We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I think it was a self-promotional lark, but it turned serious. Now what? Get out, Donald. You have had your fun. Either that, or get yourself educated. Begin with the US Constitution (that means the rules that constitute the union and the government, Donald).
Even some of Trump's strong supporters are having trouble defending his brand of crazy. Ann Coulter, one of the most incoherent, attention-grabbing people out there, has been fervently defending Trump all over the place. Yet even she is having trouble sometimes defending him.
Defending billionaire businessman Donald Trump is like constantly having to bail a teenage son from prison, author and political commentator Ann Coulter groused in a recent radio interview.
"I'm a little testy with our man right now. Our candidate is mental! Do you realize our candidate is mental?" Coulter said jokingly during a taping of an episode of the "Milo Yiannopoulos Show," which is scheduled to air in full this weekend. "It's like constantly having to bail out your 16-year-old son from prison."
Mr. Trump's been interested in politics since he worked for Presidential candidate Reagan, and he's talked about in interviews ever since then. Gimme a break. Cegielski never worked for the Trump organization, set up her Super PAC without its approval and was told to shut down. She's an opportunist looking for her two-minutes of fame, which she is getting thanks to the LSM who are more than interested in digging up any slant to the news cycle that might be negative for this candidate. It's a pity that she's getting this attention.
One does not challenge this GOP elite without placing one's life in jeopardy. Mr. Trump takes on this candidacy for love of the country and its people.
The party deserves all of this and all those in the party complaining about Trump are part of our problem. Two back-to-back historic off year elections squandered because of poor leadership who refused to take on the Democrats in any manner. Both sides are in it for their own gain, so stop blindly supporting either one. Hope it doesn't stop until Ryan, McConnell and all the other RINO's are forced out in disgrace.
I started out thinking that the Trump campaign was a stunt, or theater. Initially, I admit to gleefulness over his sticking fingers in the eyes of the self anointed elites. I’m frankly surprised that he stuck with it. I feel bad for the working people who have invested so much hope in him, whether he earned it or not. I don’t know where they go, if he drops out or is forced out. That is where my sympathies lie, with the people who are tired of the empty platitudes and don’t want handouts but want real jobs and a future for their children.
Whether he meant to or not, he has certainly held up a mirror and exposed the pols, the media, the pundits, and consultant class as a clown club. Does anybody have any dignity, at this point, besides Bernie.
