Why WaPo conservatives fear Trump

Mild-mannered WaPo pundit George Will is panicking at the prospect of President Donald Trump. Mr. Will tells us that Trump will destroy conservatism — which doesn’t seem likely, because about a third of Americans strongly and consistently lean right. George Will also calls Trump “insecure,” “needy” and does “compulsive boasting.”

    George Will was always someone I looked up to. His current inability to cipher the reason for Trump’s surge is disappointing.

    • It is no mystery.

      • Trump has a lot more political savvy than even conservatives give him credit for. He has played the illegal immigrant and Muslim card at just the right times. Both have brought him unprecedented (free advertising) news coverage.

        I love the pictures of him getting off his helicopter and jet with TRUMP painted on them. He looks like a winner. The rest look like a bunch of whining losers.

        Swing voters decide the race for the White House. Trump is going to get a lot more of them. You can be sure.

        George Will knows that a Trump presidency would mean the drying up of several of Georgie’s revenue streams/sources/arrangements.

    The Trumpster is now bringing up Bubba in response to Hill playing the woman card. This could get hilarious.
    Note how the NYT primly puts it:
    ” … the issue has largely receded in the ensuing decades.”
    Because outfits like the NYT are in the Clintons’ ass pocket.

    The primary season is still a month away. Trump is only just getting warmed up.

    George Will also calls Obama Trump “insecure,” “needy” and does “compulsive boasting.”

    George “Tiger” Will must have heard through the grapevine that if he didn’t start showcasing more anti Trump product his Georgetown reign as the “must have house conservative” at all the smart parties might be in jeopardy.

    George Will is the most wooden reporter to have ever graced the airwaves. He speaks, blinks his eyes and gestures like one of those silly Japanese robots.

    From his animosity toward Ronald Reagan right through to his support for amnesty, George has been a rock-ribbed RINO on virtually every conservative position.
