Chelsea Clinton recently seemed to take a dig at President Donald Trump’s visit to Houston on Twitter, while Rev. Jesse Jackson has declared that the president will not enter Jesus’ kingdom. What’s their damage? Doc Thompson, Kari Malinak, Allie Stuckey and guest Joy Villa looked at both stories on Tuesday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” and analyzed why Trump critics undermine their credibility by slamming him on everything.
“People lost their lives, loved ones, homes, beloved pets. Many thousands of people face uncertain futures. Our President on #Harvey,” Clinton wrote in a tweet on Saturday that embedded a story about Trump’s response to Tropical Storm Harvey. Trump had acknowledged the difficult circumstances of those who lost their homes to the flood and praised the efforts of people who were helping them; apparently, that wasn’t enough for Clinton.
“I think this is the problem with the people who criticize the president endlessly,” Allie said on Tuesday’s show. While speaking up when you disagree is fine, if you criticize every single thing without being objective, no one will listen to you.
“When they start picking apart the things that he says that are positive, I think that’s when people just shut them out,” she said. “They don’t even listen to his critics when they are right.”
On Monday, Jackson spoke out about various social and political issues, including Trump’s stance on immigration. "Jesus would not qualify to come in Trump's country, he would not qualify to get into Jesus' kingdom,” Jackson said.
