During the midterms candidates like Herschel Walker, Dr. Oz, and even Kari Lake were vilified by the left for their celebrity status. The left held that against them by claiming they had no experience, etc. But mark my words, they would have put them on a pedestal if they ran as Democrats. The same happened to Donald Trump when he switched parties and Elon Musk. These men top the list of the most hated by the left right now. But if Trump had run as a Democrat, there wouldn’t have been one impeachment or even negative story on him even if his policies were conservative. They would have loved The Wall, America 1st, and lower taxes. He had a few skeletons in his closet, but the left loves Democrat skeletons. Look at Fetterman. They overlooked all his faults and Biden’s too.
My point is, if you are a Black Republican candidate, they come for you. If you are a Republican celebrity, they come for you because Blacks and celebrities are supposed to be Democrat! No matter how popular you are like DeSantis, they will tear you limb from limb if you decide to run for president. It was never about the man who ran, it was about his party. So whether we have Trump running again or DeSantis, they will both be torn apart by the left. They call Republicans evil, racist, bigots who are against women’s rights and want to end social security. All lies being spread by the liberal media and colleges.
Look at celebrities that have come out as Republican and what they do to them like Clint Eastwood or Jon Voight. Most are too afraid to voice their political views for fear of being cancelled at the box office. I’m sure there are countless numbers of conservative actors that remain silent. But the liberal ones scream from the rooftops like Madonna, Ashley Judd, Johnny Depp, Bette Midler, Cher, Robert DeNiro, Alec Baldwin, and Barbra Streisand. They may have lost some fans at the box office as well, but we don’t cancel like the left does. I still watch their movies on tv, some of them being my favorites like Double Jeopardy, Secret Garden, Beaches, Moonstruck, Falling in Love, Working Girl, and The Mirror Has Two Faces.
Message to Trump: We know you got treated badly for four years in office yet you were able to accomplish so much during that time with little experience as a politician. That being your Achilles heel. You had no idea how vicious the opposing party and the FBI would get and sometimes didn’t see it coming like January 6th. When you held a rally that day near the Capitol, it allowed the left to take advantage and stage the riot to blame on you. But that is history now that no one wants to admit. We also know the 2020 election was rigged but too late to adjudicate it now. Whatever you decide regarding 2024, I will support your decision. Just don’t be too hard on your GOP opponents. The GOP is very discombobulated right now. Can’t believe Laxalt lost. He was ahead on election night. Sound familiar? :>/
Good luck in whatever you decide.
