"Et tu, Brute?"
I’m a fan of Jonah Goldberg and Ann Coulter. They’re both intelligent, witty, honest and provide excellent insight. However, their recent articles backstab President Trump in a way that would make Julius Caesar’s ex-”friend,” Marcus Junius Brutus, proud.
President Trump has taken on the Russians, the EU, North Korea, China, the Democrats, his party RINOs, a special counsel and a corrupt main stream media and he is WINNING! Despite this, Jonah Golberg has the audacity to call him weak and Ann Coulter has the “Ann Coulter” to call him an idiot.
It’s time to open a can of “Wh**p*ss” on these two, so here goes:
What were you thinking?!
Are you nuts?!
Who’s side are you on?!
Did your mama raise a moron?!
Is your head up your ***?!
Have you lost your mind?!
Do you know what the “*&%” you’re doing?!
What the hell’s gotten into you?!
Do you live in a barn?!
Well, maybe that last one doesn’t apply, however, the point is made.
Let’s be clear. No freedom-loving, Constitutionally-minded, right-thinking individual is asking anyone, especially an honest pundit, to obediently goosestep to every Presidential tweet. But hells bells, have these luminaries seen what this man has done in the last three and a half years and have they smelled the cesspool in which he’s doing it?
I’d venture to guess that given Jonah’s and Ann’s respective statures in media, both of them could, at the very least, get a personal message of advice to the President. They might even have the pathway for a private sit down. Neither needed to throw the President under the bus to promote their respective brands by offering opinions, which are as snarky as they are wrong.
Jonah Goldberg’s article immediately reveals his own weakness by announcing what he calls “an obvious political fact” before providing any evidence or argument to support it. Then he goes on to reference an article by his colleague, David French, which fails to make the very same point that Jonah fails to make about emergency declarations. In arguing against the declaration, French points out that the emergency “requires the use of the armed forces” and that the relevant funds are being used to “undertake military construction projects . . . that are necessary to support such use of the armed forces.” Neither Goldberg nor French prove that these conditions have not been met. In fact, French says, the military is “required” simply because he [the President] says it is required. Well…French is correct because President Trump is the Commander in Chief and as the Commander, he decides on the disposition and use of troops, ships, weapons and other military resources. He can deploy a Zumwalt-class stealth destroyer anywhere in the world and he can certainly have a wall built to protect us from terrorists, who might be embedded in the caravans assembling and marching towards our southern border.
The President is NOT an idiot. The President is NOT a strutting rooster and he is NOT weak as demonstrated by his performance since he announced his candidacy in 2015.
Ann, Jonah, shame on you.
