Coulter savages Trump


#1

Brutal stuff here. I can actually respectfully disagree with Coulter. She’s basically saying “I knew Trump was an evil and disgusting human being, but I thought maybe that’s what it was going to take to get policy done.” Her premise was pretty crazy, but at least she’s not stupid.

The basic factory setting on the perception of Trump is: gigantic douchebag. This is a man who manufactured fake Time magazine covers featuring himself with the headline, “Donald Trump: The ‘Apprentice’ is a television smash!” so that he could put framed copies of it on the walls of his clubs.

His business is convincing people with lowbrow taste to give him their money.

He’s a vulgar publicity hound who used to call reporters in a fake voice and pretend to be his own PR agent, “John Miller” or “John Barron,” so he could brag that actresses wanted to date him.

It’s not as if a majority of his voters weren’t clear-eyed about what kind of man he is. If anything, Trump’s vulgar narcissism made his vow to build a wall more believable. Respectable politicians had made similar promises over the years – and they always betrayed the voters. Maybe it took a sociopath to ignore elite opinion and keep his word.

From the article:

What else were we going to do? He was the only one talking sense. Unfortunately, that’s all he does: talk. He’s not interested in doing anything that would require the tiniest bit of effort.

She’s got to know that’s the silliest thing she’s ever written. President Trump may be the busiest, doing-est president we’ve ever had. I’m guessing she just wrote it to apply pressure to get him to stand firm and veto any bill without wall funding.

Well, maybe it worked because President Trump just said,

What they are just beginning to realize is that I will not sign any of their legislation, including infrastructure, unless it has perfect Border Security. U.S.A. WINS!

God bless President Trump! May the Lord give him the will to stand firm against the contemptuous, open-border Democrats.

The Lord generally doesn’t bless sociopathic liars with no respect for the law and who cheat on their pregnant wives with porn stars.


#4

That is one of the most disgusting, dishonest comments I have read on these boards. Just because you are a socialist and don’t agree with him is no reason to write such things.

Hosea 1:2

When the Lord first spoke through Hosea, the Lord said to Hosea, “Go, take to yourself a wife of whoredom and have children of whoredom, for the land commits great whoredom by forsaking the Lord.”


#6

I wish I could “like” this response twice…


#7

Am I supposed to take this verse and passage as a counter to J’s comment that the Lord doesn’t bless sociopathic liars with no respect and who cheat on their pregnant wives with porn stars? I’m presuming so since you are in defense of the president in this thread, but I’m failing to see the connection.

This passage doesn’t show blessings for a sociopathic lying cheater, but it does talk about God rejecting the nation of Israel. Would you elaborate please.,

Sociopath? I just read a little about sociopaths online and now I’m not sure I could distinguish a sociopath from any successful politician. But President Trump is doing what he campaigned on. He’s doing what we elected him to do. The word “sociopath” has an extremely negative connotation, but President Trump is extremely good, so it’s the wrong word to use.

The verse was intended to show that the Lord God doesn’t follow man’s script on how the Lord should work or man’s thinking on what kind of person the Lord should work through.

It may be ironic that the Lord God instructed Hosea to marry a prostitute so he could use her as a metaphor to communicate Israel’s prostitution. But he did. And no matter what bad qualities the left assigns to President Trump, the Lord God can and is using him to bless America and maybe even the world. That’s why I invoked the Lord’s blessing on him.

The conservative movement has been totally morally compromised by the Trump movement. It’s shocking how quickly and easily it happened. A movement traditionally dedicated to notions of duty and honor now cheers on a vulgar draft-dodging playboy while he wraps himself in the flag and insults the service of war heroes.

Calling John McCain a “war hero” is an insult to war heroes.


#11

The life and career of John McCain was a mixed bag and hardly a roll model. While he did persevere in Hanoi and serve with honor, when he came home, he became an unreliable maverick who seemed to have few principles except that he liked to stir the pot. In the end he dishonored himself when he sided with those who took his misguided support for their programs and give him nothing in return. In short they played him for a fool.

I voted for and give his campaign money in 2008. I don’t regret the vote, but I do regret the financial contribution.


#12

McCain grew up as a pampered, privileged fool. He lived most of his life in the exact same way. One would have thought, being the son and grandson of a Navy admiral, he’d have been subjected to a degree of discipline. He wasn’t. If he had ANY self-discipline at all, it was in order to preserve his plans for his future. He didn’t refuse repatriation after capture out of some sense of “solidarity” with other POWs. He refused because he KNEW his father would condemn him for accepting and in order to preserve his political viability after discharge from the Navy. Had he accepted, his father would have virtually disowned him and any hopes of elective office would have vanished like fog on a hot day.


