I’m not one to regularly bash the liberal media, but this time things have gone too far.
Two days ago Donald Trump provided five names on his foreign policy team, and the press has laughed and laughed and laughed over the inexperience and thin resumes of the offerings. In particular, Trump has been taken to task for including George Papadopoulos. According to the Washington Post, Papadopoulos is a 2009 college graduate whose resume includes that he was a U.S. Representative at the 2012 Geneva International Model United Nations (for reference, this would be the equivalent of me still noting that I won a college journalist award. Which, ahem, I didn’t). He comes across as a worthless lightweight with no business being involved in a presidential race.
Shame on the Washington Post.
Shame on the liberal media.
I don’t know who supplied that information, but it’s wrong and harmful and I hope Trump sues every publication that dare spread such filth.
In truth, George Papadopoulos is a good man; a strong man; a capable man. George Papadopoulos is a retired football player who spent years as sportscaster at Chicago TV station, WBJX. When his former teammate, the great Bear wide receiver Travis Long, died in a horrible automobile accident, George and his wife, the socialite M’am Papadopoulos, not only took in Long’s son, Webster, but ultimate adopted him. Granted, this was the early-to-mid 1980s, when wealthy white couples adopting orphaned undersized black children was something of a thing. But, still, George showed tremendous compassion.
One time, for example, Webster burned down the Papadopoulos’ apartment with a science kit. George forgave him, and even offered a soft explanatory monologue accompanied by music. Another time, one of Webster’s friends was kidnapped, and George led the search to find him. He even hung up signs.
The accomplishments are endless; the trophies could fill 100 hallways. Trust me, Donald Trump knows exactly what he’s doing on this one.
So, truly, let’s leave George Papadopoulos alone, and allow him to drive Webster to school, pack his lunch, offer life lessons and solve the Middle East crisis.
