‘Take Me In, Dear Donald,’ Smiled The Never Trumper Snakes. And Donald Did.

“Lie Down With The Enemy, Get Up Without The Presidency,” I wrote on 2017/03/16.

Trump ran on NOT taking in snakes that’ll bite the American people.

A ballad called “The Snake” became a theme along the Trump campaign. Donald Trump seemed to find “The Snake” a powerful metaphor for his campaign’s impetus.

Yet as soon as Trump took office, he gathered into his Administration many of the Never Trumper reptiles who had never supported the ideas he ran on.

Those idea are precisely the ones denounced in a New York Times’ yellow journalism op-ed:

“I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration: I work for the president but like-minded colleagues and I have vowed to thwart parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations”:

Plainly put, the principles anon wishes to thwart are:

* Diplomacy with Russia and North Korea.
* Tough renegotiation of the multilateral trade agreements that had worked against the American worker.
* Very little sympathy for European and British leaders (“our allies” in the above op-ed), who’d exposed their own Deplorables—their innocent countrymen—to millions of hibernating snakes from the Middle East and North Africa.

Sixty million Americans liked these ideas enough to choose their progenitor, Trump, as their next president.

But not the failing New York Times’ anon.

Take foreign policy: In public and in private, President Trump shows a preference for autocrats and dictators, such as President Vladimir Putin of Russia and North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, and displays little genuine appreciation for the ties that bind us to allied, like-minded nations.

Astute observers have noted, though, that the rest of the administration is operating on another track, one where countries like Russia are called out for meddling and punished accordingly, and where allies around the world are engaged as peers rather than ridiculed as rivals.

On Russia, for instance, the president was reluctant to expel so many of Mr. Putin’s spies as punishment for the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain. He complained for weeks about senior staff members letting him get boxed into further confrontation with Russia, and he expressed frustration that the United States continued to impose sanctions on the country for its malign behavior. But his national security team knew better — such actions had to be taken, to hold Moscow accountable.

Smoke him out, Mr. President. Clean house, for once.

Tucker: Why ruling class loses control in Trump’s presence

Aug. 20, 2018 – 3:33 – Tucker: “Who’s dumber? No it’s not the man who can’t spell “respect.” For dumbness, MSNBC’s the Rev. Al Sharpton has nothing on the New York Times’ Michelle Goldberg.

2:37 minutes in:

Goldberg isn’t gaming our system, she is our system. … Trump terrifies the ruling class, whose main talents are glibness and obedience. That’s enough to succeed in the globalized economy. That’s what the system requires. Lemming-like conformity. On some level, the elites know they’re not very impressive and it worries them. Instead of aiming to become more impressive, they maintain their rule by bullying. … They’re guilty. They’ve watched the country decline, as they’ve ascended. They know what they’ve done. They understand how much they have to lose by changing the way things are.

Tucker is the only non-mediocrity at Fox.

POTUS Trump Neglects Super Stupid Chris Cuomo And Owes Dogs An Apology

Donald Trump, Environmentalism & Animal Rights, Etiquette, Left-Liberalism, Media

As time goes by, my appreciation for President Trump’s noble mission and effortless ability TO DRIVE LEFTIST POND SCUM STARK RAVING BONKERS only increases. But on the matter of Omarosa Manigault Newman, Trump does owe an apology …

… To the dog community for comparing dogs to Omarosa. Animals have feelings, too.

Trump, moreover, should stop discriminating against CNN’s Chris Cuomo and call him names, just as he does Don Lemon. Cuomo gives fellow anchor Mr. Lemon a run for his money. The first is way dumber and sanctimonious than the second. And when the two get together in the segue between their shows, it’s a storm of stupidity and sanctimony.

For his stupid credentials, watch (or read) Cuomo:

My bad: Trump did trash Cuomo, but that was in 2017.

Ideological Friction In The Trump White House Is Real—And A Real Bad Thing

Donald Trump, Ethics, Family, IMMIGRATION, Kids, Media, Political Philosophy, Politics

The president is trying to promote a radical political worldview. When you’re attempting something markedly different—and indeed the perpetually outraged media childishly call his agenda “not normal”—you need people who agree on matters philosophical. And you need a spokesperson who is able to do more than fend off media attack dogs.

President Trump has not gotten these foundations in place. And it’s getting late in the day.

It follows that Ivanka and her Kush boy, as well as those like her who vehemently oppose the Trump-Stephen Miller plank, have no place in this White House.

Let White House Chief of Staff John Kelly at it. He himself is sick-and-tired of the first daughter “playing government.”

Kelly, as was illustrated in “The Matriarchy Is Gunning For John Kelly, is one of Trump’s superb personnel choices. Let Kelly do what he has to do: replace Sarah Stumblebum and get rid of the Royal Kushner Couple (in waiting), among other people. Kelly has the skill-set to FIRE.
