Tucker Carlson, author of the title above and a writer for Politico Magazine and editor-in-chief of the Daily Caller, is one of my very favorite thinker/writers.
On January 28th, as I was losing faith in Donald Trump, Carlson wrote an article about Trump that re-invigorated me:
For quite a few months now I had been telling my friends that Donald Trump had pulled the sword from the stone and by doing so, had become America’s de facto leader. He didn’t look like the guy I had envisioned choosing for president. He is what people call older men: a man of a certain age.
Every day I would ask myself, is this the guy I really want to lead America – this loud-mouthed New Yorker on the old side? There would be an upcoming debate and I would cringe – don’t let him say something awful.
Trump pulled out a Bible last week and I remembered when my dad ran for Sheriff in Selinsgrove, PA and went to church one week, having not gone to church for years, and lost the election when he showed up. People were pissed. Would Trump lose the Iowa caucus after doing this?
Trump is like the Beast in Beauty in the Beast.
He is awful. He says horrible stuff about everything and everybody.
He has orange hair. He does stupid stuff. But when he does all this goofy stuff people try to help him. Just a few days ago i responded to one of his tweets saying “Lay off Megyn Kelly, you’re close to becoming a stalker.”
Afer I read Tucker’s article and I knew I was right all along. Earlier than most people. Probably earlier than Tucker whose last paragraph is…
“I doubt there are many Christian voters who think Trump could recite the Nicene Creed, or even identify it. Evangelicals have given up trying to elect one of their own. What they’re looking for is a bodyguard, someone to shield them from mounting (and real) threats to their freedom of speech and worship. Trump fits that role nicely, better in fact than many church-going Republicans. For eight years, there was a born-again in the White House. How’d that work out for Christians, here and in Iraq?”
