The New York Post has an Editorial Board.
That board, on this planet, in real life, not as a joke, for real, met, discussed, and deliberated on who to endorse to be the Republican nominee for President of the United States.
When they emerged, they reached a consensus on who that man should be — Donald Trump.
Yes, I’m serious.
No, this is not a practical joke.
No, I’m not mistaken.
Yes, it’s hard to believe, but I kid you not — the Post, at 10:36 p.m. on Thursday, proudly published their Trump endorsement.
The endorsement itself defies all logic and is so incredible that I am tempted to simply cut and paste the whole doggone thing for you to see. At times it actually reads like an intelligent critique on why this man should never, a day in his life, be given the nuclear codes.
Let me give you an example:
“But then there are those rookie mistakes.
“Start with policies that seem made on the fly.
“No, pulling US troops out of Japan and South Korea — and pushing both countries to go nuclear to defend themselves — is not remotely a good idea. American commitments may need rethinking — but careful rethinking.
“Yes, controlling the border is one of Washington’s fundamental duties — but “Build the Wall” is far too simplistic a policy for a nation of immigrants.”
Donald Trump tosses his notes as he speaks during a Suffolk County Republican Committee fundraising reception on Thursday.
No, I didn’t just write that myself.
Yes, I’m serious. Yeah…for real.
In their endorsement, the Post said Trump’s policies often “seem made on the fly” and called his thoughts on immigration and nuclear war “rookie mistakes.”
In other words, on the biggest issues of our time, he’s absolutely terrifying.
The endorsement then went on to say, “Trump’s language, too, has too often been amateurish, divisive — and downright coarse.”
Language, as you may know, is the words that come out of our mouths. The words that come out of our mouths, as you may know, do so because of thoughts in our brain.
In their endorsement, the Post, on purpose, in print — a cover story no less — admits Trump often speaks as a divisive, coarse, amateur.
The man will turn 70 years old this summer.
Do they expect he’s going to grow up between now and November? He is who he is.
This endorsement of a man, in spite of himself, for the most powerful position in the world, is a shameful reflection not on what makes America great, but what makes us dumb as hell.
I’d like to say I’ve never seen anything like this, but I have. A whopping 55% of Republican voters in New York say they’re going to vote for Trump.
The man has won states all over the country and has received millions and millions of votes.
It’s all so incredible, but it’s real — very real.
