Dear Trump Voters: Youre a Bunch of Idiots

Dear Trump Voters: You’re a Bunch of Idiots
Face it. It’s a train wreck top to bottom. For America, and for conservatism. The sooner we pull the plug on this charlatan, the better.
by Matt Lewis


Dear Trump Voter: I told you so.

..............

Whether Trump is obfuscating about Russia, failing to specifically condemn racism and white nationalism in Charlottesville, Virginia, opining about the beauty of Confederate memorials, or attacking fellow Republicans (the list is long and includes Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Sen. Jeff Flake), his administration is an utter disaster for the GOP and the cause of conservatism.

This is especially amazing when you consider the GOP controls all levers of power (talk about missed opportunities!), the economy seems to be humming along, and (knock on wood) Trump’s foreign policy of peace through saber-rattling is, for now, working.

“Now look, I realize that a lot of good Republicans voted for someone other than Trump in the GOP primary. Further, I realize that Trump lost the popular vote in the general election. So I don’t want to paint with too broad a brush when I say that you were warned about this man—and you ignored our warnings. We were right; you were wrong.”

“The masses, it turns out, sometimes are asses. Sometimes the people who actually pay close attention to politics know more than the disgruntled populists and nationalists who are willing to gamble on the future of this great republic—and on the reputation of a conservative philosophy that goes from Aristotle to Burke to Buckley—in order to boost a reality show host. You elected your guy, and look where it got us.”

“Congratulations, or something.”

1. What sucks about all of this . . .

. . . . is that it's going to take at least two decades of straight Democratic rule to undo all of the upcoming damage. IF we're able to get that.

Once the repair happens, the Strict Father instinct will kick in on this new generation of conservative voters and they're going to put someone in who's even worse than Trump. It's their default. We're only good for cleaning up Republican messes when they should have never happened in the first place.

2. I love when they put bumper stickers on their cars

"Look at me, I'm the idiot who voted for Trump"
Always an interesting peek at who's behind the wheel.
