One of Trump’s media surrogates appeared on FOX Business today to lavish praise on his glorious leader. Steve Cortes was asked by host Stuart Varney about the rumors that Oprah Winfrey may be considering a presidential run after her viral speech at Sunday’s Golden Globes.
Cortes used the opportunity to attack the members of the Democratic Party who could be viable candidates in 2020, all of whom would be vastly superior to the current ignoramus inhabiting 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Cortes singled out former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) calling them “tired, old, Washington swamp rats.”
Cortes then made the absurd statement that if Trump has three more years like his first, he could defeat a combined ticket of “Jesus and the Virgin Mary.” The blasphemous claim shows that conservative piety is a tool for corralling votes that is discarded on a whim.
The assertion that Trump’s first year was anything less than an utter failure is laughable in itself, but the sheer hyperbole behind the idea that Trump is such a strong candidate that he could defeat the Christian deity and his mother is a whole new level of delusion.
While Oprah Winfrey would certainly make a better president than the unstable xenophobe we have currently, it would be wise for Democrats to select someone with governing experience. When Trump finally leaves the White House, he will be leaving an unprecedented international mess in his wake. We need an expert to get in there, roll up their sleeves, and get to work.
