President Donald Trump is in New London, Connecticut today delivering the commencement address at the Coast Guard Academy. He was mid-speech this morning when he detoured from what he had planned to say to open a sudden can of whoop a** after realizing who else was there and not part of the Coast Guard. His sudden change of plans was well-received by everyone else in attendance as the entire event turned into momentary chaos.
Our Commander-in-Chief is known the speak the brutal truth no matter who it offends if it’s something that needs to be heard and/or said. No better proof of that is what happened during his special address when someone who certainly had it coming got a heaping dose of reality from our rightfully pissed off president.
Graduation speeches like what Trump was picked to deliver today are meant to congratulate, but also encouraged each graduate as they go out into the world and embark on their next step in life. The president’s address started out this way before he threw the crowd a curve ball with his comments that couldn’t have been more perfect.
“Now I want to take this opportunity to offer you some advice. Over the course of your life, you will find that things are not always fair. You will find that things happen to you that you do not deserve… You have to put your head down and fight, fight, fight!… Never ever, ever give up. Things will turn out just fine,” President Trump began to say before making this statement exceptionally applicable with an example in his own life using certain people present at the commencement ceremonies to make his point.
“….Look at the way I have been treated lately. No politician in history has been treated worse or more unfairly. You can’t let them get you down. You can’t let the critics and naysayers get in the way of your dreams,” he said as the crowd erupted in cheers for him boldly calling out the biased media, some of which were there covering the speech.
The roar of the crowd and excited chaos it caused increased with what Trump said next. “I was not elected to please the Washington media. I was elected to please you, the forgotten man.” This seemed to be the most well-received remark of his entire address and for good reason.
While some may criticize our president for turning a commencement speech into an attack on his adversaries, our brave leader absolutely said the right thing that these impressionable minds needed to hear, and our negative media needed to be hit with. It’s perfect encouragement to these graduates who are about to go out into the world where they’ll face challenges and people who try to discourage them.
Society has become too soft as feelings became a priority under our last administration, rather than teaching young adults to be strong and not easily offended, or needing “safe spaces.” Winners aren’t made by whining and that’s exactly why this man, with no previous career in politics, became the President of the United States.
The biased media have gotten away with their constant slander mission against our president for too long, taking it to the point where they actually feel impeachment is possible. They expect Trump to simply take the abuse and accept it for what it is, but he doesn’t have to and shouldn’t. When he fights back like he did today, they use it against him to say he’s unstable or not a good leader for being so brash. What America needs is someone to stand up for the country, the common man, and our Constitution, which starts with a person who is able to defend himself after being pushed too far.
For the first time in almost a decade, young people like these Coast Guard graduates and countless other young adults and children across the nation finally have a president they can look up to. He doesn’t waiver on his beliefs and promises to the people, nor does he bow down to the abusive media and politicians. His actions speak as loud as his words do and what he said today to the crowd was what the entire country needed to hear.
