Leading #NeverTrump ‘Expert’ Has Just Now Noticed the Democrats Are Crazy

Posted on | October 13, 2019 | Comments Off on Leading #NeverTrump ‘Expert’ Has Just Now Noticed the Democrats Are Crazy


It’s possible you have no idea who Tom Nichols is, but he is The Expert™ who wrote The Book™ about being The Expert™ and he is one of the #NeverTrump contingent frequently mocked by Ace of Spades.

Despite his exaggerated sense of his own importance, Tom Nichols is actually such a dime-a-dozen nobody that you can ignore him completely (as is my habit) and never really miss anything of value. Nevertheless, because he is an ex-Republican who hates Trump, The Expert™ Tom Nichols has access to media platforms that are usually off-limits to actual conservatives, and so at times he becomes impossible to ignore.

In USA Today, Nichols takes issue with his new Democrat allies:

When we watched CNN’s LGBTQ town hall for the Democratic candidates Thursday, we had very different reactions. This is the event, you remember, where former Rep. Beto O’Rourke of Texas said he’d punish religious institutions for refusing gay marriage, and where Sen. Kamala Harris of California started by informing us of her pronouns, and then host Chris Cuomo, after a mild and dopey joke, had to go on Twitter the next day and apologize for making light of it. This is where Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts fielded a question about traditional marriage with a sneering, smug insinuation that the only people who would ask her about that are men who can’t find a woman.
You thought it was great. You saw a ringing defense of LGBTQ rights and a reaffirmation of what Democrats stand for.
I saw it and thought: Are these people insane? Are they trying to lose the election? . . .

Yes, Mr. Nichols, the Democrats are insane, and if you hadn’t been so busy with whatever it is you’re so Expert™ about, maybe you would have noticed before Thursday night. But ignore me. I’m just some guy with a blog, and USA Today would never let me publish a column there.
