David Frum Has A Moment of Clarity: Trump Is The Product of Republicans

David Frum just noticed that his Republican Party is full of Republicans(™ driftglass):

There Is No Trumpism Without Trump

It’s kind of charming to watch Chimpy McStagger’s speechwriter David (‘Axis of Evil’) Frum twig-out that it is not Trump, it is his stinking party. It’s an interesting article, but if you are a regular reader of Lefty Blogs (and again, Driftglass’ in particular) you already know that the problem does not begin/end with Trump. The whole Republican enterprise is rotten to the core; Trump is the product, not the problem.

If only someone had warned the Republicans decades ago. Pity.

  1. But if resentment didn’t work politically for George Wallace in 1968.

    Someone REALLY needs to point out that it sure as hell worked politically for Tricky Dick Nixon in ’72. And Ronny Ray-gun in 1980. And Newticles in ’94. Of course Shrub simply used the fear card, as you well know, you murderous git, but y’all went right back to resentment the picosecond a black man got elected President.

      Yeah, I thought that was weird too. I had no idea that George Wallace was such a towering powerhouse genius of politics that anything he failed at is by definition something that mere mortals shouldn’t even attempt.

      Resentment worked well in 1968, too, except it was split between Nixon and Wallace, who ran as an independent. Nixon had a meeting with Wallace during his first term, there may have been something said about not prosecuting Wallace’s brother, and Wallace then ran as a Democrat.

      And combining the resentment vote got Nixon his 1972 landslide.

    Like Hitler and the National Socialists, it was fated that Trump and the GOP would find each other. (Remember, he was once a registered Democrat, as was Giuliani.) And in the short term, they were good for each other. Luckily, Trump’s Thousand Year Reich only lasted four years, not twelve.

    Someone must have slipped some extra strength Focus Factor in his poutine.

    But how can Carlson and Junior Mints overdo the resentment? That oozes from Trump’s pores like his orange makeup.

        They will all have their excuses ready to support what ever capitalist asshole they put forward on the ticket- they will not care who it is or who all will be hurt- as long as they get their tax cuts. I have these fucking people so much.

    What’s his end game, here – that is what I keep thinking.
    When you’re plummeting from the burning plane you set on fire, it’s kind of late to complain about the lack of parachutes.

      Specially when these are the very people who not only set the fire- but also decided that parachutes were too expensive to include on the flight.

        … AND mocked all the people yelling “Don’t do it! It’s too dangerous!” from the tarmac as they took off, calling them ‘Libtards! Snowflakes! Better go find your safe place! You’ll be tired of all the winning!”
