Without a doubt, no president in modern history has managed to fire up his base of voters like Donald Trump.
Everywhere Trump goes he speaks to a packed venue.
People wait in line for days to get in.
That is truly remarkable; it shows that Trump has connected with his voters in a personal, intimate way that no one can change.
Only Trump himself could break that bond, and he’s not likely to do that anytime soon.
That drives his political opponents crazy because there is literally no one in the Democrat Party that excites their base in the same way.
But Trump is one man; his voters are in the tens of millions. And it’s us the left really hates.
They have repeatedly demonstrated that as one of them did so again, blatantly, on Tuesday.
The guilty party this time is New York Times reporter Katie Benner.
She thinks we’re all “enemies of the state” and believes we should be treated as such.

'Today's #January6thSelectCommittee underscores the America's current, essential natsec dilemma: Work to combat legitimate national security threats now entails calling a politician's supporters enemies of the state,' Benner wrote.
'As Americans, we believe that state power should not be used to work against a political figure or a political party,' she added in the since-deleted tweets.
'But what happens if a politician seems to threaten the state? If the politician continues to do so out of office and his entire party supports that threat?'
She went on to suggest that the Pelosi-selected committee would deal with the 'dilemma' because it was left 'unresolved' following investigations into false claims that the 2016 Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government as well as a pair of impeachments of the former president.
'That leaves it up to voters, making even more essential free, fair access to the polls,' she concluded.
She eventually deleted those tweets, but her message is plain and her feelings are no doubt genuine.
But let’s extrapolate: How do enemies of the state get treated?
You know: Loss of rights and liberty. Loss of justice. Loss of freedom. And eventually, loss of life.
These people cannot be ‘bargained’ or ‘reasoned’ with.
Benner’s side wants to destroy our republic. And us with it.
Our side wants to preserve it.
We can’t get any more politically polarized than that.
