When there were seventeen Republicans running to carry the GOPs standard against the Democrats, I supported Carly Fiorino. When Carly suspended her campaign, I shifted to Marco Rubio. When Rubio lost his home state of Florida and dropped out of the race, I supported Ted Cruz.
People kept asking me, what happens if Trump wins the nomination?
I shrugged off the question because I just did not believe the Donald would prevail.
But he has, and yesterday I received over a dozen emails asking if I will support Trump.
Yes I will.
My reasons are quite simple. I know what Hillary will do as POTUS. There are perhaps as many as three Supreme Court nominations for the next President. Hillary will appoint far left ideologues.
I have no idea who Donald will appoint, but I’m willing to throw the dice.
A Hillary presidency will be a continuation of Obama. Which means Obamacare grows into a single payer system. Which means that America continues her retreat as a major power on the world’s stage. Which means that Israel will continue to get shafted by an increasingly radical postmodern Democrat party. Which means that government will grow, taxes will increase, and the regulatory state will continue to swallow personal liberty in favor of the chimera of social justice, code for Marxism.
I would vote for anyone but the criminal Hillary or Bernie the Bolshevik.
There is also the Ivanka factor.
When Donald’s daughter married real estate developer Jared Kushner, she went through an Orthodox conversion to Judaism. This is no small feat. Orthodox conversions are a serious matter which involve intensive study of Torah, learning Hebrew, and a solemn commitment to observe the 613 mitzvot. I happen to know that Ivanka frequently shops at Gourmet Glatt where the staff sing her praises. She and her family attended a Passover program in Miami. She was there for the entire eight days. She did not fly off to help her father’s campaign. She observed the holiday exactly as I did. Ivanka is a righteous convert who keeps a kosher home and observes the Sabbath.
Recently, Karen and I met with one of Trump’s Jewish advisors and speechwriters. I suggested that the Donald should choose Ivanka as his VEEP. The advisor chuckled and allowed that Ivanka would be a great choice but unfortunately she is only 34 years old. A Veep must be 35.
Oh well, perhaps we can look forward to an Ivanka candidacy when she’s of age.
With Torah Jews in the family, I can only assume that Donald will be supportive of Israel. I realize this is only a hope, but hey, that’s what politics is all about. With Jewish grandchildren, I also assume that Donald Trump, unlike Obama, Hillary or any Democrat, will stand in opposition to the genocidal Jew-hatred that is the mother’s milk of leftism and the Muslim world.
And, finally, let me confess: I am a shallow Hollywood screenwriter. Thus, the image of Donald’s beautiful wife Melania as first lady is, well, awesome.
