While conservatives ought to have concerns about Donald Trump’s true conservative credentials, one fact remains undeniable: he does not shy-away from accountability.
While Hillary and Barack Obama have long attempted to cultivate a media presence like Stalin by carefully keeping the media and citizens at bay, Trump, seemingly, has no problem taking questions from any media or any citizen.
At Trump’s recent “No Labels Problem Solver Convention” on Monday, Trump was thrown a question from an audience member who, as it turned out, was a plant from Jeb Bush’s campaign to try and stump Trump.
The Bush volunteer, Lauren Batchelder, told Trump that he was not a “friend to women” and then proceeded to try and apply pressure to the unflappable candidate by demanding that he make guarantees about the fictitious problem of wage inequality between men and women.
Trump offered a well-articulated answer about how he respects and cherishes women. Apparently unsatisfied, the feminist warrior refused to sit down and asked if she will make the same as a man under a Trump administration.
Trump offered a perfect explanation: “you will if you do as good a job [as a man].”
It turns out that the young woman was a volunteer for the Bush Campaign. Her resume found online boasts that she is an “intern at Jeb Bush for President 2016.”
The Bush campaign denied sending the young lady:
Allie Brandenburger, a spokeswoman for Bush’s campaign, stated,
“While this question was not sanctioned by the campaign. We can’t help but notice Mr. Trump does seem to be very sensitive about being challenged by women.”
Predictably, the Donald used the incident to poke at Jeb Bush on Twitter and highlight the ridiculousness of the stunt.
However, the “Trump hates women” narrative seems to be a big stretch. The video shows Trump dutifully answering a question respectfully.
Sorry, Dems; the narrative just isn’t sticking.
And as for Jeb Bush? If he cannot even pull-off a planted operative in a campaign rally, how can he be expected to outsmart Russia and Iran?
