I mentioned yesterday that I’m spending the weekend reading a couple new releases that came out last week – Julie Kelly’s Disloyal Opposition: How the #NeverTrump Right Tried – and Failed — to Take Down the President and Kurt Schlichter’s The 21 Biggest Lies About Donald Trump (and you!).
Well, Saturday afternoon I plowed through Disloyal Opposition, which is columnist Julie Kelly’s first (but not last, I’m sure) book.
Kelly’s columns at American Greatness are always a must-read for me. I’ve linked to her writing frequently over the last several years. In fact, her column “The Swamp’s Swingline Stapler” even inspired a couple Dianny ‘Shop images.
Julie is clever writer, smart as a whip and has just the right amount of biting humor to drive a point home. And her book Disloyal Opposition is no exception.
Back in August of 2016, I compared the NeverTrump movement to those Japanese soldiers who were found living on remote Pacific islands twenty/thirty years after World War Two ended. Those guys had no idea the war was over and Japan lost.
The same was true of NeverTrump. Despite Donald Trump’s resounding primary victory, and despite his accepting the nomination in late July, NeverTrump continued on as if the primaries were still raging.
It’s been four years, and it seems these guys are still wandering around on that remote Pacific island. MORE HERE
