Many of his critics need to wipe the smug off their faces.
He proved them wrong. Again.
Conservatives may be forgiven for attacking and opposing Trump in the Republican nomination process.
But National Review and others threw away their Reagan Fan Club cards last fall.
The Supreme Court Is Not a Sufficient Reason to Vote for TrumpThat was not a headline in Daily Kos or Huffington Post or Salon or Vox or even the Washington Post.
That was National Review!
From the story:
Weighed in balance, Donald Trump could be more of a threat to the Constitution than a Hillary Clinton-appointed Supreme Court liberal majority.What?
The prospect of a Supreme Court defined by Hillary Clinton is grim, and conservatives are right to be concerned. But while the Supreme Court may be the last compelling reason to vote for Donald Trump, it’s hardly a sufficient reason to vote for him.
Start with the short-term.
The immediate cause of the Supreme Court frenzy is the vacancy left by Antonin Scalia’s death, which Hillary Clinton would surely fill with a staunchly liberal justice, shifting the center-of-gravity of the Court leftward. This would, indeed, be a loss. And Trump might, indeed, appoint someone better. Might. His list of potential Supreme Court nominees, released under duress in May, is promising, if hardly foolproof. But it is also provisional.Those are the words of a magazine gone bonkers -- nuts -- crazy.
In other words, liberal.
Thank God 63 million of us ignored National Review and elected Trump and kept the Supreme Court conservative.
Three words: Justice Sally Yates.
The magazine was willing allow liberals to control the court for the next thirty years just to thwart Trump -- and regain control of a defeated party in tatters.
By the way, what happened to that "reality show" announcement we were promised, New York magazine?
Go back to who, what, where and when!
Oh and PJ Media has "5 Things You Should Know About Supreme Court Nominee Neil Gorsuch."
Details, details, details, details, details.
You like details? OK, F.H. Buckley has a great rundown on Gorsuch, as well.
Please read "Trump the Press," in which I skewer media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
It covers the nomination process only. The general election is covered in a sequel, "Trump the Establishment," which will be published in paperback on February 7.
