Time to admit that Trump is doing a good job

It’s been drilled into everyone that “past performance is no guarantee of future results.”  That piece of wisdom is a double-edged sword.  Most Trump critics, be they Democrats or NeverTumps, miss the second edge.  However bad Trump’s pre-election behavior is perceived to be, it has almost no value in evaluating the obvious success of his presidency.

Just as there are naïve investors who are incredulous when a surefire opportunity becomes a money-loser, there are pundits who, in their own minds, know that a person or a policy will lead to disaster.  They are unable to grasp when reality makes their predictions worthless.

It is not a surprise that Trump was sexually active prior to his election.  For some people – surprisingly, mostly on the left – that is a sign of our downfall as a civilization.  They ask how they can explain it to their children.  In the post-New Deal era, the following presidents have been sexually promiscuous while actually in high office: FDR, Kennedy, Johnson, and Clinton.  There is no sense in which the Trump presidency is any less a model of propriety than that of either Bush or of Obama.
