Trump is no Republican…Thank God!

Updated on August 27, 2017

Blazing His Own Trail

It shouldn’t surprise you or anyone else who has followed Trump from the very beginning, he is rogue. If you remember he didn’t want to be a Republican, but became a Republican because he thought, and rightly so, that he couldn’t win the White House without the support of the Republican Party. But lost that support right away because he wasn’t following the Republican strategies which are, after all, political.

Throughout the campaign the citizens knew, and many politicians on both sides knew, Trump wasn’t a politician.

He wasn’t a Democrat or Republican.

He wasn’t a Washington insider.

He wasn’t politically correct.

He was Trump.

Period.

Rogue.

Can't You Be Like Us?

As politicians often do, the Washington elite came to realize this long after the nomination, the election, and swearing in. They wanted him to be like them, political.

Trump isn’t representing the Republican Party. He is representing the people…and his supporters like it and the politicians don’t.

Those supporters by the way, are the silent majority and the politicians can’t stand it.

In response to Trumps comments that he made at a press conference concerning Charlottesville, Retired Senator, John Danforth called on Republicans to—

“…disassociate ourselves from Trump” and “…he does not represent what it means to be a Republican…We are the party of the Union, and (Trump) is the most divisive president in our history,” Danforth wrote. “There hasn’t been a more divisive person in national politics since George Wallace.”

She Didn't Say That...Did She?

I think he got it wrong about Wallace, who said “…In the name of the greatest people that have ever trod this earth, I draw a line in the dust and toss the gauntlet before the feet of tyranny, and I say, segregation now, segregation tomorrow and segregation forever."

Trump never said that.

He said, “You had a group on one side that was bad and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent,” Trump said. “No one wants to say that, but I'll say it right now: You had a group on the other side that came charging in without a permit and they were very, very violent.”

By speaking the truth he won the tongue lashing from…well, everybody in Washington.

Missouri Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal posted on FaceBook, “I hope Trump is assassinated!” She said that she posted it in response to worries over white supremacist and claimed that the fears were, “…worse than Ferguson.” She later apologized, but was stripped her of committee assignments as pressure grew for her to resign.

She doesn’t get Trump at all, but I have to hand it to ole’ J.D. he understands—Trump is not a politician. Those who voted for him knew this and that’s why he got their vote. Washington, however, expected Trump to fit into their mold and that wasn’t going to happen. Never will. Trump is his own man and not owned by anyone.

I’m sure Washington would prefer him to lay down with his arms and feet in the air while they scratch his belly. Perhaps he could do tricks for treats. Nah, we had eight years of that already.
