F U, McCarthy.

You would know your thesis is complete fiction if you had bothered to view some of the miles of video tape of Trump interviews going back to his 20's and 30's with him discussing running for President all those decades ago, some of which has even been shown on special History Channel Bios on Trump.

Or maybe you do know those things and are simply unable or unwilling to admit that the Trump of today is the same Trump of 30 and 40 years ago, and that Trump is a great man who was born to be a great President and was not "created" by any movement.

Trump created the movement by providing us a fearless leader who unapologeticly, unswervingly and nearly single-handedly took on ALL of our many enemies, including the crooked enemedia, the crooked pollsters, the crooked GOPe, the crooked Democrats, the crooked Clintons, the crooked Bushes, crooked Wall Street, crooked bankers, crooked Fortune 500, crooked silicon valley, crooked neo-cons, crooked oligarchs, crooked plutocrats, and all the rest of the crooks and the rigged system.

The only ones who supported Trump were we-the-people, and it was we-the-people lead by President-elect Donald J. Trump who took on the entire crooked world, and we won.

These guys at NR are pathetic. I finally got a semi-apology from Guy Benson on Twitter, who used to call me “professor” condescendingly.

I bet him that Trump would win and his payment was to use professor in a non-condescending way. He did not, but did somewhat admit I was right.

If you actually take the time to read ALL of Donald Trump’s books, you will find that his positions HAVE NOT CHANGED IN THIRTY YEARS! He only has gotten better on tactics during the election process, but, hey, that is what leaders do! :-)

Donald Trump changed the mind set and the political dynamics of the entire world - before he even was nominated.

Who would have though a Billionaire could and would speak truth to power.

Guess it really helps to have a lot power of your own when you decide to start speaking truth to power.

Katie Pavlich is just as bad.

I used to like McCarthy, I don’t have much respect left for him.

There was a synergy here. It was part the populist resistance and part Trump’s intuitive assessment of the situation powered by God Himself.

NR remains clueless.

I agree. Trump didn’t create the movement.

But National Review, the question is why didn’t you understand the movement and become part of it rather than go against it?

McCarthy is full of $hit and full of himself.

He’s been an outspoken apologist for his buddy and former colleague, FBI Mis-Director James “Jellyfish” Comey.

Don’t waste time reading his obnoxious drivel.

Oops! My bad. I’ve been listening to too much NPR, for the Schadenfreude.

As for NR, this columnist and Rich Lowry (guest on Fox News) seem to be getting on the Trump Train.

The use of the term populist as it applies to Trump bothers me a great deal. “Populist” has been a pejorative term used to refer to politicians who use popular issues to appeal to voters, while not actually believing in those issues themselves; witness the behavior of most Republican and Democrat politicians over the last 30 years or so. I’m convinced that Trump is not a populist in the normal use of the word, but that he actually believes in the issues that helped him win. Apparently, a significant number of Americans agree.

Well, the rest of this nonsense notwithstanding, this movement IS bigger than Trump and Trump would be the first to say that. He knows that what he is doing is tapping into a movement already existing in the hearts of the American People just the way he “taps” when negotiating a deal.

Trump is God’s man of the hour to energize the American People to regain THEIR freedom and reinstate THEIR Constitution over the feds.

Well, it is the first step. Find some shred of reality and try to reel yourself in...

Trump earned this on his own. His shoe leather. His dime. His work with the people.

He is the colossus we need to pull back the pieces of this country that are scattering to world interests’ hands.

McCarthy can blow.

That was the word I was trying to remember;)

Synergy is the creation of a whole that is greater than the simple sum of its parts. The term synergy comes from the Attic Greek

Defund NPR, there is no need for it today.

Close down Dept of Education, Energy, and make EPA an advisory body. Cut funding to HHS by half.

There are lots of savings available to President Trump if he will just make it happen.
