by the mainstream media, such as the Australian< a href= https://www.esquire.com/uk/latest-news/a21263520/robert-de-niro-says-fck-trump-during-live-tv-broadcast-receives-standing-ovation/ > feed, as an appropriate and even ethical statement of resistance.The paradoxes continued as simply two days after this berating, Trump made history by meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un and getting him to concur to”complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.”While still undetermined, the unmatched approach peace has been compared to President Richard Nixon’s historic 1972 visit to communist China.What Hollywood elites and the leftist culture they
represent fail to understand is that their puerile habits serves one purpose only: it galvanizes Americans in their anti-establishment convictions by showing the world where
the real opponent lies.Follow Thomas D. Williams on Twitter
