pretty much sealed his fate.
So it’s no wonder that his attempts to get back in the game are just that, sad attempts to discredit our president, in the hopes that leftist voters who share his hatred of Trump will come to his aid. What a pathetic rouse?
And you know what is even more pathetic? He has become so obsessed with getting those votes that he as also campaigned in Mexico. Yes, you read that correctly, Mexico, as in another country, with no political connections to the presidential race here in the US.
These sad attempts make Owens backlash and logic even more appreciated.
And this isn’t the only time she has come to the President’s aid in recent weeks. After Trump’s brutally honest remarks about Elijah Cummings Baltimore, the president was immediately labeled as a racist.
Owens was quick to defend the commander-in-chief on Fox News, where she was asked if Trump should be sending a different kind of message through his Twitter account, referring to his remarks about Baltimore.
She responded with a resounding “No.” and continued with, “Because we have seen people do that in the past, we’ve seen Republicans kowtow to the Democrats every time that they turn around and they say somebody is racist, they cower.”
She continued, “It needs to be Trump. It needs to be said.”
And her righteous indignation and logic are not wrong. The truth doesn’t always make us feel good. In fact, sometimes it just plain hurts. But like she said, it needs to be said. And if we then cower after those facts aren’t well-received what does it say about us?
We have to stand for something, and if nothing else, it needs to be the truth. That is why Trump is so hated. He says exactly what is going on and doesn’t back down, and apparently, neither does Owens.
