Charles Hurt: Sorry Republican Swamp Creatures, the Trump Train Rolls On

No, GOP swampers, Donald Trump is not going away.
Much to the shock and dismay of establishment Republicans in Washington, President Trump has no plans whatsoever of going quietly into that good night. Or retirement. Or surrender. Or whatever.
Did you see his rally in Iowa this weekend? Or the one in Georgia before that?
No.Your long, national nightmare is nowhere near over.
And the fact that so many of them think that Mr. Trump might just walk away reminds us of just how fantastically out of touch from their own voters the Republican Party has been for decades. It is why Mr. Trump so easily hijacked the party in the first place.
Even more alarming, the fact that so many Republicans in Washington still think it is a possibility that he might go away after the past five years only proves they still have yet to learn a damned thing from the Trump tsunami that hit them.
It is so obvious, in fact, that even the crazy leftwing press can see it.
“Trump may run in 2024,” reports The New York Times. “So might they. It’s getting awkward.”
Mr. Trump was so delighted by all the awkwardness and confused speculation that he blasted out the headline to his email list.
Ask yourself this: Is there any other politician in America who would do such a thing? Certainly not a Republican. And maybe that’s one part of their problem.
One small part.
The rest of their problem is all the issues that Mr. Trump dragged them kicking and screaming to finally care about.
Illegal immigration. Fairer trade policies. Ending foreign wars. Confronting our enemies. Smart energy policies.
So it takes a mountain of gall for Republicans — who ignored these issues for decades — to now say Mr. Trump may be right about these issues, but he is some kind of imperfect messenger. Well, he is not nearly as “imperfect” as all the bozos in the Republican Party who ignored these issues for so many years that it took an orange monster from the outside to steal all their lunches.
I mean, how bad do things have to be in Washington for a political slogan as simple as “America First” to become controversial? Or somehow hateful? Or “racist?”
Sadly, Republican swamp creatures have apparently learned nothing.
“I think we’re better off when he’s not part of any story,” groused one sitting Republican senator — anonymously, of course — to The Hill newspaper.
“He’s a classical narcissist,” the Washington politician went on to say.
Seriously? Has this anonymous Republican senator ever met a politician in Washington before? Has he ever looked in the mirror?
Meanwhile, the Trump train rolls on.
As always, Mr. Trump is most effective when he is talking about the issues that got him elected. People today are yearning more than ever for that kind of straight talk on those very issues he alone brought to the center of debate in Washington.
Of course — Mr. Trump being Mr. Trump — he also talks incessantly about the last election and how it was “rigged” and got “stolen.” This gives vapors to Republican swampers.
But it also once again proves that Mr. Trump is still willing to talk about whatever it is nobody is supposed to talk about. He most loves dwelling on anything that gets you kicked off Twitter or thrown in Facebook jail — which is why the guy got elected in the first place and why he garnered more votes than any Republican in history.
Too bad they are such narcissists that they can’t learn a simple lesson.

Red-Tailed Hawk Rescued By Metro-North Engineer Released In Fairfield County
A hawk that was rescued by a fast-acting Metro-North engineer who came to its aid after it was caught on the tracks in Connecticut was released back into the wild in Fairfield County.
In May, Metro-North engineer Larry Allain was operating a Danbury branch train in Fairfield County when he spotted a large bird on the tracks.
A bird enthusiast, Allain was able to slow the train safely and on time, at which point he said that he realized it was a red-tailed hawk that was injured and unable to fly off the tracks.
Officials said that Allain stopped the train inches from the injured hawk, was able to get out of the train, got down on his stomach on the track, and coerced the hawk to move toward him, though it was unable to fly.
As Allain reboarded the train, he notified a rail traffic controller at Metro-North's Operations Control Center, who contacted the MTAPD Stamford District office.
MTA Police Sgt. Anthony Ferrara and Officer Roman Somko responded and found the hawk lying on its side. Somko was able to safely remove the hawk from the track area and place the hawk in his vehicle.
The bird was taken to the Stamford Animal Control facility and taken to the South Wilton Veterinary Group for x-rays that found it had a fracture in the ulna of the hawk’s left wing.
Vets agreed that the hawk would not need surgery and the fracture would heal naturally, and it was taken to Christine’s Critters in Weston to begin rehabilitation.
MTA officials said that the hawk spent five months at Cristine’s Critters healing and maturing, and since it was rescued, it is now fully grown.
“When we heard of this bird that had been hit by a train, we knew that we wanted to help,” Christine Peyreigne, founder of Christine’s Critters said.
“And I just want to say that it's thanks to Larry stopping the train that this bird was able to be rehabilitated,” she added. “We can't do our job as rehabilitators if it weren't for kindhearted people that stopped their car or in this case, stopped the train.”
On Thursday, Oct. 21, the hawk was deemed healthy enough to reenter the wild and it was released at the Brinckerhoff Nature Preserve in Redding.
“For me to watch this bird fly away today was incredible,” Allain said. “I was operating a passenger train full of people and, and I saw something large it almost looked like a chicken.
“So I slowly brought the train to a stop within probably a foot of it, and I got down and I knew that it was obvious something wasn't right,” he added. “It was looking up at me but it wasn't moving. So I climbed back up, got on the radio with the Operations Control Center, and then MTA PD responded.”
Catherine Rinaldi, the President of Metro-North Railroad, said that “this story embodies the spirit of the Metro-North family. It is thanks to the immediate action of these three men that this hawk is alive and back in the wild. We hope this celebration shows our appreciation for their efforts.”
