Mike Pence told Republicans to “come home” and vote for Donald Trump on election day.
“I want to submit to all of you, it’s time to reach out to all of our Republican and conservative friends and say with one voice: ‘It’s time to come home and elect Donald Trump as the next president of the United States.’”
Um, well, some of us would love to go home, but Donald Trump and his supporters burned down our home, or at least our wing of the home. And no, I’m not talking about the establishment wing, which has it’s own issues. Its shell might still be standing but it’s a crumbling mess, never mind the pretty curtains they hung. I’m talking about the wing of the party that honestly cares about principles, the constitution, and freedom. That part of the home is gone, and the way things stand now there’s no plan to rebuild it. As William Teach noted, they aren’t even making the smallest effort to reach out to us in any meaningful way.
But politicians still need to ask for our votes. I don’t mean by name, but asking groups for their votes. Trump and company have asked Bernie fans for their votes. Blacks. Democrats. Other groups. But, not conservatives, and not really Republicans. He’s said he didn’t need our votes.
So, this “come home” schtick has annoyed me more and more as the day wore on, politically. Perhaps Pence should come home and get back to his conservative roots. (Read More)
Telling us to come home, as if we’re just a bunch of spoiled kids who are mad at Mom and Dad because we aren’t getting our way is beyond insulting. Why would he think that a stupid little slogan like “come home” is any more convincing than all of the other stupid little Trump campaign slogans we’ve been hearing for months?
Not to mention that they probably want us to think we’d be coming home to a luxury apartment in one of Trump’s gilded towers, when in reality it would be some filthy little room in a fleabag hotel where gross men sexually assault women and are given a pass. If I wanted a home like that I’d be a Democrat.
One more thing: I don’t have time to do another post so I’ll just throw this in here at the end - did you hear how Team Trump and its cheerleaders at Breitbart colluded with Clinton-supporting progressive activists to get rid of Trump’s primary opponents? Yeah, that’s right. Breitbart and progressives worked hard to make sure the one guy that couldn’t beat Hillary Clinton got the nomination. But now they’ll blame the small minority of us who are #NeverTrump if he loses.
