Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, December 02, 2017

Nicole Nealy, NBC News: He's trashing the transatlantic rapport Reagan built. With Thatcher's help, America changed the world. Trump has no such vision for the "shining city upon the hill." President Trump's admirers often like to compare him to former President Ronald Reagan, another political outsider who took Washington by storm. Laura Ingraham's book, Billionaire at the Barricades: The Populist Revolution from Reagan to Trump lays out the case in great detail; the theory has even been embraced by conservative stalwarts like Pat Buchanan. But there are also plenty of ways in which that argument falls apart.

Consider, for example, that in a mere 30 years, the American president has gone from excoriating the scourge of communism alongside British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and exhorting Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev to "tear down this wall" to lobbing insults at Prime Minister Theresa May via Twitter and befriending Russian President Vladimir Putin even as the latter continues to consolidate power at the expense of the liberty of millions of Russians.

Red Ink Reagan was a traitor to America, Orange Furher is a bigger Traitor to America. Sniper is a traitor to America, but luckily he can't escape momma's basement like most Traitorus Alt-right rubes!

With Thatcher's help Reagan began dismantling the New Deal and privatizing everything in the neoliberal Chicago School of Economics type thinking. This commodifies ALL life, including human life. The Pinochet Dictatorship was the Chicago school's greatest triumph as thousands of socialists were thrown out of helicopters into the sea. Later Reagan, once President of the Actors union, claimed he supported FDR. After Thatcher died the English working class celebrated by singing, "Ding Dong the Witch is Dead"

Reagan and Trump both waged war against the working class. Both had dementia while President
