Tears on the Senate floor have not necessarily moved the American people, Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said Wednesday on Newsmax TV.
Democrat lawmakers delivered emotional presentations on both Tuesday and Wednesday, the first two days of the Senate trial following the House’s impeachment of former President Donald Trump. Trump stands accused of inciting the protesters who rioted at and overran the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.
“You have this emotion-based argument driven by the Democrats,” in-studio guest Gaetz told host Greg Kelly on “Greg Kelly Reports.” “And while they’re tearing up each and every day, I don’t know that they’re moving the American people.
“The American people would probably like to be the subject of the focus of their government rather than seeing the Democrats obsessed with the former president.”
Although he questioned the approach of Trump attorney Bruce Castor’s opening remarks Tuesday, which many critics and observers called light on constitutional law and heavy on folksy appeal, Gaetz said the Democrats have overreached with their own efforts.
“We are watching as the Democrats are now expanding their indictment beyond just President Trump to his supporters, to the people who showed up in Washington, D.C., not to do any harm, not to breach the Capitol, but to express their displeasure with an election that they believe should have been run with tighter standards,” Gaetz said.
“I do think President Trump’s defense has missed the opportunity to define the president’s concerns about election integrity as entirely proper when you have officials in some of these states unilaterally departing from the law.”
After saying “never take your position in any trial for granted,” Gaetz nevertheless sounded a note of confidence about the trial’s outcome.
“He’s not going to be convicted,” Gaetz said. “There’s not going to be some action against Trump here. This is all about the Democrats having to obsess over Trump, because they don’t really have an agenda to help regular Americans.”
Well said, Congressman Gaetz.
The Far Left Democratic Party has a history of underestimating the intelligence of average American Voters, especially those of us living between the coasts, in what they call “Flyover Country” or what we call “The Heartland”.
President Trump was not a Goering, Mussolini, Hitler, or Svengali.
He did not have to use some sort of hypnotism to make 74 million American Voters vote for him.
We all saw what that brash New York Businessman did for the country which he and we love.
He had America’s Economy soaring before the Chinese released their coronavirus from that lab in Wuhan Province.
And, even after that happened, he refused to give up, pushing for the pharmaceutical companies to develop a vaccine at record speed.
Unlike the professional politicians who look down on us from Capitol Hill, Trump actually cares for the American People.
You see, Gentle Readers, Trump has always been a “people person”.
He is not, and never has been, a professional politician.
And, he refuses to play by THEIR rules.
That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.
As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.
“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.
He knew that the only way to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to be out among them, and speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.
Just as President Trump did when he went on a “Thank You” Tour and as he did with his Daily Tweets to the American People..
The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.
Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being used by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, the before-mentioned Ronald Wilson Reagan.
While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved effective for both men.
Regardless of what Democrats up on Capitol Hill and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media tell everyone who will listen to them, Trump helped and inspired a lot of his countrymen, a way of governing which continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans,
As far as the speech on January 6th, 2021 goes, House Managers serving as prosecutors have focused on Trump’s comments during the rally urging his supporters to “fight like hell” and urging them to go to the Capitol.
But Trump also urged the crowd to “peacefully and patriotically make your voices heard.”
For the Democrats to intentionally edit that out has let the American Voting Public know that this is not a Constitutional Impeachment, it is a vendetta designed to separate Donald J. Trump from the voters and make sure than he cannot run again in 2024.
It is also meant as a warning to all of us “Deplorables” to “sit down, shut up, and know your rule”.
Unfortunately for the Democrats, Former President Donald J. Trump will be acquitted and…well…we Americans in “Flyover Country” are not very good at taking orders from those who were sent to Washington to SERVE US.
Until He Comes,
