JEFFREY LORD



JEFFREY LORD
RATED SPINNER  (WHIRLING DERVISH LEVEL 5)

JEFFREY LORD is a Political staffer and suck up.  Author is a political commentator, writer (debatable), and political strategist in Pennsylvania, who once served as an associate political director in the administration of former United States President Ronald Reagan. (probably emptying ashtrays and wastebaskets)

He is well known on the TV circuit (sometimes referred to as Byron Bullshit) as the man who never said anything bad about TRUMP and most of his statements and claims are in defense of TRUMP incompetence.   His Secret Service code name is: “DONALD’S TRUMPET”.   He has more spins than the whirling dervishes of the Turkmen empire whilst fighting the Crusaders.


HISTORY
Lord first worked as a press aide in the Pennsylvania State Senate.  He worked for Pennsylvania congressman Bud Shuster as legislative director and press secretary and for U.S. senator H. John Heinz III as executive assistant.  

Later, Lord worked as chief of staff to Drew Lewis, for part of the time that Lewis was a co-chairman of Pennsylvania for the Ronald Reagan presidential campaign. He also served in the Reagan White House as an associate political director 1987–1988.

In that position, he assisted in the judicial nomination process for several nominees, including Robert Bork for the Supreme Court. He also worked for Jack Kemp during the presidency of George H. W. Bush.

Lord works as a political commentator, contributing material to CNN, The Weekly Standard, The American Spectator, National Review Online, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Times, the Los Angeles Times, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and the Harrisburg Patriot-News. He has appeared as a guest on numerous television and radio programs.  Most TRUMP supporters must think he’s great because he does show up on TV usually being lambasted for his weird outlook on the bullshit he comments on.

He also works as a political consultant for Quantum Communications, a Harrisburg-based political strategy firm so conservative they can’r make left hand turns in the parking lot.  They back out which is the way most conservative groups operate, in reverse.

He is the author of The Borking Rebellion, about the confirmation of Federal Judge D. Brooks Smith.   It received a generally positive review in the Wall Street Journal.  His more recent book, published in January 2016 (from which he gained the name, “ he Trump Defender”), is What America Needs: The Case for Trump.  My recommendation for the book would be to make it required for the Boy Scouts in their fire starting classes.

CONTROVERSIES
•  In July 2010, after Shirley Sherrod stated that one of her relatives had been lynched in the 1940s, Lord wrote an article in the American Spectator pointing out that the man in question had actually been beaten to death by police officers. Lord questioned her (Sherrod’s) “veracity and credibility”.  He faced substantial criticism as a result,  including criticism from other contributors to American Spectator.

•  In August 2011, Lord wrote an article in the American Spectator in which he was critical of Congressman Ron Paul (Republican, Texas), and of the views of some of Ron Paul’s supporters.  The article sparked considerable debate within the conservative movement.

•  In May 2012, Lord wrote an article in The American Spectator in which he compared President Barack Obama with Mao Zedong because of the similarities between Barack Obama’s slogan “ Forward” and Chairman Mao's Great Leap Forward.   

•  In the same article, he also compared Obama with the Hitler Youth due to their song “Vorwärts! Vowärts!" 

•  In February 2015, Lord called upon the Republican Party to demand an apology from the Democratic Party for its role in promoting and defending slavery and creating the segregationist Jim Crow system.

•  In June 2015, Lord wrote an open letter to Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the head of the U.S. Democratic Party, asking her to apologize for her party's role in Indian removal, in promoting and defending slavery, in Confederate secession, and in creating segregationist Jim Crow regimes. Lord asserted that the Democrats' historical support for such institutions contributed, and continues to contribute, to the existence of racism and bigotry in American society.

•  In March 2016, during a Super Tuesday election night on CNN, an argument ensued for several minutes between Lord and a CNN contributor, Van Jones, about Lord’s defense of Donald Trump. The argument came about when a fellow contributor, conservative commentator S. E. Cupp, accused Trump of “ Crazy, dog whistle policy proposals" that she believed he had made to attract prejudiced voters, and because Trump had hesitated to disavow KKK member David Duke in a CNN interview the previous weekend. 

•  Lord responded that the KKK many decades earlier had supported Democrats and that the KKK was therefore left wing. He accused those who raised these worries of dividing Americans by race.  Van Jones questioned the relevance of the first point and declared the second point "absurd". Lord responded that history matters, that Democrats continue to divide citizens by race today, and that doing so is "morally wrong".

•  In April 2017, on a CNN discussion program hosted by Don Lemon and featuring three other panelists including CNN commentator Symone Sanders, Lord maintained, as he had on an earlier CNN program, that President Donald Trump was the “Martin Luther King" of health care, explicitly comparing and equating Trump tactics to King tactics. This infuriated both Lemon and Sanders. Lemon ended the program in frustration and disgust after a few more minutes of discussion.
