No One Needs to Appeal to Trump Voters

This is what Meghan McCain is really trying to do--she's trying to make it so that the Republican brand is not a toxic stew of racism and fuckery. She's trying to salvage the reputation of a party that mostly rejected her father and has embraced the most incompetent, racist fool in modern American history:

Meghan McCain told CNN's Van Jones that she's no fan of President Donald Trump but she sees "a lot of gray zone" when it comes to his supporters and argues their views should not be dismissed.

"It's easy to get very cynical right now. And it's easy to get very jaded. I've certainly found myself going to places like that, that I didn't think I was really capable of in the past 2½ years," McCain told "The Van Jones Show" in an interview to air at 7 p.m. ET Saturday. 

"The View" co-host and daughter of Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, admitted she was "not a huge Trump supporter" but decided on Election Night in 2016 to "try and be as unemotional as possible in analyzing him and his presidency."

"I don't think I suffer from Trump derangement syndrome in a sense that I can separate the man from the White House. I still believe that the White House trumps -- no pun intended -- trumps everything politically that he's doing," she told Jones.

    "I do think that there is a lot of gray zone with Trump supporters, and I would like both of us -- myself included because I'm certainly guilty of this as well -- to stop throwing around the horrible allegations and name-calling."

    Yeah, fuck that shit.

    Who appointed McCain the savior of anything? The vast majority of Republicans view her father as a liberal Democrat bathed in failure and free Cadillacs for welfare queens. I hate to be blunt, but Meghan McCain is lucky to be on television and have anything approaching a media career. It is fitting that a beneficiary of nepotism is actively trying to defend the reputation of a party that has been perverted by a man whose sons are all but useless.

    There is no such thing as "Trump Derangement Syndrome" because everything he has done has been criminally deranged. He has deviated from every behavioral norm established by 44 previous occupants of the White House. And, news flash, he's the face of white supremacy in America. His voters are never going to pull the lever for a Democrat, so why bother appealing to them?

    Sometimes, awful people just aren't worth the trouble.

    Democrats Are Trying to Save America

    Never forget that Trump is a bum. A cheating, lying, stealing bum. He's the kind of bum that gives actual bums (who are usually down on their luck and doing the best they can) a bad name. He's a bum on purpose, you see, and that's the kind of bum that the American people want to see thrown out of office. He's never going to be presidential because he's just a goddamned bum, you see.

    But, sometimes, I think the media is worse:
    As Washington braces for this week’s expected vote to impeach President Donald Trump, partisan battle lines hardened on Sunday, with Democrats defending impeachment even if Trump isn’t removed from office and Republicans denouncing the integrity of the constitutional process.The Democratic-controlled House planned to vote Wednesday on two articles of impeachment against the Republican president, and the decision whether to make Trump the third U.S. president in history to be impeached was expected to play out along party lines. There is some d…

    Spoiler Alert

    Tulsi Gabbard is going to work very, very hard to re-elect Trump:
    Tulsi Gabbard has been slowly edging toward leaving the Democratic Party and, it now seems more likely than not, launching a spoiler candidacy to peel disaffected left-wing votes away from the Democrats. Her “present” vote on impeachment, followed by a disavowal of what she called the “zero-sum mind-set the two political parties have trapped America in,” sets the stage for Gabbard to play the role of 2020’s Jill Stein.Left-wing anti-anti-Trumpism played an important role in the bizarre 2016 outcome.Die-hard Bernie activists, fired up with anger at the release of DNC emails stolen by Russians that purportedly showed the party had rigged the primary, demonstrated against the party outside its convention hall and tried to drown out the speakers inside with boos. Stein attacked Hillary Clinton from the left, then audaciously staged a grift-y fundraising scheme supposedly to hold recounts in the states she had labored to flip…

    Trump Will Burn it All to the Ground

    It is difficult to see how the latest war in the Middle East will end. I don't have any answers, and, really, no one else does, either.

    Here's what people should pay attention to--this happened just as evidence of Trump's orders to the Department of Defense landed on the front page. This happened after the major holidays and just as we are beginning the 2020 primary season in earnest on the Democratic side (the GOP has decided to prevent another Pat Buchanan moment, circa 1992, from happening).

    Every life that is lost is because of Trump's decisions.

    Every penny that this increases the price of gas is a tax on the poor and allows people who regularly have access to Trump to maximize their profits.

    Every American traveling overseas is less safe.

    Everyone who cares about peace will be shouted down and marginalized because that is the media's job.

    Every attempt to hold Trump accountable will probably fail because the GOP is complicit in all of his crimes.

    Everyone ch…
