……In an opinion piece for The Washington Post, Hugh Hewitt admonished Republicans to vote Republican, not because Trump and the GOP are delivering on their promises, but because even though the GOP is no longer the party of Reagan, it is still a “party of one with a fervent following in the tens of Millions.”
Yep. Hugh Hewitt believes you should vote Republican because Trump has a lot of Twitter followers.
Hewitt admits that Trump is a “giant wrecking ball on assumptions, standards, unwritten rules, and codes of conduct,” but since there have been a “number of significant accomplishments — Supreme Court appointments, rebuilding the military, and a “cooking economy” — we should ignore Trump’s lies, broken promises, unconstitutional policies, etc. (my words) and “return Republican legislative majorities (to Washington) that have figured out how to work with this most unusual president.”
What a nice, politically correct way of saying that the GOP has abandoned conservatism and has caved to Trump’s Obama 3.0 agenda.
In the end of his piece, Hewitt admonishes voters to vote Republican, “even if you loathe the president.” As a conservative sell-out in the Age of Trump, this is all Hewitt and other so-called conservatives can come up as a reason to vote Republican.
I think I’ll pass . . . on Trump AND Hugh Hewitt.
