Tucker Carlson of the Daily Caller, who has been neither for or against Trump, said something innocuous about the elites ignoring Trump's supporters, and the issue of immigration.
Hayes flipped out. Via Gateway Pundit:
If you have principles, if you believe that… we shouldn’t ban a religion. Ban a religion! Don’t ban a religion? In a country founded on freedom of religion it’s not a good idea to ban a religion? Even with asterisks? Republicans can’t just cast aside their principles. Free trade because Donald Trump comes around and this orange guy suggests free trade is bad we’re going to throw away 300 years of Adam Smith?He is wrong.
Just plain wrong.
No one is talking about baning a religion. That is a liberal; distortion of the call to simply stop accepting people from Muslim countries until we can sort the terrorists from the refugees. That means if Pakistan wants us to accept its tourists and immigrants, then it had better screen the applicants better.
As for Adam Smith, Hayes does not know what he is talking about. Reagan imposed punitive tariffs to save American businesses.
Besides getting his facts wrong, Hayes is a loser. He cannot make a cogent argument and so he calls Trump "this orange guy." I am guessing that scores him some points with his liberal friends, and the donors to the Weekly Standard.
As for his chest-thumping about "principles," well, I have them too. I put my country ahead of my party. I will be damned if I will allow these elitist snobs in the Never Trump movement to rob the graves of Reagan, Breitbart and even Buckley unchallenged. If they want to run a third-party candidate, let them. But being a sore loser who badmouths the winner is not a Conservative Principle. It is a childish tantrum thrown by a spoiled brat -- and I don't care if you are 7 or 70, that is what it is.
The Republican voters rejected their man because he is a liar and a sneak who has never accomplished much other than resume building. Clerk for Rehnquist, staffer in the Bush administration, solicitor general in Texas, the U.S. Senate -- ticket-punching.
Trump built skyscrapers when he was your age, kid.
Hayes and company have been wrong on Trump for over a year now. They have yet to make a cogent argument against him. So they mock his skin color. That little outburst was entertaining. I hope everyone saw it.
