I’m a 50 something Trump supporter, wife, and mother living in Michigan, and after only three weeks into the Wuhan coronavirus lockdown, I’m tired.
I’m not tired of waking up every morning and seeing my girls playing card games in between homework. I’m not tired of watching my husband do things around the house he’s been promising to do for years. I’m not even tired of watching the 7th season of The Office with my kids for the fifth time. I’m certainly not tired of smelling homemade bread coming from the bread maker I thought we retired over 20 years ago.
Here’s what I am tired of:
I’m tired of watching our president, who is fighting so hard to keep Americans safe from an invisible enemy, being bullied by a hostile media during his daily coronavirus press briefings. Instead of highlighting new and vital information shared by President Trump and his highly-qualified coronavirus task force team, the media focuses on “gotcha” moments. They edit comments made by President Trump to make him appear incompetent and uncaring. As President Trump’s approval ratings continue to climb, networks, whose ratings are soaring during Trump’s press briefings, are considering not airing them at all.
I’m tired of elected officials attacking President Trump, suggesting he’s a “racist” for shutting down our borders to China, and in the next breath, criticizing him for not doing enough to control the spread of coronavirus in America. One of his main sources of criticism was Michigan governor, Gretchen Whitmer. Last week, while anxious Michiganders were losing their jobs, watching their bank accounts dry up, and their retirement savings disappear, our governor decided to pick a fight with President Trump during an interview on MSNBC. Whitmer attacked the federal government, accusing them of “not taking this [coronavirus pandemic] seriously.” She called President Trump’s response to the coronavirus “mind-boggling.” Later, when asked about her criticism of Trump, Governor Whitmer claimed she wasn’t looking for a fight, she was simply looking for help. If Governor Whitmer was looking for help, she sure has a strange way of asking. After her interview, FEMA revealed that Whitmer had not yet requested a major disaster declaration for the coronavirus in Michigan, which would allow Michigan residents and businesses to begin the process of receiving assistance from FEMA. While Whitmer was damaging President Trump’s reputation among Michigan voters by accusing him of not acting to help Michiganders with the health crisis, she had personally failed to take the necessary steps towards obtaining federal aid for her state.
Whitmer threw gasoline on the fire, when during an interview on WWJ radio, she alleged, with no evidence to support her claim, that because of her criticism of Trump, the state of Michigan is having trouble getting vendors to deliver necessary medical equipment. Whitmer said, “What I’ve gotten back is that vendors with whom we’ve procured contracts — They’re being told not to send stuff here to Michigan”.
On Sunday, when Whitmer was pressed by CNN’s Jake Tapper to reveal the names of vendors who are being told not to send supplies to Michigan, she refused to verify her claim, saying she didn’t want to “out the vendors.” Whitmer changed gears, claiming several states are competing against the federal government for medical equipment needed to prevent and treat COVID-19, suggesting that her situation is not unique.
I’m tired of Democrat women attacking President Trump. When he dares to defend himself, they suddenly recoil and become victims. In a scathing article that appeared in the Detroit Free Press, Mitch Albom tore into President Trump defending “victim” Gretchen Whitmer’s unfounded claim. Albom jumped to the governor’s defense, accusing Trump of being disrespectful. He lashed out at President Trump, calling him a “baby in a suit” while criticizing him for blaming China for their handling of the coronavirus. “Three years of insults, lies, and embarrassing statements haven’t changed people’s minds about this president,” Albom wrote. He wasn’t talking about how Democrat lawmakers and their allies in the media have insulted, lied, or made embarrassing statements about President Trump—no, he cleverly turned the tables. He turned the feud that Governor Whitmer started with President Trump into a criticism of Trump and his supporters.
We’re tired of the attacks on our president, and frankly, we don’t give a darn what the media says anymore. We know the truth. Trump may be direct, he may be harsh, and he may even pull out the brass knuckles on occasion, but we’re okay with that. We knew when we elected Donald J. Trump that he was a fighter, we just had no idea how difficult the fight would be, or how much pain his opposition was willing to inflict on our nation.
Who could’ve ever imagined that in 2020 the media would still believe they have the ability to change the outcome of our 2016 election?
In 2016, Trump campaigned on finding jobs for the forgotten man and woman. President Trump has given Americans real hope in the way of jobs, especially here in the state of Michigan. After only 3 1/2 years in office, Trump’s economy has exploded, and unemployment numbers for Black, Hispanic, Asian and female workers are at an all-time low— and then, despite his best efforts to shut down travel between the U.S. and China, the coronavirus made its way to America, causing our incredible economy to come to a screeching halt.
I’m tired, but I’m praying that God will bless President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence with good health, wisdom, and the strength they need to keep Americans safe, despite the unimaginable obstacles that have been placed in their way.
