    A Thought for Republican Candidates Who are Considering Endorsing Trump

    A Thought for Republican Candidates Who are Considering Endorsing Trump

    Right now, there have to be a lot of Republicans who are sitting on the fence about endorsing Trump. If Trump gets the nomination, there will be a lot more. Republican candidates for office will face an unprecedentedly tough question: do I hop on the Trump train or go it on my own? Here’s something for all those candidates to consider: look at what’s happened | Read More »

    Trump Surrogate Scottie Neil Hughes Outrageously Blames Pro-Life Movement For Trump’s Idiotic Failure To Grasp It

    Trump Surrogate Scottie Neil Hughes Outrageously Blames Pro-Life Movement For Trump's Idiotic Failure To Grasp It

    This is… one of the more unbelievable segments you will ever see on TV. I’ve said it a million times – not everyone who supports Trump is a garbage human being, but the folks who are leading the Trump Train in public are universally garbage. Just unmitigated trash. And I won’t apologize for saying it. I swear, these people are going to drive me to literally donate | Read More »

    What Happened with Frank Brady and Brady and Associates

    Earlier today, I got an email purporting to be from a Frank J. Brady of Brady and Associates. The email used an extremely derogatory term about one of our RedState writers, and came (at least purportedly) from Mr. Brady’s business email address. I get about 2 or 3 dozen hate emails a day here, roughly 98% of which are from Trump supporters, and roughly 90% | Read More »

    Ben Carson’s Dumb Defense of Trump Proves that Neither is Fit to be President

    Ben Carson's Dumb Defense of Trump Proves that Neither is Fit to be President

    Yesterday, Donald Trump made the worst possible hash out of a question on abortion that you could even imagine. He basically made Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock, and Christine O’Donnell look like seasoned veterans in terms of manipulating the media minefield of abortion questions. First, he said in response to Chris Matthews that a woman should be punished if she gets an abortion. Less than an | Read More »

    This One GIF Proves that John Kasich is Unfit to Be President

    Wow. What a monster. That’s really all I can even say. This GIF speaks entirely for itself. Watch it and see if you can in good conscience vote for this man.

    Trump: This Whole Abortion Thing is Very Confusing (VIDEO)

    Trump: This Whole Abortion Thing is Very Confusing (VIDEO)

    I hope any Republican who has thoughts of endorsing or backing Donald Trump if he wins the nomination has been watching the news today to get a sense of what their life will be like trying to defend Trump while he’s on the campaign trail. Mostly, it will involve answering a lot of embarrassing questions about whether they support the latest dumb/offensive thing Trump has | Read More »

    Rush Limbaugh Admits he is Unable to Do His Job when it Comes to Trump

    Rush Limbaugh Admits he is Unable to Do His Job when it Comes to Trump

    I don’t think there’s really another way to characterize what he apparently said on his show today. According to Politico (I don’t have audio yet, but will work to get it as soon as I can), Limbaugh spent time today addressing the furor caused by his remarks yesterday about the Michelle Fields/Corey Lewandowski incident, some of which we covered here. Apparently, in addition to saying | Read More »

    Trump to Wisconsin College Students: “Always be Around Unsuccessful People” Because They’re Easier to Sucker

    Trump to Wisconsin College Students: "Always be Around Unsuccessful People" Because They're Easier to Sucker

    That last part is a paraphrase, but the first part is a direct quote. It’s something Donald Trump actually said. Via Politico: Donald Trump broke from his usual political script for part of a campaign rally on Wednesday to offer advice for success to his college audience. One boastful tip from Trump: “Always be around unsuccessful people because everybody will respect you.” * * * | Read More »

    New Wisconsin Poll Shows Cruz Pulling Away from Trump

    New Wisconsin Poll Shows Cruz Pulling Away from Trump

    A brand new poll was JUST released by Marquette Law School, and it shows two important things: First, that Ted Cruz is pulling out to a relatively comfortable lead over Donald Trump, and second, that Kasich’s support is high enough to likely cause Cruz to lose delegates. Via the inestimable Josh Jordan, who had this before Marquette even posted it on their website:   Latest | Read More »

    Have You Noticed that No One Ever Asks this Question About Trump?

    Have You Noticed that No One Ever Asks this Question About Trump?

    Congratulations to Kirsten Powers! Today, she officially became the one millionth columnist to write a column asking who is to blame for Trump. If you’ll exit stage left, Kirsten, you can collect your kewpie doll. The ridiculously pretentious think piece about who is to blame for Trump (be it the Establishment, be it websites like RedState, be it Ted Cruz himself, be it the Democrats | Read More »

    Is Donald Trump Smarter than a Fifth Grader?

    Is Donald Trump Smarter than a Fifth Grader?

    Some years back there was a mercifully short lived television show featuring Jeff Foxworthy as a host, in which he would get a bunch of adults up on stage and ask them questions that were at least theoretically from elementary school textbooks. The show’s gag played off the same dynamic that basically animates every television game show other than perhaps Jeopardy – the innate desire | Read More »

    The Battle to Save America Begins, Once Again, in Wisconsin

    The Battle to Save America Begins, Once Again, in Wisconsin

    Back in 2010, America was struggling with a financial crisis it could not resolve and state budgets were creaking under its load. States were unable to meet their obligations and the budgetary outlook for the future was even more bleak. For the sake of the long-term health of the country, something had to be done. You know the rest of the story. Scott Walker grabbed | Read More »

    Trump Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski’s Defense Lawyer Also (Allegedly) Batters Women

    Trump Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski's Defense Lawyer Also (Allegedly) Batters Women

    As you have probably heard by now, Trump’s campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was booked this morning on charges of misdemeanor battery against former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields. The Jupiter PD furthermore issued a video that clearly shows Lewandowski grabbing fields and yanking her backwards, which is pretty much textbook battery. Anyway, despite being caught on video, the Trump camapaign and Lewandowski himself are of course | Read More »

    Trump Voters are Waking Up to Reality, and it Isn’t Pretty

    Trump Voters are Waking Up to Reality, and it Isn't Pretty

    Trump voters, by and large, lack the intelligence and/or charisma to actually convince anyone that voting for Donald Trump is a good idea. Certainly, Donald Trump himself is incapable of expanding his appeal beyond his loyal cadre of garbage followers. So to make up for actual arguments for why anyone should vote for Trump, Trump and his surrogates have resorted to overbearing triumphalism since, oh, | Read More »

    Trump Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski’s Bizarre Tweet about Rush Limbaugh

    Trump Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski's Bizarre Tweet about Rush Limbaugh

    I don’t even really know what to make of this. Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski tweeted this earlier this morning with no explanation for why, either before or since.   Rush Limbaugh’s blessing of Trump is killing conservatism – The Washington Post https://t.co/bxO0GRFLB0 — Corey Lewandowski (@CLewandowski_) March 29, 2016 The article in question was written by former Bush speechwriter Michael Gerson, who is not | Read More »
