Fox Guest: Fox News Should ‘Own Up To The Fact’ That GOP Promotes Trump’s ‘Douchebaggery’ (VIDEO)

Donald Trump has recently proved himself to be the perfect candidate for Fox News’ “true believers”: openly racist and xenophobic, full of hate and willing to go so far as to attack his fellow G-O-People’s POW status in an effort to discredit them. Despite Trump’s wide appeal among the Stupid Part of America, one Fox News guest was brave enough to be clear that it’s about time conservatives give up on the rather insane candidate’s “douchebaggery.”

Recently, Trump has been winning the hearts and “minds” of conservatives nationwide with his hateful rhetoric. In announcing his candidacy for the presidency, Trump let conservatives know a number of things: He’s “really rich;” almost all Mexicans are “rapists” who can build their own damn wall to keep themselves out of the U.S.,  his lobbyists are incredibly effective; and he’s a “nice guy.”

“The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems,” Trump, who thinks the President was born in Kenya, said as he made his announcement. “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

Lately, Trump has been polling well above his compatriots in the GOP — largely because of his horrific bigotry. Since May, Trump has been swiftly gaining popularity among conservatives. The Washington Post reported last week:

“Nearly six in 10 — 57 percent — Republicans now have a favorable view of Trump, compared to 40 percent who have an unfavorable one. That marks a complete reversal from a late-May Post-ABC poll, in which 65 percent of Republicans saw Trump unfavorably.

“Trump continues to be unpopular among the public at large, with negative marks outpacing positive ones 61-33. ‘Strongly unfavorable’ views outnumber strongly positive ratings by a 3-1 ratio.

“But Trump’s image has improved since his campaign launch; in May, just 16 percent had a favorable view of him, while 71 percent were unfavorable — by far the worst rating among a slew of candidates in that poll.”

“It looks like Tea Party voters are really responding to Trump’s aggressive illegal immigrant message,” Monmouth University Polling Institute director Patrick Murray explained.

But the Right’s love affair with the racist, xenophobic sociopath may end, Fox guest Daniel Halper said, because of his attack on “the war heroness” of John McCain for the 5 1/2 years he spent as a Prisoner of War in North Korea.

“He was a war hero because he was captured,” Trump said on Saturday. “I like people who weren’t captured.”

According to Halper, online editor for conservative misinformation factory the Weekly Standard, said this may have been the straw upon which the camel’s back was broken. “It’s probably the beginning of the end for Donald Trump,” he explained, pointing out that  “the questioning of war heroes” is unpopular among conservatives.

“I hoped that it was the beginning of the end when he first dipped his toe in the waters,” liberal Fox News contributor Jehmu Greene replied. “Because this is just a continuation of his douchebaggery and has been accepted for so long that finally they’ve come to their senses because, I guess, he has now finally crossed the line. But he crossed many lines quite some time ago.”

Halper attempted to move the conversation away from Trump, and onto liberal activists who shouted down longshot Democratic candidate Martin O’Malley after he included the phrase “Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter” in a speech (he has since apologized for failing to consider that, to many, “black lives” have yet to be included in “all lives”) — but Greene fought to stay on topic, calling Halper’s maneuver the “perfect line of distraction and deflection… when you have the person who is leading in the polls saying things about our military men and women that is so offensive and still not wanting to own up to the fact that in the Fox News poll he was at the top just last week.”

“What is going on in the Republican Party?” Greene added. “What does it take for you all to take your party back from the crazies that have had control of it for about seven years now?”

That’s a good question. It’s almost impossible for our nation to go a day without one of the people who have jammed themselves into the 2016 GOP clown car saying something horrific, promising to bomb someone, or vowing to deny Americans of their civil rights. Frankly, conservatives — the non-insane variety (They exist… promise) — might have some good ideas. The problem is that they don’t present any. The right-wing base in America is so hateful, so polarized, that ideas are not the key to winning: bigotry sells in Conservative America.

It’s time that the Right purges itself of the crazies, casts them out so that the few adults in their party can speak their minds. It’s time for politicians who might be otherwise sane to stop pandering to the extremist elements on their side of the field. It’s time for a radical shift in American politics — one in which we no longer debate whether or not a group of people deserves the same rights as everyone else, seriously discuss merging church and state into one entity, or cater to racists. If conservatives just… stop… it is almost certain that they will lose a few elections — but they could emerge victorious a few election cycles down the road. You know, if they stop pandering to the Tin-Foil- Hats, White-Pointy-Hoods, and Christofascists in the nation.
