To The Daily Sun,
E. Scott Cracraft's columns are always partisan and good for a laugh. In his March 21 column he says he was bullied as a child, like almost everyone else. But Cracraft can't get over it. So, he spends his time getting back by bullying, and supporting others who bully his political opponents.
And, if you don't agree with Cracraft, he suggests that you aren't a person of good will. Without being violent, it's hard to be a bigger bully than to say that about someone.
Cracraft says not only is President Trump a bully, but he has a "sociopathy and a narcissistic personality." Is Cracraft qualified to make that claim? He doesn't advertise a medical degree. Cracraft, like other leftists, is simply trying to make you terrified of Trump, not for rational reasons, but for their own political purposes.
Cracraft's concerns about the bullying are very selective. I don't recall his concerns with Presidents Obama's and Clinton's bullying that really hurt people physically, financially, and mentally.
I don't recall Cracraft complaining when President Obama told his followers to get in the faces of his political opponents. Or when Obama prematurely, and without evidence, attacked the police. Or when Obama forced Obamacare on the American people against the wishes of the vast majority, caused millions to lose their doctors and satisfactory health insurance, drove up insurance premiums and deductibles, making insurance expensive but almost useless for many people; destroyed lots of full-time jobs with benefits; jeopardized senior citizens' health care by taking $700 billion from Medicare; or when his IRS and other agencies harassed his political opponents, etc.
Was Cracraft concerned with President Clinton's extensive sexual abuse of women, including a credible rape charge, a $850,000 sexual abuse settlement, the president taking advantage of a young, low-level employee, and many others? Few leftists, who complain about Trump's offensive words caught on tape 10 years ago, ever criticized President Clinton's actions.
I never heard Cracraft complain about Hillary Clinton's bullying and threatening her husband's sexual assault victims, or the bullying and lies that caused an unknown filmmaker to be imprisoned to cover up her and President Obama's malfeasance resulting in the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi.
True, Trump, like Obama and Clinton did, criticizes the media, but can any president really bully the media which has hundreds of outlets, thousands of reporters/commentators, and a 24 hour news cycle? President Clinton complained of the influence of a single radio personality. Trump hasn't wire-tapped reporters and threatened their families like Obama.
Leftists falsely claim that Trump bullies immigrants and refugees. But Trump hasn't threatened or bullied a single law-abiding legal resident. It's not bullying to enforce, or promise to enforce, the laws passed by Congress. It's the president's job.
However, just because Cracraft is a hypocrite doesn't mean that Trump isn't a bully. But, while Obama's and Clinton's bullying actually hurt people, Trump's bullying has harmed no one. The only evidence of Trump's bullying is his big bark, not his bite.
There are powerful, entrenched special interests which benefited greatly over the last eight years while most Americans suffered. Cracraft supports those special interests, and he and they want to stop Trump to protect their own personal interests.
Trump didn't run for president to become rich, powerful, or famous. Being president will cost him many millions of dollars and risks the lives of his family. He did it because he saw the corrupt Washington establishment that serves itself at the expense of the vast majority of Americans, and Trump wants every American to prosper.
If you read Cracraft's columns, just understand that his attacks on President Trump are intended to hinder Trump's efforts to create good jobs and more opportunities for all Americans, provide better educations for America's children, enable a better healthcare system with affordable coverage for all, provide safer communities, and provide strong American leadership to make a safer, more peaceful, world.
