Trump: Trying to Date the Preacher’s Daughter

When I wrote the piece on South Carolina (https://onemadmomblog.wordpress.com/2016/02/16/south-carolina-dum-spiro-spero/), I really expected to hear a lot of back and forth bantering on the virtues of Rubio vs. Cruz. What I’m seeing is people extolling the virtues of (or more like making half-hearted arguments for) Trump because they’re scared. It’s really shocking coming from Catholics or evangelicals. Please, Trumpies, take a moment and ask yourself which of these thing attract you most about Trump.

Do you support him because:

-he supported abortion, including partial birth abortion, until he decided to run for president, and in the last week, he’s extolled the virtue of Planned Parenthood? (You’d think “The Donald” would know what “fungible” money is. Here’s the thing. He does.)

-he’s built and owned adult entertainment businesses? (Maybe he’ll have his presidential portrait be with him and the Playboy Bunnies?)

-he’s on his third marriage and has said some just lovely things about how husbands should financially treat their wives? (Things he has learned as a philanderer?)

-he’s tried to evict an old lady to build a parking lot?

-his stance on “gay marriage”? (You’d be quite on target if you asked what in the heck that was.)

-his use of profanity? (Seriously, you are suggesting people vote for someone who willfully swears on camera. Explain that to your kids.)

-his profane suggestions about MANY different women? (Mommy, what’s “good on your knees” mean?)

-he’s stated he’s never asked God for forgiveness (that is until it affected his poll numbers)? (Can you say god-complex?)

– he said this: “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.” (Can you say narcissistic personality disorder?)

-he said “I’m very capable of changing to anything I want to change to.” (And haven’t we seen that already?)

I was watching someone interviewed about Trump and he made THE most excellent verbal illustration about Trump. He said “He’s just trying to date the preacher’s daughter.” That nailed it better than all of the voluminous things said about Trump. Succinct. The really sad thing is that the “preachers” are totally and utterly falling for it. Wake up, Christians voting for Trump! You’re being taken. You look utterly ridiculous and YOU are ruining the country right now. Why? Because you are scared. This is where the rubber meets the road, Christians. You don’t ditch God in your vote because you are scared He isn’t electable. You fall for this EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. Eight years and you’ve learned absolutely nothing. It’s either that or you’ve ditched the whole Christianity part of your civic duty. Are you compartmentalizing? “I’m Catholic/Christian here, but I just want to win over there”?

Can I just remind you Trumpies that there was a guy in the Bible who was told to kill his beloved child and he was going to follow through because it was God’s command and he trusted God? Really? And we can’t vote for a more morally decent candidate than Trump? TRUST IN GOD, people. He will give us what we need to win if we do so.

  1. It’s also important to remember that:

    1. evangelicals come in a variety of flavors;
    2. evangelicals themselves don’t always agree on who is and who is not an evangelical; and
    3. as far as the media are concerned, anyone with a Southern accent must be an evangelical.

    I suspect that a lot of these so-called evangelicals haven’t been to church in ten or twenty years.

    Finally, if Trump and HilLIARy had a lying contest, it would end in a tie. They are both pathological liars.

  2. The Trumpies use contraception
    Then, there are not enough kids.
    So they need to bring in immigrants to fill the lower level jobs kids usually do.
    Then the Trumpies complain that too many immigrants are coming in.

  3. What’s dumb is to think that voting for one of the other candidates means you aren’t falling for something. We have Obamacare and gay “marriage” because of republican-appointed justices. Republican-appointees have controlled the Supreme Court for most of the time since Roe v Wade but we still have legal abortion. Voting for someone because he says abortion or gay marriage is wrong isn’t going to alter those facts on the ground. So the candidate selling himself on those points is selling you something. And many anti-Trump people are buying it. Pro-Trump people recognize now that that stuff isn’t negotiable and isn’t going to change even if Ben Carson got elected. It’s done, we lost, and we lost in part because we tried to elect people like John McCain and Mitt Romney who sell themselves on those points with no real intention to bust some heads and actually make it happen and “social issues” voters bought it. On the other hand, it does seem like Trump will build a wall and cut back immigration and rev up American businesses. That could actually get done. And he’ll force it to happen like Obama forced Obamacare to happen. And if it doesn’t, well, it’s not like there was a better chance with anyone else in the field, and it’s not like the social issues would have changed if anyone else were elected, either.

