ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, a self-described independent who usually offers left-of-center commentary when he opines on politics, predicted that Donald Trump is likely to be re-elected, which would make him the only president other than Grover Cleveland to serve two non-consecutive terms.
Smith’s comment about Trump came after a rant about Democrats doing more to help illegal aliens and other causes that don’t benefit American citizens.
Smith: I see homeless folks in the streets of New York all the time that are American citizens. I damn sure see ’em in California. We’ve got poor, impoverished, starving people who were born and raised in this nation. How in the hell do we come up with a $53 million pilot program for illegals, but folks who are here legally, are born here, we don’t have enough for them?
Just like we can come up with billions for Ukraine, but somehow someway we can’t fix the homeless problem? I’m down for helping Israel. I’m down for helping address the situations with the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, ok? I’m down for helping the Ukrainians and fighting off Russia. What about poor and desolate citizens here? How the hell do you print money for foreign countries, but you don’t print that money to help eradicate folks that are starving right here in the streets of America who were born and raised here?!
Milk doesn't need to cost seven dollars, bread doesn't need to cost five dollars, don’t get me started with how much sugar costs. You can talk about employment all you want to, you can talk about the labor participation rate, but guess what? If you ain’t making no damn money, and you gotta get two jobs to pay the same prices, or to buy the same amount of stuff that you used to buy and the price is higher than it used to be because of inflation then guess what? What are you really accomplishing? That’s why Trump is on the verge of getting elected, re-elected. Because when he was in office there was a flourishing economy.
