Fox News Hack Jonathan Turley Likens Trump’s ‘Rot in Hell’ Christmas Message to – ‘Die Hard’?

Christmas at Mar-a-Lago is celebrated in a profoundly different and disgusting fashion than it is in the rest of America, or the world for that matter. A holiday whose branding for a couple of thousand years has been “Peace on Earth and Goodwill Toward Men” (and now women, too), is seen by Donald Trump and his fetid family as just another day to unload acrimony and loathing.

Trump confirmed his perverse perspective on Christmas in a holiday message that he posted to his failing social media scam, Truth Social, on Christmas day. It was brimming with the “mirthful” malice of someone suffering from acute animosity and debilitating depression.

Trump’s greeting to his faithful cult followers was a steaming stew of self-pity and political poison aimed at his perceived enemies, aka the majority of the American people. Trump raged

“Merry Christmas to all, including Crooked Joe Biden’s ONLY HOPE, Deranged Jack Smith, the out of control Lunatic [and] World Leaders, both good and bad, but none of which are as evil and ‘sick’ as the THUGS we have inside our Country [and] so much more, [who] are looking to destroy our once great USA. MAY THEY ROT IN HELL. AGAIN, MERRY CHRISTMAS!”

Nothing warms the heart at Christmas time like being told to “ROT IN HELL” by an aspiring dictator/messiah who abhors the faithful he has somehow persuaded to worship him. His message also reveals his hatred for American leaders who he regards as more “evil” than the savage tyrants he admires and hopes to emulate, such as Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong Un, Xi Jinping, etc.

If that weren’t bad enough, one of Trump’s most devoted defenders came to his rescue after the hellish greeting he delivered. Jonathan Turley, a professor of law at George Washington University, and a Fox News contributor, offered a patently absurd commentary that he thought would slap a happy face onto Trump’s tirade. Turley wrote that…

“Trump’s message of ‘May They Rot in Hell…Merry Christmas’ is to holiday greetings what Die Hard is to Christmas movies: a matter of considerable interpretation for those of us stuck in the Peace-on-Earth or even just Ho-Ho-Ho mindset.”

WTF is Turley talking about? There is absolutely nothing that is remotely similar in his ludicrous musing. On the one hand we have Trump’s purposeful and personal condemnation of people with whom he disagrees to the realm of Satan. On the other hand is a cinematic crime drama intended for entertainment purposes only. The film’s only villains are fictional terrorists who are trying to kill innocent people. Trump’s foes are his actual fellow Americans who have political opinions intended to help people by expanding healthcare, providing food, prohibiting prejudice, reducing gun violence, creating jobs, mitigating climate change, etc.

How are those things related in Turley’s crackpot cranial cavity? His bizarre comment can only be seen as a desperate and lame and blatantly political attempt to salvage Trump’s already festering reputation. And this isn’t Turley’s first such embarrassment. He was also one of Trump’s Senate impeachment defenders. It’s astonishing that someone with Turley’s bias, incoherence, and ignorance is still employed by a reputable academic institution. Although it’s not surprising at all that such idiocy is welcomed on Fox News.

UPDATE: The day after Christmas Trump again condemned to Hades his perceived enemies saying that, “Biden’s Flunky, Deranged Jack Smith, should go to HELL.” It’s just more evidence of his fear of being convicted for his felonious acts.
