My latest column is up at Right Wing News!
Here is an excerpt:
EVERYONE has been talking about Donald Trump lately. It seems that almost the entirety of election coverage has either been about the latest thing that Donald Trump said, or the media asking other candidates to react to the latest thing that Donald Trump said.
But here’s the thing: regardless of how loudly or boldly Donald Trump is advocating for certain conservative issues, he would make a horrible president. Just the fact that he is such an egotistical hothead makes him a bad pick, but when you look at what the Democrats, particularly President Obama and those in his administration (oftentimes in collusion with Republican leadership in Congress) have done to Constitutional separation of powers, Donald Trump is probably the LAST person we need in the White House. He likes to throw his weight around, he insists on getting his way…kind of like Barack Obama does when Congress opposes him on certain issues. Trump doesn’t seem like the kind of person who will act within the law to get things done – if he wants something done, he’ll get it done, and if he has the power of the Presidency behind him, well, the law be damned. President Obama set the precedent, and we can’t afford to allow that to continue.
The Republican field is comprised of somewhere around one hundred and twenty-seven candidates. It’s crowded on that stage, but the only real draw for Donald Trump that separates him from the rest of the pack is that he yells loudly and has obnoxious hair. The press is only obsessed with him because they know that, eventually, he’s going to put his foot in his mouth. They watch him and talk about him constantly and ask other candidates for their opinion on his remarks for one and only one reason: they know that the Trump train will wreck, and they want to get it on film when it happens.