#13

Trump’s wrapping himself in the flag is a form of compensation: he realizes that, as a cowardly draft-dodging playboy who happens to be the only post-war American president from a family without a single member to have ever served in the U.S. armed forces, he’s vulnerable on the subject of patriotism. So he has to play up the hyper-patriot facade.


#14

Turns out draft-dodging actually runs in Trump’s family. His grandfather originally immigrated from Germany to avoid military service requirements.


#15

And you know this HOW? Who was it that gave you insight into President Trump’s grandfather’s psyche?

Like all liberals, J.Anderson thinks that he is an expert on all things and has a mind which holds infinite amounts of knowledge. In short, he thinks he knows everything and is therefore qualified to tell people how they should live their lives. This is one of the cornerstones of modern liberalism.

For the record I didn’t go into the military either. I had a student deferment in the 1960s and then had the good luck to get a high lottery number for the draft. You can pile on me all you want, J.Anderson, because your opinions have come to mean nothing to me. Like I’ve written before, you are as much of a 19th liberal as Karl Marx and King George III were.

A 19th century liberal would be opposed to the daft. It is inefficient because it forces people into occupations that are not of their choosing. A basic principle of 19th century liberalism was that the economy was at its best when people were allowed to make decisions about their employment and other economic endeavors. Coercion was to be avoided unless it was absolutely necessary for the public good.

I agree, to a small degree. I didn’t much like serving with draftees–especially in Vietnam. If you check, I’ll wager that virtually 100% of the instances of “fragging” were committed by draftees. You simply CANNOT fully trust someone who has to be coerced to defend your back. That doesn’t apply to EVERYONE, of course, but does to a fair percentage of draftees. In almost EVERY case where a returning GI was caught trying to smuggle drugs into the U.S., they were draftees coming home to discharge so they thought they’d struck it rich. You could buy a kilo of pure, uncut heroin in Vietnam for $1000, bring it home and cut it and make over a million. I knew a guy who was arrested with 3/4ths of a pound of UNCUT heroin and it was valued on the street at $700,000. He died in prison a couple of years ago. He WENT to prison because he was unable to pay his attorney with half of his stash before going to trial which is what he promised. His stash was located after he was arrested and amounted to another 3/4ths of a pound of uncut. He’d buried it under his mobile home.

Trump loves people who love him. He got 80% of the US Marine Corp vote.

Meanwhile I doubt he even cleared 20% with the gender queer smug white yuppie voter.

He’s simply appealing to his base.

I think it’s weird how the entire media is blaming Ann Coulter for the shutdown now, when she never said Trump should do that. She’s been saying from day 1 that he doesn’t need Congressional funding. So if he were listening to her, he never would have done this. As far as I can see, he was about ready to just give up on funding the wall, and go do other things. Then his base whacked him upside the head, and he panicked and didn’t know what to do. His advisors are trash, and Democrats had ZERO reason to give in to him. So bluffed for 2-3 weeks and then folded in defeat.

IMO, this barrage on Ann has nothing to do with what Trump did - but rather what the media fears he will do. Which is to actually listen to Ann(which he should - she’s better than every person in his administration on this issue). Trump should listen to Ann for once.

He doesn’t need Congressional approval. He’s the C&C. Build the wall - no excuses. “Nancy Pelosi won’t let me” is as lame as Obama’s “The Republicans won’t let me” excuse. It didn’t fly with Obama, and he was a much nicer person. Nobody likes Trump as a charming fellow. We support him because he’s supposed to be effective and get things done outside of the D.C. way.

If he can’t get this done, there’s not even much point in re-electing him, because he’ll make a terrible politician president. He’s probably even less fit to govern through traditional means than GWB. Trump is starting to operate in a box, and that’s not a good thing. He’s not suited to Beltway politics, and with each passing day he seems to be losing touch with his business senses.

Build the Wall or I vote for Bernie. - Signed, the 80,000 people who wouldn’t have voted for Jeb! and actually got you elected.

I have to disagree, CWolf. I agree that President Trump’s “advisors” are mostly lousy. They advised him to shut down the government to “force” the Dimwits to come to his table and negotiate. They did nothing of the sort and, with the cooperation of the media, shouldered ALL the blame for the shut-down on him…to his detriment. He needs new “advisors” who aren’t afraid to tell the Dim-wits “NO!” However, IF he gets the wall built…even if he has to use his emergency powers to do it, he’ll be reelected in a similar landslide to Reagan’s. The point is, he HAS to build the wall–or something very close to a wall. If he fails to get this done after staking his presidency on it, he’ll be a G.H.W. Bush one-termer and we’ll get another crook in the White House like Clinton was (and is.)

The guy who would welcome in and offer welfare to illegals with open arms? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

What were your principles again, exactly?
