We love Kevin Williamson, Jonah Goldberg is often entertaining, and David French writes but the NRO Never Trump Brigade needs to find a new song. Today it is Kevin’s turn to salt the soil:
Some of the smarter right-wing talking mouths on cable news have already developed aggressive amnesia regarding their own complicity in Trump’s rise, and it is likely that many will follow. The line of argument will be: “Hey, I was a big Ted Cruz supporter, really, but, after the primary, it was Trump or Hillary.” Some people will need reminding of what they said and did.
To be fair to Kevin, he is against impeaching The Donald. To be fair to us, we were for anyone but The Donald in the primary. Like many, we were not a big Ted Cruz supporter but we voted for him in the primary because he was better than The Donald. In the general election our first choice was Mitt’s second term but that wasn’t on the ballot. The choice, and it was a binary one, was between The Donald and Herself. We, and the country, made the right choice and voted for The Donald.
NRO deserves some credit for The Donald’s rise. They were steadfastly against The Donald but tried to beat somebody (The Donald) with nobody for most of the primary season. They, like many others, underestimated The Donald until it was too late and then nothing worked.
Many of The Donald’s supporters main concern was illegal immigration. There has not been a legislative solution but there has been a change:
Illegal immigration across the southwest border is down more than 60 percent so far under President Trump, officials revealed Tuesday, even before the first new agent is hired or the first mile of his promised border wall is constructed.
Those supporters have gotten what they wanted.
It was a binary choice in November. There were many folks that reluctantly supported The Donald. It was the right choice. If the Never Trump Brigade didn’t support The Donald in November then they were wrong. They don’t need to admit it but the Never Trump Brigade needs to stop emulating The Donald. Write less silly stuff. Instead let us talk of serious things.
