There is a reason why the rest of the world reveres Americans, and it has to do with some intangible sense of toughness that we possess. We’re a nation who dreams big, which means that there’s always more riding on the hope that this experiment will succeed. We win big, sure, but we also lose big, and this is what instills that rough and tumble spirit that embodies us.
We’re the nation that brought the world cowboys and Rosie the Riveter. Heck, we defeated the world’s most powerful army with a bunch of muskets not 300 years ago, just because they taxed us funny.
You don’t want to tangle with America, especially when we’re working though something like this coronavirus pandemic. This is because we come together in times of crisis. We flip that switch quickly, and we shut off the part of our brain that says “well, what about their political affiliations?”. We nip that nonsense in the bud.
Need proof? Here you go:
Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) is offering rare praise for President Donald Trump’s leadership, calling his response to the coronavirus outbreak “incredible.”
“Politics aside, this is incredible and the right response in this critical time,” Omar, a member of the progressive “Squad,” wrote Wednesday evening in response to a list of Trump’s actions in response to the virus and its devastating economic impact. Those actions, shared by the Intercept’s Lee Fang, include “suspending mortgage foreclosures” and “demanding cash payments to Americans.”
For those with a short memory, Omar has long been one of President Trump’s most outspoken critics.
Social media was simply stunned at the statement.
