In a sour-grapes “Trump Is Winning — Are you sick and tired of it yet?” article, Politico journalist MATT LATIMER bewails the fact that Trump is almost certainly going to win re-election.

“Donald Trump is on track to win reelection to the presidency of the United States. Yes, despite Russiagate, despite shitholegate and despite whatever gate he blunders through next. Despite approval ratings that would make Nixon weep. Despite his mind-numbing political misjudgments — defending accused pedophiles, for example — and the endless, unnecessary daily drama. Trump is winning.”

Further down the article he actually records some factual information about Trump, which to me says he is able to see the good that Trump has done. That puts him ahead of most left-wing commentators.

“ Second, consider Trump’s record as president. He actually has something to run on. He’s cut taxes. He’s rolled back regulations. He’s put ISIS on its heels. The economy and the stock market are humming along again, despite recent turmoil.” He accepts these facts but thinks it is all Luck: “First, consider the fact that Trump is simply lucky. Maybe one of the luckiest men to ever run for President.”

Perhaps he could accept that these achievements are proof that America is lucky to have Donald Trump as President: He’s not lucky, but America is lucky, and is finally improving on nearly every metric. If we want to stay lucky, better vote for Trump in 2020, and Republican in the mid-term elections.

And today (5/22/2018) we have confirmation of this trend: read on:
