Donald Trump has faced the slings and arrows of a rage-filled “resistance” throughout his presidency, and this week was no exception.
The Democrats’ “formal impeachment inquiry” is on a brief hiatus for the Thanksgiving holiday, with the House Judiciary Committee set to begin another round of hearings next week. At that time, the elected President will once again be the subject of Rep. Jerry Nadler’s wrath after decades of being at odds with one another both 5th Avenue and on Pennsylvania Avenue.
Politically, Trump came here for this very fight. He spent weeks on the campaign trail decrying the Deep State, and telling the nation that only he could truly drain the swamp. Despite the onslaught of Democratic attacks against him, Trump is still seemingly winning this battle.
But in the popular culture the President has found himself, more often than not, the villain. The left-leaning biases of the mainstream media and of Hollywood herself seem to be to blame for this disparity, and those preferences aren’t going anywhere any time soon.
Take Tinsel Town legend Robert Redford, for example.
Actor and filmmaker Robert Redford has accused President Donald Trump of launching a “dictator-like attack” on the values of the United States, declaring that his “monarchy in disguise” must quickly come to an end.
In an op-ed published Tuesday for NBC News’ THINK opinion section, the 83-year-old actor called on leaders on both sides of the political divide to remove Trump from office.
“We’re up against a crisis I never thought I’d see in my lifetime: a dictator-like attack by President Donald Trump on everything this country stands for,” wrote Redford.
Redford is not only taking a pot-shot at POTUS, however, but also at the enormous swath of Americans who voted for him in 2016 and continue to support him today. Trump did not take power, he earned it, and failing to recognize the difference is a dangerous bit of division.
