Remember Kent Bailey? He's the WorldNetDaily columnist obsessed with Donald Trump's alleged masculinity (and his whiteness) and portraying him as our "warrior king." After laying low for about a year or so, Bailey's back with his same schtick. In his Feb. 14 column, he likened Trump to a Japanese samaurai warrior who "did everything wrong from the standpoint of the ruling hoi polloi, but ultimately won a historic victory and established himself as a true warrior extraordinaire":
Doesn't this all sound a lot like our president, Donald J. Trump? He is fierce in his convictions, brutal in his repartee, impatient and bored with the intellectual silliness of our age, and political correctness be damned. He wins, wins and wins until we are all bored – and thank God for those wins. Without them, with Hillary as our national leader, America would be America no more.
Bailey went on to identify who he considered "true 'warrior' politicians" like Trump, and unsurprisingly, they're all right-wing ideologues:
Some of my other favorite warriors are no-nonsense Dan Bongino of Fox News and erstwhile tough-as-nails White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. In the past, I found Sen. Mitch a little too "political," but he was a warrior extraordinaire during the Senate impeachment hearings and his closing speech simply breathtaking.
The best die young, and Jerry Falwell was a true warrior for God and man, and I loved Pastor D. James Kennedy who not only fought the great moral and spiritual battles of our age but who knew more human psychology and sociology than professionals like myself. In today's morally complex and post-Christian world, you have to know them to fight them.
In 2006, I designated commentator Ann Coulter as one of the country's top "warrior males," and I am proud of her for excoriating conservatives for falling into the racism trap over the Bloomberg matter. Yes, stop apologizing for saving back lives!
Last but not least, the warrior extraordinaire Oscar for 2020 goes to the radio genius Rush Limbaugh who has been the prophet of conservativism and political realism for two generations and has fought the good fight like no other. We love you, Rush, and pray for you every day.
We may debate what constitutes a warrior extraordinaire and who they are, but one thing is certain: There are not nearly enough of them to save us from a leftward slide into socialism or to stave off our continual regression toward anti-Christian paganism and savagery. It is not fair to expect President Trump – no matter how extraordinary he may be – to do it alone.
Bailey followed up in his Feb. 25 column by endorsing the election of Ivanka Trump as president in 2024:
Forget about the 2020 election, which Donald Trump will win by a landslide. Think ahead to 2024 when our politics will be more peaceful, bipartisan, effective and sane, and the angry and hateful Democratic socialists and commie wannabes will be consigned to their proper place in the dustbin of history. America will be America once again, and, of course, it will be great!
The president following Trump must be one of talent and exceptional character who will continue and expand the Make America the Greatest Ever program. At all costs, we must never lapse back to the political correctness, identity madness, vague globalism, climate silliness and vicious tribalism of the current Democratic Party.
If Ivanka Trump succeeded Donald Trump as president in 2025, she would not only be the long-awaited "first woman" chief executive but also one of the most personable, elegant and best-prepared persons ever for the office. Indeed, she will have had eight years of firsthand experience within the intrigue and drama of her father's gut-wrenching "war of the worlds" presidency.
Bailey then revealed his weird penchant for "constructing a simple 1-8 point scale where any measured or assumed difference can be rated." But he then demonstrates that his scale is so laughably subjective as to be meaningless:
Now let's develop a simple 8-point rating scale for assessing current candidates running for president. "Eminently Qualified to be President of the United States" is assigned to level 8, and "Totally Unqualified to be President of the United States" assigned to level 1. I believe the resulting numerical ratings will be more accurate and meaningful than just making vague evaluative judgments about candidates. In essence, we are rating the "total package" level 8 versus "none of the package" level 1, or somewhere in between.
On this scale, I would give Ivanka Trump a 5.75 today on the 8-point Eminently Qualified scale, and I would predict a rating over 6 following experience gained during her father's second term. Thus, I predict that she will be hovering near to "eminently qualified" to run in 2024. She is truly a "total package," and that is a rarity in our increasingly self-indulgent and decadent culture.
How would the current candidates of the Democratic Party fare on this scale? In my view, those now challenging Donald Trump are so weak as a group that rating them is a waste of time. I see none of them even approaching "Eminently Qualified to be President," and the best of the lot, in my view, cannot even score above the mid-point of 4 on the 8-point scale. We have to ask, is this the best America has to offer?
Kooky political Independent and "democratic socialist" Bernie Sanders now leads this merry band of miscreants on its path of self-destruction, splintering and neutralization of the traditional Democratic Party. Party loyalists like James Carville and Chris Matthews are nigh-hysterical regarding Bernie as the party standard bearer, and MSNBC is in full meltdown. For them, the sky is falling, and the end is near for their time in the sun. They would give commie Bernie a measly 1 on our scale – that is, "Eminently Disqualifed!"
Ivanka Trump is, at this moment, more qualified to be president than any of those currently running against her father, Donald J. Trump. By the end of her father's second term, she will be even more qualified – good news indeed for those hoping to make America even greater.
It seems like Bailey is misusing his experience in clinical psychology to push a partisan agenda instead of offering an objective examination of things.
