Trumprage of the Day: 2017 Edition

It’s a bright new year, but lefties show no signs of abandoning their 2016 game-plan for dealing with Donald Trump: gasping with breathless disapproval at every little thing he does.

Over the weekend, that meant a return to two old standbys: bad tweets and golf.

On New Year’s Eve, Donald Trump (sticking to his own 2016 playbook) fired off an (admittedly asinine) “Happy New Year” on Twitter.

As was the case all last year, major media outlets and public figures rushed to battle stations to register their stern disapproval.

“The tangerine toddler tweets another tantrum,” commented one astute reader on Politico’s story. “The mental illness is only going to get worse as the stress increases.”

Politico also dutifully reported on Trump’s meatspace weekend activities, which involved giving his press detail the slip to go play a round of golf and kicking a man who had written a critical Trump biography off his West Palm course.

This shocking turn of events spawned such insightful commentary as “He has the emotional maturity of a 14-year-old.”

We’ll see what happens when Trump actually takes office, but the unlimited energy leftists seem willing to expend hustling to the moral high ground about every move the president-elect makes shows no sign of abating.

If they stop their bellyaching to think for a moment, the left might realize they’re having more fun with Trump’s presidency than they’ve had in decades. Nothing excites a talking head like the opportunity to do some meaningless posturing, and Trump’s bravado and bluster give them ample material.

Will they calm down and sober up when we start discussing real policy? Or will they keep whiplashing themselves leaping to condemn every errant tweet? We’ll just have to wait and see.
