Conservative talk show host Wayne Allyn Root thinks Donald Trump is God’s gift to Republicans because, “We’re actually punching back and that’s a good thing. …I’m proud that Donald Trump is hitting back.”
In a segment obviously meant to promote Trump, Fox & Friends host Clayton Morris began, “The opposition Donald Trump has seen on the campaign trail hasn’t slowed his momentum as the front runner.”
Then came the laughable comment, “Our next guest says the GOP should thank God for Donald Trump.”
That guest was Root. Morris asked skeptically, “Do you imagine the establishment is gonna want to thank God for Donald Trump? They hate him.”
“They should thank God because the Republican party is in vogue again,” Root replied. “We’ve got our mojo back. He’s winning.”
Root said that you can tell Trump is winning because, “There’s no protesters at Rubio events, there’s no one trying to interrupt Cruz events. No one even knows Kasich’s name. Donald Trump is getting this kind of incredible attack because he’s winning. He’s bothering the left. He’s under their skin and they know he’s the one that could beat Hillary Clinton.”
Morris did not mention that. But, to his credit, he did challenge Root by noting others would say the Republican party is being “ripped in half, torn to shreds and stepped on.”
Morris then asked, “Is the Republican Party back and, if so, what is this new Republican party?”
“Very much like Ronald Ragan.” Root insisted. “We are winning.”
Another part of what Root considered “winning” was something that sounded rather ominous given the growing concern for violence at Trump rallies. “We’re not punching bags any more. We’re actually punching back and that’s a good thing. …I’m proud that Donald Trump is hitting back,” Root said.
Morris did not challenge that rhetoric. But he did ask, “Do you think Ronald Regan would be pleased with the type of rhetoric that we hear from Donald Trump about immigration and other policies?”
Root responded, “I don’t think it’s rhetoric, I think it’s truth and I think Ronald Regan was a man of the truth and at the time it was the same reaction.” He claimed that Trump “in many ways reminds me of Ronald Reagan.”
The segment ended with a nasty smear from Trumpkin Root: “If only Donald Trump, instead of calling it a Trump rally, if he had called it a job fair, none of these liberal protesters would have shown up. They’re scared to death of jobs. That’s the division in America today.”

SHHHH!! Don’t say that too loud, Richard — we want Drumpf and his tea-nut followers to continue believing he’ll beat Mrs. Clinton and that he’s “under our skin”; it’ll be that much more satisfying on Election Night . . .
I’m no Ben Carson fan but he’s definitely soft-spoken, regardless of his politics. So it was sad to see him show up on NBC “Today” to defend his endorsement of Der Furor. To rationalize his pro-Trump stance, he justified the violence on people being frustrated for being “manipulated.” Seriously? Who’s doing the manipulating? Oh, that’d be propaganda outlets like Fox News telling 1/2 the truth or less to constantly get bile to rise in the throats of conservatives. Roger Ailes, Republican puppetmaster, created Trump. Though he may regret that decision now.
You know, like Jesus would do!
