The brilliant conservative thinker George Will lambasted Donald Trump on Sunday when he pointed out that Donald Trump’s campaign for President likely would be no different if he were a Democrat mole sent to undermine the GOP!!!
Brit [Hume] is right that there is a double standard here; Republicans are identified with the unfortunate people in their own party, but ask yourself this thought experiment:
If Donald Trump were a Democratic mole placed in the Republican Party to disrupt things, how would his behavior be any different?
I don’t think it would be. There’s all this loose talk, there’s something to it about the Republican brand.
Put him on stage in Cleveland [at the first GOP debate]. He says something hideously inflammatory, which is all he knows how to say, and then what do the other nine people on stage do?
Do they either become complicit in what he said by their silence, or do they have to attack him?
The debate gets hijacked, the process gets hijacked, and at the end of the day he is a one-man Todd Akin.
