When you’re getting lectures about maturity and grace from a pants-wetting weenie like Piers Morgan, you really need to check yourself. Like, yesterday.
Morgan – for all his faults – has written two pieces for the Daily Mail about this anti-Trump hysteria that’s gripped leftists after the election. The first one is directed at Hollywood celebrities and their ridiculous antics. The second is toward spoiled, selfish Millennials who never learned to lose and who’ve had everything handed to them just for showing up.
First, he addresses celebrities for their melodramatic response to Trump’s victory –
But nothing makes my teeth gnash quite as much as the sobbing, bile-spewing cacophony of celebrity Clinton sycophants now screaming blue murder about it all being a fix, demanding democracy be destroyed, joining protests which depict horrific scenes of violence and massively exaggerating, before, during and now after the election, how ‘monstrous’ Trump actually is.
As comedian Chris Rock told me last week: ‘If someone’s killed six people, don’t run around telling everyone he’s killed ten. That nonsense just got Trump more support.’
‘If your ears are burning, that’s everyone in the entire world laughing at us,’ announced Chrissy Teigen, the foul-mouthed Twitter-trolling swimwear model wife of singer John Legend.
No, Ms Teigen, we’re all laughing at you gormless, deluded celebrities who bet your entire credibility bank on a Clinton win, assuming it would lead to glittering Inauguration Ball and White House invitations, and who have now been made to look painfully out-of-touch with real Americans and quite desperately sore losers.
You’ll all now be sitting at home licking your millionaire wounds while Ted Nugent rocks out the National Anthem on January 20. A due reward for your arrogance in assuming your pampered, elitist patronage could sway an election.
Ouch. And the entire column is just like that. He addresses Robert de Niro, Yoko Ono, Chelsea Handler, and even (heaven help me) Patrick Stewart, who apparently opined that Trump’s election was the worst thing that’s happened to the world in the last 100 years –
‘Trump is one of the very worst things to happen to our World in the last 100 years,’ declared actor Sir Patrick Stewart last night.
Really, Sir Patrick?
Worse than two World Wars?
Worse than the two atomic bombs landing in Japan?
Worse than the assassinations of JFK, Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King?
Worse than 9/11?
Worse than Dunblane and Sandy Hook?
Worse than ISIS?
Get a grip, man.
Ugh – WHY, Sir Patrick?
The celebrities freaking out, I can almost understand. These are people whose entire lives are about living in a fantasy world and getting paid to do it, so it’s kind of forgivable (key phrase: “kind of”). It’s like they have no other choice but to act like utter fools in public, since that’s all they know how to do.
Millennials, however, are a different story. See, Millennials are someday (hopefully) going to be leaders in our society. Whether it’s political leaders or business leaders or social leaders – the fact is that the things they believe in and hold dear are the things that America will someday believe in and hold dear. And, given their priorities right now, I’m not terribly hopeful about it.
The biggest problem is the one that Piers Morgan takes on with full-force – that of the fact that today’s youth clearly does not know how to deal with disappointment, and they certainly don’t know how to deal with losing an election –
In short, STOP being such a faux-tormented bunch of absolutely deluded cretins.
Want to know why Trump is going to be your next president?
It’s because he is what’s called a ‘winner’.
I know it’s not ‘cool’ to be a winner these days.
It’s become an ugly, dirty word in your PC-crazed universe.
Far better, the social media millennial mob cries, to be a gallant loser who tries their best but comes up short – like Bernie, or now Hillary.
To which I say: bulls**t.
Winning is what life’s really about – whether in sport, politics, or simply producing the best decorated pumpkin in your town’s Thanksgiving parade.
If you don’t strive to be the very best at whatever you do, however big or small, then what’s the point in doing it, or frankly even being alive?
Why wallow in self-induced mediocrity?
Morgan also committs the crime of – GASP – suggesting that Millennials learn from Trump’s victory. Actually learn what a successful person does and how they win –
To the winner of a US presidential election goes all the spoils of being the most powerful person on earth…
To the loser, no gold stars for effort.
Winners like Trump don’t believe in ‘participation prizes.’ They believe you either win or lose.
Winners like Trump don’t weep and wail when they lose. They vow to win next time.
Winners like Trump don’t take days off to ‘process’ their loss. They dust themselves down and get on with life.
Winners like Trump don’t assume they’ll win. They do what it takes to win.
Winners like Trump don’t leave anything in the field of competition. They give it 100%.
‘Winning,’ said the great NFL coach Vince Lombardi, ‘is not a sometime thing, it’s an all the time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is habit.’
Lombardi further clarified: ‘Winning isn’t everything, but wanting to win is.’
That’s Trump’s life mantra too. It’s why he’s now heading to the White House, and also why he may now surprise people and turn out to be a rather effective president.
Hear that? That is the sound of thousands of triggered Millennials running for their safe spaces.
Both of Morgan’s columns are fantastic – even though I can’t stand the man’s politics, I can certainly agree with him on everything he said here. The Millennial column in particular needs to be shared and shouted within earshot of all the butthurt youth out protesting the streets.
And if you don’t want to take it from a grumpy old dude like Piers Morgan, hear it from me. My mom called me a few days ago to vent about girls I grew up with (their actions are so immature that I refuse to call them “women”) that she’s still Facebook friends with (I unfriended them a long time ago, for unrelated reasons) and how they’re constantly whining like a bunch of spoiled children because their precious Queen Hillary didn’t get the ascend to her throne like was planned. They’re predicting doomsday scenarios wherein President Trump rounds up gays, Muslims, Mexicans, Jews, women, etc. and puts them in camps. They’re “literally triggered” by the fact that Saint Obama is being replaced by the likes of Donald Trump (which is ironic, given that at least one of these girls’ dads is a police officer. How has police life been like for the past few years under Democrat leadership, I wonder).
One girl even admitted that she’d never lost anything in her life and she didn’t know how to function (which is a lie, because I was on a team with her in middle school and we lost at a state competition BIG TIME. She cried like a baby back then too). More than one of these girls has proclaimed that anyone who disagrees with them should unfriend them immediately. Which is great, since I already took care of that years ago.
My point? My generation is a bunch of melodramatic babies that need to grow the crap up and deal with life like an adult. And it’s not just these nameless hoards of Millennials marching in the streets and burning down cities – it’s people that I actually know. Good grief, if you’ve gotten this far in life without learning how to deal with losing and disappointment, what have you DONE with yourself for fifteen years?? Lived in a house made of bubble wrap? GET OVER IT ALREADY.
You know these snowflakes would be saying the same thing to me if my side had lost (arguably, I didn’t even have a side in this election. I disliked them both intensely. But I’m dealing with the reality of President Trump, and it’s about time everyone else did too).
Okay, that’s my rant over. Back to Piers Morgan – he’s right on the money. He’s about as sick of the whining coming from the left as I am. What’s interesting is that the more the left cries about it, the more I’m inclined to think that Trump’s administration might actually be a good thing. He hasn’t even done a whole lot yet, but if the left is mad about something, chances are high that this is something that will benefit America.
