We don’t even need to turn to Liberal or Democrat leaders to find criticism of Trump; his own party is saying it for us! With George W. Bush, his Neocon base was behind him 100%, giving us lefties an uphill fight. With Trump, we point and say “he sucks” and the nearest republican chimes in “You don’t know the half of it!”
This time it’s the National Review, founded by William F. Buckley in 1955. The Review rips Donald Trump as a whiny weakling. The journal further goes on to rip the myth of Trump, the successful businessman:
“He has had a middling career in real estate and a poor one as a hotelier and casino operator but convinced people he is a titan of industry. He has never managed a large, complex corporate enterprise, but he did play an executive on a reality show.”
And of course they chime in with Peggy Noonan’s recent savaging of Trump.
This is the part where we Liberals get to say “I told you so!” Just look what happens if we consider Trump without his political affiliation. If Trump were the most pinko Liberal Democrat in the world, the following would still be highlights of his unfitness to serve:
Firing James Comey, Preet Bharara, and Sally Yates, and threatening to finagle his way to firing Mueller: Even Richard Nixon could tell you that firing the people investigating you never works out well.
Empty bluffs and threats: We always turn back to tweets like…
Ask Sally Yates, under oath, if she knows how classified information got into the newspapers soon after she explained it to W.H. Counsel.

James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!

When people you already fired are scheduled to testify before the Senate, that’s the time to shut up. What did these tweets accomplish? They strengthen the case against you for obstruction of justice, expose you to charges of witness tampering, and make you look guilty as hell.
No support for his own party: You just can’t berate the House and Senate for losing afterwards when you did nothing to help them accomplish your goal. As the old saying goes, “Don’t air your dirty laundry in public.” When you have the majority in all branches of government, that’s the time to show the world that everything’s running like clockwork. Even a middle manager at Taco Bell knows that if you must chastise a team member, you do it privately and behind closed doors.
Blustering and blowing up in the face of adversity: This, more than anything, shows the world how weak you are. Here’s a fun test – what’s the most upset photo you can find of Obama? Probably this one:
That’s it, that’s as close as Obama came to losing his cool. A face that says “This is an unfortunate setback, but I’m confident we can come back from it.” That’s a strong leader. Compare the galaxy of photos (we need not repost them here) of Trump raging, raving, screaming, cussing, throwing tantrums, having fits, and acting like a spastic nutcase. Ever heard of the expression “never let them see you sweat”? Trump shows the world that he has skin thinner than an onion. Poking him is as good as a haymaker punch.
Weak. No matter what party Trump is from, he adds up to a paper tiger.
