As I lay out in this week’s show, my fear is that Trump is not being vetted by the Republican primary process but will be by the Clinton Machine. The result could well be both a Hillary presidency and an object lesson in straying from the establishment. As always, I do not chalk this up to accident.
Mentioned on the show…Trump Spends Zero and Is Crushing It…How?
For those with a sense of humor…Ted Cruz Is a Blobfish?!
Update (March 1, 2016): As if on cue, today’s paper demonizes the grassroots, insinuating that they are naive and foolhardy for going outside the establishment: “a cautionary tale”….
- Staring at the Conservative Gutter
Donald Trump gives credence to the left’s caricature of bigoted conservatives.
- “It would be terrible to think that the left was right about the right all these years. Nativist bigotries must not be allowed to become the animating spirit of the Republican Party. If Donald Trump becomes the candidate, he will not win the presidency, but he will help vindicate the left’s ugly indictment. It will be left to decent conservatives to pick up the pieces—and what’s left of the party.” (Emphasis added.)
- The Donald and The Terminator
The perils of a conservatism where the messenger trumps the message.
- “Before there was Donald, there was Arnold. And therein lies a cautionary tale with particular resonance this Super Tuesday.” (Emphasis added.)
