How two old-school Washington insider
became the cool kids of Trumpism

Washington Post, by Ben Terris

The day after a tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women went public in October, Matt Schlapp, the chairman of the American Conservative Union, appeared on Fox News to defend him. A minute after his segment ended, his wife and fellow pundit, Mercedes, called to say it might be time to take a break from television. Matt had done a fine enough job. He looked great — white teeth, whiter hair, purple tie, comfy physique of a lobbyist who enjoys a good happy hour. He had signaled his continued support for the GOP nominee while also denouncing as “repugnant” his

This is kind of fun. I like both of the Schlaps a lot.

The article is inaccurate from the first sentence. FTA: "The day after a tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women went public in October..."

That is inaccurate. "You can grab them by the...they let you do it." That´s not bragging about sexually assaulting women. It´s a description of what certain women who orbit the rich and famous will allow, if not invite.

#1, have to inject this since you like Mercedes better. The idea that she evidently said they have "to think about their five daughters" before continuing to support Trump after that Bush audiotape came out is kinda humorous. Matt and Mercedes work in a political arena on a daily basis where filth, adultery, corruption, and unbridled greed are the norm. Gimme a break.

It is nice article and beautiful family, of course. But I have read comments from Washington Post - we are very far from cleaning the swamp. These snowflakes, who forgave everything to Obama and Clinton, have the nerve talking about Trnmp´s amorality! It is so pitty, when brainwashed people start to share their opinion in public. I do not know what can we do with them. On personal level it´s easy - just ignore them. But they are almost half the country, and they will never give up, no matter how we try to convince them. The same way it was in Soviet Union, when people were killed for nothing, but in front of the killing squad they were shouting: "Long live comrad Stalin!". And Stalin signed the order to kill them, and they knew it. Hopeless.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, Class of ’69, returned to Wellesley College yesterday and told the new graduates with a straight face, “You are graduating at a time when there is a full-fledged assault on truth and reason.” Folks, you can’t make this stuff up. Hillary Clinton, lecturing the youth of America about the dangers of lying, and pointing the finger … at somebody else. She accused President Trump of proposing a budget that was a “lie. Let’s call it what it is. It’s a con.” Like, say, the Clinton Foundation? “They don’t even try to hide it. Why does all this matter? It matters

A federal judge who donated nearly a quarter of a million dollars to President Obama’s campaign has threatened to hold undercover reporter and pro-life activist David Daleiden in contempt of court after his organization released video footage of Planned Parenthood employees admitting that abortion involves killing a baby. In the video released Thursday, Planned Parenthood Michigan Medical Director Dr. Lisa Harris says that pro-abortion activists know abortion is violent and kills babies, but that shouldn’t stop them. “Given that we might actually both agree that there’s violence in here, ask me why I come to work everyday,” she said in the footage

A shocking new video has just been released by the Center for Medical Progress, the undercover investigative group that in 2015 released videos showing that Planned Parenthood affiliates have profited from selling the body parts of aborted babies.(Snip for video) This latest video is a preview of footage that CMP investigators gathered at the 2014 and 2015 National Abortion Federation conventions, attended by hundreds of members of the abortion industry each year.

A few respectful thoughts on Special Prosecutors. First of all, now that we know we can have Special Prosecutors without there being any meaningful evidence of a crime, or in fact any evidence at all of a crime besides gossip and endless political campaigning, let’s have a Special Prosecutor for Maxine Waters. She’s the screaming voice of the most anti-Trump, shrillest slice of the Democrat party. She’s been a civil servant all of her life, earning a modest wage. Somehow, she has a $4.5 million dollar home and other property here in L.A. True, there’s no evidence so far that’s she’s

Reader Freda Barry objects to my view that President Trump’s errant words and deeds are testing the faith of his followers. She writes: “No, supporters of President Trump are not losing faith. We are, however, totally dismayed by the unrelenting attacks on our president from the corrupt media! “Please don’t give up on us or the president we VOTED into office. We still pray that he will NOT give up, even under continuous assault.” Her plea is obviously heartfelt, and others also invoked prayer in delivering similar messages. But while I haven’t given up on Trump, I am concerned about the state

Aides to President Trump reportedly organized an “intervention” recently in an attempt to get their boss to curb his infamous tweetstorms. Trump’s staff had been worried about some of the inaccurate claims he made on Twitter and held the Twitter-vention in the past few weeks as The White House has come under intense scrutiny, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday night. Most notably, the staff was worried about the accusation Trump made in March that former President Obama had wiretapped Trump Tower during the 2016 presidential election, the Journal said. “Is it legal for a sitting President to be ‘wire tapping’ a race

Here´s a little fun for your Friday. Today former Congressman and soon to be ex-husband Anthony Weiner pleaded guilty in federal court to texting explicit images to a 15-year-old girl. He faces up to 27 months in prison. It was just a few short years ago that the left and their friends in the media defended Weiner against allegations he was preying on young girls and viciously attacked Andrew Breitbart for his reporting on the issue. Enjoy: (Snip for Breitbart video) Andrew was right and today further proves it.

