TRUMP’S EXIT (AND PENCE)

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 14, 2021

         WITH LESS THAN A WEEK BEFORE PRESIDENT TRUMP LEAVES OFFICE WHAT ARE WE TO MAKE OF HIS ONE TERM? YES, HE DID MORE FOR THE COUNTRY IN FOUR YEARS THAN ANY OTHER REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT – FROM TAX CUTS, TO A BOOMING ECONOMY, TO IMMIGRATION, TO THE COURTS AND MIDDLE EAST. BUT HE OBSCURED THESE WITH HIS CORRUPT PERSONALITY, LANGUAGE AND BEHAVIOR TOWARDS OTHERS. HE SNATCHED DEFEAT FROM THE JAWS OF VICTORY AND HIS DEMISE CAME WITH THE CAPITOL RIOTS.

         MIKE PENCE, THE VICE PRESIDENT, DISPLAYED EVERY CHARACTER QUALITY AND POLICY STAND FAVORED BY EVANGELICALS AND YET THEIR LOYALTY WAS LESS TO HIM AND MORE TO TRUMP, A THRICE MARRIED, VULGAR MAN. WHY? I’VE HEARD ALL THE ARGUMENTS AND HAVE AGREED WITH SOME OF THEM. WE’RE NOT ELECTING A PASTOR WAS ONE. NO, BUT WE ARE SHOWING OURSELVES TO EACH OTHER AND THE WORLD WHAT WE THINK OF CHARACTER WHEN WE SAID IT MATTERED WITH BILL CLINTON AND OTHER PRESIDENTS.

         PERHAPS WE SHOULD TALKE A BREAK FROM THE NEWS AND POLITICAL COMBAT AND FOCUS ON THE THINGS GOD CARES ABOUT, NOT WHAT CONSUMES WASHINGTON. WHAT DIFFERENCE WOULD THAT MAKE IN OUR LIVES AND IN OUR NATION’S LIFE? LET’S TRY IT. I’M CAL THOMAS.

    I am disappointed that you blame President Trump for the false narrative that he incited an insurrection. Our country is being told lie after lie about our President and his supporters. There is no question in my mind that the raid on the Capitol was planned and instigated by evil schemes of Antifa and Black Lives Matter. They used the same tactics and were encouraged, supported, and funded by those who desire to destroy our freedoms. It has been clearly confirmed by the swift suppression of freedom of speech. Our President is right that the election was stolen by the Democrats. Joe Biden did not win this election. The evil schemes of the media, Big Tech and the Democrats were obvious to anyone willing to look at the evidence. As Christians, truth is important. Many people (including believers) condemn the way our President often speaks. But when his character is being judged by those who are more guilty than he is, then we, too need to be careful what we say and how we condemn our President and not repeat the lies we are being fed.

    Thank you for listening.

      See today’s lead letter to the editor of The Wall Street Journal. It isn’t just ome speech, but a collection of them leading up to the riot.
