Michael Medved: Whatever Happened to “The Party of the Little Guy”?

Marijuana

Democrats have always identified themselves as “the party of the little guy,” but in 2016 they lost tens-of-millions of aggrieved, out-of-luck voters to a boisterous billionaire named Donald Trump. Why? Because of the party’s self-destructive obsession with race and gender. The real dividing line between families that are forging ahead and those who are falling behind is based more on economics and education, rather than race and gender.

A white, male high school dropout in Appalachia is hardly privileged, while a black woman like Michelle Obama, with degrees from Princeton and Harvard, is hardly oppressed. Trump won white males without college degrees by a 3-1 margin and he even won non-college white women by nearly two-to one.

It’s dangerous to talk about “white male privilege” when the lived experience of so many white males hardly feels privileged. In fact, many working-class whites feel gypped and expect a better deal from President Trump.

Michael Medved: A Lesson from Lincoln on President’s Day

Marijuana

On the eve of Civil War, Abraham Lincoln concluded his First Inaugural Address with two sentences of incandescent eloquence: “Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.”

These words remind us that Lincoln—whose legacy we honor on President’s Day—became one of the greatest English prose writers in history, despite his background as an impoverished frontier boy with only a year of schooling. His rise constitutes one of the American miracles that should inspire anyone willing to look with open eyes at our uniquely blessed past.

Lincoln followed the approach later recommended by Bismarck: Listen for God’s footsteps marching through history, then grab his coattails and hang on.

May we see God’s design for America as we celebrate President’s Day.

Trump Insults Press, Press Infuriated

Jake Tapper went so far as to say “You legitimately won the presidency. Now get to work and stop whining about it” (The Hill).  From the Associated Press:  Critics of President Donald Trump saw in his news conference a combative, thin-skinned chief executive who continues to blame the media for the controversies roiling his administration. His supporters saw something else: A champion of Middle America who is taking on the establishment and making good on his campaign promises to put the country first (AP).  From ABC News: …the press conference showed the president willing to take on the press in a head-on confrontation — the man we saw almost every day on the campaign trail — calling reporters “out of control” and “so dishonest.” The appearance showed how the president is still very much in campaign mode, bringing up his Electoral College victory and his defeat of Hillary Clinton months after the November election (ABC News). From the much abused CNN: During his remarks, Trump made several statements about the media that were either untrue or misleading (CNN). From the Wall Street Journal:  Political reporters are bewildered by his unconventional style, but the spectacle was Mr. Trump at his Trumpiest (WSJ).  A look at some of the insults (Newsbusters).  Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski Tweeted “This feels like a fake presidency” (Mediaite).  Ben Shapiro’s Ten Takeaways (Daily Wire).  Hugh Hewitt encourages all to not panic over Trump (Washington Post).
