Orrin Hatch has joined the ranks of the sycophants. Several news outlets reported on this gushing tribute to Trump but I extracted it from Newsmax.
Quoting Hatch in his participation of the victory of passing tax reform:
"Mr. President, I have to say that you're living up to everything I thought you would," Hatch said. "You're one heck of a leader. We're all benefitting from it. This bill could not have passed without you."
"This is just the beginning," Hatch said. "You stop and think about it, this president hasn't even been in office for a year. Look at all the things he's been able to get done by sheer will in many ways. I just hope that we get behind him every way we can, and we'll get this country turned around in ways that will benefit the whole world.
"Above all, benefit our people. Bring us all to a realization of how really great America really is and how the rest of the world depends on us."
"I came from very humble roots," Hatch said. "And I have to say, that this is one of the great privileges of my life, to stand here on the White House lawn with the president of the United States, who I love and appreciate so much, and with these wonderful colleagues and Cabinet members that stand behind us. To see all of you and realize that you care too.
"All I can say is that God loves this country. We all know it. We wouldn't be where we are without him. And we love all of you. We're going to keep fighting and we're going to make this the greatest presidency that we've seen not only in a generation, but maybe ever. God bless all of you."
This kind of pandering to Trump's need for adulation gets a bit sickening after a while. What bullshit...
