I’ll be honest, I don’t know who Michael Goodwin is. He writes a column for the New York Post and is a Fox News contributor. His latest column has made Donald Trump very happy.
A quick Google search shows that Goodwin is a typical rightwing hack who says stupid shit on Fox News and makes a living doing that, or something like that. I really never understood that there could be a marketplace for people like this to opine. In a November 2015 column, Goodwin said that President Obama didn’t want to fight ISIS and he should resign.
That’s the context to place Goodwin’s latest column, in which he writes that despite Trump’s “missteps, there has never been a day when I wished Hillary Clinton were president. Not one.”
Goodwin spent the first three paragraphs bitching about Steve Bannon. Then Goodwin fires a few spitballs at Michael Wolff’s book “Fire and Fury,” which has Trump clearly livid.
Around the tenth paragraph in Goodwin gets to his point. These are the parts that has gotten Trump so excited this evening.
Indeed, as Trump’s accomplishments accumulate, the mere thought of Clinton in the White House, doubling down on Barack Obama’s failed policies, washes away any doubts that America made the right choice.
So excited Trump just hurled out a couple of tweets that didn’t really match up with Goodwin’s column.
The word “consensual” doesn’t exist in Goodwin’s current column, perhaps Trump got confused, or Goodwin changed his column. Those tweets were deleted and Trump tweeted this.
Trump is happy. He found someone to say nice things about him in the newspaper, even if it is the New York Post.
