In a column entitled Why progressives shouldn’t despair over trump, someone claiming to be Barton Swaim argues
- Progressives mainly object to Trump because of “appearance, attitude, style and language”—for example, he is “proudly, ostentatiously nouveau rich” and “embosses his comical surname on buildings.”
- Progressives ought to prefer Trump, “who might shift left or right depending on the circumstances and his mood” to a more consistent conservative who would (Aardvark’s words) know the difference between his ass and a hole in the ground.
No, you blithering idiot. Progressives’ concerns are not aesthetic. Progressive are worried because our country has conferred enormous power on an immoral man child.
Yo, numbnuts, just click on over the Politico and take a gander at What Worries Ben Rhodes About Trump:
What concerns me is the things that happen every week. I don’t think people realize how many decisions the president of the United States makes about military action. The Iranians harass some vessel of ours in the Persian Gulf: What do we do in response? There’s shelling around our diplomatic facility in X Middle Eastern country. The Chinese pass too close for comfort by a U.S. Navy ship in the South China Sea. These decisions come all the time, and they’re going to come from Day One. I would be more focused on that. Because a dust-up with the Iranians or the Chinese could get out of hand very fast.
