The current 'establishment GOP' crowd absolutely hates Donald Trump. They loathe him, and everything he does.
The 'Old Guard Republicans' can't understand why Donald Trump is getting the polling success he has despite the many insults to many constituencies: women, Hispanics, low energy people, you name it.
News to you 'Old Guard' GOP-types: YOU are the ones who are driving Donald Trumps ratings through the roof. And yet you are still befuddled as to what this guy has that you don't.
The Republicans have repeatedly told us conservatives that if they are elected, they will repeal Obamacare - they funded it instead. If they are elected to a majority, the Old Guard tells us they will get the spending under control - they are in cahoots with the big spending Democrats and have not done a thing about the drunken sailor spending in Washington.
In other words, the Old Guard tells us things that, when the vote is delivered to them, they forget once the gavel is handed to them.
Donald Trump is sticking his thumb in the eye of the Establishment GOP types. He is saying that he doesn't like their lying ways, either, and will do something about it.
Sounds good to me. Sounds good to a lot of us.
And now the GOP establishment types are trying to tell everybody that Donald Trump was a liberal, voted for and funded Democrats, and was pro-choice, was for Obamacare, supported Harry Reid, blah blah blah.
Nobody cares about any of that. The Old Guard GOP themselves have no credibility about delivering the goods with us conservatives anymore. Conservatives (and a goodly amount of independents and Democrats) hate the ruling class politicians and their lying ways.
We know that Donald Trump is imperfect. We don't care. He is telling us that he will fix a lot of things, and he has a track record of doing what he says he will do. Much like Kurt Russell's character "Snake Plisskin" in "Escape from New York", where the administration turns to an arguably slimy, dubious scumbag to rescue their leader from the hands of bad guys. They hand him a pardon for his old nefarious ways if he comes through with the goods.
It's an old plot, but a good one. We want our own "Snake Plisskin" coming in and cleaning things up. GO SNAKE!! PLISSKIN for President!!
We believe him (Donald Trump), and we don't believe the Old Guard GOP anymore.
Donald Trump will likely get the nomination, despite his warts. And despite his resemblance to 'Snake Plisskin.'
