Less Than 24 Hours Later Trump is Already Back-peddling

From Ben Shapiro at The Daily Wire:


Yes, you conservatives who keep waiting for Donald Trump to turn into Ronald Reagan, who hope to unify behind him thinking that he’ll surround himself with good people and that they will guide him to all the best decisions. Yes, you conservatives who bought into the Trumpian nonsense that he would blow up the system and change things in politics. In the last 24 hours Trump has indeed pivoted – directly against all of his supposedly conservative positions. Here are four examples:

Trump Embraces A Higher Minimum Wage. Remember when Trump said early in the campaign that Americans were being paid too much, and that their wages were uncompetitive? Back in November, he said, “Our taxes are too high, our wages are too high, everything is too high. What’s going to happen is now people are going to start firing people.” Now he’s telling the media that he would consider a higher minimum wage. “I’m looking at that,” he told CNN, “I’m very different from most Republicans. You have to have something you can live on. But what I’m really looking to do is get people great jobs so they make much more money than that, much more money than the $15.”

Trump Won’t Be Self-Funding. Remember that time Trump said he’d self-fund, unlike his rivals? Even as donors signal that they won’t be opening their pocketbooks for Trump, Trump announced that he won’t self-fund his campaign. “I’ll be putting up money,” he said, “but won’t be completely self-funding.” Instead, Trump said he would build a “world-class finance organization.” So all that talk about how people who take donations are being bribed to shill for donors – yeah, all that was patented Trump garbage.

Steve Mnuchin

Trump Hires A Former Goldman Sachs Fundraiser Who Managed Money For George Soros. Remember that time Donald Trump suggested that Ted Cruz was in the pocket of Goldman Sachs (“I know the guys at Goldman Sachs, they have total, total control over him”)? Remember Snaggletooth The Trumper™ who told Ted Cruz that Cruz should be wearing his “Goldman jacket”? Now Trump has hired Steve Mnuchin, chairman and CEO of Dune Capital Management LP and former Goldman Sachs partner, to head up his fundraising team. Mnuchin also worked at Soros Fund Management LLC. Yes, that Soros. George Soros. Mnuchin also donated thousands of dollars to Hillary Clinton, among other Democrats; since 1998, he’s donated twice as much money to Democrats as Republicans.

Trump Bashes His Own Tax Plan. Remember that tax pan Trump touted as supremely conservative? Yeah, that’s out the window now. Today, asked on CNBC how he could propose tax breaks for high earners, Trump simply dumped his plan. “I am not necessarily a huge fan of that,” said Trump. “I am so much more into the middle class who have just been absolutely forgotten in our country.” Instead, said Trump, his tax plan was merely a starting point for negotiations – just like his position on amnesty. “You know, when you put out a tax plan,” said Trump, “you are going to start negotiating. You don’t say, ‘OK, this is our tax plan, lots of luck, folks.’ There will be negotiation back and forth. And I can see that going up, to be honest with you.”

So this is the new general election Trump. He looks just as dishonest and scheming as the old Trump, just with a fresh leftist taste sure to please the most ardent Bernie Sanders supporters. Conservative Trump voters – this is your Great Hope.


It didn’t take long for the lefty to show his true colors, now that he’s the inevitable nominee. Thanks to the Trumpbots, I suppose we may as well get used to the idea that we’ve gone back to 2008 and we’re repeating history. All of the O supporters bought the garbage he was selling and now the Trumpbots have done the same thing.  They’d probably be angry and call me ugly names if I were to point out that their mentality seems to be no different than that of the Obama-ites.

It’s too bad they can’t go find their own country and stop screwing up ours.

  1. Glad you shared this one, Kathy. With Trump supporters so busy digging holes in the sand in which to bury their heads, I’m sure there are going to be fewer and fewer re-posts of Shapiro and other great conservative writers who are actually paying attention. The truth might be a little uncomfortable for those who traded their conservative souls for Trump’s magic beans.


    • “..those who traded their conservative souls for Trump’s magic beans.”

      That’s a good way to put it, CW, that’s exactly what they did, and now we’re all supposed to jump on board in ‘unity’. It’s sickening.


  2. You want to see some REAL flip-flops and contradictions by The Donald – check these out: http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2016/05/donald-trump-2016-contradictions-213869 they seem to go on and on “forever.” I got half-way through and gave up.


  3. Flip Flopin’ Don at it again. Platform keeps moving! Total lightweight. Very bad! #MakeTrumpGreatAgain


    • Twitter spoofing aside, if it’s worth anything, Cruz getting out when he did is helping to expose Trump now, maybe to the point his nomination comes crashing down. Whether it matters at this point is open for debate.


      • Politicians are practically racing each other to see who can jump on the Trump train the fastest. Some of them, like Paul Ryan, are being chastised by others for hesitating, so it would be very hard for them to put one of their establishment guys in there now.

        “Very bad!” – With his limited vocabulary, I have a feeling we’re going to be hearing that a lot more.


  4. It’s a mess. Trump=Hillayr=Trump. I’ve voted for McCain and Romney holding my nose. This time there is no lessor of 2 evils. Hubby and I are thinking of changing our registration to independent. Republican Party is dead. They just don’t know enough to fall over.


    • They’ve been on life support so long I guess their Obamacare ran out. Great picture, tannng – it’s perfect! 🙂 Now how’d you post that in a comment?


      • Get a photo bucket.com account to upload pics and gifs. Then copy the direct image and plant it in comments. Wasn’t sure it would work. But it does.


  5. Gee! Who could have ever seen THAT coming? Anyone who isn’t blind!!
