Up until this point, very few GOP candidates have been willing to attack Trump, knowing that it has a big risk of coming back to hurt them in the polls, and it’s done just that to the few who’ve had the guts to go after him.
In large part no attack hurts him, including being called out for not being a conservative, because his supporters believe “he’s one of us”, and “he speaks for us”.
This includes many evangelicals, which is sad because Trump represents everything Christians are supposed to be against.
But what if there was evidence that he isn’t one of us, and in fact is about as different from us as a republican candidate can get without joining the democrat party?
Moreover, what if there was evidence that his own national campaign spokesperson isn’t “one of us”, stands for everything we’re against, and has attacked Christians in the recent past?
I believe such evidence, if used effectively in a wave of attack ads by Cruz in Iowa, could finally bring Trump down in the polls.
Well, such evidence exists. Indeed, it’s abundant.
First, what can I point to to back up my claim that Trump isn’t one of us?
To begin with, he cheated on his first wife. But before that, he was a self-admitted playboy. That’d be fine if he ever admitted what he did was wrong, but he’s never done so, and in fact has said he’s never asked God for forgiveness because he “doesn’t do anything wrong” and lives a good life.
So by that logic, having sex with lots of women, none of whom you’re married to, and none of whom you have any intention of having a long term relationship with, isn’t wrong. He described it this way:
“I was especially carefree [in the early-mid 1970s]. I had a comfortable little studio apartment in Third Avenue in the city, and I maintained a lifestyle that was fairly commonplace then but that now, in an age when people are worried about dying from sex, is hard to even imagine. I didn’t drink or take drugs; as far as stimulants go, I’ve yet to have my first cup of coffee. But I was out four or five nights a week, usually with a different woman each time, and I was enjoying myself immensely.”
Are Jerry Falwell Jr, Sarah Palin, and all the other so called evangelicals who support Trump ok with this? Does the average evangelical voter know about all the things he’s done in his past and his promiscuous lifestyle?
Cruz should run an ad asking evangelicals in Iowa if they’re ok with Trump’s stance on marriage and prenups:
On prenuptial agreements:
“The most difficult aspect of the prenuptial agreement is informing your future wife (or husband): I love you very much, but just in case things don’t work out, this is what you will get in the divorce. There are basically three types of women and reactions. One is the good woman who very much loves her future husband, solely for himself, but refuses to sign the agreement on principle. I fully understand this, but the man should take a pass anyway and find someone else. The other is the calculating woman who refuses to sign the prenuptial agreement because she is expecting to take advantage of the poor, unsuspecting sucker she’s got in her grasp. There is also the woman who will openly and quickly sign a prenuptial agreement in order to make a quick hit and take the money given to her.” (“Trump: The Art of the Comeback”)
“You have to treat ’em like shit,” Trump told friend Philip Johnson, according to New York.
“You’d make a good mafioso,” Johnson replied.
“One of the greatest,” The Donald assured him.
“You know, it really doesn’t matter what they write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.” ( Esquire, 1991)
“When a man leaves a woman, especially when it was perceived that he has left for a piece of ass—a good one!— there are 50 percent of the population who will love the woman who was left.” ( Vanity Fair, September 1990)
“Oftentimes when I was sleeping with one of the top women in the world I would say to myself, thinking about me as a boy from Queens, ‘Can you believe what I am getting?’”
This is just a small sample of the insulting and derogatory things Trump has said about women. Now if someone still wants to vote for him after reading all this, that’s your right, but don’t fool yourself into believing he’s actually a good person who would defend Christians or Christian principles and teachings. Trump is a lot of things, but a man of God isn’t one of them.
Trump often says he’s a man of the people and that the blue collar workers of America love him. But if that’s the case, why did he try to use eminent domain to take the property of an elderly widow, just so he could use the space as a parking lot for his limos? If he’s abused that much power just as a businessman, imagine how much he’d trample the rights of individual citizens as President. Something to think about.
Katrina Pierson is Trump’s national campaign spokeswoman. It’s time GOP primary voters in Iowa and across the country got to know her, cause the fact that Trump chose her to be the face of his entire campaign speaks volumes about who he is and whether or not he’s fighting for Christians.
It’d be bad enough if Katrina simply didn’t care about the issues conservatives care about, but it’s much worse than that. She’s been actively and publicly involved in attacking Christians for practicing their faith, and has accused Republicans of being racist.
Now she has the nerve to turn around and claim Trump is the real conservative in this race and is a convert like Reagan was, and that Cruz isn’t sufficiently conservative on issues like immigration and trade.
She’s the perfect con woman to compliment Trump, the ultimate con man.
Try this thought experiment for me: Go to a Trump rally or event and ask any Trump supporter the following question: “I have a quote here and I’m asking people if they know who said it, so can you tell me who made the following statement?
“MLK was too moderate for me. lol Malcolm X is my freedomfighter hero! Work, educate, and empower!!!”
Now obviously they’ll have no idea who said that, so then say, “it sounds like someone working in the Obama admin, or one of Obama’s radical liberal friends, right? They’ll agree, no doubt.
Then say, ok, before I tell you who it is, lemme give you another quote. Do you have any idea who said the following:
“There are no such things as Christians. Just people who call themselves Christians.”
How about this?
“It’s hard to argue that the GOP isn’t racist with Rick Santorum up front”, and “the GOP is racist”.
Give up? It’s probably that same wacky liberal friend of Obama’s, right?
But what if I told you it’s from someone who isn’t a liberal? What if I told you it’s the woman who Trump hired to be his national campaign spokeswoman, and that she has many more statements attacking Christians? Would you still vote for him?
. . . . Hopefully the Trump supporter is staring at you in disbelief at this point . . . .
Then give them all the info I’m sharing in this diary and tell them to spread the word, because in fact it was Katrina Pierson who said all those things.
Furthermore, Katrina hasn’t exactly lived a Christian life to say the least. At age 20 she was arrested for shoplifting at a JC Penny’s. Then she had a child out of wedlock. She was also on unemployment benefits while working as a political activist.
The cherry on top is that she voted for Obama in 2008.
Beyond all this, the ironic thing is that she actually worked for Cruz’s 2012 senate campaign. But now that she’s working for Trump, she’s bashing Cruz on a daily basis. That shows that not only does she have no loyalty, but she has no principles. You can’t say you think a candidate is great as a senator at one point and then 4 years later when he’s running for president say he’s a liar and can’t be trusted.
Either Trump knew all this and still hired her, or he didn’t know any of it, I don’t know which is worse. Either he’s willing to hire superficial hypocrites to be part of the highest levels of his campaign, or he doesn’t vet anyone for these positions.
This is just a taste of the kind of people he would put in positions of power as president. Is that what you want leading the country? If your answer is no, it’s time to start supporting a true conservative like senator Cruz.
