Charles Krauthammer

hypocrisy

On Wednesday’s airing of “Special Report with Bret Baier,” Charles Krauthammer suggested that President Trump shouldn’t really be surprised by the Democratic decries over his firing of FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday.

“It’s surprising that he should be surprised,” Krauthammer said. “These people are hypocrites from the day of their birth. It’s in their DNA. That’s how they function. It was to be expected.”

He continued, “Yes, you say you want Comey to be fired one day, and then as soon as he gets fired, you attack the man who does it, but that’s normal.”

Talking about the “hypocrisy of the Democrats,” simply said that “Democrat’s don’t like this guy,” referring to Trump.

“The Democrats are looking for an excuse to say that there’s a great collusion conspiracy, and this is all being done in defense of that conspiracy — which I think remains implausible,” he said, “because if that was the intent of the Trump administration, it’s a colossal mistake. It had the opposite effect.”

In a move that shocked the Republicans, Democrats, and the entire county, President Trump dismissed Comey from his position on Tuesday night.

A statement from the White House read:

“Today, President Donald J. Trump informed FBI Director James Comey that he has been terminated and removed from office. President Trump acted based on the clear recommendations of both Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.”

“The FBI is one of our Nation’s most cherished and respected institutions and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement.”

In addition to the President’s statement, Senator Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) released a statement that seemed to support the president’s decision.

“I know this was a difficult decision for all concerned. I appreciate Director Comey’s service to our nation in a variety of roles.”

“Given the recent controversies surrounding the director, I believe a fresh start will serve the FBI and the nation well. I encourage the President to select the most qualified professional available who will serve our nation’s interests.”

Establishment

The clowns of the National Review are at it again.

Charles Krauthammer, the Pulitzer Prize winning, pro-abortion, interventionist (if it suits Israel), and defender of the Republican Establishment, penned a column yesterday screaming “So what?” that 60% of voters are throwing their support behind anti-establishment candidates such as Trump, Carson and Cruz.

Krauthammer softens the attack on his peers by saying, “There’s nothing wrong with challenging the so-called establishment . . . if by establishment you mean careerists, the lobbyists, and the sold-out cynic, then  a good poke, even a major purge, is well-deserved.”

The career establishment journalist, who was a major backer of George Bush’s Iraq War, and the “weapons of mass destruction” fable, flips the anti-establishment support for Trump into an attack of the billionaire’s appeal.

Krauthammer states that “Trumpian populism” garnered only 24% support after Iowa, while conservatives where defined as supporters of Rubio and Cruz, who surpassed 51% support.

Krauthammer essentially argues that no self-respecting conservative could support Trump.

The journalist hawk’s consideration of Rubio as a conservative is laughable as the Florida senator is simply an establishment alternative to Jeb Bush’s flailing campaign.

At this point, Krauthammer and other establishment cronies are terrified of a Trump presidency. Why? Because they have no influence over the man.

Being part of the establishment means that they have to be invited to sit with the “cool kids” in the cafeteria, and Trump has offered no such invitation.

Instead, rather than allowing Krauthammer and GOP insiders a place at the table, Trump has indefinitely closed the door to their influence by figuratively proclaiming, “there is no table.”

The snarling rants of Krauthammer and his National Review cocktail buddies will resound until the day that Trump wins the GOP nomination. Then, like good little establishment hacks, they will bow their heads, shuffle up to the nominee and beg to be stroked like a homeless puppy pining for a home.
