But ban he must because the newspaper now is officially opposed to allowing voters to elect him president (through the Electoral College, of course).
In a bizarre editorial posted online on Wednesday, the Post said:
THE UNTHINKABLE is starting to look like the inevitable: Absent an extraordinary effort from people who understand the menace he represents, Donald Trump is likely to be the presidential nominee of the Republican Party. At this stage, even an extraordinary effort might fall short. But history will not look kindly on GOP leaders who fail to do everything in their power to prevent a bullying demagogue from becoming their standard-bearer.
A few days ago we criticized Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus for his assertion that a Trump victory in November would silence the doubters. “Winning is the antidote to a lot of things,” Mr. Priebus had said. We argued that winning would not erase the bigotry and ugliness of Mr. Trump’s campaign, nor remove the dangers of a Trump presidency. On Wednesday, the GOP chairman, perhaps wanting to show that he can match Mr. Trump in eloquence, responded: “That is the stupidest editorial that I have ever seen.”
So it falls to other leaders to decide if their party will stand for anything other than winning. A political party, after all, isn’t meant to be merely a collection of consultants, lobbyists and functionaries angling for jobs. It is supposed to have principles: in the Republican case, at least as we have always understood it, to include a commitment to efficient government, free markets and open debate.Who the hell are Jeff Bezos and the Washongton Post editorial board to order Republicans about like they are pawns?
The Post employs a choir of some of the most smug and elitist conservatives in the country, in particular Charles Krauthammer, Kathleen Parker, Jennifer Rubin, and George Will. They have railed against Trump for the past year and guess what? He is kicking it. They do not give any reasoned arguments against him, just intemperate name-calling. Krauthammer called him a rodeo clown, and Will called him a stain.
The Pope cannot stop him, nor can the Washington Post.
Democrats worry that Trump will defeat Hillary and send her to jail for divulging national secrets.
I get that he is not a neo-con or paleo-con, but kick back and enjoy the show. Donald Trump is about to knock the Washington Post down a peg or two.
Ask the Pope how that works.
