Trump’s words vs. Hillary’s deeds

Despite his own claims to the contrary, Donald Trump does not always have the “best words.” Irrespective of his words and/or how the media loves to distort them, Trump’s language doesn’t hold a candle to Hillary Clinton’s evil deeds, a contrast recently highlighted by Meghan McCain, of all people, who stated: “When Donald Trump says things, it offends people sometimes and it can be controversial, but when Hillary makes mistakes, people die.”

Exactly.

Yet the media, the Democratic Party (one in the same entity) and far too many Republicans (shame on them all!) are obsessed with Trump’s occasionally careless language while ignoring Hillary’s hand in bloody outcomes.

What’s up with that?

Priorities please!

And while on the subject of Trump’s language, I had occasion to come across an article by Rich Lowry published at Real Clear Politics that past May where he wrote: “Donald Trump’s philosophy is never to use a scalpel when a meat ax is available…”

I chuckled when I read it, thinking it was clever and accurate.

But then I got to thinking that perhaps a meat ax is needed right now. Sure I’d love it if Trump were more articulate and would fine-tune some of his ideas. But this nation is in crisis. The upcoming presidential election is about our very survival. You could call it an emergency. And because it is, action must be taken apropos to an emergency.

So while I believe Trump’s style of discourse is his own and not something calculated based on the dire straits we’re in, perhaps an ax, and not a scalpel, is just what the doctor ordered at this critical junction in time.
