Suggesting that Donald Trump should keep his head down, ignore petty slights and soldier on is like telling a raging bull to cover up his privates; both are unlikely propositions. Nonetheless, it’s good advice. The country elected Mr. Trump because voters were unhappy with the status quo – a sputtering economy, the loss of power and pride to overseas rivals, the unaffordability of healthcare, the inability to stem illegal immigration and the dithering over how to protect the country from terrorism. Outrage from a jilted Left doesn’t make those problems any less real.
One big take-away from James Comey’s testimony before the House Intelligence Committee is that the FBI is investigating whether members of the Trump campaign colluded with Russia. The other? That Americans no longer trust America’s political leaders or intelligence organizations. As the FBI Director answered questions about Russia’s interference in our election and President Trump’s claims that he was wiretapped by President Obama, angry viewers across the political spectrum vented on Twitter and Facebook, charging Comey with lying and retracing the unresolved arguments of last year’s campaign.
