2016 Election, Trump

An Affair to Dismember (Trump)

If you’ve ever cheated on your spouse just to get back at your daughter for dating or marrying the wrong man, you’re probably a #nevertrump person like George Will.

Suppose your daughter married a man you didn’t approve of. You would probably respond by cheating on your own spouse, would you not? Having an affair would teach your daughter a lesson, right? And if your spouse and your friends and your other children suffered, too bad. Collateral damage is the cost of war.

Because Republican voters nominated a candidate the NeverTrumpers disapprove of, the NeverTrumpers say they’ll politically sleep with a woman who intentionally built an email server to hide her Clinton Foundation money laundering operation from law enforcement. For example, NeverTrumper and conservative blogger George Will plans to have an affair with Hillary Clinton, the woman who pressured Obama to turn Libya into an ISIS breeding ground. Hillary Clinton, who publicly blamed the Benghazi attack on a video even after her illegal emails revealed she knew damn well it was an act of terrorism. Then she called the families of Benghazi victims liars. Will will sleep with Hillary Clinton who promised to put “a lot of coal miners and a lot of coal companies out of business,” then told an out-of-work coal miner he didn’t hear what she said.

And George Will wants to sleep with this woman. Politically speaking, of course.

I realize George is an old man. He was old in 2009 when he warned that blue jeans would lead to the downfall of Western Civilization. Will wrote, “it is a straight line from the fall of the Bastille to the rise of denim.” In the same post, Mr. Will prescribed a model of male dress that, in his view, should guide every man from here to eternity: “If Fred Astaire would not have worn it, don’t wear it.” (The 90 percent of you who have no idea who Fred Astaire was can look him up on Wikipedia. I guess.) That “jeans is devil-wear” column was the moment level-headed people stopped taking Will seriously.

On Monday, lead nevertrumper Bill Kristol said he’ll “never say never” about voting for Trump after having said “never Trump” about two million times. Kristol’s wisdom to walk back his never Trump statements will shine through as Donald Trump goes to work on Hillary Clinton. Benghazi and the emails will, finally, became household scandals. People old enough to remember the 1990s will sober up and realize the horrific danger to America Hillary presents.

Those Republicans who insist on sleeping with Hillary? Wear a condom. You don’t want to get any on you.

I’m for America. I’m for Trump.

  1. 2ndchild,
    I don’t see any point in this sight anymore except that it’s where I heard
    from another sane patriot I would like to stay in touch with. BTW, I’m a
    Vietnam Era Vet myself. (Won’t make any claim on the honor owed them, but I did want them to know some of us were on their side. :-) ) My email is [email protected].
    God bless, Lady.


  2. I stepped into this discussion hoping that you, of all people, might be able to give me a sane reason or two to trust a man from whom I have only seen third-grade level threats, lying, name-calling, and bullying; dizzying flip-flops on any actual policy issues; and profane rabble-rousing and incitement to violence and chaos. Instead, you have only echoed the shallow tribalism and hostility to any who would dare ask for some sign of an operative program that seems to define the Trump base.
    But those of us who would have liked a civil discussion of really important existential issues so that we could make intelligent, logical choices on who had the best plan going forward to recover from the mess both Dems and self-serving, faithless Republicans have left us are just threatened and insulted; “shut up, sit down and submit!” This is not acceptable leadership and not a whit better than I would expect from the communists on the other side. Tyranny is tyranny, no matter the label assumed.

  3. I’m actually rooting for both Trump and Clinton to be in or their way to prison before either can do any harm :-) . But what has that argument gotten us over the past 24 years but an ever-more-corrupt and spineless GOP? And I’m not at all sure there’s a difference between them (Trump just hired a Soros compatriot) except that he’d be waving a GOP flag over the mess. Then what?

    1. Lynn, you have a Boolean choice: Clinton or Trump. Trump loves America. Trump puts America first. Hillary tolerates America. Hillary puts lots of things before America. You either love America or you don’t. It sounds to me like you don’t. Leave.

      1. We need to leave American because a liar imposter Trump has lied his way to the nomination. Man you have sold your soul to the devil. Wow just wow!

        1. Well, thanks for reading and commenting on Hennessy’s View before you go. Don’t forget, Hennessy’s View is available wherever you go. And you can sign up to receive email notifications of every new post.

  4. I will not join a fight against the wisdom of God revealed to the founders to support the self-serving whims of a madman. I will put my energies to preparing folks to sweep up the mess and rebuild when y’all are done trying to destroy the America I believe in.

