You have to understand that one of the main drivers of the establishments seething hatred of Trump is not just that he beat them all.
Yes they hate him because he took on both establishment parties and kicked their butts.
First he took down Jeb Bush and the rest of those hapless and hopeless candidates. Then he went to work on Hillary Clinton. It was bad, how badly he beat her, but it would have been worse if it was crazy Bernie or Liz Warren.
Trump is simply better at the game
Remember when he came out and was going to make a huge statement about Obama’s birth certificate? The media was whipped into a frenzy and ran to get the best spot for the press conference where they just knew Trump would break big news.
All the networks were there – all live and all were captivated, waiting. The backdrop was no accident – it was his new Trump hotel in Washington.
While the camera’s fixed on his magnificent hotel for what seemed like forever, Trump came out and embarrassed the media.
He made a quick comment about Obama being American and then took the media on an extended tour of his new hotel.
If we beautiful and the media fell for it and he got a free 30 minute commercial on all the major networks.
So as the media followed his every move in Hawaii and with Obama and Bush complaining that his business interests are creating a conflict for him, Trump did what Trump does best.
Hit them all back hard.
As Trump was driving to the airport, with the press in tow, he made a surprise stop.
According to Newsmax, he stopped at the Trump International Hotel Waikiki.
He got out of limo, walked into the hotel and met some of his employees and then left.
The establishment howled – “what about the emoluments clause,” “how can you do promote your own hotel while President,” and all the other nonsense they hurl at Trump on a daily basis.
A weaker man like Obama would be cowed and would fall in line quickly. But not Trump, he does it his way with no apologies.
Sarah shut down all the whiners saying simply, “Trump wanted to say hello and thank you to the employees for all their hard work.”
Which takes us back to the main drivers of Obama’s and Bush’s resentment for Trump. Yes he beat them all, but more importantly they are all jealous of him.
He built a fantastic company. He doesn’t owe anyone anything. He has the courage to do what he wants, even while living in that media fishbowl, without worrying about polls or what the media thinks.
These are things Bush and Obama always wanted but never could grasp. And they are jealous. Share if you agree.
