My response to Salon’s humorous list.
The far left site Salon recently published a list of 25 conservatives who are “actually worth following” on Twitter. If you scroll through their list however, it quickly becomes apparent that it’s a “who’s who” of noted Trump haters on the right.
My colleague Fuzzy Slippers wrote about it in a post: Leftist Outlet Salon Publishes “25 Conservatives Worth Following On Twitter”
I have decided to take this a step further and compile a new list. Some of the people on my list like Trump and some don’t but they’re all right leaning people with great Twitter feeds.
I made a deliberate decision to leave out politicians. I also apologize in advance to anyone who thinks they should have been included. Here they are in no particular order:
If you’re not reading Kurt’s columns at Townhall, you’re missing out. Few people understand our current political climate better than Kurt. He also has a great sense of humor.
I like how the Fake News Media starts jumping on Trump "not supporting the troops" the day Raqqa fell – because he supported the troops and let them win.
Everything the media says must be presumed to be a lie.@johncardillo

2. John Nolte
Nolte recently rejoined Breitbart after writing for the Daily Wire. He analyzes media bias with expertise and maintains an active presence on Twitter. He also writes about movies and culture with great insight.
Don't talk to me about gun control when your colleague Harvey Weinstein was allegedly out raping women for decades, Hollywood.

Katie is the editor of Townhall and you’ve probably seen her on TV if you watch FOX News. She is an excellent political analyst and writer.
Roger Goodell is a coward. Enforce the NFL anthem policy or not, sitting in the middle by saying people "should" stand is pathetic

Miller is no fan of Trump but he doesn’t have Trump Derangement Syndrome. He is also an outstanding writer who has contributed at National Review and Ricochet, among others. He currently writes for FOX News.
Grandma actually thinks she's getting away with saying the press was on Trump's side and that's why she lost.
— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) October 15, 2017
No Hillary, you lost precisely because the press was on your side.
— Stephen Miller (@redsteeze) October 15, 2017
Few people have had a greater impact on politics and blogging than Professor Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit. If you’re a blogger who has ever been linked by him, you know what I mean.
Now that Trump has won where Obama failed, NYT has to tell us that it's a hollow victory. https://t.co/9FanXkwfwH

6. Dana Loesch
Dana is a champion of the Second Amendment and freedom. She’s also a talented writer and speaker. It’s no wonder why the NRA hired her as a spokeswoman, she understands the issue of gun rights better than most people.
Do you trust Feinstein, Schumer, and Pelosi to craft gun law? Do you think it will stop at bump stocks?
— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) October 6, 2017
7. Don Surber
Surber was one of the first writers to know Trump could win. He’s even written a successful book on the Trump phenomenon. His blog is great, too. Find it all on his Twitter feed.
This is the opportunity cost of being for president. He doesn't have time to run his business
Clinton and Obama became richer.

8. Ben Shapiro
Ben Shapiro is a champion of free speech and no one can question his conservative principles. He was an early and vocal critic of Trump but that has never diminished his expert ability to analyze politics, media or culture.
Facts don't care about your feelings.
— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) February 5, 2016
Professor Jacobson is the creator of the Legal Insurrection blog and I can honestly say he would be on my list even if I didn’t write for this site. He’s a fantastic writer and political analyst. He is also an expert on the far left BDS movement.
I much prefer when mainstream reporters tell us how they really feel, not a sanitized version to create a false impression of neutrality https://t.co/XXzNmMXOzh

10. Michelle Malkin
You’ve seen her on FOX News. You’ve read her amazing columns. Are you following Michelle Malkin on Twitter? Malkin also has the distinction of being the creator of Hot Air and Twitchy, two of the most popular conservative sites. Her new venture is Conservative Review and it’s worth your time.
— Michelle Malkin (@michellemalkin) September 20, 2017
11. Sean Hannity
Hannity recently moved back to 9 PM on the FOX News Channel and he’s killing it in the ratings. His show is one of the few places on TV where Trump gets any credit for anything. He’s also very talented at pointing out media bias.
— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) September 23, 2017
12. Greg Gutfeld
I’ve been a fan of Gutfeld for years, going back to the Red Eye days. He has really come into his own on The Five. He has an amazing talent for breaking down politics and media. He’s also hilarious while doing it.
can we all just agree to take a knee during the Kars for Kids commercial

Sommers is an author and speaker who challenges social justice warrior culture on college campuses. We’ve cited her work many times on this site. She’s fantastic.

14. Jesse Watters
It’s Watters’ World, we’re just living in it. Watters is an outspoken Trump supporter and frequently defends that position on The Five. His videos featuring him asking basic civics questions to the public are the stuff of legend.

15. Rob Province
Rob Province tweets under the moniker of “Educated Hillbilly” and he’s really funny. He frequently tweets about politics, media and Second Amendment issues. I once called him the Iowahawk of guns.
I’m glad the press is now demanding answers from Trump about the conflict in Niger Obama started.
— EducatédHillbilly™ (@RobProvince) October 19, 2017
Iowahawk is legendary. There is no comparison to the humor of David Burge. If you’re not following him on Twitter, you’re missing out.

17. Mark Levin
Mark Levin is called “the great one” for a reason. He worked for the Reagan administration and he is a constitutional scholar.

19. Jim Hoft
Jim Hoft of the Gateway Pundit blog was an early supporter of Trump. He’s also an expert at political blogging. I’ve filled in for him at TGP many times and enjoyed the experience. He’s a great guy.
— Jim Hoft (@gatewaypundit) October 19, 2017
20. Ann Coulter
Ann Coulter was an early Trump supporter. She even wrote a book about it. The best thing about Ann is her razor wit and you get it all if you follow her.
Bush took a shot at Trump, saying our young people need positive role models. You know, like Bush's good friend Bill Clinton.
— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) October 19, 2017
21. Mollie Hemingway
Mollie is one of the founders of The Federalist blog and a frequent guest on Special Report with Bret Baier. She is an excellent analyst of media in the age of Trump.
"What Happened" is the funniest book title ever. Still makes me giggle months later. Just saw an older lady reading it in the wild.
— Mollie (@MZHemingway) October 14, 2017
22. Sean Davis
Davis also helped found The Federalist blog. He frequently writes and tweets about political issues which are important to conservatives. He’s a very smart guy.
The Journolist political class will never forgive John Kelly for what he did to them today. It was an utter evisceration of willful lies.
— Sean Davis (@seanmdav) October 19, 2017
23. Ashe Schow
Ashe is a leading journalist when it comes to campus craziness. I’ve cited her work countless times on this site. She is excellent.

Dan is an old school conservative political blogger who maintains an active presence on Twitter. He has a deep understanding of politics and how things work in Washington.
Obama was a repudiation of Bush and Trump was a repudiation of both. That's where we are. I'm more interested in looking forward than back
