According to Politico, Lally Weymouth “held her annual summer party last night at her house in Southampton. There was a long gold carpet entrance from where the parking was to a big tent next to her house. She served champagne, rare filet, fried chicken, cornbread, a big chocolate cake, ice cream and cookies decorated as American flags.”
Seen at the party was a mix of political elites: “Jared and Ivanka chatting with Joel Klein and Alan Patricof, Kellyanne Conway on the dance floor, Boyden Gray, Chris Ruddy, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and wife Iris … David Koch, John Paulson, Dina Powell, Richard Edelman, George Soros and his wife Tamiko Bolton …”
David Koch was at a party with George Soros? Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, and Kellyanne Conway, too?
This should surprise absolutely no one. It must be noted that attending the same gathering as someone with whom you disagree isn’t wrong, nor is it a sign that you are colluding with them.
That said, it shouldn’t come as a shock that these people — Soros, Conway, Kushner, etc. — were all partying together. They are the Washington elites. The majority of those in the D.C. political world are homogeneous. They may play enemies on the great American stage, but behind the curtain, this acting troupe is thick as thieves.
This is actually a good lesson on perception. We, as voters, must be able to discern who is simply playing the game, and who is truly trying to change Washington for the benefit of the people.
The men and women who are doing everything they can to bring the United States back to constitutionalism are in the minority. It’s our job to recognize the value in these people, and vote for them. It’s also our job to see the actors for what they really are, rebuke them, and remove them from office.
This slice of life — this snapshot from a party — tells a thousand words. Washington, D.C. is a carefully crafted stage play, designed to distract the American people from what goes on behind the scenes. If we fail to recognize that, we will never achieve substantial change.
