Back in January, Never-Trumpers were sure that he would have faded from the political scene by now. No mere politician could survive such an onslaught of negative publicity, the indictment of his business associates, and the unprecedented retaliation against his personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani.
Yet here we are, with Trump as popular as ever, as proved by his two-hour appearance before an overflow crowd that stretched far outside the Arizona Federal Theater in downtown Phoenix. Trump thrilled with a high-energy performance, and the pro-Trump candidates who preceded him on the same stage were buoyed by rapturous enthusiasm.
The crowd was smart, too, in rejecting Republicans who block the Trump agenda of cleaning up our elections. State Sen. Michelle Ugenti-Rita was thought to be an attractive Republican candidate running for Arizona Secretary of State, but she was loudly booed off the stage for recently defeating an election integrity bill.
Trump himself blasted the do-nothing Republican governor of Arizona, who has obstructed ferreting out the election fraud that switched that state from Trump to Biden. Trump also lambasted critical race theory as “flagrant racism” that is being crammed down “every facet of our society.”
Rep. Nancy Mace has also apparently learned her lesson. Mace is a rising member of Congress who thought she was adapting to shifting winds when she criticized Trump in January. Now she is back on board after being rebuked by many for not remaining loyal to Trump when it mattered most.
Politicians love to employ one simple trick to overcome the grassroots. No matter what scandal they are caught in, they trust that the attention spans of the people will be short enough for them to ride out the storm. Hence, the politicians merely wait for people to get bored complaining about their misdeeds and fall back into line until another scandal breaks. Similarly, the swamp creatures thought they could outlast the “distraction” that Donald Trump created to disrupt their globalist plans. They are quickly learning that Trump is no mere distraction. He is the face of an America First movement that shows no sign of dissipating. Swamp creatures be warned: We the People will not be stopped this time.
