Donald Trump’s Reaction To Nationwide Protests Defines Hypocrisy
Source: www.huffingtonpost.com...

President-elect Donald Trump, who took to Twitter Thursday to blast demonstrations against his victory as “very unfair,” had a different view of post-election distress four years earlier, when he called for a march on Washington “to stop this great and disgusting injustice.

It’s bad enough that the newly elected U.S. leader this week would take to Twitter to criticize opponents for exercising their First Amendment rights, blaming “professional protesters” incited by the media. Worse, though, is that in 2012, Trump tried to incite supporters of defeated Republican nominee Mitt Romney to take to the streets in protest of President Barack Obama’s re-election.

We can't let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!

Lets fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us.

In other tweets related to the 2012 election, some of which have since been deleted from his account but can be seen here, Trump described the Electoral College as “phoney” [sic] and called for a “revolution.”

He lost the popular vote by a lot and won the election,” Trump said then of Obama. “We should have a revolution in this country!


So which version of our new President-Elect should we listen to. The old angry anti-establishment version or the new embedded establishment? Or does the wisdom in your heart tell you neither one?

Hypocrisy? Or a change of heart? Or different circumstances? (I truly don't know his heart and mind... nor does anyone)

I would, however, like to see him step up to the plate like the president elect that he is and do what he can to calm the genuine fears and concerns among the protesters, and continue to call out the hired thugs for who and what they are so that all Hillary supporters are not tarred with that same broad brush.

Of course, I'd also like Hillary and Obama to do the same.

I won't be holding my breath.

Interesting? Will have to research this since I don't remember seeing Romney supporters rioting and violently protesting in the streets. Nor calls for electorates to change votes. Hmmm....though, truthfully, I was not as interested in that election, I may have missed all of the media hoopla.

So violent protest, destruction of property and hurting other human beings is freedom of speech?

Trump is the president elect he will be in the white house and is the job of the elected president right now Obama to stop the violent protest.

Peaceful protest is freedom of speech, violence is against the law.

Or just maybe, he was referring to the violent anarchists incited by MoveOn.org funded by George Soros (paid professional protestors) who are not only burning, looting, and destroying property, but in some documented cases even fighting themselves when others try and stop them from destroying property.

Those violent, paid professional protestors who are setting fires and destroying property as well as attacking other protestors do not have their actions protected by the first amendment.

Hillary is right on this. Trump should thank Comey for his job.

Remember the polls were going into double digits for Hillary until Comey did what he did.

Its no doubt in my mind that was by design

The vitriol of this last campaign is unprecedented. Give an example of another election that sparked such polarization.

People who ONLY think Politically had BETTER get used to an administration who rapidly adapts OUTSIDE the political measures.

KIND of why we went for it?

Yah, unfair. The main stream news is inciting little riots. Compared to coverage of Occupy, when they ignored the huge protest or joked about it.

I think the media outlets are crying because the new President Elect is not out there in front of the cameras screaming, foaming at the mouth and acting like a fool due to the protest.

Now that he is president, actually he is acting like a president, is not his job yet to make comments on the protest is the sitting president job to do that.

What Obama is doing to stop the violent protest?

No a darn thing.

Trump should not be given one minute of peace in office


He got the job by deception and help form a right-wing faction led by Comey


KARMA is a bitch


THAT’S WHY I BELIEVE THIS COUNTRY IS HEADED FOR DESTRUCTION

Trump has and will polarize America so much that nothing will work right anymore.

Where did Trump say somebody can't exercise their 1st Amendment rights?

His opinion is as good as anybody's right?

Now let's see what Obama does.
