A lot of people have questioned the appeal of Donald Trump. For people on the right, we don’t understand why some support Trump over proven conservatives like Ted Cruz and Scott Walker. But that’s a political and principled point. On the cultural front it’s a whole other matter and I totally get it.
The rest of the world believes Trump’s appealing to Americans because he’s honest and blunt. William Baldwin said that to HuffPo (yes, from THAT Baldwin family), and most people missed this a little while back, but Bill Burr had similar things to say…
No one would work with him. The Republicans and the Democrats would be babies and they would pout. Because they are all bought and owned, and it’s like, why is this guy free? He gets to say whatever he wants.
I mean, I have enjoyed the hell out of him, all the stuff that he’s been saying. I hope more politicans will at least just say what they were thinking.
I love when they were going after all this sexist stuff he said on Twitter about women, you said this you said that. He was like, “nahh I said that about Rosie O’Donnell.”
And they laughed, but then they said, “No no no, you definitely said it about other women.”
And he said, “Eh, you’re probably right.” And it was just over, that’s all you have to do…
And I get that. People have been constrained by the shackles of political correctness for so long that many just want to throw them off. I get it. Donald says some things out loud that are often only whispered in dark comedy clubs or at the family dinner table. Sometimes he’s right, sometimes he’s wrong.
Here’s the rub though…the people saying things like Burr and Baldwin? They also say that they would never vote for Trump. So what does that tell you? Just throwing that out there.
