Trump Does Daytona and Media Melts Down

Trump Does Daytona and Media Melts Down

Yesterday President and Mrs. Trump attended the Daytona 500.  And it was quite an impressive spectacle.

Air Force One did a flyover.

The infamous POTUS limo “The Beast” did a lap around the track.

And, naturally, the media completely lost its marbles.

How dare Trump turn the Daytona 500 into a campaign rally?!

He’s politicizing this event!!!!!

Taxpayer money!!!

I wonder if Kelly O’Donnell was always so persnickety about this kind of thing.

“Big perk.”

Nope. I guess not.

This is to be expected.

Two years ago, in a column titled “The ‘Abnormalization’ of Trump,” Daniel Greenfield pointed out that, even if Trump does something other Presidents have done, the media will treat it as completely abnormal and beyond the pale.

Nothing existed before Trump. Nothing will exist after him. The left is caught in an endless moment of perpetual struggle, stretched out by the nanosecond pace of Twitter and amplified by endless media discourses, of how extraordinarily bad this moment is. In that moment, the left never grows or learns, it writhes in the hellish agonies of its own hatred at Trump’s continuing unnatural existence.

Most sentient human beings, upon seeing the President and FLOTUS at the Daytona 500, either thought, “Cool!” or they thought “Who cares?”

But not the media.  Not the ResistanceLOL.

When I saw the picture of Katie brushing her staffer’s hair while sitting naked in a chair, I literally didn’t know whether to laugh or cry or scream or just puke my guts out.

They have to turn themselves inside-out with indignation over everything President Trump does – especially when the crowds in attendance are excited/happy/delighted by him being there.

Suddenly, the thought of a President using “the official apparatus of government” to attend an event, is a scandal when it never was before.

As Twitchy pointed out last night, President Obama rode around in “the Beast” with comedian Jerry Seinfeld for the series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”

Nobody flipped out.  Everyone – including the media – either thought, “Cool!” or “Who cares?”

But that was different!!! It was Jerry Seinfeld!!! Trump went to Daytona to pander to those gap-tooth yokels!!!!

How many times did Barack Obama fly Air Force One to Los Angeles, then take “the Beast” to some studio so he could appear on “Ellen” or “Late Night” or “The Tonight Show?”

When Michelle Obama went to China in 2014 ostensibly for an official government trip, her two daughters and her mother came along.  They stayed in fancy 5-star hotels and played tourists for ten days – and we taxpayers got to foot the bill for their fancy-pants vacation.

Was Maggie Haberman upset by that?

Did Kelly O’Donnell have a cow?

Of course not.

But President Trump goes to an American city (other than LA) to participate in a very American pastime enjoyed by millions of Americans who don’t live in Hollywood, and these guys have a meltdown.

The reason the media is melting down over Trump at the Daytona 500 is obvious.

They need to convince the country that nobody likes Trump.

And the reaction from the crowd (and the drivers) made that impossible.

It isn’t just about abnormalizing Trump.

It’s about abnormalizing all the things normal, ordinary Americans love.

It’s about abnormalizing us.

They gave Obama a pass because he spent his time hobnobbing with celebrities.

Trump, on the other hand, spends his time mixing with the vulgars – we rags and tatters whom our media betters despise (and laugh at).

This is what infuriates them.

HoW DArE tHeY SMilE aND PoSE fOr PIctUReS!!!! TaXPaYer MOnEy!!!

It is impossible to watch clips from the Daytona 500 and come away thinking, “Jeeze, there’s no way Trump can win reelection; nobody likes him.”

And that is why the media is angry.

They can’t spin this as proof that Trump’s support among Americans is cratering. So they focus on persnickety BS while trying to blow it up into a scandal of never-before-seen proportions.

They don’t care that it makes them look petty and petulant.

They don’t care if it exposes their anti-Trump bias.

There’s a narrative to preserve.

And President Trump’s blockbuster appearance at the Daytona 500 blew past their narrative and left it in the dust.

    “Gentlemen” start your engines! I would think that is what would piss off the Libs.

      Get over it lame stream and liberals.
      You look really idioic trying to beat POTUS down with your pathatic hate or TDS!
      He’s here for another 4 so get over it as your party of white choice has nothing to go up against him in 2020.
      Even if you manage to get a POC into the race it’s too late and no one of Color that’s still with your lost causes would vote for him or her knowing they were thrown in to appease the media not them and as a last minute hail Mary that was thrown way to short!
      Your cause is bleeding your POC backbone faster than water melts sugar.

    I don’t always watch NASCAR,but I did yesterday because I knew the media would never show a second of it. 100,00+ people,standing for the National Anthem,hands over their hearts,People in uniform saluting,a young soldier singing the Anthem,opening prayer by a minister from Daytona,a flyover by the USAF Thunderbirds and OUR president,declaring:”gentlemen,start your engines!!” Then he got in The Beast and was followed for a lap around the track by all the cars before he pulled off. Best I’ve felt in a very long time. There was a screen shot of all the drivers and crew standing with the president on the track while the anthem played and the title was: ‘hey,NFL: THIS is how the anthem is done.’

    The Press (MSM) has hated conservatives for decades. Becuasus they hate so much they frequently lie!
    In 1979 GHWB , in a typical liberal ad hominem attack, called the man who destroyed him in 1980 a “xenophobic, racist”. When the President opposed ADDING MLK to the list of holidays the Press was fast to use GHWB’s name calling against Ronny! Ron was not agains MKL holiday, he wanted to trade it with some other day keeping the total # of federal holidays the same.

    Many other times between 1980 + 2004 the Press called Ronny a racist.

    I think I saw an article by the post’s conservative – Rubin – calling Ronny a racist this year – but can not find it.

    We didn’t want the race, but we viewed the videos of AF-1 Flyover and the Presidential limo making it’s lap. Just very cool!

    To quote a now famous democrat: “Democrats got an ass whipping coming in 2020!”

    Hey Maggie Haberman, did that patent you applied for to name the 23 different strains of mutating clamaydia std you are growing/festering even get approved? I bet the soyboy you drag around to “social elitest” functions really doesn’t know any better that your cooter has the freshness of 3 day left in the S Florida sun shrimp aroma, he probably thinks you and all of your friends use the same genital wart freshness spray. Too bad that you were not invited to attend the Daytona race, I’m sure some fresh air and sun disinfectant would have done wonders for your complextion and attitude towards all the poor goobers in attendance, not that they would have noticed, they were enjoying their President and his First Lady in attendance.

    After Sundays performance at Daytona, King Richard has to give up his crown.
    All hail King Donald of Trump.
    Take that, MSM.
