There are times when a person will say, "I hate to say 'I told you so', but....." and then go on to say it. In this case, I am not hating it. In fact, I am reveling in it. Last night, Donald Trump, in a town hall event with one of his biggest sycophants, Sean Hannity, did a complete 180 regarding his views on immigration. His position diverged so much from what it was that he now has the same view on immigration as the famous RINO cuck loser, Jeb Bush.
Guess what? "I told you so."
Last December, I wrote about five reasons I would not support Donald Trump if he became the GOP nominee. The second point on the list was this:
2. He's lying to everybody on immigration. He's not going to build his "big beautiful wall" and he's not going to get Mexico pay for it. He's not going to deport 11-12 million illegal immigrants.
Somebody told me it was "prescient." Not really. It was as easy to "predict" as saying the sun will rise in the east. It wasn't just me, of course. Several RedState writers including Aaron Gardner (who gave us #NeverTrump) and Ben Howe have been saying it as well. GOP operatives Rick Wilson and Liz Mair are on the list of those who warned people about Trump, as did Tom Nichols from The Federalist. National Review has been called a "liberal rag" as the bulk of their editorial staff, including Charles Cooke and Jonah Goldberg, have been warning people about the orange spray tan wonder-boy.
The warnings went unheeded. We sat there as a bunch self-righteous, holier-than-thou writers and bloggers from various conservative publications squawked and crowed about Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina and John Kasich all being unacceptable candidates due to their support for "amnesty." Ted Cruz was the only acceptable alternative to some of them, but even he was targeted by a mass of Trump supporters as an "establishment insider politician" who is "owned" by Washington DC and Goldman Sachs.Read the rest of Jay Caruso's op-ed HERE.
