Trump’s New Inclusive GOP Doesn’t Include Conservatives

Ah, the troubles of being rich. You know, when you have a rambling speech about your hands and clubs and balls to give in Kansas, but CPAC is in National Harbor, Maryland. Choices, choices.

Gas up the old biz jet, or take the 757? It’s less than an hour from Teterboro or White Plains or wherever the Apfelstrudelfuhrer’s Luftflotte (credit to Kevin Williamson for Apfelstrudelfuhrer) is hangared to Ronald Reagan National Airport in Washington, D.C., and maybe 25 minutes from the airport to the Gaylord National Harbor by Secret Service-escorted limousine. Or 8 minutes by chopper, if you’re pressed for time.

But no, it’s just too much effort. Screw it, I’ll just go to Kansas like Professor Marvel descending under a tent of trapped hot air from Oz.

Or maybe it’s because actual real conservatives are in the audience at CPAC versus the mix of celebrity-hounds, Trumpcoma victims and Kool-Aid drinking true believers who would literally vote for the man if he shot a non-relative on 5th Avenue in Manhattan (New York, not Kansas, or maybe either).

The mix of new voters Trump is dredging in his bottom-dragging nets in very inclusive. The Bible says when you cast your nets into the sea, you pull up all manner of sea life. Trump throws his net wide and deep. But not at conservatives.

This is the new GOP Trump is touting. Inclusive, except for conservatives.
