"Donald Trump is no conservative. He’s contributed more to Hillary Clinton than to any other politician. He’s supported abortion on demand, national health insurance and gun control. He was for bailing out the big banks whose reckless lending was a root cause of the Great Recession. His call for higher taxes on higher incomes has been embraced by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. . . 'Dealing with Trump as a conservative is like dating a hot, crazy stripper who keeps eyeing your wallet that’s sitting on the bureau,' said columnist Kurt Schlichter."
NOTE from MBV: Before you Trump fans start calling the author names, you should know something of his biography. Back in the 90s I was interviewed by Kelly and I found him eminently fair and he quoted me accurately. Here is thumbnail bio:
After earning a degree in journalism from the University of Wisconsin (Madison) in 1970, Jack Kelly enlisted in the Marine Corps. He had a few months before he reported for boot camp; so he went to Vietnam as a correspondent for the Lavine Newspapers, a small chain of dailies in Wisconsin.The series of articles he wrote from Vietnam won first prize in Wisconsin UPI's feature competition for that year.Mr. Kelly followed enlisted service in the Marine Corps with service in both the Marine reserve and the Army reserve, where he was the intelligence officer for a Special Forces company.Mr. Kelly served as a deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force during the Reagan administration.He was called to active duty at the Pentagon during the Gulf War and concluded his military reserve career as a major assigned to the U.S. Army Special Operations Command at Fort Bragg, N.C.Mr. Kelly, 53, joined The Blade staff in 1995.
