“Never Trump” Kafer Considers Eating Out of the Trump Dumpster

(Okie dokie then – Promoted by Colorado Pols)

A once brave “Never Trump” conservative, who couldn’t hold her nose and vote for Trump, is caving.

That’s Denver Post columnist Krista Kafer. As a talk radio host, she took endless abuse for her stance against Trump, and KNUS eventually dumped her.

Now, she’s saying she’s upset with Democrats and “looking at voting for Trump.”

“The deal is, that, yeah, [voting for Trump] a little like eating out of the dumpster, but if you’re that hungry, you’re going to do it,” said Kafer on Colorado Public Television’s weekly politics show, Colorado Inside Out. (on channel 12)

I’m a fan of dumpster diving. Great stuff to be found, including good food.

But if Kafer eats out of the Trump dumpster, not only will she get incredibly ill and possibly die, but she’s leading conservatives into a long stretch of political starvation.

Swing Voters in Colorado hate Trump, and Republicans can’t win without them. If you’re a practical Republican, you have to avoid the Trump dumpster–because the numbers don’t work for Republicans. Ask failed GOP congressional candidate Mike Coffman if he agrees.

    I guess the real question is, if you're hungry, why do you think the only option is to eat racist asshole?

      One benefit of the Trump regime is that we get to see which Republicans decide to stain & stink themselves with Trumpism. 

      In the post-Trump years, they won't be able to wash it off.

      You probably gotta’ be willing to dig through tons of empty tubes of skin bronzer and hair gel, Propecia bottles, Depends, hair spray cans, badly perfumed love letters from David Duke and Cory and Kim Jong-un, and 1980’s porn magazines, before you ever reach any of those sought after KFC wing scraps, or the melted cheese and special sauce remnants on a single Big Mac wrapper???? . . .

    I guess my questions would be

    * If she avoided the meal the first time, what could possibly make it more appealing now? 

    * If she is hungry and has a choice between NY dumpster trash and other forms of cuisine, will she still go dumpster diving? 

    * And finally, does she expect a large crowd at her dumpster?

    On the topic of collaboration and Vichy Republicans:

    …in 2016, [Ken Burns] coined the term “Vichy Republican.” With the phrase, Mr. Burns pointed an accusing finger at those politicians who, during their party’s presidential primaries, decided to work with rather than condemn then-candidate Donald Trump.

    Three years later, Mr. Burns’s phrase seems prescient. With few exceptions, Republican lawmakers have accepted, if not always applauded, the gamut of morally disastrous and legally dubious acts pursued by their president. Even following the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, Ohio, Republicans have mostly refused to denounce or distance themselves from the president’s racist utterances and tweets.

    Some of these choices are easy to condemn outright, but the moral wisdom or failure of others will only become apparent only in the rear view mirror of history. Some know they are making a deal with the devil — but others, feeling hemmed in, surely believe they are making the best of a bad situation.

    That’s not to let them off the hook, of course. Especially in the wake of events in El Paso and Dayton, these lawmakers have never been as free as they are now. As they consider their choices, they might keep in mind Mr. Burrin’s words, written a half-century after the war, about the costs of certain choices made under Vichy France: “The occupation inflicted wounds not so much physical as moral and political — wounds that have still not fully healed.”