    1. Lynn, I agree with you. I will no longer be faced with voting for the lessor of two evils – this mess of an election has made me really think about my values and stand for what I believe. Out of the original (what 17?) candidates – my top picks dropped out, one by one, with the GOP obviously trying to decide for me – I’m done. I stood toe to toe with members of my family asking them to explain various Trump “policy”, while trying not to offend and start a feud! So, Bill . . . when someone accuses ME of putting Clinton in office (because I refuse to vote Trump), I can say, “No – YOU did that when you voted in the primary.

      1. What a sad, passive, hopeless response to the world. You can’t even put your real name on that. You avoid responsibility for your passivity. As RUSH (the band) said, “If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.”

        So you’ve chosen to have an affair with the woman who killed 4 heroic Americans in Benghazi and compromised US security.

        You don’t have any children serving the country in uniform, do you? Pathetic. Weak.

        1. I’ve commented on your articles many times and most of the time, you have replied in agreement or a pleasant thank you of sorts – but, never a slam for not using my real name. Apparently my real name is only important if we happen to disagree. I’m not avoiding responsibility and I am not passive – as I WILL be voting in the election. I will just refuse to be a part of making a choice between two evils. There are many months between now and November – and I am waiting to see what happens (I believe that God IS in charge, so you just never know what this will look like by November.) And for the last of your points to somehow discredit my comment – No, I don’t have children serving in the military – Just a Marine husband that received that “all expense paid vacation” in Viet Nam. He NOT only got a tee shirt for attending – he got a couple Purple Hearts and a better understanding of politicians.

        2. I have no doubt your husband is a remarkable man. You probably understand that I don’t want my boys to earn Purple Hearts. Unless they have to.

          I’ll be crass here, but I think my wife would prefer I took a bullet than one of our kids. Just sayin’. I wasn’t talking about spouses. You know very well, don’t you, that kids are different from spouses. Don’t you?

          Do you want Hillary Clinton to fill Antonin Scalia’s seat on the Supreme Court? Just to prove how RIGHT you are?

          You’re not that selfish and narcissistic, are you?

          No. You want a Republican President to fill Scalia’s seat, don’t you?

          I realize you’re hurting. But, come on. Donald Trump loves America. Hillary Clinton doesn’t. Trump might not be a Constitutional scholar, but he’s not against it. Hillary Clinton hates the Constitution, and you know it.

          Did you vote for Mitt Romney? He’s to the left of Trump on almost everything. Did you vote for John McCain? You don’t believe Mitt or McCain thinks more like you than Trump thinks like you.

          Look, I don’t have two purple hearts, but I’ve been sacrificing for this country since I was a kid in high school. I see a clear choice: Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. I’m taking Trump. And I will hold to account every selfish Republican who helps Hillary Clinton. And will be ruthless in my prosecution of their error. Trust me.

  5. I agree on almost all of the problems Trump folk are reacting to; I cannot see how the worst perpetrator of New York City corruption is an answer. We’re being ignored by the current folks who are supposed to be representing us; you see hope in the guy who routinely bought their attention and favor to the harm of us voiceless ones? You would reject a very honorable (and very smart) man who is totally committed to restoring our Constitution and right relations between government and the people, and to the principles that built us into an indomitable force for good in the world, and instead embrace the one who has no values and no clue? His only “answers” are to shout down, bully, and threaten, even to death threats against those who would “dare” to represent those of us who disagree – and lie outrageously. No, I can’t buy into that “solution”. You think you want to “burn down” the GOP; I don’t blame you. I deeply fear the result is going to burn down ALL of America, and the Communists are drooling in the wings. Remember, he’s been with them a lot longer than “he’s been with us.”

    1. This is the Trump propaganda machine. Beating us down. Steve Deace At conservative review has a wonder podcast that spells out the lies of the Trump propaganda. Many of these bloggers and radio guys have regular contact with Trump Campaign. Do not listen to these fools.

      1. You’re probably right. I’m sure some bloggers talk to the Trump campaign frequently. I don’t, but I’m sure some do. Some bloggers contact other campaign staffers, too.

  6. My goodness, you are being pretty hard on George Will.

    If the federal government could get stuffed back into the Constitution, we wouldn’t all be suffering from this massively toxic overdose of presidential election news. POTUS wouldn’t matter so doggone much. Governor would be a lot more important; as it is, Missouri’s gubernatorial race is absolutely eclipsed, because the presidential race is sucking up all the oxygen.

    Doesn’t it make you weary? Don’t you just long for it to be over?

    1. Yeah. I’ve said for years people should be able to name their town council rep before their member of Congress for the simple reason that local government should have more effect on their lives than some distant government in Washington. But the opposite is true today. Few people know anything about their local government. Or state.
