This will, of course, be scorned as an outrage by the very people preparing to tear down statues of George Washington.
Trump told conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt:
I don’t know if you’ve seen, the polls have been going up like a rocket ship. George Washington would have had a hard time beating me before the plague came in, before the China plague. And then, you know, like every other nation, like other countries, when you get hit, it affects you, and we went down a little bit.
Trump’s problem, and his strength, is that he speaks like a regular person. You could hear him saying “Geroge Washington would have had a hard time beating me” in a bar to the laughs of knowing patrons who understand he is joking.
But the elite in the media lack common sense. Most of them, having spent too much time in Washington, common anything.
I guess you could say that, owning slaves and bearing wooden teeth, Washington might not make the perfect candidate in 2020. I mean, CNN and the Washington Post certainly would not approve of his candidacy, given Washington’s support for traditional values and the original intent of the Constitution.
