Before Donald Trump made the high-profile decision to skip a scheduled Republican presidential debate himself, he said other politicians who did essentially the same thing ‘lacked courage.’

During the 2012 Republican presidential primary, he criticized Republicans Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry after they refused to participate in a December 2011 Newsmax debate moderated by none other than Trump himself.

How the Republican Establishment Bought Trump to Spite Conservatives and Cruz

It’s a shame that many people have fallen for the idea that Donald Trump is an outsider. His inexperience in public office belies his true deal-making skills and penchant for political expediency. This became clear with his proposed expansion of liberal subsidies in Iowa. Of course he suddenly supports expanding subsidies. He’ll have plenty of time to reverse it after the Iowa caucus. That’s the smart thing to do, principles be damned. It’s the way of a political insider.

The former vice presidential nominee threw her support behind — you guessed it — Donald Trump in Iowa on Tuesday, and although that may not come as very shocking to most, Palin’s WTF-worthy speech was an eye-opener, littered with catchphrases that simply didn’t make much sense.

And he’s using every shade of that emotion as he fights to stay atop the GOP field.

Days after Haley warned Republicans to resist their party’s “angriest voices,” Trump smiled, called her a friend, and agreed with her description of his views.
