Trump’s Tweets Are Damaging
the Republican Character

National Review, by David French

Original Article

Posted By:bemused conservative, 10/13/2017 4:48:30 AM

No short-term political victory is worth the long-term cultural degradation the president is guaranteeing the GOP. The vast majority of commentary about Donald Trump’s tweets centers on Trump: What do they say about his state of mind? Do they signal a change in American policy? Will he follow through on his threats? Is he a master media manipulator or just angry? Is he playing nine-dimensional chess or is he simply undisciplined and impulsive? I want to focus on another question entirely: What are Trump’s tweets doing to the political character of his Republican supporters? I focus on his tweets because

Comments:
I´m applying the IODI test to Trump´s behavior:
If Obama Did It, would Always Trumpers still be sanguine? Publically criticise your own Secretary of State? Blast Senators from your own party and alienate people you need to get your programs passed? Make personal comments about appearance? Continually make the discussion all about "Me, Me, Me"? IODI, would that be OK?

If the GOPe would support the President, and pad the legislation that We, the People elected them to, it wouldn´t damage anything, except the Left and the GOPe...

Didn´t this "journalist", David French, run for president and against Trump, nominated by the idiot that runs the Weakly Standard, the inimical and stupid Bill Krystal? Enough said and enough to know that I will move along to something more substantial here on Lucianne.

What the GOPe and democrats can´t fathom is this President´s commitment to getting things done in the cesspool of a swamp that moves along with longstanding slow moving corruption. These perveyors of virtue and protocol are themselves the very picture of self-serving corruptocrats looking down their pointy noses at the guy trying his best to put an end to the theft and betrayal of these esteemed public servants. What they can´t abide is truth. The President tweets out a sentence of truth and it hits home and they have no where to hide. He puts it out there for the American public to see and chaos ensues from those he skewers.

What would the political climate look like today if the President did not have his Twitter account? It would be a bloodbath everyday by his enemies. They want the field of battle to themselves and this warrior President refuses to yield. Good on him. Tweet on, Mr. President. Your enemies have declared war on you and your pro-American agenda, and we thank you for fighting back on our behalf.

By the way, the Republican character is nothing to brag about unless you believe betraying the very voters who put you in office is a virtue.

Actually, President Trump is right, and David French is wrong. Over the air television and radio transmissions are granted via a Federal Communications Commission License, which can be revoked, if broadcasts are determined to be "not in the public interest." https://www.fcc.gov/media/television/television

David French is usually considered a smart man, therefore he knows this or ought to know this. He is either misdirecting, or has gone stupid on this point, pick at least one.

David, dear. You really shouldn´t clutch those pearls so tightly; the string might break and then you´d spend the rest of your life picking them up and trying to restring them. You need a professional for that job. And for yours. Why can´t you just relax and enjoy the ride. You and your mama are the only people who think you are perfect.

I´m with you, OP!! But really, the Republican character effectively died when they nominated that life-long liberal New York Democrat (and donor!!) as their presidential nominee. It shocked me to my core to realize that so many "conservatives" were just as unprincipled and fanatical as any left-wing Kool Aid drinker. To paraphrase Reagan, "I didn´t leave the Republican Party, they left me."

It´s time to move that movie "Idiocracy" over to the documentary shelf.

I´m not exactly a Trump fan -- he´s inconsistent, has too many liberal/totalitarian tendencies, and is generally an ass.

But he is an ass for whom I ultimately voted, and who is infinitely superior to the radical Democrat agenda and the pigs like McCain, the cowardly turtle who runs the senate or Paul "let´s seize guns" Ryan.

The bleating of the Never Trumpers needs to cease.

Someone ought to fetch Mr. French his smelling salts. He goes on like the old woman in Gone With the Wind who is shocked to learn that Scarlett has gone out to help the wounded - without a chaperone.

French may live in Trump country but obviously has made no effort to really understand it. After all, it´s all just so uncouth, y´know.

Do folks here remember Mr. French, the prissy fussbudget played by Sebastian Cabot in the ´60´s series "Family Affair"? That´s the guy I imagine behind the keyboard tapping out this dispiriting dreck. Maybe he ought to find his parasol and take the children for a stroll in the park.

