Donald Trump is the Dennis Rodman of politics. To my Democrat friends, now that you have stopped laughing, please continue reading; to my Republican friends, this is a supreme compliment to President Trump, please continue reading.

I have had the pleasure of talking with Rodman privately in the past and found him to be one of the most intelligent people I have ever met. And he has one of the most magnetic personalities I have ever encountered.

No one dislikes him and he immediately makes everyone feel at home around him.

Those who understand Rodman best are those who do not try to understand him; they simply accept him at face value and give him the freedom to be himself.

Everyone in the N.B.A. wanted Rodman on their team because they knew he would deliver on the court.

Nevermind him wearing a wedding dress to his book release party in the 90s. He would show up late for practices and games; but despite this disruption, every N.B.A. team would have gladly taken him because he was viewed as a winner.

Notice the number of Hall of Fame coaches Rodman played for: Chuck Daley (Pistons), Phil Jackson (Bulls), and Greg Popovich (Spurs).

These were coaches who had a firm grip on their teams and coached for N.B.A. teams that are all storied franchises as far as management goes.

Similarly, Donald Trump in many ways is like Dennis Rodman. You will go crazy trying to understand him with “conventional wisdom.”

Those who understand him best are those who don’t try to constrain and contain him. They stand back and marvel at his ability to use the tool of “misdirection” to confuse his enemies.

Trump told us during the 2016 campaign that he likes to keep people guessing about him and his policies; well, he has not disappointed us in this regard.

Rodman wearing a dress had nothing to do with his prolific rebounding on the court, having led the NBA in rebounds seven straight years or him being named to seven NBA All-Defensive First teams; and most did not realize at the time that Rodman was paid $ 10 million dollars for wearing that dress. Now tell me who is the fool.

Similarly, people cringe at Trump’s tweets, his bluntness in media interviews, and his constant stream of consciousness in front of the media; but this is the same guy that got his tax cut in 2017 that gave us a bullish economy, that broke the ice with North Korea by doing a face to face, and put America’s interest above other nations.

Democrats, the radical liberal media, and never Trumpers are still scratching their heads trying to figure out how Trump won the nomination in 2016, yet alone the presidency.

Their conclusion is that Trump voters are stupid, ignorant, white supremacists, white nationalists, racist, homophobic, xenophobic, crazy, etc.

Despite the drama that constantly surrounds this president, most Americans believe he is fighting for the rights of and supremacy of America.

Most of the foreign leaders I talk to about Trump have great respect for his singular focus of putting the interests of America first and not the wishes of the European Union, NATO, or the United Nations which are all controlled by radical liberal globalist elites.

These foreign leaders are all amazed that its taken this long for an American president to put their own country first.

So, Americans had to decide whether they wanted to win the global Mr. Congeniality contest like we did with former president Obama and were made to look weak; or elect Dennis Rodman, er Trump, and win championships, i.e., advancing a conservative agenda.

America overwhelmingly chose Dennis Rodman. America no longer wanted to lose with style, Obama; but rather they wanted to win with blood on their uniforms because they were in a fight.

Winning is winning. There is absolutely no consolation in losing!

Those who support Trump are loyal to him, despite all of his eccentricities, because they see in him a fighter, yes maybe even a bully; but he is fighting for values they believe in:

marriage between man and woman, genders are either male or female, protection of religious freedoms, pro-life, America’s interest above global elites.

Why other American presidents sold us out is a big question. Trump’s ascendancy to the presidency is America’s response to our globalist political elites from both parties here in the U.S.

Trump doesn’t seem to care about being popular; but rather advancing the cause of America around the world. And for this he is considered racist, isolationist, and xenophobic?

Really?

In the immortal words of my boy, Niccolo Machiavelli, “It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.”

Obama feared not being loved and America lost; Trump hates not being feared and America is winning.

BIG H/T TO RAYNARD JACKSON ON THIS WHOLE THREAD....THESE ARE HIS WORDS...FASCINATING

@Steeltruth

As they did to Zero, I'd LOVE to see someone try to make Trump exit the back of the plane...that plane would be air-bound tout de suite.

@Linnie And to be clear...Raynard Jackson wrote that. I had it and shared...gave him credit at beginning and end... Loved it enough to share here.

We truly are the party of We The People. Such an inspiring and beautiful movement we've made.

Tears in my eyes...

@Steeltruth

Thank you Ann. I did see your credit, but just loved it so much, I and wanted to thank you for sharing it.

It was a beautiful thread.

To all Americans and the rest of the world I’m honored to call @POTUS a friend. He’s one of the best negotiators of all time and I’m looking forward to him adding to his historic success at the Singapore Summit.

@Steeltruth We who stand together behind our President are called a cult. Oh well, so be it.

@stephanieanne NO ONE Is passing kool aid.... so I'm good with this "cult" then.

@Steeltruth I am thinking Trump is the Bill Russell of politics. He has navigated the treacherous political waters for so long. He is tough as hell and comes out on top at the end.

@Steeltruth

Awesome thought provoking thread. Thank you for sharing it, Ann. It needs to make the rounds so many can read it. Americans love an underdog that will fight for what is best for all.

@Steeltruth

Like President Trump, not many see the real persona of Dennis Rodman. Trump wouldn't have significant dealings with a bunch of morons...unless it was a means to an end (rabid Democrats).

@Steeltruth

I agree wholeheartedly. Many, many moons ago I attended a banquet/auction where I met Rodman. He was a total gentleman, very bright and very funny! I could have chatted with him for hours. And, dang, he's tall! In heels I barely came up to his shoulder. (My heels, not his) 😜
