Donald Trump's answers on the Today Show this morning are causing anxiety attacks among the conservatives.

And that's not all, check this our courtesy of Today:

Q: Would you want to change the Republican platform so that exceptions would be made on abortions in the case of rape, incest or to save the life of the mother? 

A: "Absolutely, for the three exceptions, I would," he said. Trump was then pressed further and asked if he would make an exception to protect the "health" of the mother. "I would leave it for the life of the mother, but I would absolutely have the three exceptions." 

Q: Do you believe in raising taxes on the wealthy? 

A: "I do, I do, including myself. I do."

Somewhere Grover Nordquist is banging his head against the wall and screaming into his hand.

As for Trump's idea of changing the GOP platform on abortion, well that has certain groups pulling out their hair also: 

“The Republican Platform has always been solidly pro-life even when Republican candidates have not been,” said Vice President of March for Life Tom McClusky. “The Platform sets the standard that all candidates need to work from,” he said, and noted that suggesting the party weaken its position on the abortion issue “would set back years of hard work” for the movement.

I think we can all count on Donald Trump moving much more toward the center once he wins the nomination, and that should cause those of us on the Left more than a little concern.

After all Trump was also against the Iraq War while Hillary voted for it, and like Bernie Sanders he is also not a huge fan of trade deals, which Clinton has also approved.

In short Trump could very well find more support with the independents than many of us might like to believe.

Of course he is completely full of shit and is in actuality a megalomaniacal lunatic who should be kept as far away from the White House as humanly possible.  Which is something that I think we need to keep reminding people about.

    As long as he is himself he doesn't stand a chance. His ego won't let him be anybody else.

    Actin' all presidential might be something for the talking heads to comment on but people know who this jerk is, just because he's not pissing in the sink doesn't mean he's a worthy candidate all of a sudden. Voters have memories.

    Wanna bet that chicken shit Paylin won't say a damn thing against DrumpF for supporting 4 exceptions for abortion, wanting to raise taxes, and not caring about bathroom bills?

    How about it $tupid $arah? You (or you pbots) want to comment on how much you like DrumpF now?

    Piece if shite hypocrites.

    You can bet if Cruz, HIllary, or Bernie said any of those statements, that the Wasilla IDiot would come bouncing out of her spider hole on Fbook and post some word salad bullshit about rill 'murican valuez and how libruls are so terrible

    Eff You $tupid $arah, you gutless sewer rat, and crawl back in your gutter.

      Too many people in this world and I support Trump even more than I did before for this statement regarding abortion and his bathroom comments.

      He gets it. He is really coming around and damn it, I'm sold. He's going to get my vote.

      Trump will mean there are major changes to the GOP platform. They lose who they have been for years. Sarah and Chuck's pals at C4P must be thrilled, along with Brancy.

      Bristol wants to be a famous abstinence pro-life and she has been planning those babies. With the Trump GOP platform she could have aborted Tripp had she stayed with the rape story.

    Yeah, I think the thing people don't get is that the GOP isn't trying to keep him from winning because he's a hateful, misogynistic bigot -- it's because they think he's too liberal. I think most people don't realize that.

    OT Donald Trump has a closer bond with his daughter Ivanka. I didn't know he even had another daughter.

    If you ask me, Tiffany Trump is prettier than horse teeth Ivanka. Maybe it is for the best Tiffany's father is hot over Ivanka's body and not Tiffany's body.

      I read an article a while back that basically rolled its eyes at how Melania and Trump put on the same expressions with their squinted eyes and down-turned mouths all the time. They think they look smart and cool. Gotta say, too, that I love the online pic of Trump's eyes replaced by his mouth. Both his real pic and mouth-eyes pics look the same! You can easily find it online.

      Marla was the second smartest wife, the first was Ivana. Marla didn't even bother getting married, she just told Don what he wanted to hear..... and wound up pregnant. She was on Pete Rose just after the divorce, and his lawyers wanted her to sign non disclosure forms, which she refused. Paraphrasing from memory, "He tossed money my way and told me I know what to do.... so I got myself some jewelry" He kept pressuring her, and she kept the child, so she cheated with Trump while he was married to Ivana, she signed nothing, and knows things, things Don wouldn't want public. She's the one who kept her power, alimony, child support with no conditions.

