What sort of man is lurking deep inside Donald Trump’s innards?
We were led to believe that Mr. Trump was one of us -- a conservative of the gun-toting, Bible-clinging variety.
But friends, Mr. Trump is no conservative. His talk is far different from his walk.
Fox News confirms that senior campaign aides assured Republicans in private that the Trump we’ve seen on the campaign trail is not going to be the same Trump we get in the White House.

“When he’s out on that stage, when he’s talking about the kinds of things he’s talking about on the stump, he’s projecting an image that’s for that purpose,” Trump strategist Paul Manafort said behind closed doors.
“You’ll start to see more depth of the person, the real person,” he added. “You’ll see a real different guy.”
The Associated Press reported that Trump’s aides mentioned the need to “moderate his brash personality.”
“The part that he’s been playing is evolving into the part that now you’ve been expected, but he wasn’t ready for, because he had first to complete the first phase,” Manifold said. “The image is going to change.”
Evolving? Projecting an image? Moderating?
Back in the South those are code words for snookered, two-faced and phony-as-a-two-dollar-bill.
Oh, Donald. What have you done? Say it isn’t so.
“Donald Trump is telling the American people that he’s lying to us,” Sen. Ted Cruz said on the campaign trail Friday. “His campaign is now run by Washington lobbyists.”
If true, Mr. Trump is no different than the Establishment Republicans who so effortlessly betrayed and abandoned the base of the party.
The man is campaigning as a conservative — but I’d be willing to bet a pair of Corinthians that he’s secretly plotting to govern as a liberal.
So the question must be asked. When will we see the “real” Donald Trump?Read the rest of Todd Starnes op-ed HERE.
