Democrats were pounding President Donald Trump for visiting Mount Rushmore to give a speech. Mount Rushmore has been an awesome place that many politicians have visited - such as Bernie Sanders, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton.
But when Trump wants to go there, all of a sudden there's a huge problem because that's the narrative the leftists are pushing nowadays. Almost anything Trump does is criticized. The guy can't even drink water without it turning into memes and jokes.
Regardless, Jason Chaffetz decided it was time to call out the people who were criticizing Trump's visit to Mount Rushmore and remind them that their favorite lefty politicians were there too at some point in their life, but no one ever complained about it then.
You didn't see Democrats across the nation complaining if Hillary Clinton went to Mount Rushmore. Same with Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders. Back then it was just a politician going to a really cool place in America.
Hillary was there back in 2008 and people weren't complaining about it.
Bernie Sanders called it incredible while he was ON CNN.
"“In fact, Bernie Sanders said that Mount Rushmore was America at its best,” Chaffetz told “America’s Newsroom.”
Chaffetz said the accusations that Mount Rushmore symbolized white supremacy had never been brought up when the site was visited by Democrats.
“Then suddenly Donald Trump comes up and gives a patriotic speech in one of the most important monuments in our country and all the Democrats can talk about is how it is supposedly something about white supremacy,” Chaffetz said.
Trump on Saturday vowed to “safeguard our values” from enemies within – leftists, looters, agitators, he said – in a Fourth of July speech packed with all the combativeness of his political rallies."
This is how far left the left has gone.
If Trump shakes hands with Joe Biden, will Joe Biden's supporters shame him for it? Is this how low we are willing to go nowadays?
Everyone needs to relax and let the election take place without ruining everything in between.