You mean the establishment Republican LOSER character? I´m sure Romney holds his head up high every day but no one listens to him and we had to suffer through 4 more years of BO because Romney COULDN´T GET THE JOB DONE.

Romney, being a businessman, should understand you can have all the great ideas in the world but if you can´t EXECUTE, you are worthless. Getting elected is but the first step of getting things done. The losers in Congress still haven´t learned their lesson.

The snotty remarks about Always Trumpers should add that they are Always Americans. Tired of being told they are delusional, cultists, and all the other rubbish that the still-festering losers have thrown at them since nearly Day One.

I’d run my brain and my common sense, and my independent thinking, as well as my patriotism, against any of them on any day.

On the contrary, his tweets are exposing the GOP establishment´s lack of character. President Trump was elected because we knew he would fight back on his and our behalf instead of just bending over and grabbing ankle like most of the GOP establishment. The pen may be mightier than the sword, but Trump´s tweets are turning out to be mightier than the pen.

French is endowing a political party with a character. Perhaps he doesn’t know that character is very personal. Something an individual human being has or has not. An organization is made up of persons who may or may not have character.

French meant image. He is an image guy who dislikes President Donald J. Trump and decided that Trump just doesn’t behave the way he thinks a Republican president should behave. Like he would have behaved had he become president.

Never mind the country and its fate, which had been put in peril by the previous president. French is about Republican image. Identifies as a Republican first and an American somewhere down the line.

That is my takeaway from what I read.

A lot of truth in this article and the proof is in the posts. We´ve had hated the things Obama did, but suddenly it´s okay for Trump to do the same? Talk about hypocrites. As for the mention of the disgusting Weinstein, what would be said, if he has proof that Trump was "partying " right alongside of him? I like some of the things he´s done, I appreciated him coming to my city and praising the people who helped the poor shooting victims, but I am not going to praise the way he treats others in his tweets. It just makes him look small.

OXFORD, England — From the comfort of his country estate in Oxford, a distant relative of the Russian literary giant Tolstoy says he has the perfect solution for what ails the United States. America, he declares, needs a monarchy. In fact, Count Nikolai Tolstoy says, more kings, queens and all the frippery that royalty brings would be not just a salve for a superpower in political turmoil, but also a stabilizing force for the world at large. “I love the monarchy,” Count Tolstoy, 82, said as he sat in his lush garden behind an expansive stone house. “Most people think the monarchy is

It turns out that in beer-drinking circles I would be considered unfashionable. Not because I insist on wearing cargo shorts or dad jeans. With the exception of Garrett Oliver, the brewmaster of Brooklyn Brewery, what do beer nerds know about stylish clothing anyway? I don’t care much about fashion, either. But I do care about the beer I drink, which apparently would be considered hopelessly uninteresting by those who follow the latest trends. I’m talking about wonderful, thirst-quenching, conversation-inducing beers, the type that you can drink a lot of almost without noticing. Brown ale, for example. Recently, the beer panel tasted 20 examples

Phase two of the remaking of Trump. An internal conflict over the trajectory of the GOP’s evolution in the Trump era quietly reached a turning point in late 2017 that has become clear only in hindsight. The “originals”–who joined Trump’s campaign when no other Republican political professionals would–have been purged or sidelined. The president has opted to outsource his legislative priorities to conventional Republicans in Congress, and he has delegated the conduct of foreign affairs to responsible administration officials. The contemptible alt-right and their “America First” allies are beside themselves even as erstwhile Trump skeptics in the GOP are suddenly

There are times in life when the institutional ground underneath you begins to crumble — and with it, longstanding attachments. Such is the case for me when it comes to the Republican Party and evangelicalism. I’ve been a part of both for my entire adult life. These days, though, in many important ways they are having harmful effects on our society. The latest example is in Alabama, where Roy Moore, the Republican Senate candidate, stands accused of varying degrees of sexual misconduct by nine women, including one who was 14 years old at the time.

