As if we need more proof of how tone deaf and self-destructive GOP elites can be towards their most reliable voters, the New York Times reports that at a weekend meeting of the Republican Governors Association there was an attempt by some “donors and operatives” to come up with a plan to bar current Republican frontrunner Donald Trump from the presidential debates.
Many national Republican officials are increasingly resigned to Mr. Trump’s looming presence. At a meeting of the Republican Governors Association this week in Aspen, Colo., donors and operatives mused about how to prevent him from hijacking the debate……cooler heads prevailed…... Trump is winning for three reasons
- He treats the media like the left-wing political operatives they really are. His belligerent contempt for these operatives is a breath of fresh air even to those of us not supporting him.
- He had the courage to bring up the issue of illegal immigration and crime, and the courage to not back down from that fight.
- He fights like a Leftist.
