Brit Hume argues on Twitter: “I suppose you can also be pro-tax cuts, pro-deregulation, pro-defense increases, pro-gun rights, pro-life and anti-Trump. But at some point, it begins to seem ridiculous.” John McCormack of the Weekly Standard ripostes: “I suppose you can oppose sexual assault, conspiracy theories, lying, adultery, mocking American POWs, sanitizing dictators & white supremacists, and still be pro-Trump. But at some point, it begins to seem ridiculous.” This perfect distillation of the fight on the Right is the subject of maybe the best podcast we’ve ever done. Give a listen.

    …except Hume is dealing with facts of governance and that’s what the election of Trump (and I was a #NeverTrumper) was, especially when his opponent was ….HRC…. and all the vile baggage she personally carried.

    Hume wins this one in a runaway.

    Hume = Donald Trump is enacting conservative policy.

    McCormack = Donald Trump is a bit of a lout.

    They are both right ….

    What is more important to conservatives the policy or the guy enacting the conservative policy?

    It warms my heart whenever John says “beautiful monthly mailbox in your magazine.” This was one of those times.

    What the President says is part of what the President does. What he says is a fact of governance. He says a lot of vulgar nonsense very often. So we have a President who, for the most part, should be ignored or parsed to the point of idiocy when he speaks. That is better than Hillary. But then so are most people.

    If there wouldn’t have been a bunch of investigations about Clinton activities during the campaign or her prior time in office, it’s not because there shouldn’t have been – so for me the Russia investigations are a wash. Also, I am much more concerned about FBI bias and interference than I am about Russia interference.

    I am also very skeptical that all of the other contenders would have gotten out of the Paris accord, or the Iran agreement.