    1. Actually, Patrick, I’d agree with most of what you say. The judicial area is THE most important thing the next president is going to do and it’s either going to be more O’connors, Kennedys and Roberts or those who follow the Constitution. That said, walls, etc. are not the most paramount to our society. Please note I didn’t say important. I said there are more important things.

      Next, I would disagree with the Carson statement. He’s not my guy but would be immensely better than Trump and would possibly put forth good judicial appointments and nominees (or at least likely better than Trump). Rubio, I’m not sure I could say that about him. Of course, I’m for Cruz because I think he best fits the bill of following the Constitution, appointing good judges and going to the people when a stalemate is reached.

      It’s the primary. There’s not a snowball’s chance in hell I’d vote for an immoral, profane, unscrupulous louse like Trump. When we get down to the general, I will pick the one I feel is the lesser of the two evils. Hopefully there will be a crystal clear line of who that is.

    2. No, you have Obamacare because a Congress voted for it. Then, a Supreme Court Justice, doing the right thing, refused to overturn something the people’s congress voted for. It is not the job of the Supreme court to knock out every law that YOU disagree with. If the Congress voted for it, then they should not interfere.

      As to gay marriage, There ONE justice appointed by Republicans went along with it, all the othersd did not. That one should be removed from office. They had no right to enforce gay marriage on the country, and that is what all four other Republican appointed justices said. That one nutball Justice is the one who upheld Roe V Wade, too, otherwise it would have been overturned. But you blame his nutballness on the Republicans, who appointed four good justices to the court. You obviously don’t understand the situation.

      But you want to put in place a guy who is PRO GAY MARRIAGE in Trump. In most other ways, Trump would probably be mostly just like a Democrat. He has been a major liar all his life and you think he is going to do something.

      So, you are going to completely destroy the Supreme court. Trump will nominate more Democrats who will pass laws and ignore the Constitution. Cruz or Rubio would not do this. You are making the biggest mistake of your life, and you are going to really regret destroying the country after Trump completely fails to do one thing.

      We saw the same thing when Jesse Ventura was elected governor of MN. He too, seemed to be all for the averaage guy. He knew the right things to say. When he was elected, the people celebrated that finally someone JUST LIKE THEM was in office. But he was not, he was just a Democrat who knew the right things to say, and he broke pretty much all his promises. He did nothing, and was a big failure and wasted all our time.

      1. That’s how it is with every Republican. I’m not making any mistake, let alone the biggest of my life. You’re making a small mistake by thinking that nominating Rubio would change the outcome, even if he got elected. Trump is right–conservatives always lose. I think it’s all upside with Trump. Because even if he loses the election, we crushed the imbeciles who allowed McCain and Romney to run. And if he wins and builds a wall and deports the 11 million, we win. And if he wins and doesn’t build a wall and doesn’t deport, well, it wasn’t going to happen any way. We have nothing to lose except all influence forever once democrat immigrants outnumber us which is certain to happen with Rubio. Cruz isn’t going to get nominated. Also, it never happens that liberal justices somehow end up to the right with these issues. Weird, huh?

        1. You need to brush up on the history of Reagan. The establishment is treating Cruz the exact same way. If you want to vote for a profane, swindling, lying guy embroiled in a lawsuit, go right ahead. I’m Catholic and, unless he’s the lesser of two evils, he’s not getting my vote in the primary. The Cruz doesn’t have a prayer mantra is getting old.

          1. Voting for Trump isn’t voting for profanity, swindling, or lying. It’s voting for someone who will build the wall. Voting for someone soft-spoken, honest, and sterling in his personal life but who won’t build the wall isn’t an option in my view. I also don’t think Cruz, even if he got nominated, would beat Clinton. He’s weird, kind of awkward, not that appealing or charismatic, unlike Reagan.

  4. And, btw, we haven’t nominated a conservative since 1980. Try it, you might like it. Presidents can only nominate the people they think to follow the constitution the best. Roberts looked very good on paper but failed as did O’Connor.

  5. Yes it is.

    Not to oppose error is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it; and indeed to neglect to confound evil men, when we can do it, is no less a sin than to encourage them. ~Pope St. Felix III

    Cruz is for building walls and we’ve actually paid to have them built so I’m reasonably sure that Cruz wants that honored. https://www.tedcruz.org/cruz-immigration-plan-summary/

    Now, you can say you want to build a wall all you want but if you don’t have a plan other than to “make Mexico pay for it,” it’s not going to get done.
