In Friday’s dog bites man story, the mainstream media is reporting that Jeb Bush will not be voting for Donald Trump. The bespectacled Florida eunuch follows his father and brother who in a desperate cry for relevance earlier this week both shocked the planet by saying that they would not be backing Trump either. The fallout from the great Ted Cruz implosion continues to rock the GOP establishment with the big names like Bush, Mitt and Lindsey Graham resorting to stomping up and down and throwing temper tantrums and bawling that they won’t be going to Cleveland. They are acting like temperamental little children who refuse to eat their broccoli.
The nexus of anti-Trump hatred at the Washington Post is giving this stunning news the treatment that it sees fit in the story “Jeb Bush and Lindsey Graham won’t back Trump”:
Two of Donald Trump’s defeated rivals said Friday that they will not support him in the general election, predicting disaster for the party and asking conservatives to focus on electing Republicans to offices down the ballot.
Former Florida governor Jeb Bush, whom Trump had treated with utter contempt during primary season, announced his decision in a Facebook post. Dismissing Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton as an “untrustworthy liberal politician,” Bush said he would “support principled conservatives at the state and federal levels, just as I have done my entire life.” To Bush, that does not include Trump.
“The American Presidency is an office that goes beyond just politics,” Bush wrote. “It requires of its occupant great fortitude and humility and the temperament and strong character to deal with the unexpected challenges that will inevitably impact our nation in the next four years. Donald Trump has not demonstrated that temperament or strength of character. He has not displayed a respect for the Constitution. And, he is not a consistent conservative. These are all reasons why I cannot support his candidacy.”
They could have featured it in the who gives a rat’s ass section for as badly as
Manny, Moe and Jack Jeb!, Mitt and Lindsey were punked by voters who don’t hold them in the same high esteem as the cadre of Sunday morning McNews show ass-kissers. This is especially the case for the former Florida governor who was virtually assured of the nomination before the Donald crashed the party and pissed all over their parade. Jeb! was Trump’s bitch from the day that he declared his candidacy until the day that he slinked off of the stage in South Carolina with his tail between his legs after he got his ass kicked at the polls.
Trump may have been snubbed by the RINO royalty – including the conniving little shit Paul Ryan – but he had a pretty good day in landing the blessing of former Vice President Dick Cheney as well as casino mogul billionaire mega-donor Sheldon Adelson. If the Republicans are to keep the Clinton crime family from their expected return to the White House then there is going to have to be a unification behind the all but certain nominee. Say what you will about Cheney – and there is plenty – but he can’t be accused of not being a team player. Too bad that Jeb!, Mitt and Lindsey along with the other losers care more about their own egos and agendas than pulling together for the greater cause.
