    I can ASSURE you of a few things. Trump will NOT win New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Delaware, or Rhode Island.

    You do know the guy doing most of the talking, Rick Wilson, is a professional Republican consultant, lifelong Republican, field director for GWB's campaign in Florida and was appointed to work under Dick Cheney in the DoD, right?

    That was hilarious. A conservative Republican cracked up the anchor on a joke of a network talking about a President who is and deserves to be a laughing. stock.

    If she is conservative then I am a spurs fan.

    I dont hate the spurs but I havent rooted for them since robinson's rookie year.

    Now you can see why nobody takes the left or CNN serious.

    Democrats sticking their heads in the sand about their opposition in 2016 should work equally well for Democrats in 2020.

    While she is a trump critic (a "never trumper" in trump supporter terminology) she certainly self identifies as a conservative. She writes "The Right Turn" column for the Washington Post and in the past she wrote for The Weekly Standard and The American Conservative. So... does her criticism of trump bother you that much? Do all trump critics lose their "conservative" label?

    Here's a few articles about her:

    Jennifer Rubin Is Whacking the Lefties
    Right Turn, her new conservative blog for the Post, is short on scoops but long on attitude.

    She can identify as whatever she wants. Plenty of conservatives are not trump supporters. Her opinions dont strike me as conservative. I identify as a kawhi fan. I'm not, but i dont hate him.

    LOL, jim demint and brent bozell?

    Listen, I get it, she is a trump critic. And seems columnists are often targeted with "you aren't one of us" criticism (heck, when she was hired by the post she replaced other columnists that were criticized as "not being conservatives".

    trump supporters should simply read another column, blog, newspaper and call everyone else that criticizes trump "fake media."

    To be fair, I don't anyone that was seriously devoted to being a true fiscal conservative can call themselves a Trump supporter. Trump is not a conservative, and Trump policies are not fiscally conservative by any stretch.

    Now socially conservative... that's a different philosophy all together, and yes Trump supporters can call themselves social conservatives who are against things like LGBTQ Human Rights, Pro Choice. etc.

    So I think it's fair for someone like Rubin or Justin Amash to identify as a fiscal Conservative and despise Trump. I think that's fair. Calling themselves a Republican... I dunno. I think that party label is dead IMO. The party isn't the Republican party really. It's the party of Trump, and Trumpism. So I think folks like Rubin or Rick Wilson calling themselves Republicans is just basically signalling to the past more than anything.

    In modern terms of identity as representing their philosophy in the media, they are fiscal Conservatives as a representative label.

    Didn't fall in line with Cheeto Mussolini. Can't be a conservative if you don't fall in line. It's an inherent part of being conservative.
