I've never been "all in" with Trump.

I don't know how many times I've said that I was "all-in" for Rubio, but once Rubio was out, I grudgingly got behind Trump.

Why?

Because Hillary was VASTLY worse, in my opinion. And that opinion has not been changed, what with her piss-poor reaction to losing the election.

Trump is immature, impulsive, easily tweaked into making asinine comments on Twitter -- which is NOT an appropriate platform for a President to be using in the first place.

He has a bad habit of using phrases like "this is the bestest this has ever been in history" which is him exaggerating without any justification.

SO irritating.

I hate the way he speaks when he goes off-script, repeating the same word or phrase three or four times. "Jobs are coming back. They're coming back. They're Coming back."

SO irritating.

But -- HE IS STILL BETTER THAN HILLARY WOULD HAVE BEEN!!!

Do people forget that we didn't have the choice of anyone that we wanted? We had a choice between TWO PEOPLE - Trump or Hillary. That was it. Period. Trump. Or Hillary.

That said - I'll defend the man when he is being unfairly treated by a Left Media that emphasizes ad nauseum every tiny little negative thing he does or says, while at the same time totally IGNORING all of the good that he has done and is doing. The economy is going great. Consumer and Business confidence is up up UP. Incomes are up. Salaries are up. Employment is up. The Stock Market and thereby peoples' Retirement Savings are up up UP. Obama's "new normal" is in the past. And the Left Media is STILL 24/7 "Trump is the worst thing to ever happen to the United States."

This is what happened to me on FaceBook. Someone, like my former Track Coach, would post an anti-Trump "meme" that was erroneous. I would SIMPLY point out that it was erroneous, with FACTS proving that it WAS erroneous. And I would get hammered by him and a couple of other friends that I went to High School with for being "so pro-Trump". As if my intent was to INSULT my former Track Coach. He eventually unfriended me after I did that to him a few times, as did two of my High School friends, as did my fiance's brother. I was never insulting or mean. Just pointed out errors in anti-Trump posts. But that was enough to categorize me as a "full on, raging, right wing extremist".

Trump is better than our only other choice would have been. I'll criticize him or support him as I see appropriate.
