Gen. John Kelly may have performed a most excellent maneuver. Perhaps his best, as a news headline blared: “White House Officials Discuss Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner Departing By 2018.”
This is terrific news for Deplorables, whether we want to admit it or not. The two New York liberals, a nepotistic addition to the administration, have been a disaster for the agenda which President Trump promised and for which we voted.
Alas, Deplorables, at least on social media, are blaming “dem Jews” for POTUS having largely abandoned his fundamental promise of America First (quit the denial). But Trump has clearly gone neoconservative to gain approval among “con-servatives,” which he’s getting galore. Deplorables aren’t being betrayed by Jews; but by Trump.
We Americans never hold leaders responsible for what they promise and what they fail to deliver. Instead, we retreat to our partisan corners and defend “our” guy (Bush/Trump), no matter what he does to us. He wins; we lose. ‘Tis the American way. The leaders win; the people lose. And everyone seems happy. Not I.
As I see it, a leader is nothing but a hired hand who must deliver on the contract, or else.
