The Bitterness of George F. Will

October 19, 2017 --

Washington Post columnist George F. Will probably agreed, wholeheartedly, with the title of a David Brooks column, in The New York Times, March 18, 2016: “No, Not Trump, Not Ever”. IN his Washington Post column, October 15, Mr. Will began be referring to Vice President Mike Pence as “Donald Trump’s poodle.” The vice president’s refusal to abide by protests by National Football League players during the playing of the national anthem was termed “too sycophantic” and doing “Trump’s adolescent bidding”.
Will speculated that Republicans will repent their support for President Trump in the manner of “supine American communists “ who became disillusioned with Stalin only the Nazi-Soviet pact of August 1939.

Perhaps, however, Will went too far in referring to White House aide Stephen Miller as “Trump’s 32-year old acolyte.” LPR believes that Mr. Will got to be a Washingtopn Post columnst at about age 33, after serving as editor at National Review. He is now 76, and clearly views with presidency of Dopnald J. Trump with considerable bitterness.