For all of President Trump’s tweeted thunderings about “fake news,” one could be forgiven for thinking that he enjoys spreading it himself. What other explanation can there be for Mr. Trump’s impulse to retweet three half-baked videos from the website of the U.K. fringe group Britain First? When this sort of tweeting bubbles out of the fever swamps, hardly anyone notices anymore. Or they pass it off as an emission from Vladimir Putin’s low-rent Russian propaganda shop. But when it flows from the cellphone of the U.S. President, everyone takes note. Which is why what happened in the wake of President

Who Are Sufi Muslims and Why

Sufism is a mystical form of Islam, a school of practice that emphasizes the inward search for God and shuns materialism. It has produced some of the world’s most beloved literature, like the love poems of the 13th century Iranian jurist Rumi. Its modern-day adherents cherish tolerance and pluralism, qualities that in many religions unsettle extremists. But Sufism, often known as Islamic mysticism, has come under violent attack in recent years. On Friday, militants stormed a Sufi mosque on the Sinai Peninsula, killing at least 305 people in what officials are calling the worst terrorist attack in Egypt’s modern history. The

AIRO — Militants detonated a bomb inside a crowded mosque in the Sinai Peninsula on Friday and then sprayed gunfire on panicked worshipers as they fled, killing at least 305 people and wounding at least 128 others. Officials called it the deadliest terrorist attack in Egypt’s modern history. The scale and ruthlessness of the assault, in an area racked by an Islamist insurgency, sent shock waves across the nation — not just for the number of deaths but also for the choice of target. Attacks on mosques are rare in Egypt, where the Islamic State has targeted Coptic Christian churches and

These incidents are peculiarly American tragedies, and what’s particularly heartbreaking is that they aren’t shocking.

Is health care a right? The United States remains the only developed country in the world unable to come to agreement on an answer. Earlier this year, I was visiting Athens, Ohio, the town in the Appalachian foothills where I grew up. The battle over whether to repeal, replace, or repair the Affordable Care Act raged then, as it continues to rage now. So I began asking people whether they thought that health care was a right. The responses were always interesting. A friend had put me in touch with a forty-seven-year-old woman I’ll call Maria Dutton. She lived with her

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for “mansplaining” to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a sharp and one-sided exchange Wednesday before a Senate committee. The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century.

It is at that location one sees a daily procession of donors, political operatives, party affiliates (BOTH Democrat and Republican) media friends (of which there are many) and more shadowy figures representing a myriad of foreign interests. And each day this office and its two primary inhabitants – Obama and Jarrett, are asked the same question: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT TRUMP?

Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights. Last year, Ploumen founded a pro-abortion organization called She Decides, which offers funding and support for international NGOs that provide, facilitate or campaign for abortion. In an email to the Catholic Herald, Ms. Ploumen said that she was “very honoured” by the pontifical medal, which was sent via the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs last month. In an interview with Dutch radio, Ploumen said she views the honor as a

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s chief medical correspondent, proclaimed that based on President Donald Trump’s coronary calcium scores going back to the previous decade, Trump has heart disease. Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, offered his assessment of Trump’s health at a White House press briefing. “When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn — this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive,” Gupta said. “And if the number gets up

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a

CNN´s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said Wednesday that he believes tests reveal that President Trump has heart disease. Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart."

Gupta then talked about his interaction Tuesday with President Trump´s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr.

Microwaves are as damaging to the environment as cars and users must be taught how to cook more efficiently, scientists say. The ovens are responsible for 7.7 million tons of the ­carbon dioxide pumped out from the EU each year — the equivalent of 6.8 million cars. Researchers say they are fueling global warming with consumers overcooking food to blame. Microwaves account for the largest percentage of sales of all types of oven in the EU, with numbers set to reach 135 million by 2020. But scientists at the University of Manchester — the first to assess the environmental impact

In an exclusive interview with Utah Gov. Gary Herbert, FOX Business was told that Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential nominee, will likely receive the backing of mega-donors, not just within Utah, but across the country as he gets ready to announce his candidacy. “He’s given me every indication that he’s running. He’ll have a lot of support from the wealthy people that he knows from when he ran for president. The people on the same list of donors that he had before for 2012, including those from Utah, is a very good place for him to raise money,” Herbert, a

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday condemned President Trump’s combative attitude toward the press and called on Congress to protect journalists worldwide. “Whether Trump knows it or not, these efforts are being closely watched by foreign leaders who are already using his words as cover as they silence and shutter one of the key pillars of democracy,” McCain said in an opinion piece published in The Washington Post. McCain called the Trump administration’s treatment of journalists “inconsistent at best and hypocritical at worst,” particularly when it comes to condemning attacks on the press abroad. McCain cited foreign leaders who have
