Donald Trump will not release his tax returns. Ever. Not before the convention. Not before the election. Not after the election. How do I know this? Trump has never been shy about his riches and, despite common perspectives to the contrary, he hates confrontation where he’s called out for his weaknesses. Knowing this, if he has nothing to hide, he would have released them already.
In 2016, the popular place to find out what a pundit or politician is thinking is Twitter. As such, we’ve been monitoring David French’s Twitter account looking for signs of whether he’s going to run as a third-party conservative against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Twitter didn’t disappoint.
I would love to say that I knew everything there was to know about David French before today. Like most, I had to Google him. I’ve read many of his articles in the past. In fact, in scanning his list of articles on National Review, I realized that I’d read the majority of them. He has a knack for catching the attention of Christian conservatives with his headlines.
If it weren’t so clearly obvious, I’d have to turn this into a long story. It’s extremely obvious that the Trump “protests” are campaign gold for Donald Trump, so one might think that there would be no need to write this article in the first place. Unfortunately, the subjects of the article are the ones that don’t get it.
Yahoo’s Katie Couric and NBC’s Brian Williams have a few things in common. They were both considered to be respectable journalists at one point. They used to be trusted to deliver the news appropriately. They both lie.
The narrative now among many Republicans and conservatives is that Donald Trump might be bad, but he’s not worse than Hillary Clinton. That’s debatable, but one thing is certain: embracing Trump makes losing the Senate and possibly even the House of Representatives a near certainty.
One of the biggest reasons that many Republicans are claiming to either reluctantly accept Donald Trump or to not accept him at all is that he isn’t a conservative. Moreover, he’s actually a liberal on nearly everything outside of immigration; Mitt Romney and John McCain appear to be right-wing extremists compared to Trump. This really isn’t the point.
Under normal circumstance, we try to stick to policy in our defense of conservatism and America. Rarely do we make fun of anyone for being silly; that’s the stuff for rags like Salon or Gawker. However, the way that a Presidential candidate communicates gives us insight into how they would act if elected and Donald Trump’s self-written press release is a clear example that this man is not fit to be President.
Yes, the comments on this post are going to be brutal. In fact, I’m not even going to promote this post. I’m just going to write it up, Tweet it out, and see what comes of it. There’s a scenario, albeit an extremely unlikely one, where Ted Cruz is the GOP nominee.
Hillary Clinton might just be the worst serious Presidential candidate in modern history. In fact, the only person who can realistically give her a run for her money is her opposition on the Republican side, Donald Trump. This isn’t an article that will try to determine which liberal, corrupt, deceptive major party frontrunner is worse. If anything, this is free advice to Trump supporters who have a strong tendency to make the wrong arguments when attempting to defend their chosen candidate.
