Grow up!

It’s no secret that I wasn’t celebrating when Donald Trump won the GOP nomination for President, and it’s definitely no secret I didn’t vote for him.

It wasn’t because of his alleged misogyny, racism, xenophobia, or any other shit grenade the left has thrown at him. For the record, I don’t think he’s any of those things. I think he’s injudicious in his use of language, and has very little understanding of the nuanced issues involved in our national security, economic, and foreign policy.

But all that is not the point.

Donald J. Trump won the 2016 election. He gained the electoral votes necessary to become the next President of the United States, and now it’s up to him to live up to that honor.

For the record, I hope he succeeds.

Why? Because I’m an adult.

Because for the good of the country I love, I hope he does better – MUCH better – than I think he will. I hope he gains an understanding of diplomacy, the Constitution, national defense, and our military. I hope he is judicious in his use of military force, and I hope he begins to trust the dedicated, passionate intelligence professionals who work for him.

Because I’m an adult, if he does a good job during his first term, I will absolutely admit I was wrong about him and will vote for him if he runs again. My vote has to be earned. I hope he does so.

Because I’m an adult, and I love my country.

Yesterday, I excoriated the hysterical left for their frothing, lunatic hatred for the President-elect and their refusal to accept that he won the election fairly, their attempts to install Shrillary in the White House at any cost, and the mental gymnastics and contortions in which they engaged to invalidate and smear him.

turdToday, I’m going to focus my ire on the Trumpanzees – not the normal Trump supporters, or those who voted for him merely to keep the C-Hag out of the White House – but the smirking, shit-flinging chimps who think Trump can do no wrong, claim that any criticism of their deity means you’re a Hillary supporter, and insist on doing their smarmy little happy dance by rubbing their “victory” in the faces of the #nevertrumpers (those who chose not to vote for Trump), chortling about us eating crow or gnashing our teeth in bitter angst.

These are the same puerile shit swaddlers who called those of us who are ostensibly ideological allies “idiots” and “tacit Hillary supporters,” due to our refusal to worship at the altar of Trump. Any criticism or refusal to cast a vote in his direction was met with derision and the math-challenged claim that a vote for anyone other than Trump meant a vote for Hillary.

These cock burglars point their gigantic, unwarranted schadenboners in our direction, as they project their own lack of maturity on conservatives who made the very rational choice to not vote for the President-elect in the general election.

“I can hear nevertrumpers grinding their teeth as they scarf down bite after bitter bite of crow, and that’s almost as delicious.”

“Crow. Eat it. Think about how this happened. Maybe, just maybe, even learn a lesson. (As if.)”

“The #NeverTrump crowd is still a nuisance, and still wrong.”

“Frankly, these #NeverTrump people are essentially NeverAmerica.”

“Some Republicans are STILL #NeverTrump purity testers. What a lonely pathetic existence.”

“All I can say to the remaining #NeverTrump’ers is, we’ll send you a postcard from the winner’s circle, losers.”

For the record, every single conservative or libertarian-leaning Republican I know who refused to vote for Trump (I’m sure there are a few unhinged loons out there, but I don’t hang out with them) is either in “wait and see” mode, or is actively hoping for a successful four years.

For the record, every single conservative or libertarian-leaning Republican I know who remained part of the #nevertrump movement, has accepted that he won fairly and hopes for the best. No one is pitching tantrums, or clutching their pearls.

rawThe only people sensing teeth gnashing and crow consumption from conservatives and libertarian-leaning Republicans are the Trumpanzees, who are obviously projecting their own lack of maturity onto others. They want so badly to rub their victory into the faces of everyone who has ever opposed their Orange Savior, that they’re alienating those with whom they for the most part agree.

They’re like that nerdy kid, who has decided to get even with those he believes wronged him in high school. So there he is – at the high school reunion, dropping trou and doing the helicopter dick dance to show those snotty chicks from high school who wouldn’t give him the time of day what a monster schlong he has, but in reality, he’s just bared his insignificant giblets in a room full of adults who have let go of their bitter high school slights and just want to catch up, dance, and have a few drinks.

Here’s a bit of advice for the Trumpanzees: grow up and get over yourselves. Realize that he is not perfect and will make mistakes, for which you have to be objective and courageous enough to criticize him.

Understand that you can acknowledge that he won the election fair and square AND recognize that the Russians tried to meddle in our elections.

Understand that it is possible to not have voted for the man, AND to hope that he is a successful president, instead of spitefully hoping for failure – a failure we, as a world leader cannot afford.

