No, it's not possible.

It is so indisputably obvious that he's the greatest president in US history that anyone who cannot recognize it can only be suffering from a mental ailment.

All the rabbonim agree!

Greatest ever is a bit of hyperbole. Wonder what Washington, Jefferson,and Lincoln would say to that...

You're just letting your irrational hate show.

I hope I’m not bringing down an upbeat thread here with a serious answer.
I would say that it certainly is possible.

BUT
1) it depends who your audience is. There are those who will definitely take any whiff of negative opinion about POTUS or his policies as rabid irrational hatred
2) it also depends on the specific criticism, and the intellectual honesty or dishonesty shown. There are some criticisms that are just way beyond a normal standard.

This kind of thing goes both ways, by the way (see caveat 1). I am a very strong Trump supporter. DH is a “Trump can do no wrong” guy - and this comes up from time to time. I find it a little irritating that DH has no good answer to “Is there anything Trump could do that would bother you?”. DH is highly intelligent. But in his opinion, Trump is a genius at what he is doing. All of his moves turn out to be brilliant. And his tweets trolling the left are just amazing. Etc etc. He has Trump Adoration Syndrome 😂 and I view it as just as irrational as TDS.

This is very perceptive. And it makes sense. The more irrational one side is, the more pushback there is from the other side.

Doesn't work for me.

I was born in a leap year and I think that messes it up.
