New Yorker Magazine Facts Teller Columnist

> Washington......
>  This
>  is absolutely brilliant. A surprising article from the New
> Yorker
> Magazine. This magazine has always been a left wing
> apologizer so this
> article is even more amazing. Don't pass it up.
>  The author is the political correspondent for Bloomberg and
> wrote extensively about Obama even before he was
> nominated. "Who is Donald Trump?" The
> better question may be, "What is Donald
> Trump?"
>  The answer? A giant middle finger from average Americans to
> the political and media establishment.
>  Some Trump supporters are like the 60s white girls who
> dated black guys
>  just to annoy their parents. But most Trump supporters have
> simply had
> it with the Demo-socialists and the "Republicans In
> Name Only." They
> knew there wasn't a dime's worth of difference
> between Hillary Rodham
> and Jeb Bush, and only a few cents worth between Rodham and
> the other
> GOP candidates.
>  Ben Carson was not an "establishment"
> candidate, but the Clinton machine would pulverize Carson ;
> and the
> somewhat rebellious Ted Cruz will (justifiably so) would
> have been tied
> up with natural born citizen lawsuits (as might Marco
> Rubio). The Trump
> supporters figure they may as well have some fun tossing
> Molotov
> cocktails at Wall Street and Georgetown while they watch the
> nation
> collapse. Besides - lightning might strike, Trump might get
> elected, and
>  he might actually fix a few things. Stranger things have
> happened (the
> nation elected an [islamo-]Marxist in 2008 and Bruce Jenner
> now wears
> designer dresses.)
>  Millions of conservatives are justifiably
>  furious. They gave the Republicans control of the House in
> 2010 and
> control of the Senate in 2014, and have seen them govern no
> differently
> than Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. Yet those same voters are
> supposed to
> trust the GOP in 2016? Why?
>  Trump did not come from out of nowhere. His candidacy was
> created by the last six years of Republican failures.
>  No reasonable person can believe that any of the
> establishment
> candidates [dems or reps] would have slashed federal
> spending, rein in
> the Federal Reserve, cut burdensome business regulations,
> reform the tax
>  code, or eliminate useless federal departments (the
> Departments of
> Education, Housing and Urban Development, Energy, etc.).
> Even Ronald
> Reagan was unable to eliminate the Department of Education.
> (Of course,
> getting shot at tends to make a person less of a
> risk-taker.) No
> reasonable person can believe that any of the nation's
> major problems
> will be solved by Rodham as she is simply the third verse of
> Obama's
> waning swan song.
>  Many Americans, and especially Trump supporters, have had
> it with:
>  · Anyone named Bush
>  · Anyone named Clinton
>  · Anyone who's held political office
>  · Political correctness
>  · Illegal immigration
>  · Massive unemployment
>    Our out of control federal spending
>    Our National Debt that exceeds our GDP (Can you say
> Greece?)
>  · Phony "official" unemployment and inflation
> figures
>  · Welfare waste and fraud
>    Money being spent on Illegal immigrants
>  · People faking disabilities to go on the dole
>  · VA waiting lists
>  · TSA airport groping
>  · ObamaCare
>  · The Federal Reserve's money-printing schemes
>  · Wall Street crooks like Jon Corzine
>  · Michelle Obama's vacations
>  · Michelle Obama's food police
>  · Barack Obama's golf
>  · Barack Obama's arrogant and condescending lectures
>  · Barack Obama's criticism/hatred of America
>  · Valerie Jarrett
>  · " Holiday trees"
>    .Hollywood hypocrites
>  · Cop killers while Black Lives Matter
>  · Gun confiscation threats
>  · Stagnant wages
>  · Boys in girls' bathrooms
>  . Whiny, spoiled college students who can't even place
> the Civil War in the correct century... and that's just
> the short list.
>  Trump supporters believe that no Democrat wants to address
> these
> issues, and that few Republicans have the courage to address
> these
> issues. They know that  Trump is their way of saying,
> "Screw you,
> Hillary Rodham and all the Do Nothing Republicans!" The
> more the talking
>  head political pundits insult the Trump supporters, the

>  But America does not need a tune-up at the same old garage.
> It needs a

> she merely manages a garage her philandering husband
> abandoned. Trump is
>  also not a mechanic, but he knows where to find the best

>  "How dare they revolt!" the "elites"

>  Yes, Trump speaks
