Bloviating billionaire and reality TV actor Donald Trump has divided the conservative movement in America better than any liberal Democrat could ever dream of doing.
Longtime associations and friendships among conservatives have been ripped to shreds due to the vile and hateful environment created by those justifying their membership in the cult of personality known as the “Trump Train,” a sycophantic cabal of thuggish groupies that requires one to abandon any guiding principles in order to believe that the New York liberal of 70 years has miraculously been born again as the next Ronald Reagan.
And as Donald Trump hinted at dividing the Republican Party into pieces, hinting at a third-party candidacy if party rules at the convention aren’t bent to suit his massive ego, Trumpaloompa and former Tea Party darling Sarah Palin was hypocritically talking unity.
Campaigning for Trump in Wisconsin — speaking at a GOP dinner — Palin (was she joking?!), touted Trump’s — get this — foreign policy prowess, while calling for “patriots” to unite behind the man who promised to conduct unconstitutional executive orders in the same vein as wannabe dictator Barack Obama.
Palin mostly received polite golf claps other than a polite, yet unenthusiastic standing applause at the end, a far cry from the uproarious and electric responses she earned back in the days when she still had her principles and integrity intact.
Sarah Palin’s campaigning for Trump in Wisconsin is going to help Trump about as much as it did in Iowa — it will backfire.
In the latest Wisconsin poll, conducted by FOX Business, Ted Cruz has surged, surpassing Trump by a ten-point margin, 42 -32 percent. Mathematically-eliminated RINO John Kasich, who remains in the race, is in third place at 19 percent.
The Wisconsin primary is Tuesday, April 5.
