    Yes. It's now the talking points of the Left from liberals to fringe-dwellers. They've also started to delegitimize the 2020 election...you know, just in case their latest insurance policy of impeachment doesn't pay off.
    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    Trumpism reveals itself with its accusations.

    But is it true?

    I was reminded yesterday by an old New Yorker that Jerry Nadler has been a lifelong foe of The Donald, from his days renovating the Central Park ice rink.

    From the NY Post:
    Trump’s reopening of Central Park’s Wollman Rink in 1986 was a defining moment for him — and for many New Yorkers, a hell of a first impression.

    The Wollman Rink, opened in 1949, was a beloved Manhattan postcard icon. It appeared in countless movies, including “Love Story.” But it was falling apart, and then-Mayor Ed Koch closed it in 1980.

    The city promised to reopen it by 1985. But Koch’s incompetent commissioners and contractors let the job run $12 million over its original $4.7 million budget, and by 1986, the finish line was nowhere in sight.

    Enter Trump. The young Trump Tower developer was known more for self-promotion and for an ugly, name-calling feud with Koch over tax abatements and zoning rules.

    In June 1986, Trump brashly offered to reopen the rink before Christmas. “If Koch doesn’t like this offer,” Trump said, “then let him have the same people who have built it for the last six years do it for the next six years.”

    Koch held his nose and gave Trump the keys. Trump got the ice rink reopened to the public on Nov. 1. Maybe any able construction company could have done the same. But Trump’s success was a tonic to a crime-torn, crumbling city that needed some good news. It showed how private enterprise could handily whip government bureaucracy.

    Wollman was a tiny project. But, unlike disputes over taxes and zoning, it told a story everyone could understand. It made Trump a hero, at least for a time. And more than any of his skyscrapers, it lent him the “can-do” reputation that propelled him into the White House.
    Koch, Nadler too, opposed Trump on this and lost badly. To me that recollection was an Aha! moment.


    "I was not elected to do small things or shy away from big problems.” —Donald Trump.

    "I think you called me a liar on national TV." —Elizabeth Warren. "Well, duh." —Bernie Sanders, shoulda said.

    "The way I see it, there's always, c'mon, there's always money. It's there." —Elizabeth Warren, explaining socialism.

    “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.... We really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” —Saikat Chakrabarti, then AOC's Chief of Staff.

    "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them." —CNN's Don Lemon, showing how to stop demonizing people.
