I love the irony of liberals damning communists and Russia when contorting truth to malign Donald Trump.

They didn’t hate communists when they supported the Rosenbergs, proven communist spies.

They didn’t when they grinned during May Day parades.

They didn’t when a Hollywood celebrity sat on an enemy anti-aircraft gun in North Vietnam.

They excoriated Joseph McCarthy for warning us about Communists.

None were upset when Van Jones, a communist, served in the Obama administration.

They didn’t seem to mind Che Guevara T-shirts or his barbarism.

They were fine with Obama petting Medvedev’s knee.

And they were kind of cranky with President Reagan when he stood down Russia in the ‘80s.

They were strangely silent when Pathet Lao (communists) slaughtered their fellow Laotians.

But for the last three years, they now see the evil in all things Russian, Putin and communist.

Well, thank you, President Trump — another accomplishment! You finally made the lost, myopic Left in America see the evil that was staring them in the face and threatening the world in 3D since 1917.

I want to welcome Nick Smith to our side and thank Donald Trump for opening Nick’s eyes.

This might be Trump’s greatest accomplishment if the left is sincere and not merely posturing in order to irrationally malign him. Nah, I’m sure they are sincere. Right?
