Moved By The Spirit

It did not take long after Trump refused to bad-mouth the KKK for being, you know, the KKK, that good ole Jeff Sessions comes a’knockin’ at his door.

Sessions’ endorsement is a major blow to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, whose success may hinge on winning those Tea Party and evangelical voters — and who has so often cited Sessions as an ally in his fight against the 2013 immigration reform effort.

The endorsement led Trump to say this means he’s “mainstream.”

Oh Yeah.

Jean-Marie Le Pen, the controversial father of France’s far-right National Front, on Saturday voiced his support for billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump’s insurgent bid for the White House. The de facto endorsement insinuates an unflattering — and unsought — connection between Trump and Le Pen, a known racist who was expelled last year from the National Front for his inflammatory rhetoric.

Not even in France, you twit.

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

    Hey, anybody watch the Oscars?

    (I’m sorry JJ. I just don’t want to read, hear, see, or talk about that… man. Hillary or Bernie, yes. Those others don’t exist.)

    JAKvirginia, the only ‘good’ Drumpf is a parody. Try this:

    Meanwhile, T-Rump certainly has a load of boat anchors posing as endorsements to drag into the general.

    Nope, PKM. No can do. There is NOTHING on the snacilbupeR side that interests me anymore. Zero. Zip. Nada. They aren’t funny. They’re pathetic. A total waste!

    (Aaargh! See? I’m starting to talk like the Don!!)

  4. I always get irritated when another country’s politicos stick their big fat noses into American elections at any level. I should say I’m not a French hater, or a British hater or etc etc hater. I just think the French and the British and the etc etc should STFU during election season. They aren’t gonna have to deal with the loser any way so why do they opine?

    That said I do sometimes wish there was more connection between Euro political parties and USofA parties. At least enough to civilize to snacilbupeR.

  5. Trump is mainstream in the current GOP, which is itself insane, racist, hate-filled, and paranoid about government. It’s the establishment Repubs who are now out of step, as is shown in the current primary.

    Trump supporters are exactly what the GOP has been cultivating for decades: low-information voters imbued with conspiracy theories who think serious problems have easy solutions. And Trump is their chosen solution.

  6. “I did not mean that Conservatives are generally stupid; I meant, that stupid persons are generally Conservative. I believe that to be so obvious and undeniable a fact that I hardly think any hon. Gentleman will question it.” — John Stuart Mill

    I don’t say that Republicans are generally racists, but racists are generally Republicans.

    Micr, if another country’s racist or fascist or dictator (looking at you, Putin) endorses Trump, that’s just another Keep Away sign for any American with half a brain. It adds up.


    Check out John Oliver’s skewering of Drumpf. If laughter is the best medicine, this will cure what ails ya’.

    Yeah, well, I’m a mainstream cook with quallifications for chopping grapes and boiling eggs without burning them too often. And I can eat snacks for just paying $25 to go shake hands with a real live candidate. Can I put that after my name?

  9. Marge Wood says:

    I just remembered. Guys who can’t afford to go to a conference can carry a camera and stick a note saying PRESS in their hats. So I guess if a guy can’t pay to go to events, all he has to do is to say I’M RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT and beg on the corner until he can afford a taxi. Or bus fare.

    My little bride sent me the link in email at lunchtime. I’ve been changing all my Trump hate to Drumpf hate since. BTW, I don’t disagree with the idea of changing one’s family name for a good reason a bad reason or no reason at all. BUT when one runs for leadership of the free world, one should accept that the proctoscope will employed. Often. And thoroughly. So in that vein… Will Drumpf be the nacilbupeR nominee???

    I have just returned from a visit to Mexico. If you have ever been to the beach in Mexico in the winter, you know that there are more Canadians there than Mexicans. And oh my, once I say where I’m from, the conversation is all about Trump. The world is in shock that America has sunk so far. (btw, I’m sure there are some conservatives in Canada, but they must not travel)

  12. @Micr: We do have to deal with their foreign policy, though.

  13. George Will, the Pompous One, has this to say about Sessions’ endorsee:

    “Donald Trump’s distinctive rhetorical style — think of a drunk with a bullhorn reading aloud James Joyce’s “Finnegans Wake” under water —”

    Nope, I am not at all a Will fan, but that is funny! It’s in Wapo.

  14. Soo now that I’m home I can watch the John Oliver vid that maryelle has linked us to. It is awesome.

    But dont stop there. if you use a Chrome based browser, Chrome or Opera and maybe others, download the browser extension that rewrites the html so that “Trump” displays “Drumpf”. I promise your day will be better for it.

    But we would have to deal with “their” policy regardless of who wins. We deal with that transition every time the POTUS changes and potentially every time the SecState changes. France, the UK, Russia, etc can deal with change.
