People who blew Trump of last sumer are now telling you what they think about him this summer. I am laughing so hard it is hard to type.
Ezra Klein last summer:
Donald Trump’s surge in the polls has been covered as terrible news for the GOP. But it’s fantastic news for one Republican — Jeb Bush.
The rise of the bombastic celebrity mogul and the saturation media coverage of his controversial comments on illegal immigrants is a godsend for the putative frontrunner, who, in every area except fundraising, has been underperforming so far.Ezra Klein today:
Donald Trump's nomination is the first time American politics has left me truly afraidDaniel W. Drezner last summer:
Trump will lose, and lose big. [SNIP] The system will work — Trump will have entered the race, will likely qualify for the debates, and will not come close to winning the nomination. The GOP’s nomination process will have proven itself able to weed out superficial blowhards like Trump. And The Donald will be just another failed presidential contender with a television contract.Oh, and this from the same piece:
Trump can only crowd out one of these candidates (unless Trump’s ego and hair are filing separately with the FEC).Daniel W. Drezner today:
If I were Trump's speechwriter, here's the foreign policy portion of tonight's speech that I'd submit to him.It's called concern trolling.
Charles Krauthammer last summer:
Kim Kardashian has a better shot at winning the presidency than Bernie Sanders.Followed by:
Teflon Don. Solid constituency, fixed ceiling. Chances of winning his party’s nomination? About the same as Sanders winning his.Charles Krauthammer today:
Chanting ‘Hillary, Lock Her Up’ Isn’t Going to Attract the UndecidedWhy should we care what they think, say, or believe about Trump?
They wrote him off. They offered a groupthink that was wrong then -- and it remains wrong today.
