I recall 2010 like it was yesterday. Marty Seifert was running for governor. His stump speech had a great line in it. Seifert said “On our side, we have an embarrassment of riches. The Democrats just have embarrassments.” Fast forward to today. President Trump has restored the economy. The energy sector is the most robust it’s been since President Reagan stopped Jimmy Carter’s green-capping program.
Meanwhile, the city of Minneapolis is getting more violent. People are leaving. Despite all that, Mayor Frey insists that “we govern with integrity, and we love all of our neighbors.” Right. Mayor Frey welcomes illegal aliens into Minneapolis, hates police officers and hates President Trump but he governs with integrity?
The last I looked, the Minneapolis mayor’s oath of office includes something about upholding the Constitution of the United States. Sanctuary cities violate the Constitution. So much for governing with integrity. Also, letting low-level crimes go unpunished isn’t governing with integrity.
Minneapolis police officers are benefiting from President Trump’s visit:
Jacob Frey isn’t benefiting from President Trump’s visit. He’s becoming a national embarrassment instead of just being a local embarrassment. Rather than staying silent, Frey had to open his mouth and verify that he’s an idiot, proving again that it’s better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
President Trump’s speech reportedly will focus on law enforcement. If that’s true, he’ll win over lots of suburban voters. If that happens, President Trump’s chances of flipping Minnesota will increase.
