More Evidence That Bill Kristol Has Lost It

Blind Trump hatred will do that.

Reacting Monday evening to a Made-in-America event at the White House, Kristol tweeted: “Maybe it’s just me, but I find something off-putting about turning the White House into an exhibition hall for American tchotchkes.”

A tchotchke is “an inexpensive souvenir, trinket, or ornament.”

So Kristol expanded my vocab today. That’s where the gratitude ends.

Michelle Malkin’s excellent Wednesday column showed that Kristol believes that tchotchkes include:

  • The products of “A pioneer in the materials handling industry, Hytrol (which) employs 1,300 high-skilled workers and will rake in revenues of more than $200 million this year alone.”
  • Wisconsin’s Pierce Manufacturing, “produces the iconic aerial tillers, pumpers, tankers and rescue trucks driven by first responders across the country every day.”
  • Iowa-based RMA Armament’s founder Blake Waldrop, a former Marine and police officer,” who “was inspired to manufacture stronger body armor after losing a comrade in Iraq to an IED attack.”
  • Delaware’s ILC Dover, whose “trademark trifling bauble” is “The space suit worn by every U.S. astronaut since Project Apollo.”

Malkin’s conclusion:

to nastily deride the makers and job creators proudly showing off their wares in the nation’s capital at the invitation of our commander in chief takes a special level of anti-Trump lunacy and arrogance.

We expect this contempt for people who actually make and do things from the left, but Kristol has taken it to a whole new level.
