When Donald Trump watched Megyn Kelly’s return to her show on Monday, he decided to take a few shots at her on Twitter. This caused a bit of blowback from the media, but who else really cares? It won’t cost The Donald a single vote. When Kelly decided to spearhead an attack designed to end Donald’s candidacy she became his political foe. Now she finds herself subject to his Twitter attacks:
We are a nation of laws, not men. When there are legitimate suspicions regarding illegality or impropriety at the highest levels of government, we have mechanisms in place to ensure at least an appearance of objectivity during an investigation. One of these would be the Attorney General referring matters to the the Office of Special Counsel. Appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate Executive Branch officials shields the Administration from accusations of a cover-up. Why hasn’t this occurred in the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her use of a private email system and server during her tenure at the State Department?
For quite some time our politicians have gotten away with lying directly to the American people. President Obama said that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” when attempting to sell us on Obamacare. That wasn’t exactly true. George W. Bush said that we shouldn’t engage in “nation building,” and yet that was the core strategy he utilized while waging war after 9/11. Bill Clinton lied to us so often that Democrats started bragging about what a great liar he was. Hillary Clinton has also been lying to us, and we’ve known it all along.
Let’s get a few things straight. I am not a dispassionate observer, I’ve been a big supporter of Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul in their careers, and in with their current runs for the Republican presidential nomination. My major concerns have been about the ever-growing size of government, and it’s increasing control over the minutia of our lives. With those priorities, both Cruz and Paul have been my two main choices in this primary season. But Donald Trump has altered the political landscape and affected all of our choices.
The media and the professional political class are dumbfounded at the rise of Donald Trump. First they said that he was only pretending to run for President for the free publicity. Then they said that he’d never publicly release his financial information. Then NBC, Univision, and Macy’s severed business ties with him. That was probably a mistake if the idea was to stop his White House run, as he now has nothing to lose.
