Keep your word

Politico has a story about a group of “anti-Trump Republicans” who are going to be buying air time to run an ad urging Trump to drop out of the race.

The ad is titled “Keep Your Word.”

You see, back in October of last year, Trump pointed out in an interview that he would drop out of the primaries if he began dropping in the polls.

This faction of Team Eeyore want Donald to “keep his word” and drop out because polls show him losing to Hillary in November.

First of all, in October, Trump was talking about whether or not to stay in the primary race for the nomination.

He won the nomination.

But that’s beside the point.

Let’s talk about “keep your word,” shall we?

When you make a pledge to support the eventual party nominee, then you don’t.

Is that an example of “keep your word?”

I know. I know. They’re only following their “conscience.”

It’s worth noting that the people behind this ad are the same people who wanted the delegates to have the right not to “keep their word” at the GOP Convention.

Yup. The “free the delegates” people.

Remember them? They wanted delegates to be free to “vote their conscience.” In other words, not keep their word to support the candidate they were sent to the convention to support.

Well, ain’t that a kick in the head?!

This is like having someone scold you for swearing by saying, “How many f*cking times do I have to f*cking tell you to not f*cking swear?!”

I’m sorry. But the people who advocated for others not to keep their word when it comes to Trump, have one hell of a lot of nerve to now demand Trump “keeps his word” to drop out of the primaries if his poll numbers plummet.

The primaries are over! Hello!

[Which, just goes to show that I was right about Team Eeyore. They’re like the Japanese soldiers found on deserted islands who think the war is still going on.]

Hey, “Keep Your Word” folks. Let me put this in language you will understand.

Sure, Donald Trump might have told NBC in October that he would drop out of the primaries if he sank in the polls. But having won primaries, he had a crisis of conscience. And now, his conscience is telling him he must follow his conscience, and so, in good conscience, he must see the campaign through to election day.

I’m sure you’d all agree that it is a-okay not to “keep your word” if you are following your conscience.

    The pledge was specifically created in hopes to keep Donald Trump from running third-party when most of the punditry class and the political consultants believed that Trump would be eliminated. The pledge wasn’t created with Cruz, Rubio, Bush, or anyone else in mind. It was for Trump. Now that Trump has won the nomination, a lot of these “pledges” are backing out of something they forced Trump to do.

    That was the purpose of the pledge. They never would have dreamed Trump would have won the nomination. Now that he has, they’re ready to drop the pledge like a bag of trash.

    What did everyone expect? This is the “stupid party” after all. They backed out of Obamacare, spending cuts, executive amnesty, gay marriage, transgender bathrooms, and the like. They haven’t conserved anything? They’ve folded on everything. How would this “pledge” be any different.

      Yeah. It was just for Trump. That is what makes it especially galling. Those assholes made such a big deal about it, then when it came time for them to do what they demanded from Trump, they couldn’t be bothered. Assholes every one.

    So that is what the hubub is about. I occasionally peek at the blogs of people who used to consider me their friend before they went all #NeverTrump just to see if they regained any semblance of sanity yet and what I saw recently about this push to have Trump DROP OUT at this late date was perplexing to me, and it still is but now, thanks to you, I know what their idiotic bleatings this time around are about. I guess there is just no climbing out of the rabbit hole for some people. F*ckin’ lunatics.
