Kelly Ann Conway is the best thing that ever happened to candidate Trump. She has succeeded in modulating his abrasive tone. She is so sweet as she deftly deflects and defends the indefensible.
Under Conway, Trump’s penchant for attacking others who exhibit his own character traits has been elevated to an art form. Hillary Clinton is the bigot. She is the liar. She is corrupt. She is the expert at “pay to play”. She is the one who cannot be trusted.
When it comes to his lack of fitness to serve as President, I do not know where to start. Ironically, Glenn Beck gave me an idea. Beck is the one who calls himself a “Constitutionalist”, even though he was fanning the flames of revolution on Fox just a few years ago. The Constitution provides for elections.
Say what you will about his efforts to stay sane, Beck accurately noted 8/24/16 that, “He (Trump) has riled up the angriest people in the Country.” Having spent a lot of time doing it himself, Beck is well-suited to make such a statement. His demagoguery helped create candidate Trump.
Beck then added, “We are in massive trouble if he is elected. Donald Trump is frightening and we had better stick together (to defeat him).” I would add that, unless he is soundly defeated, the Country will have lost.
When folks such as Glenn Beck start sounding the alarm bells, I suggest it is time to get serious.
Mr. Beck, speaking on “The Last Word”, said Breitbart’s “Steve Bannon (Trump’s latest “golden boy”) describes himself as a Leninist—a destroyer of everything.” Beck himself is “gravely concerned about the future of the Country”. Beck added a great deal more.
This election is one that—more than any other in history—we had better follow closely. To me, it is not overstatement to say that Trump is a danger to the Republic. Voters should do their best to keep track of candidate Trump’s inflammatory rhetoric, his ongoing bullying, and incitement to payback. As establishment conservative journalist George Will said a month ago, “The Republican Party better make sure he loses.”
What am I talking about? What alarms a person of George Will’s stature, among others too numerous to mention? If you do not know, do some reading of books and articles written by people who cannot be easily conned.
Hillary Clinton is no saint. But she is not the devil incarnate either. Thirty years in the public spotlight have brought plenty of mistakes. While putting the best face on them that she can, she has owned them.
Call it hyperbole if you like, but I will take it a step further. If Trump loses a close election, we may be in nearly as much trouble as we would be if he becomes President of the United States of America.
