Skip to comments.Heilemann: 'In His Gut, Trump's a Social Liberal'
Posted on 04/21/2016 3:11:30 PM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest
From bathrooms to abortions, John Heilemann believes that in his heart, Donald Trump is a social liberal. Heilemann made his assertion on today's With All Due Respect in the context of discussing Trump's comments on a Today town hall this morning in which he was critical of the North Carolina transgender bathroom law, and said he'd have no problem letting Caitlyn Jenner choose any bathroom.
Heilemann: "Trump is probably, I think in his gut, a social liberal. I think his position on abortion, for instance, the ["very pro-choice"] position he held for most of his life, is the real position . . . I think on this issue he's like most Manhattanites or most New Yorkers: he's basically a social liberal."

So is NewsBusters now part of the #nevertrump crowd? If so we should all shun them for falling into lockstep behind him!
Economic and defense liberal, too.
Well, that’s obvious. He talks and acts like an old woman.
I actually don’t think Trump thinks much about social/cultural policies. This is all new to him. As a businessman, he’s been distressed at national/international policies, not social issues. He needs to stop listening to the women in his life. They will always bring you down!
I don't care about this crap anymore. As long as Trump builds an effective, Israel-style wall, I don't give a damn about social issues.
He came out today for a pathway t citizenship, was this another thing he hasn’t ‘thought much about.
Just see how much of a social liberal he is after a long campaign after which he had to endure the smears and lies of other social liberals.
I’m the author of the NewsBusters article: governs=Finkelstein.
I posted the item because I found it newsworthy. I am definitely not NeverTrump. At times I worry about his impact on the party, etc., but at others find myself rooting for him. And I definitely have reservations about Cruz and Kasich.
Trump endorsed a pathway to citizenship today, the wall has a huge hole to millions of illegals, you care about THAT?
A lotta damn good JR’s message did yesterday.
the Cruzetes have just doubled-down on posting the shitty attack articles against Trump.
Doubled-down on STOOPID!
To the extent that Trump actually has any real political convictions, my guess is that he is a moderate liberal or what used to be called a centrist Democrat/Rockefeller Republican.
That’s a lie. Post the link if true.
If he doesn’t build the wall, put us on better economic footing, and choose at least somewhat better judges than Hillary or Bernie would do, the rest won’t matter.
Cruzer bald-faced lies are all over today on FR. Let em cry in their beer.
What a load of BS!
Trump for President
Funny, just last night I was mocked for saying Cruz needs to floor it and prove Trump is Hillary and Bill’s Plan B, then Trump up and proves it himseit today!
