Donald Trump And The Whore

August 13, 2016

Every week viewers of Morning Joe are reminded that Donald Trump is actually a lifelong Democrat.  Some of Trump’s views over the years to his political donations all point to him not being a card-carrying Republican.

Which brings me to the words of Senator James E. Watson who in 1940 told William Willkie, that year’s Republican nominee who for a long time had been a registered Democrat, something that still carries a message today.

If a whore repented and wanted to join the church, I’d personally welcome her and lead her up the aisle to a pew, but by the Eternal, I’d not ask her to lead the choir the first night.”

I was reading The Glory And The Dream by William Manchester late Friday and came to that passage (page 273) and burst out laughing.    (If anyone wants a treasure of a read–a long one–but one that is well worth your time–please check it out.)
