Mad As Hell At Boehner & McConnell, So You Support Trump?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In the last few months we have witnessed the rise of the Trump in the GOP primary contest. He got in and immediately rocked the boat in the race, settling on immigration as his niche to find a way early on. And it worked. His rhetoric propelled him to the top of the polls.

Other candidates (most notably Rick Perry who is sadly no longer a candidate) have had little success in going after Donald Trump and when they do, his supporters just seem to defend him with more vigor than ever.

For some time I would try to ask people what it is they saw in Trump and most often the answers would include several different reasons:

  1. He fights (Other politicians, the media, etc)
  2. He is not politically correct
  3. He’s going to kick out the illegals and build a wall

The only reason with any semblance of policy behind it is the immigration stance and Trump has been all over the map with details. In fact on most policy matters, Trump’s viewpoint changes so much it’s hard to keep up. He recently changed his view on Syrian refugees and whether or not the United States should take any within a span of 24 hours. 

I joked that we’re not far off from Trump changing his mind on an issue mid-sentence:

“I like taxes. They’re terrific and we should raise them a lot but I am going eliminate all taxes to make America great again!”

Trump’s appeal ranges from a mix of populism, entertainment value and of course, the loathing of the bogey-man “establishment.” When digging a bit deeper on the issue of “fighting” you learn that many Trump supporters are people that cannot stand Speaker Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% and Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) 58%.

Their thought process says, “He is willing to have the fights that those guys are not willing to have.” This wouldn’t sound like an irrational reason if Donald Trump wanted to run Congress and was looking to serve as Speaker or Majority Leader.

But he’s running for President of the United States and as such, it’s just bizarre that people would even think he would improve anything. In addition, it doesn’t seem to make much sense that people are saying Boehner and McConnell don’t fight harder for the issues people care about to then support a person who doesn’t even hold the same view on those very issues. 

One of the issues that has been driving conservatives crazy (and I am one) is the GOP’s refusal to even try to engage President Obama on the issue of funding for Planned Parenthood. McConnell has basically already capitulated on the issue. People are upset and they say it’s part of what is driving people to Trump. How does that help? Donald Trump supports subsidizing Planned Parenthood’s 300k+ abortions a year with taxpayer dollars.

Forget any polls you see now showing Trump tied or ahead with Hillary Clinton in a general election right now as they are in no way indicative of what we’ll see if Trump is the GOP nominee. That said, one can bet Democratic operatives are sitting on a treasure trove of opposition research that will be unleashed like a tidal wave should Trump become the GOP nominee.

Do people really want what could be eight years of Hillary Clinton in office just so they can have the satisfaction of “sticking it to the man?” It’s like deciding you don’t like the color of the paint you chose for your bedroom and coming to the conclusion that burning the house down is the best “solution.”

The frustration people are feeling towards the GOP leadership is understandable and reasonable. But supporting Trump? It’s just like burning the house down.
