A Conversation with Never-Trump
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host
JASmius is a friend who used to write daily on Political Pistachio, and co-hosted my radio programs with me. After he decided to become "Never Trump" and I believed he was writing on my website leftist-style hit pieces against the Republican Candidate for President of the United States in 2016 (which was being seen as a reflection of my position on the issue) we mutually ended the writing and radio relationships. My advice to him was that he could write about his disdain for Mr. Trump, but I wanted it written with journalistic integrity that he felt would betray his position and force him to sugarcoat his disdain for the GOP Candidate.
Since the separation I have left all of his posts on my website, and have tried to say little or nothing about the "falling out." However, after writing a piece on his new website challenging my notions about the split, and poking at me a little on Facebook, the conversation about if to be Never Trump, or not to be Never Trump, has emerged once again. So, when asked about my stance on a piece that appeared on Laura Ingraham's site, recently, I responded.
Perhaps Mr. JASmius has gotten bored.
Here's the exchange:
