Just switch the name from Trump to Obama and you’ve nailed it.

Unfortunate Misunderstanding

Your representation of what progressives want or what Obama was trying to do is a goofy straw-man: ` If one’s bias is for massive entitlements, open borders and uncontrolled immigration and the consequent huge and continuous addition to our national debt, and if one’s bias stems from being a victim of what one views as the juggernaut of capitalism`
That’s not a realistic world view of anyone I’ve ever met or ever read anywhere online, even on lefty sites — it’s an imaginary radical caricature that represents literally no one.

And your pro-Trump description: ` if your bias is for a return to a healthy manufacturing based economic system, a secure border and strong defense` literally describes every single person in the country, left or right, progressive or conservative, Fox viewer or Maddow fan. You need to understand that we all want that end goal — there just may be some disagreement about what specifically some of those words translate to in terms of policy. It’s not obvious, for example, that a giant fence equals a “secure border” or that playing a “strong man” character while alienating allies (as Trump does) will result in “strong defense”. What I’m saying is, in order to actually have a dialog and a working government, you can’t misrepresent and (intentionally?) misunderstand the other side’s viewpoint so completely.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
