    People conflate conservatism with bad manners because they so often go hand-in-hand.

      You want to see "bad manners" visit Detroit, Chicago, LA, or Buffalo. Hardly bastions of conservatism.

    Trump is a sociopathic con man, without actual principles of any kind beyond self gratification and ego stroking. This liberal agrees completely that Trump is not a conservative as does George Will, who IS a conservative and has left the GOP because it has ceased to represent his beliefs.

    Trump is essentially a Fascist, a believer in a one party state with a capitalist economy and a single Leader who makes the rules as he sees fit. That's why he admires dictators so much.

    I never said he was a conservative.

    Conservatives have never managed to conserve anything, so we're replacing them.

    Well he registered as a Republican, this time, and the word conservative is pretty much meaningless otherwise. Has been since they started electing movie stars.

    There you go! It's time for a good dose of ''Not a real conservative!''

    That will solve all these issues.

    But you see.. the problem is… worshipping rich guys is exactly the mentally-challenged cult conservative America has been sold.

    Trump is no accident of conservatism… no… way too easy.

    Trump is its logical result.

    Of course he's a petulant child.

    How would you have turned out if you had I don't remember how many millions by the age of 10? (And not a SMALL $1 million loan like he claimed).?
