President Donald Trump is about to sign an order on religious liberty protecting Christians from the Gaystapo.
On this, as on much else, there had been rumours Trump was going to renege on his promises. On this, as on much else, Trump will prove he can deliver.
However, it's fair to say we must all get accustomed to Trump's style. He invites Mitt “Meow” Romney to talks for a possible job as Secretary of State : it takes weeks for the world to understand he was simply mocking and humiliating the poor idiot. He appears to favour Ryancare and to want it passed, it takes weeks for the world to understand he did not want to be accused of sabotaging Ryan and was going for the best possible outcome for him (Ryan smashes against the wall, and can't accuse him of anything) or for the second best (Ryancare passes and Trump has merely helped the guy to get something done). Then we will, one day, have another version, that passes, and Trump will get all the merit for stepping up to the plate and doing the job for the incompetent cuck. Boy, this one is a smart cookie.
Trump has a strange style. He isn't there for the fast win. He doesn't care what you think of him today provided he has his eyes focused on his objectives. Those who think he will be caving in on the wall just make me smile. He doesn't need the funding now, and prefers to eat his enemy one bite at a time. Gingrich tried the total war and lost. Trump isn't acting without thinking. Trump is the “art of the deal”, not the Samurai type.
The executive order on religious liberty will probably not be as though as the draft, though politico & Co. have all interest to cry wolf. But again, what has not come now will come later. It isn't smart to think Trump will compromise what has brought him to victory to please little darling daughter and son-in-law, and all those people ranting against whom got him elected.
At the same time, you must not expect a Crusader or an ideological fighter. Trump is a businessman, not a warrior. He is good at extracting all he can (and some more) when he can, with patience or with vengeance according to the situation on the ground.
The “Trump Way” will not please us always. He will not deliver on everything. He will drive us mad at times (Romney? Really??!!); but there is logic and purpose in what he does, and he will end up doing enormously better than every Clinton, Romney or McCain would have done.
Those who are most disappointed in him are those who have thought “America First” meant brutal Isolationism no matter what, or those who thought they had found the Spotless Crusader. Unrealistic positions both.
Three months later, Trump has already delivered Gorsuch, which is huge, and has taken decisive action in many other areas (from the TPP to the coal industry, from the pipelines to North Korea, from Syria to the Canadian wood and milk; this without counting the executive orders battled by absurdly politicised judicial activists). The future already looks much different than if Hitlery had won, and Gorsuch's appointment alone takes care of that.
My suggestion: keep calm and trust the Donald.
Hitlery Clinton has complained once again that she should have won the election and it was the Russians/Comey/the locusts/ the planet alignment that robbed her of her mega party with crashing of ceilings and all that. This is so embarrassing Breitbart charitably ignores it, but the Buggers Broadcasting Communism have thought they should report on it, being clearly unable to cope with Trump's victory themselves.
It is nothing short of astonishing how Hitlery keeps flogging this dead horse. If she wants to continue her political career (I am sure she wants: donations to the Clinton Foundation have collapsed when it became clear she did not have any power anymore, so if she wants to keep the money flowing she and Billy boy must use whatever political leverage they have for as long as… she can) she should have the honesty of drawing a line under her defeat, admit some innocuous shortcoming, congratulate Trump on his victory, admitting he has won fair and square and move on as an adult would.
Instead, the woman has conceded the morning after the election – after sobering up – and has been bitching against the result since.
It is rumoured she now wants to be the Mayor of New York. The position has two huge advantages: you only need to win the nomination to win the race (something she can certainly do if she can promises enough favours around) and you are lord and master over a huge budget, which means… donations flowing again.
Clinton only goes for almost sure wins. She become Senator in one of the safest seats around. She decided to run in 2008 when she was assured it was a done deal to clinch the nomination, and Obama was just a promising Mulatto boy. She decided to run again in 2012 after securing the Democratic nomination before the race even started, and after Biden and Bloomberg were persuaded or decided not to run. She started with all the unelected delegates, rigging the race from day one.
This is the woman now claiming she was unfairly defeated.
I pity Chelsea. No, wait, she does not deserve any, either.
