One year after he took the oath of office, the so-called “Resistance” to President Donald Trump has undergone fits and starts over his work.
In National Review, Victor Davis Hanson breaks down the interesting roots of the Resistance: the inability of Democratic ex-presidents to back away from America’s body politic when their terms expire.
The constant harping by former Presidents Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and now even Barack Obama about their successors has added oxygen to the impatient “Resistance.”
Hanson actively eviscerates the “read-fire-aim” approach of the current band of liberal rascals – ranging from bizarre conspiracy theories floated by fake news to the activist bend of newsmen to the outright violence undertaken against conservative elected officials.
And as California grabs the mantle as “Resistance, USA,” Hanson posits that – in the face of the Trump Economy – resistance may prove to be a futile vanity exercise.
