The New Yorker on Trump

This is from The New Yorker--a very liberal magazine!!! 

This is absolutely brilliant. A surprising article from the New Yorker Magazine. This magazine has always been a left wing apologizer so this article is even more amazing. Don’t pass it up.

No matter who your favorite candidate might be … the article is an interesting read.

The author is the political correspondent for Bloomberg and wrote extensively about Obama even before he was nominated.

" Who is Donald Trump?" The better question may be, "What is Donald Trump?"

The answer? A giant middle finger from average Americans to the political and media establishment.

Some Trump supporters are like the 60s white girls who dated black guys just to annoy their parents. But most Trump supporters have simply had it with the Demo-socialists and the "Republicans In Name Only." They know there isn't a dime's worth of difference between Hillary Rodham and Jeb Bush, and only a few cents worth between Rodham and the other GOP candidates.

Ben Carson is not an "establishment" candidate, but the Clinton machine would pulverize Carson ; and the somewhat rebellious Ted Cruz will (justifiably so) be tied up with natural born citizen lawsuits (as might Marco Rubio). The Trump supporters figure they may as well have some fun tossing Molotov cocktails at Wall Street and Georgetown while they watch the nation collapse. Besides - lightning might strike, Trump might get elected, and he might actually fix a few things. Stranger things have happened (the nation elected an [islamo-]Marxist in 2008, and Bruce Jenner now wears designer dresses.)

Millions of conservatives are justifiably furious. They gave the Republicans control of the House in 2010 and control of the Senate in 2014, and have seen them govern no differently than Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Yet those same voters are supposed to trust the GOP in 2016? Why?

Trump did not come from out of nowhere. His candidacy was created by the last six years of Republican failures.

No reasonable person can believe that any of the establishment candidates [dems or reps] will slash federal spending, rein in the Federal Reserve, cut burdensome business regulations, reform the tax code, or eliminate useless federal departments (the Departments of Education, Housing and Urban Development, Energy, etc.). Even Ronald Reagan was unable to eliminate the Department of Education. (Of course, getting shot at tends to make a person less of a risk-taker.) No reasonable person can believe that any of the nation's major problems will be solved by Rodham, Bush, and the other dishers of donkey fazoo now eagerly eating corn in Iowa and pancakes in New Hampshire .

Many Americans, and especially Trump supporters, have had it with:
· Anyone named Bush
· Anyone named Clinton
· Anyone who's held political office
· Political correctness
· Illegal immigration
· Massive unemployment
· Phony "official" unemployment and inflation figures
· Welfare waste and fraud
· People faking disabilities to go on the dole
· VA waiting lists
· TSA airport groping
· ObamaCare
· The Federal Reserve's money-printing schemes
· Wall Street crooks like Jon Corzine
· Michelle Obama's vacations
· Michelle Obama's food police
· Barack Obama's golf
· Barack Obama's arrogant and condescending lectures
· Barack Obama's criticism/hatred of America
· Valerie Jarrett
· " Holiday trees"
· Hollywood hypocrites
· Global warming nonsense
· Cop killers
· Gun confiscation threats
· Stagnant wages
· Boys in girls' bathrooms
· Whiny, spoiled college students who can't even place the Civil War in the correct century... and that's just the short list.

Trump supporters believe that no Democrat wants to address these issues, and that few Republicans have the courage to address these issues. They certainly know that none of the establishment candidates are better than barely listening to them, and Trump is their way of saying, "Screw you, Hillary Rodham Rove Bush!" The more the talking head political pundits insult the Trump supporters, the more supporters he gains. (The only pundits who seem to understand what is going on are Democrats Doug Schoen and Pat Caddell and Republican John LeBoutillier. All the others argue that the voters will eventually "come to their senses" and support an establishment candidate .)

But America does not need a tune-up at the same old garage. It needs a new engine installed by experts - and neither Rodham nor Bush are mechanics with the skills or experience to install it. Hillary Rodham is not a mechanic; she merely manages a garage her philandering husband abandoned. Jeb Bush is not a mechanic; he merely inherited a garage. Granted, Trump is also not a mechanic, but he knows where to find the best ones to work in his garage. He won't hire his brother-in-law or someone to whom he owes a favor; he will hire someone who lives and breathes cars.

"How dare they revolt!" the "elites" are bellowing. Well, the citizens are daring to revolt, and the RINOs had better get used to it. "But Trump will hand the election to Clinton !" That is what the Karl Rove-types want people to believe, just as the leftist media eagerly shoved "Maverick" McCain down GOP throats in 2008 - knowing he would lose to Obama. But even if Trump loses and Rodham wins, she would not be dramatically different than Bush or most of his fellow candidates. They would be nothing more than caretakers, not working to restore America 's greatness but merely presiding over the collapse of a massively in-debt nation. A nation can perhaps survive open borders; a nation can perhaps survive a generous welfare system. But no nation can survive both - and there is little evidence that the establishment candidates of either party understand that. The United States cannot forever continue on the path it is on. At some point it will be destroyed by its debt.

