Skip to comments.Trump No Longer Even Pretends To Be a Republican

Scott Walkers budget reforms in Wisconsin are one of modern conservatisms greatest success stories. So why would Donald Trump attack them? Because 1) he is not a Republican, and 2) he is not a conservative. Trump went after Walker yesterday:
Wisconsin is in turmoil, Trump told a boisterous crowd at a rally in Iowa. He pointed to the states roads, schools and hospitals, which he said were all a disaster.
This is the kind of smear the Democrats perpetrate against Walker, but why would any Republican join them? This, too, is straight out of the left-wing playbook:
A guy like Bush, a guy like Walker, are controlled by the people who give them money, Trump said. They will be bombarded by their lobbyists who donated a lot.
Notice that Trump says nothing about Hillary Clinton being beholden to Wall Street donors, the baby-parts lobby, and so on. Why would any Republican parrot the Democrats attacks on his fellow Republicans? I dont think any Republican would, but Trump admits he is no Republican. This was perhaps his most revealing comment:
The other guys running, the Republicans they protect each other, Trump said early in his speech. Me, I dont care.
So the other guys running are the Republicans. Not Trump. Hes no Republican, by his own acknowledgement. Nor is he a conservative.
Some believe that Trump is an agent of the Clintons, and his end game is a third party candidacy that will deliver the White House to Hillary, the candidate he has long supported. This may be plausible, given Trumps history (including, but not limited to, his eight years as a registered Democrat) and the manner in which he mimics Hillarys attacks on Republicans. I think it more likely that Trump is acting independently for his own ego gratification. But if he does run as a third-party candidate, his motives wont matter. To the extent that he fools voters into thinking that he is a conservative, he will increase the likelihood of another four years of the Obama-Clinton disaster.
Ironically, neither do the republicans.
**Some believe that Trump is an agent of the Clintons...**
I thought, everyone was saying that *Trump couldn’t be bought?*
Well, DT’s candidacy was fun while it lasted.
Didn’t Trump say hillary is the worst Secretary of State ever and that what she did with the emails is criminal?
Open Border/Amnesty Walker, no thanks, no vote just another RINO.
Yes, and that’s a good point. He’s also funded her in the past. And the author here says he doesn’t believe Trump is a secret agent of Hillary’s.
Well, Cruz and Lee still are.
I thought, everyone was saying that *Trump couldnt be bought?*
Maybe he’s being blackmailed if the Clintons are involved.
Exactly. Another empty attack on Trump. I am not even supporting him, but the attacks are showing the lack of intelligence and integrity across the spectrum on the ‘right’ side of the media.
We all know that what we get via the media is filtered for their purpose, and FR is here that we may receive clarification for understanding
I've read almost nothing but good stuff about Walker, but as a retired truck driver, I could comment on various state's and the condition of their roads .... that you won't hear via the media
So .... IS Wisconsin's roads a disaster ?
I listened to that Iowa speech and I DID cringe a little a few times at what Trump said, but because I say stupid things occasionally enough to identify with just about anyone that says stupid things ... MY mind and immediate consciousness sort of glosses over those things and my opinion varies little.
That's what I like about print ..... if something flags my thoughts, I can go back to see what it was
Like many ... Trump has taken me by surprise and I'm interested, but with the latest development of him pulling out of the first debate and THIS report about Wisconsin .... I'd like to get some more information
ARE the roads and hospitals "a disaster" or is he commenting with a union bias or something ?
Didnt Trump say hillary is the worst Secretary of State ever and that what she did with the emails is criminal?
If it means victory for the beast, the Clintons would tell Trump to say that.
He’s still more conservative than 90% of Repub leadership. This is all about stopping closing the border.
Pray America is waking
Wait for Walker to ‘evolve’, after his Texas boarder visit.
And nobody should trust any noise he makes about anti-illegal immigration.
Walker is a big boy. He can handle the fire. It is actually good for him and will build his immune response.
I like both Trump and Walker. They are fighters and winners. Let them go at it. Trump is doing what a good fighter should do. He is aggressively stalking his opponents.
True, I didn’t think of that!
This guy apparently didn’t hear Trump going after Hillary as being potentially criminal with her emails. This writer is probably a Walker supporter and agrees with Walker’s surrogates George Will and that fundraiser calling Trump a “dumb dumb.”
Trump only went after Walker after walkers team attacked trump.
That was self-evident back during the last fiasco, when Newt got nuked in a coordinated attack by the “Right.” You can’t even trust the “Conservative” or at least Republican media. They lie too, depending on who they’re pimping for.
