The American liberal Left has learned one thing over the years: the best way to get in the papers is to do something shocking, just to get a reaction. And the benefits from that news coverage are enormous.
Fact is, the more people talk about something, the more likely they are to think that whatever they’re talking about is ‘normal.’
So, if I want to make cursing more ‘normal,’ I just have to do a lot of it in public. Maybe get on video, and be shared by thousands. Or stage a protest, and get Mainstream Media coverage.
Or make a grotesque and blasphemous sculpture, call it ‘art,’ and get people across the US talking about it. Now it’s Normal. I win, and so does the Left.
It’s why two things are refreshing about Trump: one, he’s making good things normal again…and two, what he’s doing below isn’t for the cameras – it’s just what he and his staff do.
It’s nice to see a president praying again.
The Independent Journal Review reports:
President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and members of the Cabinet were praying at Camp David ahead of an important meeting about Hurricane Irma.
The meeting covered the “projected track and potential impact of Hurricane Irma” as it approached Florida.
In a photo just released by The White House, President Donald J. Trump, joined by Vice President Mike Pence and members…
Again, to be clear, this picture isn’t staged. And it’s not like it’s the only picture or story that has come out about the President and his cabinet praying – or having a Bible study together.
We haven’t had this many brazen displays of faith since W. Bush, and even then, many of those were played up for the cameras.

And one thing is clear from the reaction of the radical Left: most liberals don’t know what to do with open displays of faith. As proof, just consider one of the President’s most mocked tweets:
The U.S. Coast Guard, FEMA and all Federal and State brave people are ready. Here comes Irma. God bless everyone!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 10, 2017
The Left really had no idea what to do with this. ‘God bless? Doesn’t he get that there’s a hurricane coming?’
Of course, for those of us that hold faith and Christianity dear, Trump’s words were exactly on point: ‘here comes the struggle, and we’ve done all we can. God bless.’
It only makes sense if you actually believe in God.
And I’m sure that Trump does. So do the people around him.