And ferfuckssake, stop blindly swinging what passes for dicks in your world, and be as vigilant as you were the past eight years with a Democrat in office, by holding your government officials accountable, no matter what political party happens to inhabit the White House!

  1. I said, when once upon a time when Trump announced his candidacy, there was no way I’d vote for him. I voted for him, unlike Nikki, but I was holding my nose. The reaction of the Dims before and after Trump won convinced me a) to vote for Trump and b) I’d made the right choice. Like Nikki, I am of little faith, but I’ve been granted a reprieve…Trump is nominating good people for his cabinet. Not GOPers, but people who have the potential to upset a lot of progressive apple carts. If the bureaucracy lets them, once they get confirmed. So, I wait with baited breath to see if I made a good choice or a bad one. And sure enough, I’m going to scream about the bad policy choices Trump makes.

  2. So you were at my 10th reunion?

    I actually can’t follow one paragraph. Does it have a “not” you don’t want in there? Not a single #nevertrump Republican you know and hang out with is in a wait and see mode or wants him to succeed. Don’t you mean all the ones you know are either waiting and seeing or want him to succeed?

    Maybe I just can’t parse it because the blood my brain needs has run down to my massive schlong…

    Hey, I’m free for lunch today near your office…


    1. Oooh! When? I have a meeting at noon, but can do a 1pm.

      Let me check on the sentence structure. I may have been tired when I wrote it last night.


    2. Yep, you were right. I douched it up. Fixed. I think it was because I moved a sentence initially. Anyway – let me know about lunch.


  3. Enjoyed the read. As a card-carrying libertarian I am stunned at how telescreens get both halves of the Kleptocracy worked into a frenzy over sameness. Mystical bigots can now feel betrayed when women aren’t immediately forced to squeeze out unwanted pups. Communist sympathizers will seethe over the people’s access to weapons being eroded too slowly. But both halves will continue to thrill at continued prohibition killings, asset forfeiture crashes and distant religious warfare maiming our youngsters. “Both” parties worship the initiation of force, yet will gasp in feigned horror when foreigners follow their lead. It’s like a Groundhog Day time loop in Hitler/Stalin Europe, just slightly watered down. The Dems could have handed Gary an electoral vote, but made their choice, so, schadenfreude it is!


  4. Call it an over the top pushback against all that has been said and done to The Donald. Yes I have many problems with Trump but what the David Gergens and (the especially despicable) Rick Wilsons have said (and are saying) can cause an out-of-proportion response that comes off as almost hero worship. I’ll give them a pass for a little while. Much better targets are available. BTW, besides destroying the Bush and Clinton families, Trump has exposed the consulting class for what they are: overrated and overpaid. Good for him on both counts.

    1. David Gergens and (the especially despicable) Rick Wilsons have said (and are saying) can cause an out-of-proportion response that comes off as almost hero worship.

      Is it wrong that I have no idea who they are? Too lazy to Google. LOL

      That said, the BLIND hero worship is what bothers me. The refusal to see faults is what bothers me. And the ridiculous, puerile attacks on ideological allies bother me. Because in the end, they will be screaming into an echo chamber of their own fuckery.


      1. Gergen is a political commentator who fancies himself a moderate. He’s not, he’s left wing and loves to spend a lot of his time criticizing conservatives a la David Brooks. Therefore the networks give him ample time to bloviate on their political shows. He confidently predicted a landslide victory for Monica’s boyfriend’s wife. I was thrilled with his acumen.
        Rick Wilson is (maybe was) a GOP political consultant. He’s one of those geniuses who engineered McCain’s and Romney’s resounding wins over the humble community organizer. He was so angry at Ann Coulter for refuting his anti-Trump rants (on, you guessed it – the MSM) that him he tweeted and asked her if she charged Trump “extra for anal”. I think he’s just ticked off that Trump has opened a lot of people’s eyes as to just how necessary his ilk are to run a successful campaign. A lucrative job down the hopper.
        I agree that to not recognize Trump’s many shortcomings is just dumb. I still think a lot of it is just misplaced pushback and/or just a chance to needle the Trigglypuffs (sp).


  5. Sorry! I went to a meeting and got out in time to quit working for Xmas and go see “Passengers” so I could renew it on my blog tonight.

    But can do lunch Monday or maybe Friday, if you aren’t abroad then.


    1. Friday may be doable. I’ll let you know. Check your FB. I wound up in a meeting as well


  6. […] at first it was kind of amusing. Snowflakes nationwide were losing their collective shit over the election of someone they did not support, because they were so enamored with the idea […]
