Mike Pence is a classy guy, and he’s been a politician long enough to understand how to turn Democratic operatives with bylines inside out. He did that to George Stephanopoulos, a longtime Clinton Crime Family surrogate and Clinton Foundation donor. And he did it with ease.
Democrats are having a fit because Donald Trump spoke to the democratically elected leader of Taiwan.
There’s been an ongoing struggle over Taiwan since World War II. China claims Taiwan is part of China, but the Taiwanese reject that and are in fact a democratic society. The American government under Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, and under George Bush, have avoided confrontations with China over Taiwan.
Donald Trump isn’t afraid of a diplomatic confrontation with China. So when Taiwan’s democratically elected president called Mr. Trump to congratulate him on his victory over the Clinton Crime Family he accepted the call and spoke with her.
Let me note that Hillary Clinton and her sycophants have been screeching for a decade that Hillary was going to be the first woman to break the glass ceiling as a “President.” They obviously hate women and have no concept of history. Golda Meyer was a transformational leader in Israel, Margaret Thatcher stood with Ronald Reagan and brought down the Soviet Union. And then there’s the current president of Taiwan, who happens to be a woman.
At any rate, George Stephanopoulos was planning on having a field day beating up on Mike Pence over President-elect Trump’s telephone conversation.
“They know he’s going to be out there advancing America’s interests first.”
Unlike our current president.
And then there was the coup de grace.
“It’s a little mystifying to me that President Obama can reach out to a murdering dictator in Cuba in the last year and be hailed as a hero for doing it, and President-elect Donald Trump takes a courtesy call from the democratically-elected leader of Taiwan, and it’s become something of a controversy.”
