The conservative talk show host Mark Levin offers an impassioned and informed criticism of Donald Trump. Levin starts out by focusing on Trump distancing himself from Representative Paul Ryan’s budget, including Ryan’s reforms of Medicare, and then broadens the critique. In doing so, Levin shows how silly it is for conservatives and the Tea Party to be flirting with supporting Trump. To repeat what I said yesterday, scrutiny is the great enemy of a Trump candidacy.
Republican and conservative interest in Trump will have a very short half-life. It’s already receding, barely after it’s begun.
