Stephen Hayes says that many Republicans hope that Donald Trump becomes more conservative and more presidential. Many of us hope that Hayes becomes less stupid. I mean, how smart can you be if, every day, while claiming to be a conservative, you say and do things that help Hillary Clinton get elected?
Addendum: Jonah Goldberg, like Stephen Hayes, William Kristol and George Will, is batshit crazy. This comment on his latest column nails it:
So you pine for the MSM to take down Trump? What will that accomplish at this point? Frankly, Trump has more conservative initiatives on the table, and is not backing down in the face of the MSM onslaught, than Dole, McCain, or Romney. Are you claiming he's less conservative than these limp conservatives? There's something else at play here for the NeverTrumpers (could it be that business is better for "conservative" pundits when a democrat is in power?).
Follow the money.
