Well there's a screech that I have not missed one little bit.
I was worried I might have to transcribe it since it is way too early to start drinking, but fortunately the Wall Street Journal took the bullet:
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, one of the first prominent Republicans to endorse Donald Trump‘s presidential campaign, warned Thursday of “massive disappointment” among the GOP nominee’s supporters if he continues to soften his immigration policies.
“If Mr. Trump were to go down a path of wishy-washy positions taken on things that the core foundation of his support has so appreciated, and that is respecting our Constitution and respecting law and order in America, then yeah, there would be massive disappointment,” Mrs. Palin, the Republican nominee for vice president in 2008, said in a telephone interview with the Wall Street Journal. “Parts of that message we heard in the last week are clearly not consistent with the stringent position and message that supporters have received all along.”
“The focus needs to be not on whether an illegal immigrant is a good person or a bad person but how sustainable it is to incentivize illegal immigrants to come over our borders,” Mrs. Palin said.
“What we appreciate about Trump is that he hasn’t been a politician, and I would hope the people around him are not influencing him to be a typical politician,” Mrs. Palin said. “As in all campaigns and administrations you have people who try to mold and meld and massage that candidate or that administrator to become something that they want, as opposed to what is in the core of that candidate or that administrator. That’s why the candidate or administrator has to have a backbone of steel.”
Mrs. Palin said she expects Mr. Trump to clarify his position, “leaving no doubt that he’s as strong against illegal immigration as he was to start with.”
Wow! When you are in danger of losing the original Trump Tramp, you know are thin ice.
Let's face it, Trump's main support comes from that under educated racist fringe of the conservative movement that Palin first pulled out of the pucker brush by spouting incoherent word salad and carbonating their hormones with her naughty librarian image back in 2008.
She is for all intents and purposes the lunatic canary in the coal mine.
If she is lying on the bottom of her cage choking on Trump's sudden reasonableness then you know his fringe right wing supporters are doing the same.
