She fooled us. So have many others over the years. Conservatives keep falling in love and keep being played.
Consider this story from the Associated Press, “Arnold Schwarzenegger calls President Donald Trump ‘worst president ever’.”
Remember when he was governor of California?
We loved it when he called Democrats girly men. We thought we had our champion. Too bad he was born in Austria and cannot run for president, we thought at the time.
But once again, the Constitution protected us.
Paul Ryan was another matinee idol of the right. We loved it when Mittens picked him as a running mate. He was a fiscal conservative.
4 years later, he dumped on Donald Trump. As House Speaker, he may as well have been Nancy Pelosi for all he cooperated with a real conservative president.
By the way, Ryan came to Washington as a pauper. His net worth is now $8 million.
I won’t go into the Jonahs and Kristols in the media who posed as conservatives on TV. We now realize that Liberal Fascism was a tribute, not a criticism.
They fooled us and fleeced us and laugh in our faces. In Kevin D. Williamson’s gawdawful, “The Father Fuhrer” piece, National Review called us Nazis for crying out loud.
Oh how we swooned when General Mattis joined the Trump administration.
Last June, The Atlantic reported, “James Mattis Denounces President Trump, Describes Him as a Threat to the Constitution.”
Colin Powell was another general gone bad, but by the time President Trump arrived, we already knew his conservatism was a gimmick. He supported Obama. Twice.
Jeff Sessions may still be a conservative. Who knows? We do know that his passive-aggressive management of DOJ saddled President Trump with a witch hunt
His replacement, Bill Barr, drank water well. And he made sure no one would pay a price for Spygate.
