Well, we are not sure if that is correct grammar but it makes our point. Jonah Goldberg is still conflating the hard core supporters of The Donald with the large number of us that made the binary choice. Jonah says in his newsletter:
The best example of this is how I hear everyday that whatever Trump may be doing wrong, it’s still “better than Hillary.” Of course, that’s got a lot of truth to it when it comes to things such as judicial appointments and the fact that we don’t have to put up with the Clintons’ “there’s no eating in the library” officiousness. But now that Trump is president, it’s utterly irrelevant, save to those who need to reassure themselves daily. [Emphasis added]
For those of us who chose The Donald because he is not Herself it is completely relevant. We get real judges. We get presidential actions that sometimes improve the economy or the country. We get a reduction in illegal immigration. We get terrible ideas on trade. The Donald is far from perfect but he is better than the alternative. The Donald shares much with the immediate past president (IPP) including incompetence in office. He is, however, an upgrade on the IPP. We are with Jonah on the basic point that The Donald, like the IPP, is a better campaigner than president. It is not surprising that they both fall back on those skills. What Jonah needs to accept (and move on) is that many/most of us recognized it when we voted for him. We need to make The Donald the best president he can be. We support him when appropriate and take him to task often. We recognize that he is not going to be great but we expect him to continue to be an upgrade on both Herself and the IPP. The was the choice we foresaw for November and it is why we chose The Donald in the general.
