Today's Commentary: Losers -- Trump As A Leader -- Pleading the Fifth
President Trump weighed in on the Manchester attack this week, saying he will not call these murderers "monsters" because they would like that term. Instead, he will call them what they are: "Losers…evil losers." He added, "The terrorists and extremists and those who give them aid and comfort must be driven out from our society forever. This wicked ideology must be obliterated." It's a relief finally to have a leader who will say that, but it takes the resolve of the people and the officials in the nations that are under attack to stand up and do something about it, other than apologizing for their own culture. In other words, if you have a pack of "known wolves" in your house, why would you let them remain there?
Trump As A Leader
By Mike Huckabee
After visiting Saudi Arabia and Israel, President Trump finished his tour of the homelands of three major religions by meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican. He then went on to meet with the President and Prime Minister of Italy before heading on to Brussels for a G7 summit.
One of the things that Trump has accomplished on this trip is to silence the critics who said he wasn't ready for prime time on the foreign stage; that he lacked the experience to do statecraft. No wonder liberal media outlets tried so hard to ignore this trip. Look at what's happened already: he's made more headway than the last President did in eight years. He's warmed relations with leaders with whom our relations had grown frosty. He's been the toast of the town in places where that's very tough, like Riyadh. He's warmed the relationship with the Pope, which has been a little tense over the past few months. He's shown that he has the ability to be a leader who shows strength and, as liberals like to say, "speaks truth to power," but who is also willing to work with other people on common goals, even people who've criticized him.
Maybe all the unwarranted attacks on Trump served a purpose after all, in helping him to develop such a thick skin. We've seen what comes from having a thin-skinned leader who refused to reach out to those who disagreed with him. Having someone who just shrugs off criticism and gets down to work is a refreshing change.
Pleading the Fifth
By Mike Huckabee
It was reported that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who is accused of falsely stating he received no payments from Russian sources for speeches, may invoke his Fifth Amendment right and refuse to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee. If so, the Committee's ranking Democrat, Sen. Mark Warner, told CNN that he is not ruling out contempt charges against Flynn.
Of course, a former Administration official taking the Fifth before Congress would be outrageous and unprecedented (ahem, "Lois Lerner"), as would having an official held in contempt of Congress (cough, "Eric Holder"), so that would certainly be grounds for impeachment, right? Or is that only okay if the people who do it are Democrats who DON'T resign or get fired, but are kept on the job?