The appointment of former FBI Director Robert Mueller as the special counsel overseeing the Russia probe has muted, at least a bit, and at least for now, the clamorous calls from the left to impeach President Trump. Nonetheless, millions of liberals throughout the country are surely still salivating over the prospect of impeaching our scandal-plagued president. Sorry to disappoint you, but it´s almost certainly not going to happen. To remove Trump from office via impeachment, you need a two-thirds majority of the Senate. Even if all 48 Democrats and Democratic-aligned independents voted in lockstep to impeach, you´d still need 19 Republican senators

Just six years ago, Anthony Weiner seemed to have it all: a career as a veteran congressman, a highly regarded wife and an excellent chance to be elected mayor of New York. Then he lost it all — and more. He’s now too pathetic to even be a laughingstock: a confessed felon who has to register as a sex offender, headed for divorce and prison. It’s a classic tragedy: a man of considerable talent brought low by his own flaws. As he tearfully admitted Friday in Manhattan Federal Court, he has no one to blame but himself and his “destructive impulses.” Weiner pleaded guilty

The man can´t help himself. I´m speaking of course of our president, Donald Trump, whose talents at marketing and publicity brought him wealth and fame and, at the age of 70, the highest political office in the nation. Aggressive, flamboyant, unpredictable, and combative, Trump´s impulsivity has benefited him as a businessman and as a candidate, but not as a president. His desire to convey an image of speed and determination has resulted in executive orders stopped by judicial intervention and a legislature that is quarrelsome and confused. His popping off on Twitter creates scandals that should not otherwise exist, and

When a man drove his car into a crowd of pedestrians in Times Square, many minds turned immediately to terrorism, which, given the recent history of vehicular attacks — Berlin, Nice, Stockholm, Westminster, Ohio State University, all in the past two years — was not unreasonable. But the driver may simply have been drunk. He has twice been convicted of drunk driving and does not appear to be a malefactor of the “Allahu akbar!” variety.

Many mistaken beliefs left over from the 1960s are embedded in mainstream, which is to say liberal, American culture. As an earnest young lefty I was taught that generals like war, that businessmen like free markets, that Christians think everyone else is going to hell, and that Republicans are conservative ideologues. None of these statements is true. Roger Ailes, for instance, was a Republican but he wasn´t an ideologue. Of course he believed certain things to be true. He believed that over the last two generations left-wingers had swept the field culturally and were now safely in control of every influential

Hillary Clinton suggested her campaign rival President Trump will get impeached, in sharp remarks in a commencement address Friday where she brought up ´obstruction of justice´ and warned of the steps to authoritarianism. Speaking to gowned graduates at the school where she addressed students in 1969, Clinton referenced the resignation of President Richard Nixon and a House committee´s impeachment investigation – but it was clear to graduating students what she was really talking about. ´We were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice,´ the

Guilt by association. That’s what Andrea Mitchell believes. Despite the fact that Donald Trump is on another continent, the Andrea Mitchell Reports anchor thinks that the assault against a journalist by a Montana congressional candidate is an “extension” of the President. Talking about Greg Gianforte’s attack on Guardian reporter Ben Jacobs, the MSNBC host connected, “There is so much hostility, frankly, to the press, a lot of it generated by the Donald Trump rallies.” Mitchell declared, “And a lot of my colleagues faced the blowback from that. So, this is kind of an extension of that.” MSNBC has pretty much

Republican Greg Gianforte won Thursday’s special election for the U.S. House in Montana, defeating Democratic challenger Rob Quist despite being charged with misdemeanor assault the day before. Gianforte will now take over former Navy SEAL Ryan Zinke’s House seat. Zinke vacated the seat when he accepted the post of Secretary of the Interior in President Donald Trump’s Cabinet. The election results — with Gianforte winning over 50% of the vote and leading by a seven-point margin — were a major blow to Democrats’ anti-Trump efforts, and to the media’s expectations, after Gianforte had allegedly “body-slammed” a reporter before his final

THE BIG IDEA: Greg Gianforte admitted to attacking a reporter and apologized during his victory speech last night, as he kept Montana’s sole House seat in Republican hands. Now he and his party’s leaders are trying to move on. On the eve of the special election, the wealthy technology entrepreneur flipped out when the Guardian’s Ben Jacobs asked him about the CBO’s score of the health care bill. He now faces misdemeanor assault charges for reportedly throwing Jacobs to the ground and breaking his glasses. “I made a mistake,” the congressman-elect said at his party in Bozeman. “Not in our minds!” yelled

Bozeman, Montana - Republican Greg Gianforte has won the special election for Montana´s open US House seat, CNN projects, defeating Democrat Rob Quist and capping off a whirlwind final 36 hours of the campaign that saw Gianforte being charged for allegedly assaulting a reporter. With 83% of precincts reporting, Gianforte had 171,149 votes -- or 50.3% of the vote, compared to Quist who has 149,138 votes, 43.9% of the vote, according to Edison Research. Gianforte was considered the favorite heading into Thursday´s election to fill the seat once held by Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, but that was before he allegedly "body-slammed" a

Do you want to hear a truly insane conspiracy theory? It’s a theory with almost as many moving parts as LBJ’s alleged mob hit on John F. Kennedy. Multiple agencies involving hundreds of separate government actors are working together, you see, to deceive the American people, advance false narratives, and bring down a president. It’s the world’s greatest con, and Sean Hannity, Newt Gingrich, and Geraldo Rivera are the only ones brave enough to ask the right questions. They’re the only ones bold enough to confront the fake-news media, to do the hard work of investigative journalism, and bring the
