Yesterday President Trump did what he hinted at Tuesday in Phoenix – he pardoned Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
And Leftists on Twitter wasted no time vilifying both President Trump and Sheriff Joe.
Immediately, Trump supporters were quick to point out that most of those objecting had no problem with Barack Obama pardoning an unrepentant domestic terrorist and a traitor.
Maybe if Sheriff Joe had betrayed the country then changed his name to Betsy, the left would be orgasming.

By commuting the sentence of his idol Oscar Lopez-Rivera, President Obama celebrated one of our nation's most notorious & deadly terrorists. https://t.co/IQ1OBvr9Ma

But there really is no point in playing the What-About game with Leftists.
Sure, it may make you feel better. And all your points are perfectly valid.
But it is a fruitless endeavor.
The What-About game only works if the other side possesses a conscience.
And that’s something the Left is not burdened with.
It’s why calling them hypocrites slides off them like they’ve been Scotch-Guarded.
They know they’re hypocrites.
And because they lack a conscience, being hypocrites doesn’t bother them one bit.
Their hatred for Donald Trump is an all-consuming fire. And it’s blinded them to reason, logic and any semblance of perspective.
As a result, there’s no debating them. And there’s no changing their minds.
So what’s the point of indulging in the What-About game with people like that?
The truth is, in all these years, the Left hasn’t changed one bit.
It’s been fifteen years since Ann Coulter’s book Slander: Liberal Lies About the American Right was released.
And nothing has changed.
Leftists lie about everything.
The goal is to get the lie out there, have it repeated by everyone on your side. And that way, by the time the Right starts using the What-About game, nobody is listening because all they hear is the slander.
President Trump hinted on Tuesday that he planned to pardon Sheriff Joe.
And for the next three days, the Left prepared their slander and smears.
That way, the instant it happened they could descend like a swarm of locusts.
By the end of the evening on Friday, Joe Arpaio had been successfully smeared as a white supremacist, a racist, a xenophobe and criminal.
Journalists, politicians, celebrities – they all joined in the pig-pile.
So by the time we got around to playing the What-About game, the slander of Sheriff Joe was already the driving narrative.
This is just how the Left operates.
As the old saying goes, “A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting its shoes on.”
They know they’re lying.
And they don’t care.
Lying, slandering, smearing, hypocrisy – all of it is acceptable in their mission to undermine this country.
The only people we can hope to sway are those who are not blindly invested in the Left’s narrative.
And though we may not be outnumbered, when it comes to advancing a narrative, we are often outgunned.
So why waste our ammunition playing the What-About game with the Left?
Forget about them.
This is one of the reasons I think it’s important that President Trump continues to use Twitter to get his message out.
We won’t win by trying to confront the Left directly.
Instead, we need to get used to going around them completely.
While it might make you feel better to play the What-About game, ultimately, it will be as effectively as bashing your head into a brick wall.
And not just any brick wall. But a brick wall that knows it is built on a foundation of lies.
So go around the brick wall just like Donald Trump does with his Twitter account.
The President doesn’t play the What-About game with the Left. Instead, he simply conveys his message directly to the people as if that brick wall isn’t even there.