Yes, Trump speaks like a bull wander[ing] through a china shop, but the truth is that the borders do need to be sealed; we cannot afford to feed, house, and clothe 200,000 Syrian immigrants for decades (even if we get inordinately lucky and none of them are ISIS infiltrators or Syed Farook wannabes); the world is at war with radical Islamists; all the world's glaciers are not melting; and Rosie O'Donnell is a fat pig.

Is Trump the perfect candidate? Of course not. Neither was Ronald Reagan. But unless we close our borders and restrict immigration, all the other issues are irrelevant. One terrorist blowing up a bridge or a tunnel could kill thousands. One jihadist poisoning a city's water supply could kill tens of thousands. One electromagnetic pulse attack from a single Iranian nuclear device could kill tens of millions. Faced with those possibilities, most Americans probably don't care that Trump relied on eminent domain to grab up a final quarter acre of property for a hotel, or that he boils the blood of the Muslim Brotherhood thugs running the Council on American-Islamic Relations. While Attorney General Loretta Lynch's greatest fear is someone giving a Muslim a dirty look, most Americans are more worried about being gunned down at a shopping mall by a crazed [Islamic] lunatic who treats his prayer mat better than his three wives and who thinks 72 virgins are waiting for him in paradise.

The establishment is frightened to death that Trump will win, but not because they believe he will harm the nation. They are afraid he will upset their taxpayer-subsidized apple carts. While Obama threatens to veto legislation that spends too little, they worry that Trump will veto legislation that spends too much.

You can be certain that if an establishment candidate wins in November 2016 … [their] cabinet positions will be filled with the same people we've seen before. The washed-up has-beens of the Clinton and Bush administrations will be back in charge. The hacks from Goldman Sachs will continue to call the shots. Whether it is Bush's Karl Rove or Clinton 's John Podesta, who makes the decisions in the White House will matter little.

If the establishment wins, America loses.

Lol. Anyone who think this dribble would be published in The New Yorker clearly has never read The New Yorker.

Snort! Why are Chuck & Davie Koch hiding behind the New Yorker?? Are they embarrassed by this fact-free drivel?

" the nation elected an [islamo-]Marxist in 2008, and Bruce Jenner now wears designer dresses."

Would that Obama had some grounding in Marxian economics (not be an outright Marxist, however), but he does NOT, nor is Obama anything close to being a Marxist no matter how much rightwing think tanks say otherwise. Nor is Obama a Muslim, although I wouldn't care if he was. But he's not, no matter how much rightwing think tanks keep lying about this.

I simply do not understand how or why Caitlyn Jenner can continue to be a Republican when she is constantly lied about and abused by them and their surrogates.

And finally: it is factually correct that "the nation" elected Obama, not once but twice, to be the US President. In our system of government, the majority rules. Grow up and deal with it.

Perhaps it would then be a good idea to stop electing Republicans. They're the ones who keep trying to lower the debt by reducing taxes.

Tell your boss you want a pay cut sometime and see if it helps you pay off your debts.

Is Trump the perfect candidate? Of course not. Neither was Ronald Reagan.

No shit. We are, after all, talking about a guy who once signed a bill into law by signing his name as "Reagan Ronald."

Why Donald Trump makes sense in the prism of right-wing talk radio.

We've seen stuff like this before, but it defies logic. First RWD says everything about liberals is totally wrong bad terrible & to be mocked constantly. Ok. Well if this screed was allegedly published in a liberal rag, then doesn't that mean it is completely wrong, stupid, worthless & to be mocked & ignored?

Logic just doesn't work in wingnutland. Duh.

I could believe that The New Yorker would publish something about the Rust Belt and the alt-right and their support for Trump out of desperation.
I immediately dropped my (already very) limited suspension of disbelief when it said 'Demo-socialists'. Hell, although most outlets confused Sanders for a socialist (when he's actually a social democrat), none of them would mistake neoliberal Clinton for one. In fact, that was one of the main problems Sanders supporters had with Clinton.
Also, I haven't seen many Trump supporters characterise Carson as anti-establishment. Most of the Trump supporters I've seen (both mainstream and alt-right) think of him as the sleepy black guy. No Trump supporter I've seen has characterised Cruz or Rubio as even 'somewhat rebellious'; to them, Cruz and Rubio are the very definition of establishment.
I love how the supposedly 'very liberal!!' author says 'islamo-Marxist [sic]' (as if Islamism and Marxism were somehow compatible ideologies) and talks about Jenner wearing dresses. Why not? Trump has stated he has no problem with transsexual or transgender women, and we've always been around in some way or another.
