With the implosion of Trump’s campaign and the ensuing chaos in the upper levels of the GOP, we can expect to see more and more of the Trumpling clingers losing their minds.
Trump’s gimp, Sean Hannity, has once again managed to spit out the ball gag and take his impotent frustrations to the airwaves.
“If in 96 days Trump loses this election, I am pointing the finger directly at people like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham and John McCain,” Hannity said. “I have watched these Republicans be more harsh toward Donald Trump than they’ve ever been in standing up to Barack Obama and his radical agenda.
“They did nothing, nothing — all these phony votes to repeal and replace Obamacare, show votes so they can go back and keep their power and get reelected,” Hannity continued. “Sorry, you created Donald Trump, all of you. Because of your ineffectiveness, because of your weakness, your spinelessness, your lack of vision, your inability to fight Obama.”
In this instance, the pathetic little bootlick is not entirely off-base. The people watched as House Republicans did very little to combat Obama’s destructive agenda. When you combine that frustration with a dumbed down segment of bumper sticker voters, who’s knowledge of issues is limited to the aforementioned bumper stickers and internet memes, you get a corrosive mix of electoral angst.
Sadly, outlets like Fox News and talk radio read that seething anger as a ratings boom, and rather than attempt to mobilize society around a common goal of sound policy and free market conservatism, they fed the anger.
In Donald Trump, they found a walking meme to support as the public’s big middle finger to a government that had failed them. Plus, he already had experience in reality TV, so he knew show business. It didn’t matter that he was unqualified. It didn’t matter that he might be unstable. It didn’t even matter that he knew nothing of the job he was applying for. After all, the angry masses know nothing of policy or the job, either, so why should he?
Sean Hannity is probably the single-most pathetic voice to come from the media cesspool, lapping at Trump’s heels, crotch-sniffing and doing his level best to shame his family name for generations to come.
While kernels of reason pepper some of his rant from Wednesday, the overall scope of his words was fanboy lunacy.
“It seems Paul Ryan and some of these other establishment Republican types have taken to the idea that they are going to be true to what it means to be a Republican,” Hannity said. “I don’t think there’s anything about Trump’s agenda that isn’t conservative except maybe with the issue of trade.”
- Trump IS the establishment, and the worst kind of crony capitalist.
- Nothing Trump has said bears any resemblance to conservatism.
Hannity is right. Trump is the only alternative to Hillary. Anyone in the GOP who complains that Trump is for whatever reason unsuitable is helping HRC become president, give what is likely to be an irreversible and permanent liberal supremacy to the Supreme Court, further decimate race relations, open borders and fuck up foreign policy as she did before.
DrJohn’s post on this blog is correct – if HRC becomes president, the United States of America will be on a irretrievable path. American Exceptionalism will be gone, because there will be nothing left that makes us exceptional.
@Dreadnought: Four years of HRC then 8 years of Rubio better than 4 years of Trump.
That’s where you guys are terribly wrong. It will be 8 years of HRC, not 4. Demographics and the utter corruption of our educational system will ensure that the millennial vote will be solidly democrat – HRC will continue the Title IX attacks on freedom of speech in universities and high schools so that new voters over the next decade will perceive ideals like self-reliance, responsibility and individual freedom as alien and distasteful as our generation sees Nazism or salafism. It’s happening already.
If HRC wins this election, it is the end of conservatism as a meaningful political power in this country. And I blame the GOP for it as much as the Democrats. The GOP wastes its time and goodwill pandering to evangelical nonsense like banning abortion and blocking gay marriage – face it, that battle is lost, leave them be and concentrate on more important things.
So you changed the subject and started talking about Obama, or Hillary? I can’t tell.
No, it seems you intend to point out major deficiencies in Trump when you describe both Hillary and Obama to a T. The major difference in them is that they clearly are in it for the politics and the payoff, personally, to themselves, whereas Trump already has all the money he needs. If you want to make a point, you need ‘contrasting’ situations. Such as bought and paid for lifetime politicians vs a self made entrepreneur.
