Appearing on MSNBC this morning, Donald Trump bragged that he could cut deals with a host of Democrats. When asked for examples, he answered as follows:
I think I’m going to be able to get along with Pelosi. I’ve always had a good relationship with Nancy Pelosi. I’ve never had a problem.
Note, that’s the same Nancy Pelosi who regularly portrays all conservatives as racist gun-clingers who hate Obama because he’s black, and who was Obama’s most passionate cheerleader when he forced a wide array of far-left plans down Americans’ throats (ObamaCare, the nuclear deal with Iran, all kinds of EPA regulations, and on and on).
If there’s one Democrat the conservative base hates it’s Pelosi. But The Donald couldn’t care less.
And that’s not all: Trump also mentioned two other Democrats he absolutely loves, and both are as radical as Pelosi.
Frankly, if I weren’t running for office I’d be able to deal with [Pelosi], I’d be able to deal with Reid, I’d be able to deal with anybody…
Hey look, I think I’ll be able to get along well with Chuck Schumer. I was also very good with Schumer. I was close to Schumer in many ways.
I bet he was indeed very close to these people. After all, they share his “New York values.” Something like that creates a bond between people, doesn’t it?
As Trump apologist Rush Limbaugh had to admit earlier today, these statements could cost The Donald dearly. Let’s hope so:
I’m just telling you, it’s a red flag to a lot of people. They don’t want to work with Democrats. They don’t want anybody working with them. They want people are gonna smoke ’em. They want people are gonna cream ’em. They want people are gonna drive them into the ground and bury them, and then hammer the political nails one after another and end this.
The reason it’s a “red flag to a lot of people” isn’t just that conservatives detest Reid, Pelosi and Schumer because of their horrendous characters (true as that may be), but because those three Democrats are full-fledged socialists who will only cut deals that continue Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of the country. It may come as a surprise to The Donald, but that’s the exact opposite of what the average conservative has in mind for America’s future.
In any case, I’m happy to see that Trump has stopped pretending to be a conservative and now openly admits he’s a RINO who loves him some progressive Democrats. If that doesn’t wake up Trump’s remaining conservative supporters, nothing will.
