Trump's unique ability to make his opponents crazy and act against their own interest

Becket Adams:
President Trump’s greatest power is his ability to reduce his critics into bubbly, spittle-flecked puddles of screaming fury. He doesn’t even have to say a word.

The president’s mere presence drives his critics insane with rage. So insane, in fact, they’ll attack the issues they hold dear just so they can “resist” him better.

Consider, for example, an op-ed published this week in the LGBT magazine Out, which attacks the Trump administration’s new campaign to decriminalize homosexuality worldwide.

“Trump’s Plan to Decriminalize Homosexuality Is an Old Racist Tactic,” reads the article’s headline.

U.S. ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell, who is gay, is going to help lead the campaign, starting first with a “strategy meeting” with European activists, the State Department told reporters this week. The campaign aims to target Iran specifically over its human rights abuses, including its zero-tolerance anti-gay laws.

When I say zero-tolerance, I mean zero-tolerance. Iran hanged a 31-year-old recently who was found to be in violation of the country’s anti-gay laws, something Grenell himself characterized as a “barbaric public execution.”

You would think an LGBT magazine would be on board with any initiative to decriminalize homosexuality. But you’d be wrong. Trump is president, and he must be “resisted”!

The criticism is unlike to deter Trump.  He believes in the issue and also believes that Iran is an evil regime. It also puts more pressure on allies in Europe who have been defending the regime of Islamic religious bigots.
