Like everything in politics, there is a narrative, an accepted line of thought about something or someone that there is rarely an effort to prove false or even question. It just is. Democrats care about minorities; Republicans are racist, sexist, bigoted homophobes; politicians don’t care if they get reelected, and so on. It is either the reason or the result, that the political process is carried out in America the way it is. But sometimes, something different from what we have been led to believe is seen or heard. It might be something small, but it upends the narrative that has been created around it, or them, and it might just make you see that person or that thing a bit differently.
Former President Donald Trump has been in the public eye for most of his adult life in one way or another. He burst onto the scene in the 1980s as the quintessential business mogul, fabulously wealthy and successful, with a beautiful wife. He went on to do reality TV, and even cameo appearances in movies like Home Alone 2. He came to politics late in life, and when he did, he aimed for the top spot. Both business and politics are hard-nosed arenas, but Trump has had the mentality for each one.

From the moment Trump came down the escalator in Trump Tower, Democrats and the media have had the narrative for Trump all prepared and ready to go. Donald Trump was a cold, heartless, racist, sexist, homophobic Nazi. He only cares about himself, and his ultimate goal is to be king for life. There’s much more, but you get the idea.
But something happened recently, that like all other ridiculous notions Democrats and the media have about Trump, blows that narrative — like every other one — to pieces. Trump made a trip to South Dakota earlier in September for a campaign rally, where he also picked up the endorsement for 2024 of Gov. Kristi Noem. Like all Trump rallies, it was a raucous affair, full of “Trump 2024” signs and chants of “USA.” Trump spoke about the current state of the nation but also talked about how America had been built “into the greatest nation in the history of the world.”
But he stopped after those words and appeared to not be able to go on. For roughly 35 seconds, Trump is visibly emotional at the thought of what has happened to the country since he left the White House. It is a short clip of video, but arguably, one of the most powerful that may come out of this election cycle.

The audience then takes over for him for a bit. It is that same auditorium of supporters that the great Rush Limbaugh predicted that Democrats and the media would never understand or even bother to try. Often, politicians are a poor man’s actor. Who can forget Bill Clinton, who, when walking out of a church, made sure to have a Bible in the hand that was closest to the camera? While the left may scoff at any possible show of emotion from Trump, one of the things that Rush referred to was the fact that Trump’s supporters know he is genuine when talking about the country, and they are simply not going to abandon him. He knows that Joe Biden and the Democrats are slowly destroying a nation that just three short years ago was prosperous by any measure, until the onset of the COVID-19 virus.
There are plenty of people, even some conservatives and Republicans, who dislike Donald Trump. But unlike the unhinged left, it is a rational dislike based upon personality or policy. The sight of Trump getting choked up over the ongoing demise of a country he loves should get to even those who fall into the dislike column. We are used to seeing Trump point at the “fake news” in the back of the rally or needle his favorite target of the day, be it Joe Biden, or one of his fellow GOP presidential candidates. To see Trump unable to speak because of emotion is a human side of Donald Trump Democrats and the media don’t want you to see, and there is a simple reason why they don’t want you to see it. When was the last time you saw a Democrat get choked up about what is happening to the country?
If Republicans are smart, they would take this short 45-second bit of video and make a dozen campaign commercials out of it. Donald Trump is simply giving a face to millions of Americans who are feeling the same way he does. It would illustrate the fact that Democrats own all of the nation’s woes, and chances are, you will never see them get emotional about America.
