I want to make it clear right away, because there are some on the right who act like triggered snowflakes when a celebrity says a thing. I couldn’t give less of a damn that an ignorant celebrity says something ignorant. My eye rolling and snark should never be misconstrued as outrage, because at best…I nothing them. But it’s still fun to blog about, just because so many have become insufferable douchelords. There are exceptions (see Matthew McConaughey Tells Hollywood to Suck It Up, Trump is President and U2’s Bono: Three Questions ALL Anti-Trump Protesters Should Ask Themselves), but not many.
The new thing? Donald Trump won’t last four years. TMZ caught up with Marco Rubio to get his thoughts…
“I think it’s alright to disagree on things. We gotta figure out things we can work together on. In the end, I’m not going anywhere, the other people aren’t going anywhere — we’re gonna be in America together.”
“We might as well make it work. And on the things we disagree on, we can have a debate about them. But on things we can kind of make progress on, we should try. That’s what I’m gonna try to do. I hope it works.”
And as we’ve said before, it’s not that people like Trump as much as they hate the left. If the left would stop acting like…well, themselves, they’d be surprised.
Yet there’s so much kerfuffle over Trump and anything he says (or tweets), it’s really hard for the nation to “come together.” I also love how the media suddenly thinks the country is “divided.” Please note the media issues this “we’re divided” memorandum after every Republican victory, not so much after a Democrat. Channeling my inner Ted Cruz voice, “I’d like to note” America has been “divided” on some type of party line, going back to our very founding. Thousands of Americans were deep loyalists to the British Crown, who didn’t want to separate from Mother England. Fondness for crumpets, perhaps. One may even say the Revolutionary War was our first Civil War, as Americans fought other Americans. So this notion we’re newly divided because an orange coifed tycoon sits pretty in the White House? Poppycock.
Rubio is right, we do have to live with each other. But probably not happily. You’ve seen the other side. They’re whack jobs with resting scream face.
