Liberals are shaking with fear tonight. That’s a good thing.
Well, actually I think the fear and OUTRAGE are fake, like everything about liberals.
It’s actually pretty funny watching liberals demand that Donald Trump act like a cuck the way so many American politicians act.
On Friday, Trump spoke on the telephone with Taiwan’s president, something no U.S. president or president-elect has done since 1979.
That’s a big problem, because ever since the Jimmy Carter administration the United States has officially recognized the People’s Republic of China — the very large country with its capital in Beijing — as the only fully legal government of China.
Not only that, the Trump transition issued a cheerful official statement about the phone call, lauding “the close economic, political, and security ties … between Taiwan and the United States. President-elect Trump also congratulated President Tsai on becoming President of Taiwan earlier this year.”
All of that was taboo under normal U.S. diplomatic practice – and virtually certain to enrage China. (Ari Fleischer, a White House press secretary under George W. Bush, noted on Twitter that he wasn’t even allowed to refer to the government “of” Taiwan; he had to call it the government “on” Taiwan.) And China is, of course, a considerably more important country to the United States – economically, politically and militarily – than Taiwan.
It wasn’t clear how the telephone call came about. It’s possible that President Tsai Ing-wen just got lucky, and that Trump and his staff made a rookie mistake.
But the Taipei Times reported that the call was “arranged by [Trump’s] Taiwan-friendly campaign staff after his aides briefed him on issues regarding Taiwan.”
Every day of the Trump presidency means that we get to wake up with a smile on our faces, knowing that Trump is going to stump the liberal media again. They never get it. They jump at the bait and slander our guy. At which point Americans shake their heads at the stupidity of the press.
