Sore Losers Call Trump A Sore Winner Or Something

Ever since the election results came in, Democrats have been the ultimate sore losers, and the Washington Post’s Dana Milbank has been a participant. He’s attempted to mansplain the woman card to Kellyanne Conway. He’s whined numerous times about Russia. He’s stated that the election was rigged. He’s essentially been a sore loser. Now we get

Trump gets no respect. That’s because he hasn’t earned it.

Kellyanne Conway is walking a Dangerfield line.

“We got no forbearance. We got nothing. We got no respect,” the Trump strategist told CNN’s Anderson Cooper last week, complaining about media coverage of her boss. “This man is president of the United States!”

Conway raises a fair question: Why hasn’t the president-elect been given more respect?

Here’s a fair answer: He hasn’t earned any.

It wouldn’t matter, because people like Milbank, 100% in the pocket of the Democratic Party, wouldn’t give any even if Trump was pushing Progressive issues and policies.

To Trump’s many self-assigned superlatives, he can now add another: the sorest winner. With charity for none and with malice toward all but his supporters, he has in the past two months set a new standard for gracelessness in victory.

What Milbank is upset about is that Trump is doing exactly what Democrats have been doing for decades: attacking. And, Trump is refusing to back down when attacked. Democrats in the media, meaning about 90% of those who work in the news media, expect Republicans to simply sit there and take it, saying nary a word. Which is what Republicans have been doing for decades.

The Republican base has pleaded with Republicans to fight back. No matter whether they are quiet or attack back, they are damned by the news media. So, they might as well attack back. George W. Bush almost never responded, to the point that his administration barely defended their own policies. It got to a point that GOP pundits became tired of attempting to defend what Bush wouldn’t.

Now, Trump is showing the Democrats and their compliant media that he’s willing to play their game, that he’s no patsy who will just sit there and take it with a grin. Trot out John Lewis and proclaim him off limits for things he did almost a half century ago? Trump doesn’t care. There will be no “ultimate moral authority” figures. You get back what you offer.

Get used to that. Trump knows the game, and, like him, hate him, agnostic about him, he won’t be sitting back while Democrats run roughshod.

The losers often have hard feelings after elections. But this much enmity from the winner is extraordinary. Trump, after his election-night promise to “bind the wounds of division” and be a “president for all Americans,” never attempted reconciliation. A day later, he falsely condemned “professional protesters, incited by the media,” and at year end he taunted opponents via Twitter: “Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love!”

The tweet was lame, but, that’s Trump. Funny that Milbank had no complaints over Obama attacking citizens, saying “he won” to Republicans, castigating John McCain after the election, using the IRS to assault Conservative citizen groups, and never attempting to bring the country together. And let’s not forget all the allies and world leaders he insulted and threw under the bus.

If the Sore Losers want Trump to be a good winner, then they shouldn’t start things. As the ancient Tibetan Philosophy states “Don’t start none, won’t be none!

    trump is a pathetic little man; an insecure loser. He’s not a leader and he is incapable of tolerating dissent.

    The oleaginous David Brooks who rarely hits his mark, hits this clown on the head:

    Normal leaders promulgate policies. They measure their days by how they propose and champion actions and legislation.

    Trump doesn’t think in this way, either. He is a creature of the parts of TV and media where DISPLAY is an end in itself. He is not really interested in power; his entire life has been about winning attention and status to build the Trump image for low-class prestige. The posture IS the product.

    When Trump issues a statement, it may look superficially like a policy statement, but it’s usually just a symbolic assault in some DOMINANCE-SUBMISSION MALE RIVAL GAME. It’s trash-talking against a rival, Barack Obama, or a media critic like CNN. Trump may be bashing Obama on Russia or the Mideast, but it’s not because he has implementable policies in those realms. The primary thing is bashing enemies.

    For trump, it’s all about the image. He is hard-wired (because of his base insecurity as a man) to WIN every interaction, whether large or small, important or not. His projected image depends on it. trump may or may not turn out to be the worst US president in history, but he’s most certainly the worst person to ever be installed; ahead of Andrew Johnson and Richard Nixon. W was a horrible President, certainly one of the 10 worst, but was not a bad man, just weak. Let’s hope trump’s inaugural is as successful for America as William Henry Harrison’s!

    Can we all work together to limit the damage trump does to America?

    Which is exactly what this clown is doing himself.

  5. Jeffery says:

    “Strong” “man” trump attacks his critics, soon he’ll be able to use the full power of the US gov’t to teach those mean people a lesson!

  6. Where were you, Jeff, when Obama was attacking his critics? I didn’t see you having a problem with that.

    What about John Lewis attacking Trump? By your own words, you should be condemning him. Do you? Will you?
