There are far too many in the press and in the progressive punditry world that regard Trump as some kind of Al Capone, who continualy manages to escape prosecution while being an obvious criminal (to them). As far as they are concerned, if they can plop his ass in jail for unpaid parking tickets, it's good enough, because after all - they got Al Capone on tax evasion.
And I really hate to say this, but this is a very similar stance the right took of Clinton - BILL Clinton. There's no question in my mind that Hillary is a crook, through and through, and I've believed that since '92. With Bill, the right was content with doing ANYTHING to get him, because the damned guy was just too slippery.
But again, in fairness - this is what they said of Reagan. "Teflon Ron" the left called him. Nothing sticks.
I've just never seen such an all out war to take down a man of any crime they can conjure up. We have at least a handful of progressives who have said openly, it doesn't even matter if he committed ANY CRIME at all.
Probably the biggest complaint is J6. They believe he orchestrated it. Or encouraged it. Or somehow incited it. None of those hold any credibility based on anything resembling facts or evidence, but it's common on the left to go all "post hoc ergo propter hoc" - "this happened after this, therefore this happened BECAUSE of this".
"Lottery in June, corn be heavy soon". For those familiar with Shirley Jackson. It IS however the same kind of reasoning that had people doing human sacrifice.
I am sorry, but there's been a pattern in the press and among the Dems and the people who just parrot their obviously invented pronouncements (because I believe that THEY - the Dem politicians - do not believe it, but know their constituency WILL). - and it works like this:
Crazy persons do something crazy because of politics - if he's right wing, he was guided/inspired/influenced - OR INSTRUCTED BY - right wing politicans to do their crazy thing.
If he's LEFTIE - nah, he's just crazy, nothing to see here.
Which is why when a bunch of GOP leaders are shot at by a crazy gunman, no Democrat leader is held "responsible" for his enraged outburst. Nobody, no press, nothing points to vicious remarks by Dems "inspiring" the gunman. Nope. He's just crazy.
Donald Trump says the election was stolen and a band of nitwits break into the Capitol AFTER being told by Trump to protest peacefully - oh no, not only did he incite the crowd, but he PLANNED it.
These are just two stories juxtaposed - but I could fill this page with such. An utter lunatic hippie who walks around naked, flies a BLM flag outside his hovel - busts into Pelosi's home - and it becomes part of a vast right wing conspiracy.
