Deplorable scum

Hillary Clinton made a big bet on “deplorables.” Three years later, already having won that hand, Donald Trump raised her bid. He tweets that Never Trumpers are “human scum.”

“The Never Trumper Republicans, though on respirators with not many left, are in certain ways worse and more dangerous for our Country than the Do Nothing Democrats. Watch out for them, they are human scum!”

This is obviously the Democrats’ fault. They keep empowering the President with their Star Chamber Impeachment coup, and encouraging him by continually upping the crazyiness ante. I mean, aren’t we all waiting with bated breath for Hillary Clinton to respond?

“Deplorable Russian scumbags” is still available.

If the Democrats had potential Presidential nominees (and Ms. Tentsuit is not one of them) who would condemn gun confiscation, eschew banning fracking, resist the pronoun war fallout, refuse massive tax hikes, ridicule the provision of free healthcare to illegal immigrants, oppose open borders, concede a woman’s right to choose logically ends with the birth of an autonomous being, abandon ruinously expensive fantasy proscriptions to prevent “climate change,” give up efforts to erase the Electoral College and pack the Supreme Court, and stop threatening to stamp out religious liberty – Trump might have had to moderate his language.

Even so, he probably wouldn’t have. He can’t help himself. Democrats apparently cannot grasp that, and, by now, they certainly should.

Full disclosure: I was NeverTrump during the GOP primaries. I voted Libertarian in the General. After Mr. Trump was elected, I accepted his Presidency. I have been pleased by some of his policies, appalled by others. That’s all on record here.

Nonetheless, according to The Donald, I’m now at least peripherally scum.

I can’t vote for anyone else this time. Wish I could. My enthusiasm ends with stopping the Democrat, whoever that turns out to be. If there were a GOP Presidential primary, I’d vote for Ted Cruz, though he’s too principled to run against a sitting President of his own party.

Mr. President, I know you can’t keep a civil tongue. I know it contributes to your success. But, gross insults of people who don’t matter to your re-election won’t convince any undecideds to vote for you.

And some people who gave up NeverTrumping might succumb to recidivism. That comment was just one of many bridges you went too far to burn.

Bimbo Erupts

Hillary Clinton’s above the law self-privileging is breathtaking, even for a Democrat. She suffers from the delusion that because her husband was a genial, accomplished liar that the skill rubbed off on her. She’s also sure she’s immune to the charge of misogyny (which she would attach to anyone else behaving as did her husband) because of her sex.

Mrs. Bill can’t acknowledge Mr. Bill’s deeds, because without Mr. Bill she would have had no political career whatsoever. Might explain her bitterness and that of her handmaids.

Her nth wave Feminist supporters suffer from a similar megalomaniacal pursuit of their own (as they would put it) “privilege.” This privilege demands the destruction of any male, or white female, who disagrees in the slightest detail with THE ONLY ACCEPTABLE identity-political views, while steadfastly protecting those who who violate Feminist core values when those political views are shared. Harvey Weinstein, about whose, uh… peccadillos the Senior Harpies all knew, may not be the worst example. But, he’s the one we’ve got.

To be clear, Hillary Clinton isn’t responsible for her husband’s long history of sexual predation. She is, however, responsible for denigrating the victims of each and every occurrence; simultaneously proclaiming Bill’s vices as virtues while insulting those who question her “narrative.” She just can’t bring herself to “put some ice” on her wounded sense of entitlement.

Bill Clinton’s Sexual Assault Allegations Are ‘Different’, Hillary Says
Read the whole thing.
Emphasis in original.

The numerous allegations of sexual harassment levied against him mean President Trump is a reprehensible monster, according to Hillary Clinton, but when it comes to similar claims made about her husband, former President Bill Clinton, it’s a different story

The difference-maker, according to Clinton, is the fact that the allegations facing her husband were thoroughly investigated by a federal prosecutor

“Well, there’s a very significant difference and that is the intense, long-lasting, partisan investigation that was conducted in the 90s,” Clinton said. “If the Republicans, starting with President Trump on down want a comparison, they should welcome such an investigation themselves.”

I dare say Justice Kavanaugh was more intensely, and with more partisan vitriol, investigated than Slick Willy, much more thoroughly investigated than her former boss, Barack Obama, and for a shorter time than the Mueller fiasco – which she initiated to cover up the DNC’s collusion with the FBI and foreign intelligence agencies.

IIRC, the claims against Trump all involve consensual activities, all of which occurred when he was neither Attorney General/ Governor of Arkansas, nor President of the United States. Since Kavanaugh was accused of far worse, my conclusion is that there’s nothing out there about Trump even as (un)believable as Julie Swetnik’s rape gang story.

Is there any doubt the #Resistance hysteria volume would ramp up to 11 if Trump was proved to have had oral sex with an intern in the Oval Office, and was disbarred for lying to a grand jury? There is, of course, no doubt the hysterics still defend Bill Clinton – of whom both are true. And that’s the real difference.

I’d like to see Bill’s yearbooks, one of which has a “dampstain” on page two. Hillary’s would be interesting only because those were her “Goldwater Girl” days. That should be disqualifying now, for any office, according to the Kavanaughts.

Exercises in authoritarianism

Donald Trump’s unfortunate, if entirely unsurprising recommendation, “Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything you want,” has attracted a by now standard defense from his supporters: “Bill and Hillary are worse.”

However, Trump’s comment must be generalized beyond simply promoting sexual assault: He thinks of women as property.

In that, he is equal to Bill and Mrs. Bill. The difference is that they comfortably understand their ownership extends to everyone, and they should avoid bragging about it. Because Trump is a slow to learn political novice, he hasn’t thought about that yet.

But he will.

Profiles in Mendacity

You know, if Hillary wasn’t such a well established liar, people would believe pneumonia. As it is, “political crisis” is an apt description.

It would be ironic if she’s telling the truth on this, but her history of coverups costs her the election.

She was diagnosed on Friday, but kept it secret. Bet she regrets that decision.

Starting to appear as if a vote for Hillary is a vote for Kaine

I have avoided comment on Hillary’s supposed health issues because the evidence is very thin she has anything seriously wrong. However, added to her general behavior and other recent reports, this is disturbing.

Mrs. Bill leaves the WTC ceremony early and in distress:

Really, Todd, you’re just figuring that out?
