I’ve never been a fan of Harry Reid. I thought he was a low life. He had a real slimy life before he became a politician out in Nevada, and he was a slimy politician once he got to Washington DC. He was a liar and a thief, and still is a thief to this day.
The guy lives about three hours northwest of me in a little town called Searchlight. It’s a dot on the map, and he basically owns it. Oh, he calls Las Vegas his home…but Searchlight is about an hour south of Vegas.
But when it comes to Donald Trump, Harry Reid is right on the money.
He said over the past weekend on CNN, that he thinks the Democrats would be wise not to underestimate Donald Trump. Calling him a “very, very, very smart man”, where once he thought he was an idiot, I really think that Harry Reid in his old age, understands what makes Trump tick.
First of all, Trump doesn’t just wade into arguments. He argues on his own terms. You have to wade in his waters, not the other way around, and that’s what the Democrats are doing with impeachment. You don’t think Trump enjoys all of the talk about impeachment? It’s a friggin’ campaign issue for the Republicans as much if not more-so than with the Democrats! And he knows that every single time the Democrats hold hearings, try to impeach, scream about something Trump has done wrong, only to be proven wrong, it hurts them. It hurts their credibility. And IF Donald Trump ever does do anything wrong…and let’s face it…ALL presidents do something wrong. You can’t make decisions at that level over four years, or eight years and not make huge errors, he’s going to be able to hide it under their Chicken Little screaming.
Harry Reid understands that as well.
What I find remarkable is that Harry Reid couldn’t figure out when he was Majority Leader in the Senate, why invoking the nuclear option of doing away with 60 votes for confirmation wasn’t going to lead to a Republican take over of the judicial branch of government…a branch the Democrats had held on to and built up as theirs for decades. Harry Reid was the guy that actually ruined that. Sure, he allowed Bobo Obama to pack the court…at least the lower federal courts. But it also allowed Donald Trump to do the same. Trump has appointed 282 judges to various federal benches in the past three years, and there are 154 more that are either in the works or will open up very soon. That’s over 430 federal judges that Donald Trump will be appointing in his first term, and they’ll all get approved thanks to Harry Reid!
But to get back to my original point. Donald Trump may not be a genius. He may not be America’s greatest president. But he’s a smart guy, who graduated from a pretty prestigious business school, has bright kids, and is nobody’s fool. I don’t always agree with him, but you have to give him that. And Democrats like Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler that think they are smarter than Trump would be wise to step back and really analyze this guy!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
