Conservative author, radio host and political commentator Tammy Bruce brought the 2016 presidential election down to its bare essentials Sunday with an observation that it was a question of survival.
Whence was asked on “Face the Nation” about Donald Trump‘s past disparaging remarks about women, she replied, “It’s really good that we’re not electing a husband or a boyfriend, isn’t it.”

She likened a president to a trauma surgeon and observed, “I’m not going to particularly care how that person is going to be speaking.” Her concern is the surgeon’s talent and skill “to be able to get out of that emergency room, to be able to function the next day.”
She acknowledged that “While I prefer to have President Reagan back, we don’t.”
Then she addressed the present-day reality.
“I’m voting for Mr. Trump for the thousands of women who deserve to not be murdered as an example by the one of the 1.2 million illegal criminals, illegal alien criminals in this nation,” Bruce told host John Dickerson.
“Of course we would prefer fabulousness at every level,” she added. “From Mr. Trump, I prefer to be offended by him on occasion than be left for dead by Hillary.”
Bruce took to Twitter to offer this exclamation point.
