The Madness of the NeverTrump Bunch

For the record, I'm not a fan of Trump.   Given that, the fact remains that he is not Hillary--who will never be President!!   Some very good things have happened due to The Donald, including reversal of a number of harmful Obozo E.O.'s, Gorsuch, and a very fruitful discussion of "what IS the U.S. healthcare policy?"

But Nooo Yaaawk values?  Kushner and Ivanka?  Sorry--we didn't elect them, nor those "values."

That being said, we now find the NeverTrump Sykes to have run his toy train off the cliff.

...Not long ago, conservatives would have been horrified at wholesale violations of the norms and traditions of our political system, and would have been appalled by a president who showed overt contempt for the separation of powers.

But this week, as if on cue, most of the conservative media fell into line, celebrating President Trump’s abrupt dismissal of the F.B.I. director, James Comey, and dismissing the fact that Mr. Comey was leading an investigation into the Trump campaign and its ties to Russia....

Are you serious, Charlie?

Since when is canning a Presidential appointee a "violation of ....norms and traditions" and a "violation of separation of powers"?  Do you need Constitution 101 remedial--where you'll find that the FBI is not part of the Congressional nor Judicial branches?

Get off your high horse, Charlie.  There's a lot to be said for overturning the fat applecarts and shoving the pigs away from the trough of D.C.  "Constitutional Crisis!!!!!!" is not one of them.
