New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin reckons it’s hard to be a Trump supporter, which, by the way, he is.
The president rarely makes it easy on the faithful, often testing his tribe through errant word and deed. Even on his best days, he manages to insert a hurdle or two or 10.
The James Comey affair is the perfect example. On substance, Trump made the absolute right call. Comey had to go, with his blunders on the Hillary Clinton case reason enough. And there were many others.
Yet being right isn’t enough in Washington, and being Trump raises the bar exponentially. The Democratic left and the media (I know, that’s redundant) get out of bed ready to pounce.
They don’t need facts to unleash their volcanic hatred of him. A juicy rumor and an anonymous source will suffice. Any mistake sparks talk of impeachment.
Yes, indeed, it’s hard to figure Trump out. You’d think he’d have realized by now that he’s courting disaster, carrying on about stuff the way he does. Maybe he’s just blunder-prone by nature.
