A 'Yuge' Number of Conservatives Just Shredded Donald Trump in the National Review


Donald Trump must be stopped: That's the theme binding an avalanche of essays by conservative thought leaders — 22 in all — that the National Review sent thundering down the political mountain onto GOP voters late Thursday, along with an editorial by the magazine's editors.




The GOP establishment is in an uproar, and out to destroy Trump by any means. The National Review has published a large number of "essays" by the GOP regulars who want to shred Trump and take him out of the primary, along with the National Review's editorial board of well-to-do intellectuals 'formal dismissal' of his candidacy.

Hannity, Beck, Levin, O'Reilly, Erikson, et. al. have resorted to ad-hominem attacks and dredging up the every negative of Trump's past (admittedly, no shortage there) to denounce him.

PS: why does the WP article say "yuge," and not 'huge?" Apparently it's to poke fun of how Trump pronounces "huge." (Why Do Some People Say "Yuge" Instead of "Huge"?)

I do respect some of those names though. Not all, but some of them.

Let's keep Trump in the headlines to drown out the words of substance and meaning from qualified leaders with real ideas like Dr.Ben Carson and Bernie Sanders.

Not that their ideas are perfect, but at least they have them.

But there is a Key piece of Information here that is missing, The RNC has dropped National Review like a soiled towel...

Which makes me wonder was this the chance the Establishment was waiting for to dump the conservative base of the RNC party.

Well, I said there would be hell toupee' if Trump keeps this social popularity momentum up and it seems I may have been vindicated.

It does indeed appear that the Grand Old Party is in meltdown because the Jester has the floor - are they falling on their own sword?

Time will tell, but this will only encourage Trump to exile himself from the GOP, and take all his (potential) voters with him.

It's possible, but absent Trump, they don't have the popularity to bring in votes and why would anyone not in their base vote for them when they could just vote Democrat and get the non-dilute version of the same policies?

Hmmm.

Maybe they've been successfully infiltrated by operatives paid for by The Hillary Clinton for President Campaign.

Real leaders like a career politician and a doctor with no sense of reality?

Not that I support Trump or any of the candidates. If I had my way all the candidates would be stuffed in a barn and burned to the ground. But your defense of Sanders and Carson is asinine.

The National Review simply does not like a Populist campaign.
The National Review brought us Neo Cons.
The National Review is a failure.
William F. Buckley is turning over in his grave.

This just makes me want to support him more.

I'm anti establishment and refuse to vote for any career politician.

Uh... Huh? Carson's busy trying to convince Republicans he can be a "tough guy" by admitting to attacking his Mom, trying to stab a friend, etc. Shouldn't that type of stuff disqualify someone as a leader?

I do agree with your point though. Media just wants good ratings at this point. So they're going to keep running whatever juicy stories they can, regardless of the content.

Too bad most Americans read little more than Facebook. They should have posted in twitter, not in print.

Those Republicans probably remember what happened when Palin was McCain's VP choice and now that she has endorsed Trump they have thrown him under the bus because they know her support is toxic.

He's not leaving the party to run as an Independent, the party is leaving him.

It's still a print publication. They've been planning this for a couple months at least.
