Think back to 2015-16 and what Republican primary candidates, prominent GOPsters and certain right-wing media were saying about Donald Trump–and where we are now. There’s political trash talk, of course, and then, eerily and ironically, there’s this: a prescient sampling.
> “(He’ll be) a chaos president.”–Jeb Bush.
> “A pathological liar.”–Ted Cruz.
> “This guy is dangerously unhinged.”–Glenn Beck.
> “A jackass.”–Lindsey Graham.
> “There’s plenty of evidence that Mr. Trump is a con man.”–Mitt Romney.
> “He’s not going to make America great; he’s going to make it orange.”–Marco Rubio.
> “Defend conservatism against the cancer of Trumpism.”–Rick Perry.
> “Since he has changed his mind on amnesty, on health care and on abortion, I would just ask, ‘What are the principles by which he will govern?'”–Carly Fiorina.
