We can be grateful to Mr. Trump for illustrating exactly how hollow and meaningless all of his “far left” and “radical opponents” rhetoric actually is. Christianity Today, founded by Billy Graham and still a leading Evangelical newspaper has called for his conviction and removal from office now that he has been impeached. A very clear the emperor is not wearing any clothes moment. His childish and churlish response and his application of such shop worn epithets to this very conservative organization shows that “far left” has come to mean “sees Trump for the jackass that he is.”
This helps explain the extraordinary degree of certainty that some people bring with their assertions of nonsense.
There are plenty of similar opinions from a variety of traditionally conservative sources. The source of this one may be pretty significant.
Today, finally, Donald Trump will be impeached. Never was such shame more thoroughly deserved. Mr. Trump is an absolute disgrace in every possible way. He has lived a life of corruption, deceit, sybaritic self-indulgence and debauchery. He has broken every trust. He has betrayed promises made to each of his wives, his mistresses, his contractors, his investors, his lenders, his subordinates, even the charities he founded and the students who idolized him – everyone. As President he has brought an unprecedented level of mendacity, banality, divisiveness, criminality and corruption to our most sacred office. He is a weak man’s idea of a strong man. He is a stupid man’s idea of a smart man. He is a traitor’s idea of a patriot. He is an embarrassment and a danger to us all. It is time for him to go.
To each of you who continue to support him and spread his lies . . . “You’ve done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?”
So, when the reports started coming out that the eagerly anticipated IG report about the origins of the “deep state” investigation of Russian campaign interference had found that there was no there, there I was admonished to wait for the actual report before getting “too giddy.” Okay. Here it is.
And as I predicted many months ago, it confirms that the laughable charges of a “deep state” conspiracy to hurt Mr. Trump was just another of his countless lies. Part of his billowing smoke screen of falsehoods to hoodwink his gullible supporters.
The sad thing is that any thinking person could have made the same prediction. The idea that the “deep state” was out to hurt Mr. Trump NEVER made ANY sense. It was, in fact, their ill-advised actions put Mr. Trump in the White House – one of those “inconvenient truths” that “conservatives” never could incorporate in their “thinking” about the looming “bombshells” that were going to come out.
The drooling anticipation by some of the Trump lovers around here for the looming bombshell “deep state” reports by IG Horowitz and U.S. Attorney John Durham was predicted – by me – to end in yet another bitter disappointment for those conned by Mr. Trump. It has. There is no there, there. There never was. At some point will embarrassment set in for those so eager to be gulled?
