The Left Last Week: “OMG! Are you really claiming Obama was spying on Trump? Is that accusation merely insane or actively treasonous?”
The Left This Week: “Of course, Obama was spying on Trump. It’s called ‘National Security.’ Ever hear of it?”
Andy McCarthy at NRO says that while technically legal, Susan Rice’s use of the National Intelligence Apparatus (You know, the people who were watching Donald Trump’s every move but couldn’t be bothered to keep an eye on the Tsarnev Brothers, Tashfyn Maleek, or Omar Mateen) to attack Donald Trump was an abuse of power. I don’t think the left sees it that way. I think they view the use of State Assets to attack Republicans as quite legitimate. You know, because Republicans are Hitler. Whereas Nadal Hassan was just an innocent Muslim guy; how dare you profile him! Racist!
Melania Trump’s White House portrait was revealed earlier this week.
It’s a lovely portrait.
Leftists are going nuts attacking it.
She wore a diamond ring… roll out the guillotines!
“A shopping mall glamor shot” — sneer the elderly feminists at Cosmo.
They are even attacking her because… horror of horrors… she has her arms crossed in the portrait.
Oh, the humanity!
(When Obama crossed his arms for his presidential portrait, the DMC went into joygasms.)
We got lectured non-stop for eight years about what a gorgeous and brilliant woman Michelle Obama was (both claims are arguable) and no one on the left kvetched about the cost of her clothing. Now, we have a truly stunning first lady of considerable accomplishments (successful business woman, speaks five languages) and the deranged people on the left are losing their crap.
And the “she crossed her arms thing” apparently was never a problem when Democrats did it.
