Oh, Brother: Haters Get Mad Over Trump’s Daytona 500 Appearance
NBC White House correspondent Kelly O’Donnell just couldn’t help herself.
“This was an official White House event therefore paid by taxpayers as @realDonaldTrump @FLOTUS attended Daytona 500 today and ‘The Beast’ limo ran a pace car lap around the track,” O’Donnell whined on Twitter.
Yes, we’re sure the money spent running the presidential limo around the track could have been better spent on providing the homeless with transgender sex surgeries, giving iPhones to illegal aliens, or handing out free Morning After pills to liberal arts students, but them’s the breaks. We’re pretty certain that the majority of Americans understand that this is part of the job of the President of the United States, and that showing up at sporting events is nothing new for the occupant of that office.
We know, we know, it’s different because Trump. Just…do you have to be so obscenely obvious about the double standard?
But in the wake of the failed impeachment, Trump’s haters are looking for anything and everything they can find to pierce the golden armor once and for all. Roger Stone. William Barr. Trump’s golf tab. Back to Soleimani for a day. Osama bin Laden’s son. Food stamps. Sanctuary cities. Bullied kids in schools. We’re pretty sure we even saw something about…Trump’s curiosity regarding badgers?
And now, having reached the end of the line, Trump’s appearance at Daytona.
“At a restaurant,” sniffled Katie Hill, the Democrat who popularized the term “throuple” for an uninitiated America. “Trump and a motorcade at the Daytona 500 comes on the TV. I literally don’t know whether to laugh or cry or scream or just sigh. All. We’re gonna go with all.”
Or this monumentally idiotic post from Sarah Reese Jones: “Trump had no public events listed on the presidential schedule for Sunday. The reason why no other president has taken a lap in the presidential limo at Daytona before is that it is illegal. Donald Trump didn’t make history on Sunday. He broke another law.”
We’d really love for Jones to point out the law that specifically forbids driving the “Beast” around a race track. If it’s there, then that tells us that we really do have too many laws. We’re also curious if the statute says anything about taking gratuitous rides with Jerry Seinfeld.
Now, we know that griping about the president wasting taxpayer money is a time-honored American pastime, but to treat Trump’s appearance at Daytona as occasion for emotional meltdowns and criminal charges says much more about his unhinged critics than it does about him.
Forget about the coronavirus; when is the CDC going to come out with a cure for Trump Derangement Syndrome?
