Liberals bitter over Trump's beautiful, poetic speech

NBC also proclaimed that the "fact-checkers" would crawl all over Trump's speech, but maybe they should check Todd's facts. Since when is the fact that some immigrants commit crimes "mythical"?

Even almost 24 hours later, ABC merely repeated Democratic statements and refused to question Democrat behavior. Cecilia Vega quoted Pelosi in full screech against Trump: "'He brings tears to the eyes of the Statue of Liberty and instills fear in the hearts of people who are concerned about the Dreamers.' The White House may have been hoping, David, that speech would unite Congress, but those reviews from the Democrats are in: They are not on board."

Inside the media bubble, the Democrats can do no wrong. Nothing they said around this speech was too extreme. No one questions whether their behavior might turn voters against them.

The public sees through this, too. The media are upset their approval ratings are so low and blame Trump. They never seem to take any responsibility and evaluate the craven partisanship of their own "news."

The public saw a side of Donald Trump it heartily liked. It saw the Democrats in Washington for what they are. It saw the media as an extension of that party.

That's three home runs for Donald Trump in one night.
