Paul W. Smith: Living in a parallel universe

Paul W. Smith

“Outta’ My Mind on a Monday Moanin’”

Seriously, is it just me, or are we actually living in a parallel universe, with one group of people, led by the institutional media (called by some the lamestream media), and another group of people “drinking Trump punch,” believing all the metrics, which are pointing in a very positive and optimistic direction for our country since President Trump moved into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue?

Who’s right? The ones drinking the punch or the others drinking the anti-Trump Kool-Aid?

I’m sure I can’t convince one side or the other it might be wrong.

I find it shocking and refreshing that someone who runs for office and gets in starts to do exactly what he or she campaigned on, said what he or she was going to do if elected, and tried to do all those things.

Certainly, there are those who supported Trump who now don’t feel he is moving fast enough to do the things he promised he would do, or that he has twisted or changed some of those things beyond what they thought (or he said) they were going to get.

I’ll grant you that.

But for those people who were absolutely certain Trump had a snowball’s chance in hell of ever becoming president, it’s time to move on.

You have every right to disagree with the president on substantive issues, but the constant nitpicking and “gotcha” reporting and incredible smirking by supposed reporters when they think they got the president again with breaking bad news are not helping their credibility.

Or our country.
