Democrats’ Policies Are Unfit For The Presidency
Democrats’ Policies Are Unfit For The Presidency By Joy Pullmann for The Federalist
For four years, Democrats have been trying to cement in voters’ foreheads the idea that Trump is unfit for office. Perhaps that’s because Democrats’ policies never have been as unfit for the office as they are now.
In 2016, the news-minding public endured an endless chant branding Donald Trump’s character and personality as “unfit” for office.
It was a slogan deployed against him by no less than President Obama and Hillary Clinton. Clinton debuted it in a major campaign speech echoed in a campaign adfeaturing conservative writer Charles Krauthammer. In her speech, Clinton calledTrump “tempermentally unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge, stability, and immense responsibility. This is not someone who should ever have the nuclear codes.” Obama said, “the Republican nominee is unfit to serve as president.”
People who called Trump “unfit” for office in 2016 include Joe Biden; 2008 and 2012 Republican presidential nominees John McCain and Mitt Romney, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, USA Today’s editorial boardin its first presidential endorsement ever, later presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg, Sen. Rand Paul; RedState editor and “lifelong Republican” Leon Wolf, author of the debunked “Fire and Fury” novel Michael Wolff, TV personality Omarosa, 2020 presidential candidate Rep. John Delaney, Republican former Sen. Gordon Humphrey, and the United Kingdom’s now-Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
It didn’t end when Trump took office, of course. This week, Trump’s niece Mary Trump has a new tell-all book just like all the others, also insisting he’s “unfit.” In the intervening time, we’ve heard the same buzzword from the FBI director Trump fired, Jim Comey; the national security advisor Trump fired, John Bolton; writer Andrew Sullivan; New Hampshire Sen. Maggie Hassan; and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Clearly, Democrats have been trying to cement in voters’ foreheads the idea that Trump’s personality is unfit for office. Perhaps that’s because Democrats’ policies never have been as unfit for the office as they are now.
Just this week, in his first semi-public appearance in months, presidential Potemkin village candidate Joe Biden promised to be the farthest-left president in American history.
Reminder: Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders are two sides of the same socialist coin.

That’s quite a claim, if you know any history. Together, Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Lyndon B. Johnson slow-motion wrecked the United States’ institutions, replacing a society of individual accountability and responsibility with a society of buck-passing generational theft and an anti-American shadow Constitution. Even if your history knowledge only goes back four years, Obama’s presidency:
