Seeing the writing on the wall, Trump’s adoring media gimps… er… surrogates went into spastic fits of angst on Thursday morning.
Laura Ingraham, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, and everybody’s favorite sensei, Sean Hannity, discussed the final presidential debate, and took outrageous aim at the Never Trump holdouts.
“They’re standing with the woman who stood up there today and said, ‘I’m hundred percent for Roe v. Wade and partial birth abortion,” Ingraham said in reference to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton‘s performance Wednesday evening at the third and final presidential debate.
“That’s what ‘Never Trump’ stands for, I guess,” she said during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “Roe v. Wade and partial birth abortion. Fantastic.”
Ridiculous and insulting.
There are myriad reasons that those of us who have rejected Trump’s candidacy from the beginning have continued to do so. None of them have to do with supporting Hillary Clinton, whatsoever.
People like Ingraham, Hannity, and the other Trump devotees are trying to scare, bully, or shame principled voters into accepting their candidate. It doesn’t work that way. Nobody is owed our vote. It has to be earned. Trump has shown himself unprofessional, unqualified, and wholly unworthy of our sacred trust.
Hillary is no better. We’re not voting for her, either.
“Hillary Clinton vividly defended the idea of late-term, partial birth abortion, calling it women’s health,” Huckabee said. “Donald Trumpboldly took a stand for life tonight. And for all these ‘Never Trumpers’ out there, they need to get off their keister, if you will, just stand up and recognize —”
Hannity interjected, “Get off their ass! Just say it. Tell them to get off their ass and stop being a bunch of crybabies.”
“I’m so tired of all those people. They don’t deserve any more discussion until the day after election. Then I got a lot to say about [House Speaker] Paul Ryan and the rest of them,” Hannity said.
And nobody cares about what you say, Sean. You’re as much of a whiny, petulant child as your idol. I’d tell you to have some dignity, but that ship has sailed.
The facts are, Trump wouldn’t take a firm stand on abortion. He was pressed on overturning Roe v. Wade, and while saying he’d appoint pro-life judges, he simply said he’d like to see it go to the states.
The notion that anyone must prove their conservative credentials through their vote for Donald Trump is both ridiculous and false. It’s a narrative being pushed by people who basically told us they didn’t need us to win, but who now see that their words were in haste, and maybe they do need us, after all.
Too late to turn back now. If you really cared about conservatism or saving this nation, you shouldn’t have pushed an unwinnable candidate on us.
You own this.
