The Republican Party's 'Base' Backs Trump Because It's 'Filled With Morons' Says Conservative Pundit

“They must explain that Trump is an entitled mess whose business record is so questionable that he managed to bankrupt a casino; that he is an unashamed fraud who didn’t even wait to be elected president before folding on Planned Parenthood and Obamacare, exactly like the “feckless” Congress he is running against; that he is feigning religiosity to appeal to people he believes are rubes; and, above all, that whatever he may be pretending now, he has spent a lifetime screwing the little guy.—Charles C.W. Cooke

7 Astounding Confessions From Conservatives About the Dismal State of the GOP and Likely Nominee Trump


By Steven Rosenfeld
Pass the bourbon! Yes, it’s really come to that. Not only are stalwarts of the American conservative movement apoplectic about Donald Trump’s hostile takeover of the GOP, they are doing the country a remarkable favor by explicitly saying what makes their party so weak and Trump such a loser.

Tonight, when GOP presidential candidates meet for yet a final debate before 15 states vote or caucus on Super Tuesday, these angst-filled voices are saying Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio have their last chances to save the GOP from itself by going nuclear. We will see if that happens and how the Donald responds, but in the meantime take a look at what conservatives are saying about the GOP, its backbone, its base, and about its increasingly likely nominee.

[...]

3. Trump is a white trash billionaire. Cooke says Rubio and Cruz need to say so. “They must explain that Trump is an entitled mess whose business record is so questionable that he managed to bankrupt a casino; that he is an unashamed fraud who didn’t even wait to be elected president before folding on Planned Parenthood and Obamacare, exactly like the “feckless” Congress he is running against; that he is feigning religiosity to appeal to people he believes are rubes; and, above all, that whatever he may be pretending now, he has spent a lifetime screwing the little guy.

4. Go birther on the birther. Cooke says the Donald must die to save the GOP, and those attacks can start with one of his ploys—saying he isn’t eligible to be president. “Melt down the fences if you have to; we need long-range bombers here. If Donald Trump can flood the airwaves with his nonsense, his opponents can counter it incessantly. And while they are at it, they can tie him up in court, just as he’s trying to do to Cruz. There are a good number of “just asking” questions ready to be put to them, among them “Trump’s mother was Scottish, can he really be president?” and “Trump ran a host of scams designed to rip off the poor; surely one of them would like to sue him?”

5. Get through to the “morons.”At The Federalist, Bill James, cites all the rational reasons why Trump is unqualified to be president, but then notes his party’s base is filled with “morons” supporting him. On the brainy side of this ledger, James said, “Trump is more interested in what is good for Donald Trump than in what is good for America… I don’t think Trump’s background in business prepares him… Trump’s hard-ass approach to problems would be very dangerous for our nation… (And) everything he says is either an outright lie, or something he is merely saying because it is convenient.”
