When Will the Left Learn President-Elect Trump Won't Be a Punching Bag?

These days leftist losers exemplify sore losers, and they are shameless about it.

President-elect Donald Trump became the 2016 Republican presidential candidate and the President-elect by rejecting foolish advice not to fight back against the liberal media.

Mark Twain famously said: "Never pick a fight with people who buy ink by the barrel."

It was good advice, but it doesn't mean don't fight back against newspapers.

Trump is a counterpuncher.

It has worked well for him, but the liberal media and conventional thinkers still don't want him to do it.

It's downright presidential, not unpresidential.

Trump doesn't give the New York Times, or the Washington Post, or CNN (called the Clinton News Network) for good reason), or MSNBC, or Megyn Kelly, the free shots they crave.

In this the Age of Twitter, it works very well for him.

Political hitmen like that Moslem lawyer who is a Gold Star father discover that Trump counterattacks hard.

That's what Americans want the likes of the ruler of North Korea to appreciate!

Trump's not the type to set a red line and tolerate it being crossed.

That's a HUGE improvement!

Civil Rights icon Congressman John Lewis of Georgia recently publicly whined that he won't attend President-elect Trump's inauguration because he considers Trump's election to be "illegitimate."

Trump did not ignore that pathetic attempt to subvert his presidency.

Trump essentially told Lewis in a tweet to tend to the urgent needs of his Congressional district instead of resting on his laurels and working to undermine the Trump presidency.

It was good advice that probably will be ignored.

These days leftist losers exemplify sore losers, and they are shameless about it.

Not even the so-called "intelligence community" is guaranteed free shots by Trump.

Rightly so!

Washington Post editor Bob Woodward of Watergate fame seems to realize that Trump won't be anyone's punching bag.

Woodward succinctly described the salacious and unsubstantiated dossier on Trump released by U.S. intelligence agencies alleging deep ties between Trump and Russia as "garbage."

After reflection, Woodward said: "Iíve lived in this world for 45 years where you get things and people make allegations. That is a garbage document." Woodward elaborated: "In Trumpís mind, he knows the old adage, 'once a CIA man, always a CIA man,' and no one came out and said those people shouldnít be saying those things. So act two is the briefing when this dossier is put out."

The liberal media desperately wants President-elect Trump to give up his Twitter account and let them filter him.

Trump's much too smart for them.

Trump thrives on direct access to the people, not biased media filtering.

How long will it take the Left to learn that Trump is the change making them passe?

Biography - Michael J. Gaynor

Michael J. Gaynor has been practicing law in New York since 1973. A former partner at Fulton, Duncombe & Rowe and Gaynor & Bass, he is a solo practitioner admitted to practice in New York state and federal courts and an Association of the Bar of the City of New York member.

Gaynor graduated magna cum laude, with Honors in Social Science, from Hofstra University's New College, and received his J.D. degree from St. John's Law School, where he won the American Jurisprudence Award in Evidence and served as an editor of the Law Review and the St. Thomas More Institute for Legal Research. He wrote on the Pentagon Papers case for the Review and obscenity law for The Catholic Lawyer and edited the Law Review's commentary on significant developments in New York law.

The day after graduating, Gaynor joined the Fulton firm, where he focused on litigation and corporate law. In 1997 Gaynor and Emily Bass formed Gaynor & Bass and then conducted a general legal practice, emphasizing litigation, and represented corporations, individuals and a New York City labor union. Notably, Gaynor & Bass prevailed in the Second Circuit in a seminal copyright infringement case, Tasini v. New York Times, against newspaper and magazine publishers and Lexis-Nexis. The U.S. Supreme Court affirmed, 7 to 2, holding that the copyrights of freelance writers had been infringed when their work was put online without permission or compensation.

Gaynor currently contributes regularly to www.MichNews.com, www.RenewAmerica.com, www.WebCommentary.com, www.PostChronicle.com and www.therealitycheck.org and has contributed to many other websites. He has written extensively on political and religious issues, notably the Terry Schiavo case, the Duke "no rape" case, ACORN and canon law, and appeared as a guest on television and radio. He was acknowledged in Until Proven Innocent, by Stuart Taylor and KC Johnson, and Culture of Corruption, by Michelle Malkin. He appeared on "Your World With Cavuto" to promote an eBay boycott that he initiated and "The World Over With Raymond Arroyo" (EWTN) to discuss the legal implications of the Schiavo case. On October 22, 2008, Gaynor was the first to report that The New York Times had killed an Obama/ACORN expose on which a Times reporter had been working with ACORN whistleblower Anita MonCrief.
