Finally, we have a strong leader who is not ashamed to be an American. He wants to fight for our citizens. He wants to Make America Great Again. He's run huge businesses, sometimes into the ground, but he's also bounced back and risen up to higher heights, much like the skyscrapers in Manhattan, New York.
He has more than impressed me, and he has assuaged every fear and concern so far about his commitment to this country, our Constitution, and his solemn promises to put Americans first and uphold the rule of law.
He is already enacting policies and making decisions that are great for business. He has also taken clear aim at Obamacare. He has assembled a vast network of incredible executive nominees. In welcome and yet unprecedented fashion, he has pushed aside a corrupt and frustrating liberal media cult--and has pulverized them for their stultifying bias.
Of course, blue states for the most part got bluer in 2016, signaled their determination to double-down on their regressive left-wing stupidity. Yet even deep blue Los Angeles County, where I had a Republican representing me for the first time in over 22 years, Republicans and conservatives in general have much to be happy about.
For that reason alone, LA Weekly's Hillel Aron announced that certain doom will befall the City of Angels following Trump's ascension to DC Paradise.
Aron issued his dour reflections about President Trump in the December 22. 2016 edition of the county alternative rag, which has for the last five years provided excellent reporting and commentary on the corrupt and unaccountable education scene in the Los Angeles Unified School District.
First, he deemed that Trump is the worst thing that could happen to Los Angeles:
There is simply no positive way to spin this: Donald Trump is an unmitigated disaster for Los Angeles.
I thought that the crumbling streets, the declining morale, the dispersed law and order which makes any great, let alone livable, had turned the Angelic Spanish settlement into an absolute hell hole.
What about the rampant illegal immigration, gang-banging, poverty, homeless, overpriced gentrification, government corruption, and general economic malaise spelled out that the disaster which has engulfed Los Angeles.

The coming Trump presidency has struck immigrants across the city with fear and uncertainty. And in addition to his call for mass deportations, Trump has threatened to starve all so-called "sanctuary cities" — places that refuse to assist the federal government in its deportation efforts — of federal funding. If Trump were to follow through on that threat, Los Angeles stands to lose billions of dollars.
The same media spin and lies roll out once again. If the immigrants in our midst are in this country legally, then what do they have to fear? If the "immigrants" in the country are not here legally, if they refused to follow the legal pathway to citizenship which is available to all, then they have only themselves to blame.
Of course, like the spoiled wannabe Millennials they want to be (forever young, forever stupid), the LA media coffee-klatch will blame Trump for all of California and Los Angeles' ills.
Speaking of losing buckets of money (not to mention killing your buzz), Trump also could make the legalization of recreational marijuana more difficult by continuing to criminalize it on the federal level. His pick for U.S. Attorney General, Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, bodes poorly for legal weed. ("If Mr. Sessions were to be confirmed, many supporters of legalization worry that his past remarks about marijuana could portend a crackdown," according to The New York Times .)
First, LA Weekly quotes #FakeNews New York Times, which jumps to the raging conclusion that Senator Sessions is going to crack down on sovereign states which have decriminalized marijuana. Washington State and Colorado better be on the look-out, right? After all, AG Sessions won't have anything else really serious to focus on, like illegal immigration, domestic terrorize, rampaging fraud and corruption in state and local governments. Yeah, G Sessions is going for your weed first thing tomorrow morning.
Sessions is very likely to going to let the MJ choom-train run at low-profile speeds. Smoke it, but don't blow the smoke in Washington's face. Of course, with the Democratic supermajority bracing for one fight after another with Trump to show their true left-wing credentials, expect Los Angeles and San Francisco to do everything they can to invite all-out war with President Trump, Vice-President Mike Pence, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Secretary of State Rex Tillerston, and Secretary of Everything Else ...
Not only is Trump one of the worst things to happen to L.A. in 2016, he also imperils one of the best things to happen to the city this year (recreational weed) and one of the best things about the city, period (its spirit of inclusion).
Aron thinks that smoking dope is the most "dope" thing to hit Los Angeles? Really?!
No wonder this city is going down the drain. The hard-hitting journalist who follows the epic fails of LAUSD thinks that MJ is the best thing in LA, and fears the President in DC.
This is what Trump Derangement Syndrome looks like--in print, in one of the largest cities in the country, in one of the bluest states in the Union.
For the Trump supporter in the Belly of the LA Beast, all I can say is: "How sweet it is!"
