I am a huge Trump supporter, indeed my support of a possible Trump presidential run goes all the way back to the 2011 CPAC where I spearheaded the effort to get Donald Trump to speak at CPAC.
But even I can admit that the Trump presidency was exhausting at times – not that it wasn’t worth it, it was, but let’s not pretend that Trump was a “normal” President. He wasn’t. Indeed, that was by design.
Republicans nominated Trump in 2016 and the country delivered Trump the presidency exactly because he wasn’t promising to be just another normal or conventional President. Trump promised to take a wrecking ball to everything in DC and that’s exactly what he did.
The drama of the Trump presidency was not only by design, it was highly successful. Trump’s non-conventional and unpredictable approach led to unprecedented economic growth, low gas prices, a secure southern border, and peace and prosperity abroad.
CIVILITY! NORMALCY! https://t.co/m4DprQdQaU

So while it may have been exhausting at times, Trump’s presidency was an unquestioned success by almost any policy barometer.
Donald Trump didn’t lose the Presidency because people were unhappy with Trump’s results. He is no longer President as a combination of Democratic shenanigans to change the election rules to benefit their side and Trump fatigue among independents and centrist voters.

Joe Biden ran an almost completely policy-free campaign. Can anyone name a single policy initiative that Biden actually campaigned on? Of course not, Biden’s campaign was completely focused on simply not being Trump.
Instead of running on a series of meaningful policy positions, Biden ran on a series of empty personality platitudes. He promised to be a “uniter,” he promised to return “civility” to politics, he promised a return to the boring political world that existed before Donald J. Trump stepped up and changed everything.
Forget Biden’s litany of policy failures (COVID, inflation, the border, crime, Afghanistan, gas prices, Ukraine, etc), unbelievably Biden can’t even succeed at delivering on his promises of a kinder, gentler, and drama-free White House.
After an unhinged speech by Biden in Georgia, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell – not exactly a firebrand – torched Biden in a speech on the Senate floor:
McConnell noted a year ago the president called for lowering the rhetorical temperature, but now says, “if you disagree with him, you’re George Wallace. If you don’t pass the laws he wants, you’re Bull Connor. And if you oppose giving Democrats … one-party control of the country, well, you’re Jefferson Davis.”
Amazingly enough, even after rebukes from his OWN party for the speech, Biden not only didn’t attempt to walk it back, he absolutely lambasted a reporter who asked him a question about his speech:
“Look what I said. Go back and read what I said and tell me if you think I called anyone who voted on the side of position taken by Bull Connor that they were Bull Connor,” Biden said in response to a questions by a Real Clear Politics reporter during a press conference at the White House, his voice rising. “That is an interesting reading of English. I assume you got into journalism because you like to write.”
The attack on the reporter came in the middle of one of the most bizarre, meandering and incoherent press conferences in history where Biden claimed to have accomplished more in one year than any other President in history, claimed he handled the failures in Afghanistan and in fighting COVID perfectly, and that Republicans hated him more than any other political opponent ever.
New Harvard-Harris/Hill poll of possible 2024 rematch has Trump beating Biden by 46-40. Average of 6 polls taken over the last 11 weeks has Trump +5.4. https://t.co/GuSEE7uAdv

But if you thought that maybe Biden’s blindside of the reporter who asked him about Georgia was just the result of a press conference gone off the rails, you would be wrong.
Just yesterday, Biden, not realizing his mic was still on, referred to Fox News reporter Peter Doocy as a “stupid son of a bitch” for asking him an inconvenient question about inflation.
It is abundantly clear at this point that Joe Biden is just as, if not more, divisive, brash, and arrogant as Trump. The difference is that with Trump the country was more secure, more prosperous, and more safe than at any point in the last few decades.
Sadly, with Joe Biden you get all the drama of the Trump administration without any of the benefits.
