There hasn’t been any real decorum in the American political scene for some time, thanks to Donald Trump’s completely and utter evisceration of the status quo after his election in 2016.
And this isn’t a bad thing. In fact, this is precisely what Donald Trump was elected to do: Shake Washington DC above his head until all of their tricks and trinkets spill out onto the floor. Donald Trump willingly started a war with “the deep state”, and has been weathering the storm ever since.
So, predictably, perceived slights against the President are often unduly celebrated by those who are invested in seeing him fail. This includes James Carville, a longtime Democratic strategist who appeared on MSNBC to gloat over the news.
“You would expect me to say this, but this is one of the best days that any presidential campaign could possibly have, and this story fits right into it while people around the country believe, and apparently correctly, they are schmucks out there working, paying taxes, you know, doing what they can to make ends meet, and then people take these write-offs,” he added. “If the story’s to be believed, he gives his daughter money that then he writes that off. I mean, it’s just more and more coming and more and more analysis. Who knows where this is going to end, but I can’t imagine it ends in a very pretty place for President Trump. I really can’t.”
We can only imagine that Monday night will bring more of the same to the mainstream media.
