Where are you on the Trump spectrum? Are you a Trump supporter with him from the start? Are you a Trump skeptic, willing to give him credit when it is due but not afraid to criticize? Or are you pro-Trump and more bound to defend him when criticized? Jay and Neal welcome Noah Rothman of Commentary Magazine to discuss these factions and also his current piece, How to Be a Conservative in the Age of Trump. The guys discuss all of that as well as the critical question of whether Seinfeld is overrated or not.

    Noah Rothman doesn’t want the immigration laws enforced. That is his “conservative” reason for not supporting Trump.

    Until any of the conservative writers and thinkers can explain to me how the GOP actually cares about lowering the size and scope of the Federal government and why it has not under GOP leadership in the White House or the Congress since Reagan I will worry about their constant drumbeat of how dumb Trump is.

    I didn’t vote for Trump, didn’t support him, and hope he gets kicked out of office.

    But I have zero faith in the GOP to do anything substantive on the budget, healthcare, entitlements, education, etc… because they have given absolutely no reason to trust them any more than Trump has.

    Well to copy many Trump voters, the GOP is better than the alternative. Heaven help us if we end up with a Pelosi/Schumer House and Senate.
