Trump speaks truth with­out sugar-coat­ing it

The State - - Opinion -

I be­lieve the old adage “Keep it sim­ple stupid” ap­plies to Pres­i­dent Trump most ap­pro­pri­ately.

I’ve watched his ral­lies when he was run­ning for of­fice and, of late, watched him go­ing around the coun­try be­fore the midterms to gin up his base and pro­mote vot­ing to keep Democrats from tak­ing over the Con­gress.

As an in­de­pen­dent voter, I made no bones about chastis­ing the news me­dia for mis­in­form­ing the pub­lic while back­ing up liars in the Demo­cratic Party.

Trump’s lan­guage is un­like the for­mer liar-in-chief whose words melted like but­ter drip­ping off his tongue ev­ery time he opened his mouth. Nei­ther he nor his co­horts in de­ceit could be trusted from the very be­gin­ning when he promised the world and gave us mis­ery.

Trump, on the other hand, with his sim­ple vo­cab­u­lary has been check­ing off his list of promises one by one as the coun­try thrives. He is a doer not a speaker with a so­phis­ti­cated vo­cab­u­lary who will mes­mer­ize the masses into be­liev­ing a lie. The Democrats on the other hand with their pa­thetic de­mands for Trump to tone down his lan­guage and not de­fend him­self against nu­mer­ous at­tacks have no mo­ral com­pass to ask him to stop.

Be­ing from the old school of “don’t be­lieve any­thing you hear and only half of what you see,” I like what I see so far. I hope I’m not alone. – Gre­gory To­pliff
