Why The Left Reminds Me Of Glumly Squidward

I recall watching Spongebob with my 4 year old daughter there was a scene where Mr Krabs sees Squidward whining about his failed life and he replies: “Oh what a baby.” Now fast foward to today and I look at the American left post 2016 election and I am starting to feel like Mr Krabs.mr-_krabs_in_squids_visit-6

When Obama won in 2008, and somehow in 2012 where were all the “right-wing” meltdowns? They didn’t occur. We picked up the pieces and got on with our lives. One of the first things Trump said when he won was “I’m reaching out to you for your guidance and your help so that we can work together and unify our great country.” The left’s response?

Charles Blow from the New York Times about attending a meeting with Trump: “The very idea of sitting across the table from a demagogue who preyed on racial, ethnic and religious hostilities and treating him with decorum and social grace fill me with disgust, to the point of overflowing.”

Is Trump really that bad Charles? Does a person who gives up a billionare lifestyle, spends his own money, agrees to taking a presidential salary of $1, whose trademark slogan is Make Amercia Great Again, and endures amazing abuse from all sides, seem like an evil fascists monster dictator?

Then we have Time magazine contributor Darlena Cunha: “As Donald Trump pulls together his cabinet, advisors and broader administration, two themes are becoming very clear: loyalty to Trump and racism”



Blow also stated that “Trump has preyed on racial hostilities” and Time Magazine published: “One of the themes of Trump’s transition into the White House is racism.”

My message to Blow and Cunha would be that Trump has been in the public eye for the vast majority of his life and has never been called a racist until he ran for president. So who is “preying” on racial hostilities? Trump’s first three picks were 2 women and a black man, and he was awarded the “Ellis Island Award,” back in the eighties.

I find it funny on one side we have Donald Trump. A man who built a massive international business and became billionaire who employs tens of thousands of people. While seeing his country in distress he believes he can do something about it decides he’s going to run for President and wins.

On the other side we have people like Charles and Darlena who are bitter, mean, sore losers who pretend to be political pundits but are no more than left wing koolaid drinkers with axes to grind. I can see Mr. Krabs looking in on these two and all the others individually as they cry and whine, rolling his eyes, each time he says: “Oh what a baby.”
