Hoist with his own petard is a phrase taken from Shakespeare and means someone destroyed himself with a weapon (a petard, that is, small bomb) intended for another. President Trump has hoisted the #NeverTrumpers on theirs and is about to do the same thing to the now irremediably lunatic Democrats.
Christopher Bedard has done a brilliant job describing the downfall of the #NeverTrump scribblers. Its worth reading it all, but here are some highlights:
The Never Trumpers say they dont recognize a Republican Party where the core tenets are neither free trade nor foreign democracy promotion. But maybe they just didnt know their voters by sight, because the only party that has truly departed recognition is Never Trump.
Each week brings this movement a new and bizarre position: Opposing tax cuts, supporting Obamacare; wishing North Korean talks ill, wishing Democratic investigators well; dreaming of European political meddling, pining for American political comeuppance. [snip]

The Breaking Of The Never Trump Mind
Hoist with his own petard.
This needs the photo of the guy straddling the soaring rocket.
Uniparty. Take positions but never resolve them.
The Democrats are very good at this too. They’ve been “fighting” for the poor for 60 years, but the poor haven’t seen anything but more poverty and dependence.

The clown show is international. Emmanuel Macron's communications director Sylvain Fort is resigning - that'd be the guy who thought it was smart to have Macron tell the people whose taxes he just raised that the money was going to African development programs. If anyone is most responsible for the Yellow Vest insurgency it's he.
I mention him because this is what an autocratic, ideology-sodden party looks like when not only its principals but its staffers are completely out of touch with the constituents. Our own elites are precisely the same. "Nobody in Washington wants The Wall", bleated one of them last week. And after all, it is what they want, not what the people want, that matters.
The problem the Republican side of the Uniparty has is that their base knows well what they are doing or not doing, and are angry and frustrated by it. The Democrat side of the Uniparty has no problems, their base is as oblivious as always as to what they have been and are up to, and as always blame the Republicans for all the things they don’t like that the Democrats have always been doing, and now finally they are halfway right!

Thanks. That’s the idea. Go to bed...we should be sleeping instead of FRping.
