He had the best message.
That is what our Founding Fathers had in mind when they set up this crazy system we call a Democratic Republic. Candidates would discuss ideas and policies, not whether a man is wearing a toupee, or whether
Trump said he would build The Wall and Make America Great Again.
He also refused to kowtow to the political correct police.
That appalled the Conservative Commentariat in Washington; They are shocked that someone who has not held public office would dare run for president -- and win.
And Trump is winning because he leads. He draws thousands to his rallies. He dares to go where others refused to go: Vermont. People follow him.
He won TV time the old fashioned way, by making news. He didn't buy a lot of air time. He earned it. He also didn't whore himself out to politicians or big donors to get their support. If he needed money, he earned it.
His message resonated among the working class who no longer are working. Not a single other Republican candidate showed they care about the people like Trump did.
Buffoon. Clown car. Hitler. Even ape. Screw the Conservative Commentariat. They are more useless than a screen door on a submarine. You have to go to Australia for a good analysis.
From Nick O'Malley of the Sydney Morning Herald:
For a Republican establishment desperate to end the insurgency that has seen Donald Trump take over the party, the results of Saturday's primary in South Carolina could not have been much worse.
Not only did Trump secure another thumping victory, but the establishment's most significant hope for a unifying figure, Marco Rubio, practically tied for second place with another insurgent, Ted Cruz.
Indeed the only good news for the party's ruling class was the end of the race of its humbled favored son, Jeb Bush.
Pressure will now mount on other candidates, like John Kasich and Ben Carson, to leave the race to clear the way for Rubio. But both confirmed on Saturday night that they would do no such thing.
And even if they did, it is not clear that Rubio can beat Trump.And there is this from O'Malley: "No Republican has ever won emphatic victories in New Hampshire and South Carolina and not gone on to win the party's nomination. It is now impossible to see Trump as anything but the favorite."
Yes, it is not over. But so far, all the king's horses and all the king's men have not stopped him. Rubio is their last best hope. We shall see.
