There is even more evidence that the Trump administration has found its footing and earned some respect.
Have you seen any polls since the first one? I haven’t. That indicates that he is gaining in approval. If he were declining, it would be played more frequently than the colorful hurricane map that glued itself to every channel’s broadcast.
Then the Washington Times brought up another point of success. They ask “Anyone noticed through the fog of Russia, Comey, Charlottesville, and now two monster hurricanes that the U.S. economy is booming faster than any time since the late Clinton years?
“It is undeniable. And the pace of improvement is quickening. In the last year of the Obama administration, the economy was decelerating with a dismal 1.6 percent growth rate. The economy revved up to a three percent growth rate in the April-June 2nd quarter this year, which is a nice bounce but still not a great number.
“A preliminary sneak peek at the current 3rd quarter GDP by the Atlanta Federal Reserve Bank, estimates an even brisker 3.4 percent growth.”
Any administration that gets continued 3.0 + numbers gets reelected, according to analysts.
Add to this the Hillary factor. The more we see of her complaining about the election, as she does in the interviews about her book, the more it vindicates the result. Democrats must hater her popping up again and grabbing all the Dem attention. She’s like a recurring Noro virus you can’t shake. Just when you think you’re over it, back it comes.
Even celebrities and their hate are sputtering. Take Michael Moore and his new play, “The Terms of My Surrender.” It has surrendered to poor box office, according to Mediaite:
Moore’s awful day was really destroyed when he saw the weekly grosses for his one-man Broadway show and realized how thoroughly he has been rejected by the New York theatre audience.
This week’s figures won’t be made public for another couple days… but we hear it’s pretty ugly.
According to Broadway World’s reporting of the weekly gross receipts for the run of the limited engagement production, ”The Terms of My Surrender” is in a downward spiral with numbers consistently at less than half of the show’s potential.
Even the Trump hating New York Times panned it. “Still, you don’t have to disagree with Mr. Moore’s politics to find that his shtick has become disagreeable with age. “The Terms of My Surrender,” which opened on Thursday at the Belasco, is a bit like being stuck at Thanksgiving dinner with a garrulous, self-regarding, time-sucking uncle. Gotta love him — but maybe let’s turn on the television.”
He even resorted to giving out free hot dogs after the show, but even that hasn’t gotten him out of the dog house.
If you can’t make it in New York…
Americans are tired of the hate. Will the media sense that? Probably not.
