The late great conservatarian Tea Party activist Andrew Breitbart, founder of Breitbart News, was no fan of bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump, and saw through Trump’s phony conservativism before his tragic death in 2012.
In the backdrop of Breitbart News being under fire for acting as a propaganda mouthpiece for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, with charges of a pay-to-play arrangement being levied, the presidential campaign of constitutional conservative Ted Cruz released the following 10-second video clip of Andrew Breitbart appearing on FOX News in 2011.
During the time when Trump was considering a presidential run in 2012, the happy warrior was asked by Juan Williams if Trump, who repeatedly says that he’s a strong conservative, but has to qualify his conservativism as a “common sense conservative” (in other words, a liberal without the honesty to say it), was really a conservative, and Andrew Breitbart pulled no punches.
“Of course, he’s not a conservative. He was for Nancy Pelosi before he was against Nancy Pelosi.” ~ Andrew Breitbart
Andrew Breitbart apparently wasn’t buying the anti-establishment fervor of Donald Trump, who has been the moneybags for the establishment for decades.

It should come as no surprise that Andrew Breitbart wasn’t on the “Trump Train.” He fought aggressively against the kind of cronyism, “deals,” and bully tactics that Trump has used for personal gain for several decades.
