Wall Street Journal Obliterates Trump, It’s So Bad That Even Republicans Won’t Defend Him

This WSJ article tore the president apart - and it was written by a Republican.

Donald Trump’s presidency has been such a disaster, and his attacks on the press just continue to get worse even though our media is far more trusted and honest than the president and his corrupt administration.

Things have gotten bad enough that even Republicans have a very hard time defending their president after he embarrasses the country or gets ripped by the press. We can all recall the deafening silence from the GOP after what happened last year when the Wall Street Journal took a major stab at the president.

Conservative columnist Peggy Noonan had written a blistering article about the Tweeter in Chief called “Trump is Woody Allen Without the Humor.” Captioned with “Half his tweets show utter weakness. They are plaintive, shrill little cries, usually just after dawn,” it couldn’t be more true a year later. Not much has changed since then, as the article points out:


The President’s primary problem as a leader isn’t that he is brash and stupid, “It is that he is weak and sniveling. It is that he undermines himself almost daily by ignoring traditional norms and forms of American masculinity.

He’s not strong and self-controlled, not cool and tough, not low-key and determined; he’s whiny, weepy and self-pitying. He throws himself, sobbing, on the body politic. He’s a drama queen. It was once said, sarcastically, of George H.W. Bush that he reminded everyone of her first husband. Trump must remind people of their first wife.”

Trump was known for “talking tough” on the campaign trail, but his leadership has been quite the opposite. While he continues to talk a big game, he has broken most of his campaign promises and refuses to stand up to countries that are major threats to the United States, like Russia. Instead of being the confident leader he made his followers believe he was, Trump ended up being a whiny baby who throws a tantrum anytime someone disagrees with him.

Noonan’s article, especially because she is a Republican, is humiliating for the GOP and her feelings have been echoed by many of her conservative colleagues. Trump is so problematic and flawed that the party is abandoning him, unable to defend his behavior. Trump is sinking the GOP, leaving their only hope for survival in jumping ship and distancing themselves from Trump.
