Donald Trump has screwed up his life and his so-called “presidency” so badly that even his favorite news outlets are ditching him.
This morning, the usually ultra-conservative Wall Street Journal ripped Trump a new one and Republicans everywhere are probably freaking out right about now, especially since the Journal broke the news of Trump’s $130,000 payoff to keep Stormy Daniels quiet about their affair in 2006. This payoff conveniently happened right before Trump’s campaign for president in 2016, but I digress…
In a piece titled “The Tale Of Stormy Donald,” the conservative editorial staff laid it all out for Trump’s base:
“Every sentient voter in 2016 understood that Donald Trump had a bad history with women. He survived politically because his opponent had spent 20 years denying or apologizing for even worse behavior by her husband. But mistakes of character tend to catch up with everyone, and that’s what is now happening with President Trump and his many women.”
The Journal went on to say:
“It’s impossible to predict how all of this will play out politically. Many Trump partisans will refuse to believe it or claim it’s irrelevant, but our guess is that at the margin this contributes to a growing public belief that Mr. Trump’s personal flaws are undermining his chances for a successful Presidency.”
“His recent selections of John Bolton and Mike Pompeo for his security team are first rate, but Mr. Trump’s reality-TV dismissal of their predecessors was nasty and chaotic. On Friday he threatened to veto a budget bill his own staff had been negotiating for weeks—further souring voters on the GOP Congress. Doesn’t he realize that if Democrats win the House, they will vote to impeach him?”
The fact that a conservative outlet is pointing out the obvious to Trump and his delusional administration (and equally delusional supporters) is pretty alarming. Trump’s legal staff is defecting by the minute it seems, and with his administration in chaos, this will not end well.
The editors at the Journal ended their piece with this:
“The Stormy Daniels case is typical of Mr. Trump’s pre-presidential behavior in thinking he can, with enough threats and dissembling, get away with anything. He’s never understood that a President can’t behave that way, and this may be the cause of his downfall.”
If Trump and his circus clowns can’t see what’s happening, even after Sunday’s 60 Minutes interview with Stormy Daniels, then all we can do is laugh and head to the polls this November. It’s imperative for the future of this country.
