I was up until 3 this morning and have some wonderful recordings of shaken tv news anchors and Hillary supporters in tears that will entertain me for years to come.
Michael Gerson, I’m looking at you.
To my chagrin, and to the country’s benefit, Trump was magnanimous in victory. Had I my way, he would have walked up to the podium and pulled out a copy of last Saturday’s Newsweek with its arrogant Madam President cover and recreated the iconic Dewey Defeats Truman moment.
Then, he would have just smiled. Reached into his jacket pocket and pulled out a pen. Then into his pants pocket and pulled out his phone. Wave them in the media’s face and said, “How does this sound now, you rotten motherfuckers?”
Of course, that’s not what happened. Even though they deserve it.
The media jumped to their usual script about how now the onus lies with Trump to heal an America thoroughly divided by him in their eyes. Not one divided by eight years of the Democrats’ non-stop identity politics and steroidal political correctness with the help of a highly partisan leftwing media that never found a bar too low to slither under or an objective pretense they didn’t wipe their asses on.
The fact is that 50 million Americans (living and dead) and untold numbers of illegal aliens saw a woman – the most hated and uncharismatic public figure in a generation – who has a potentially life threatening health problem, zero accomplishments, a record of diplomatic failure spanning the globe, a 40 year track record of being a conniving, lying, hateful corruptocrat who used the government to persecute her political enemies, spit on our military, and who endangered our national security for illegal campaign contributions and they voted for her anyway.
If you took away Carlos Danger’s laptop and penchant for pedophilia, she would be President right now. And that is utterly terrifying to have come so close to the abyss by a million votes.
I’ll quote what Rachel Maddow said about our side’s voters early this morning: “We can’t just hope they’ll all be dead in 10 years”.
Same to you, bitch.
Now we go onto the next phase. The one where John McCain, Lispy Graham, Paul Ryan, Bob Corker, Lamar Alexander, and Kelly Ayotte preemptively surrender a hard fought Senate majority to Democrats so that MSNBC will portray them as Reasonable Republicans ™.
In which case, delenda est The Republican Party. And take the Bush family with you.