      I was never particularly fond of any of his wives, nor him, but "the only domestic born wife" was smarter than all of them put together.

    Bruce Jenner is a dude. He can call himself Caitlyn all he wants but he is a dude with dude parts. He should use the men's room because HE IS A MAN.

    Until he tosses his dick aside he can wear women's clothing and makeup until he is blue in the face, but he's a guy. Even if he pisses sitting down he's a guy.

    This whole thing is ridiculous. If you can pass as female, which Bruce really doesn't at this point, go to the lady's room, if you look "lady" enough you won't freak anyone out. If you still are very masculine, as Bruce is, then just use the men's room.

    All this bullshit about "pronouns" and "cis" and fucking gender questions. FFS back when we had to work and grow our own food and spend time doing actual life instead of thinking too much about what "sex" we really are and political correctness and just basic bullshit like fucking "personal pronouns" we were more productive, and we actually lived life, we participated in life, and now life is just a bunch of stupid people making points about stupid stuff while staring at their navels, or their junk, which they are conflicted about.

    Guys? You wanna be a chick? Lorena Bobbit can help you out with that. Until then, just wear you lady clothes but use your damn gender specific bathroom and shut.the.fuck.up.

      Hey 4:31, back in the day when everyone spent time doing actual life, there were a lot of suicides by people who were living in a body they couldn't identify with. Taking their life was less painful than dealing with their situation. I think it is time for a kinder world that allows people to be who they are.

      @4:31 You are evidently ignorant about the challenges that LGBTQ people face every day, and your crude and insulting language isn't convincing anyone.

      I work with a person who is transitioning to become a woman, and she has spent her whole life in turmoil because internally, she has always identified as female.
      She is a hard worker, pleasant to converse with, and living her life with as much liberty as possible.

      You show your ignorance by denigrating these people,

      Here's something else you don't know, and that's the some people are born with androgynous genitalia, and even doctors can't always be sure at birth what sex someone is.

      Get an education, do some research, and take your accusatory and condescending tone somewhere else.

      5:03. Yes. I believe I read 1 in 1000 babies are born intersex. The intersex community are raising awareness, asking doctors and parents to not "decide" or choose the gender at birth. Let the child decide. I know a man who is transitioning. He (she) has a uterus. People need to educate themselves - Common sense will tell you no one CHOOSES to be reviled and hated. It's much more.

    I think Trump has always been a centrist. I've always suspected that he wasn't running for President, he's been running against ridiculousness, which the GOP has become. They're do nothings, and if they can't be run out of the country, they should be voted out of office.

    Oh, and fuck Mitch McConnell.

  12. I love Huffington Post's standard sign off on its Trump articles:

    "Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S."

    The sad little peons at c4p are trying to spin this and the abortion comments he made by saying that it's ok not to agree with everything Trumps believes. Oh and it's a good thing Prince's death has taken it to the back page of news. Those people are heartless.

    There was a little war between those that twisted themselves into pretzels defending him and the diehard anti-abortionists and anti-anyone non-heterosexual idiots. Fun at the zoo.......

  16. Donald still has no respect for women. If they die, well, they die.

    Women are nothing but breeding stock to him.

    Those "exceptions" are lip service to the masses; what he thinks they want to hear. If they interviewed him tomorrow he could do a 180. Because he has no position and doesn't really believe in anything.

    Well at least we know what Trump stands for, unlike Hillary who apparently has no real position on anything. Gryph can't come up with one single position she has, I heard somewhere she wants to "continue" some things, of course we don't know what those things are. I've also heard she's electable and the most experienced. With all that supposed experience you would think she could come up with at least ONE fucking thing she believes in but alas.. that would be just too much to ask from her I guess. The bitch better get it together and come up with something or you WILL be looking at 4 years of Trump!

    So we have a Republican that wants to go after the rich, reduce trade deficits and soften the party stance on abortion. On the other side we have the Democrat who is a warmonger that absolutely loves her some big banks, big oil and Wall Street. She has no plans to reduce the income equality, no plans to tax the rich (her wall street buddies would never go for that) no plan to reduce the trade deficit and would bomb the shit out of anyone anywhere cuz it's good for the military industrial complex!
