|David "Melon-Head" Gergen|
Since Trump became President Elect, David "Melon-Head" Gergen keeps popping up as the taken Republican "expert" to poo-poo all that has been Donald Trump's successes.
There are many more fools today than we realized, but some fools have been consistent, and Gergen is one of them. The Attack of the Melon-Head. m/r

Life imitated art, this week, as detractors of The Donald dismissed his deal to keep Carrier, which announced a move to Mexico earlier this year, in Indiana.
“Companies are not going to leave the United States anymore without consequences,” Trump announced at the air-conditioner plant on Thursday. That’s another way of saying that you can no longer drink from the federal trough, as you piss on the people who fill it. United Technologies, Carrier’s parent company, derives about $6 billion in revenue from the federal government.
Citing deregulation and a push to decrease corporate taxes from 35 to 15 percent, the president-elect added a carrot to his stick, informing: “I just want to let all of the other companies know we’re going to do great things for business. There’s no reason to leave anymore.”
But saving 1,100 jobs before taking the oath of office failed to impress the pfft people.
“He is partially following through on a campaign promise, but this is not stemming the flow of offshoring in the United States,” Ryan Lizza said on CNN. “I don’t think Donald Trump is the first president to visit factories,” David Gergen felt compelled to point out, adding: “One thing this whole tableau does not address is the impact of automation.”
