Trump Doubles Down, Defiantly Refuses To Cave To Public Shaming By The Democrats

Last night I posted about how Hillary Clinton, fellow Democrats, the MSM – and those in the Republican establishment – were collectively attempting to shame Trump into apologizing for not challenging a supporter who accused President Obama of being a Muslim. (Fools that they are, as if Trump can be shamed into doing anything!) Anyway, this morning, it is clear that Trump did not follow Hillary’s directive to sit in the corner like a naughty boy and think about the poor choice he had made. Instead of being duly chastised, knuckling under and playing by the left’s rules, Trump refused to cave to their demands, as well as showing that he knows how to keep his supporters happy:

Am I morally obligated to defend the president every time somebody says something bad or controversial about him? I don’t think so!

If someone made a nasty or controversial statement about me to the president, do you really think he would come to my rescue? No chance!

Christians need support in our country (and around the world), their religious liberty is at stake! Obama has been horrible, I will be great

After the rally exchange last week, we saw the Democrats immediately jump into action, convinced that his inaction was what would finally topple Trump. We knew because the media air reeked with the noxious stench of smug, self-righteous indignation. However, with Trump’s refusal to buckle under, the desperate attempts of Democrats et al. will likely end up backfiring, and as a result Trump may win over even more voters. Certainly he won’t lose any, given that he handed his supporters exactly what they demand and expect from him. Had he caved and meekly apologized, it would have been over for candidate Trump.
