OPINION: The Latest Attack Line Against Trump, and Why It Will Fail

By Jasper Fakkert

Every attack line against President Donald Trump has so far failed.

The narrative that Trump colluded with Russia has fallen apart. Claims that Trump would hurt the economy or America’s position in the world have proven wrong.

America’s economy is booming, and countries have a newfound respect for America.

The latest attack line is mental fitness.

Politicians, media organizations, and pundits are swarming around the new narrative of Trump’s mental health.

The endgame? To incite enough public anger that politicians step in and forcefully remove Trump from office.

The failed Russia collusion narrative had the same goal.

The opening salvo for the latest attack line was given by Michael Wolff, who just published a hit-job in the form of a book in which he attempts to create a picture of an unstable president.

Media organizations, whose corporate owners oppose Trump, are then used to spread the narrative.

This became clear during Thursday’s White House press briefing when a reporter asked Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to respond to allegations that Trump is “mentally unfit to serve as president.”

Sanders rightfully described the suggestion as “disgraceful and laughable.”

“If he was unfit, he probably wouldn’t be sitting there and wouldn’t have defeated the most qualified group of candidates the Republican Party has ever seen,” Sanders went on to say. “This is an incredibly strong and good leader.”

But despite her rebuke, it won’t stop media from pushing the narrative. The UK publication The Times ran a lead story in its Jan. 5 edition with the headline “Trump’s mental health questioned by top aide.”

To use the words of former President Barack Obama: “elections have consequences, and at the end of the day, I won.”

Trump won the presidential elections fair and square. The ongoing attempts to delegitimize his presidency can only be described as a coup attempt to eject him from office.

This latest attempt, however, will also fail.

Thousands of hours of primetime television and news articles dedicated to the unproven Russia collusion narrative were unable to sway people’s opinion of Trump.

With the economy booming, unemployment at its lowest since 2000, lower taxes, and a restoration of America’s posture around the world would anyone really buy into the Trump “mental health” narrative?

Trump has shown himself to be a leader who not only deeply cares about America and its people, but is also able to get things done.

Americans are not as dumb as some politicians and media organizations would like to think.

Instead of moving from one attack line to another—trying to see what sticks—America would greatly benefit from people upholding democracy.

That does not mean that you have to agree with Trump, or any other politician for that matter—that’s why we have elections.

But it does mean that you don’t engage in immoral, and perhaps illegal, activity to unseat an elected president because you don’t like him.
