Say this for Trump. Say that he’s exposed everyone for who they are.
Since Trump’s election, our traditional institutions have changed, to say the least. On the left, things have gone haywire: Democratic representatives who hid histories of blackface and sexual assault are being kept in office under the justification that it would be worse to allow Republicans into their positions. Late term abortion is being legalized in Rhode Island, despite a February poll showing that the state's citizens disapprove of such changes.
The media has shown itself to be unreliable in its pursuit of discrediting Trump and Republicans to boot. While the term “fake news” may be misused, it reflects an underlying frustration with the way in which individuals on the right are treated by the media. Most recently, the unreserved way in which the media first accepted the alleged Jussie Smollett hoax has exemplified this phenomenon.
On the right, things have not been much better. Trump has exposed many on the right for who they are; unprincipled power-hungry stooges who will accept whoever and whatever it takes to win.
The most recent example of the downfall of the Republican party is exemplified in the next meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference ,or CPAC, as it is more commonly known. To understand exactly what I mean by this, let me list a few of the speakers at this conference: Charlie Kirk, Candance Owens, Sebastian Gorka, Brandon Straka, Diamond and Silk, Rick Harrison, Judge Jeanine Pirro, and Nigel Farage. These are not conservatives. These are charlatans.
