This is one of my favorite examples of the hypocrisy of our politics. It just goes to show that the tea party was never about stopping the immoral fiscal irresistibility of those terrible tax-and-spend Democrats. It was just another strategy to gin up the hatred of one tribe for another. Donald Trump found a whole new set of hate buttons to push and won the admiration and loyalty of the GOP establishment for his ingenuity. Is it any wonder why a plurality of voters in this country prefers to identify as independents? Me included.
