Trump Gets Blamed For Everything!
If it seems at times that leftists will blame President Donald Trump for virtually everything they don’t like, that’s because leftists are blaming Trump for pretty much everything they dislike.
By now, whether they wanted to or not, just about everybody has seen the video of a bloodied doctor being dragged off of a United Airlines flight to make room for airline employees who needed a lift, a thoroughly despicable PR disaster for United if ever there was one.
But at least one liberal Hollywood star, John Cho — “Sulu” of the latest “Star Trek” films fame — has somehow divined a connection between that incident in Chicago and the “environment” created by Trump, according to The Washington Times.
“It’s hard not to see a connection between the environment Trump has created and what happened on that united flight,” Cho tweeted.
As has come to be expected in the Twitter-era, the internet did not take too kindly to Cho’s absurd linkage, and the tweet-trackers at Twitchy served up quite a collection of hilarious retorts to Cho’s assertion.
Wounded warrior, Iraq veteran and all-around bada** J.R. Salzman “called it” early Monday morning by wondering if anyone had blamed Trump for the United incident yet, and he wasn’t disappointed.
Though there were some equally delusional leftists who saw — or pretended to see — the same ephemeral connection as Cho, most Twitter users simply mocked the actor for making such a cognitive leap.
Several users pointed out that airlines in general and United in particular were already fairly well loathed by the public before Trump won his upset victory in November, while many others simply expressed their profound disbelief at the idiocy of Cho’s statement.
Perhaps the funniest replies though were those that referenced Cho’s claim to fame prior to “Star Trek,” that being the marijuana-rific “Harold and Kumar” franchise of comedy films.
Then there were those who compared Cho’s absurdity to that of his “Sulu” predecessor, George Takei, who is well-known for making idiotic and controversial remarks that he somehow gets away with because he is a liberal, gay Asian, or something like that.
On a slightly more serious note, The Daily Wire noted that the “environment” of which Cho spoke, presumably one of violence and bullying and racism, is more aptly described as a creation of the left.
Indeed, the overwhelming majority of violent outbursts and instances of bullying since Trump first entered the presidential race have been perpetrated by the left.
As for the perception of racism against the Asian doctor who was dragged off the flight — pay no mind to the fact that he was picked at random — well, one only need look at former President Franklin D. Roosevelt for evidence of how the left views and treats Asian people.
Regardless of his reasoning or the thought process behind the tweet, assuming there was any, Cho merely represents the intellectually flailing left in the age of Trump, in which anything and everything is wholly the fault of the president and his supporters, no matter how tenuous the connection may be.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter so everyone can see the moronic tweet from Hollywood leftist John Cho.
