In 2016, Hillary Clinton called Trump voters Deplorables.
The year 2020 finds Jon Meacham likening us to lizard brains. Meacham, one of the left’s favorite historians, mused that white America has retreated into unthinking limbic mode.
A patrician from Texas, an oil man, responded politely, on Martha MacCallum’s Fox News show: “If putting food on my family’s table and worrying about my employees makes me a lizard brain, then call me iguana.”
Iguanas-cum-deplorables are with Trump, and he with them. And he, President Donald J. Trump, is leaving everything he’s got on the battlefield.
Trump is not merely showing up, standing prone, looking out nervously upon a few oddly encircled, masked supporters, as his rival, Joe Biden, is doing.
Oh, no! Be it in Bullhead City or Goodyear, Arizona, or Circleville, Ohio, or Lansing, Michigan—Trump has been turning in the kind of performances that come from the heart, cocking a snook at the media establishment, while throwing himself into each and every rally with as much joy, exuberance and optimism as went into the rally before and the one to follow.
Here is a president who loves the thousands upon thousands of constituents who cling to him, to their guns and their God. He draws his strength from them, and engages in repartee with them.

Breaking protocol with the colluding quislings of cable news, Michael Smerconish, a CNN commentator, could not contain his admiration for the president’s energy and stamina, following the commander-in-chief’s bout with COVID, as he charged headlong into battleground states. The anchor gushed spontaneously about the four rallies a day POTUS has been putting on: Ohio, Illinois, Wisconsin, Florida, on and on, while Biden tiptoed in and out of the basement.
While Trump riffs easily about football with His People; “Sleepy Joe” carries on about COVID, which is a bit of a downer, wouldn’t you say?
“We’re not living with it; we’re dying with it. We’re not profiting from it; we’re croaking from it,” he keeps yelling.
(Actually, the Bidens are profiting handsomely. “Sleepy Joe’s” experience as a “blue-collar” type was short-lived. Once he headed for the fleshpots of Washington, D.C., Biden, it would appear, morphed into an oligarch. By the looks of it, he parleyed his political influence into a wealth-making juggernaut.)
If Biden’s miserable message works, America is no longer America. …

Another money moment from President Trump about the lockdown of the country: In Michigan, for example, only the husband of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer is allowed out of the house.
