While it was immensely satisfying to watch the utter humiliation of the TRUMP TREASON COLLUSION RUSSIANS! liberals, that joy paled in comparison to the schadenfreude that came from watching the crestfallen Never Trump bitter-enders as they saw all their dreams die.
Donald Trump is not going to be impeached; heck, it looks like hes going to be reelected. And the Fredocon losers who went all in on opposing him because Oh well I never! are flat busted.
Now, its not really fair to imply that the Never Trumpers hate Trump solely because hes vulgar and crude or, as normal people see it, unwilling to meekly take the guff the Never Trumpers country club class pals dish out like a proper gentleman should. They do find him aesthetically displeasing, but it also gnaws at them because every time he stands up to the garbage Democrats, the garbage press, or the garbage jerks and pervs of Hollywood, his refusal to knuckle-under reminds Team Fail that they dont have the stones to do the same. He shames their cowardly weakness.
Its clear, in retrospect, that George W. Bushs supine acceptance of the abuse the elite heaped upon him was not because he was too classy and too decent to respond in kind. Since Obama left office and he rediscovered his vocal cords, Bush has had zero problem trashing Trump and Trump supporters who, like many of us, stood by Bush in the '00s while Bush was treading water in a sea of mediocrity. No, its clear that W was afraid to fight back against fellow members of the ruling class. He cared about being part of the club. Not The Donald. Trump, by fighting, demonstrates that the establishment GOPers are weak. And it eats at them.
But besides providing a manly contrast to their own gimp-like submission to the leftist establishment, Trump infuriates the Never Trumpers for another reason. Hes kicked them out of their comfy sinecures. One of Trumps magical powers is to make his enemies reveal their own grift complicity, and boy, have they ever. As a result, while once the mandarins of Conservative, Inc., traded on their insider influence and privilege, under Trump they are outsiders. Copies of the Weekly Standard used to be all over the Bush White House. Now, if its inept crew had not slammed it into an iceberg, you would be lucky to find a few pages at the bottom of Barrons pet iguanas cage.
Bill Kristol, Max Boot, and all the rest are nobodies, relegated to occasionally joining CNN panels and fighting with Ana Navarro over the doughnuts in the green room. Wheres Bob Corker now? Jeff Flake hasnt even got an MSNBC gig; I think last week he was the dude who offered to supersize my order.
They are reduced to occasionally popping up on Twitter to inspire a session of Weakheart Whack-A-Mole from actual conservatives. Just look at Senator for Some Reason Mitt Romney. The guy I am sorry I voted for in 2012 is always eager to say something prissy about the president to try to please the same people who, back in 2012, accused him of being a racist and giving a lady cancer. For his obedience, he gets a tasty treat and a pat on the head, like the good doggie he is. But everyone knows that if the elite ever thought that the Distinguished Gentleman From Whatever State He Thinks He Can Get Elected In Next might actually pose a threat to the status quo, hed be figuratively caged up and driven to Canada on the roof.
So, what is the future of the Never Trump brand of failure-phile cons, since they do not have one in our party at least not in the short-term? Except for the loudest and dumbest among them, they will lie low and bide their time. Being Never Trump means never giving up the notion that someday the unwashed masses of the conservative base will someday come to their senses, grow tired of winning, and beg the same coterie of feckless failures, whose dismal inability to conserve anything led to the base selecting Donald Trump in the first place, to return to power.
On Capitol Hill and in the agencies and think tanks, there are secret Never Trumpers hoping to wait out this madness, counting the days until some squishy Jeb!-ish nominee named something like Marco will usher in a bright and beautiful new era of efficiently managed decline. Because thats what they do slow down the inevitable victory of the progressives while maximizing their own power and privilege. Trumps refusal to be satisfied with merely losing slower infuriates them. They not only get tired of all the winning they actively hate all the winning.
So, we must remain vigilant. We must strike ruthlessly when we detect these weak and defeatist tendencies in our conservative leaders, both inside politics and in the conservative media. Never Trump is really Never Win. To the extent that Trumpism means fighting for victory, being woke to the fact that the establishment is garbage, and not giving a damn what our much-worse betters think, we must be Always Trump.
Trumps refusal to be satisfied with merely losing slower infuriates them...
That’s the BEST sentence I’ve read in a while.
Except that letter some blond sent me but I can’t post that here.
ALSO, it is saying ALL bush i and ii did, if even that, was SLOW down the losing.
Trump has changed what I expect from a President.
I hope it has changed many that way.
Always Trump. I like this guys sarcastic style of writing.
Suicide would be one option.
What do the Never Trump Losers do now?
Continue to lose.
Welcome to the Era of Schadenfreude.
We earned it.
They double-down, of course.
Trump ought to be shaking-scared now that Weld has called for him to resign....
Never-Trumpers don’t think they are losing: they expect a revival of liberal Republicanism in their future.
“Senator for Some Reason Mitt Romney”
I don’t know. But I’ve saved a lot of money by not donating to any solicitation that shares one dime with the RNC. Even the Trump/Pence campaign does that. And I used to donate frequently.
If we plan to keep Always Trump going, we need to elect Sarah Sanders in 2024.
They want a woman president? Lets give them a woman president.
A good choking doggie, that is.
Schlichter dislikes Mitt almost as much as I do. I admire that.
It was W's assigned function to slowly bring about the Islamisation of the United States without triggering a conservative backlash from the populace. He performed his task perfectly.
If you view him from this perspective, suddenly none of the moves he made look stupid anymore. You don't see any gaffes or miscalculations. And every move and word he has said from the beginning of his first primary to today comes into sharp focus as a cohesive whole.
They are here....... right here. The Never Trump Freepers are all the time, moaning and whining their complaints that Trump is not doing what they voted for. They whine their lamentations about a lackluster presidency
They are still so emotionally involved with being wrong they are unable to accept victory and get on with the Trump program
George Bush the elder:
When I think of him now I think of his stint as a Navy pilot in the Pacific. Read “Flyboys”. On a flight to bomb one of the small Pacific islands his plane was shot down. His two crewmates died. He ended up in the ocean and was picked up by one of our submarines where he stayed for a month.
“Flyboys” is not for those with a weak stomach. It describes a lot of brutality, mainly Japanese. Example: they cut up and ate people while they were still alive.
This “vulgar and crude” trope is particularly interesting. A perusal of Gospel scripture finds numerous instances of Jesus being accused of much the same crimes.
He associated with known criminals.
He broke the laws of Moses.
He consorted with harlots.
He assaulted authority figures.
He made outrageous claims about himself.
He was a scoundrel.
The high and mighty hated him. They accused him of inciting violence and other nasty things. Jesus taunted important people.
Not only is Trump not Jesus, Jesus was not Jesus according to the woke of his day. Why, after all, do you believe they killed him? And why are these same luminaries going after Trump with blood in their eyes?
