Re: Patrick Cleburne’s blog post NATIONAL REVIEW Against Trump: Do They Actually Have Readers?

From: A Talk Radio Listener [Email him]

I listened to National Review’s Jonah Goldberg this morning on the Mike Gallagher Show. [Podcast available here, Friday, January 29] Goldberg talks very fast and sounds like he's lying, even on the occasions when he isn't. Gallagher demanded to know if National Review would support Trump if he gets the Republican nomination.

Goldberg hemmed and hawed, said that he wouldn't vote for Hillary Clinton, and after being pressed by Gallagher ultimately said that he couldn't say whether he would support Trump. He said that he couldn't speak for the other members of the Gang of 22 who contributed to NR’s anti-Trump manifesto.

Goldberg said that "we support the entire field" against Trump. Thus, National Review will commit to supporting corrupt, liberal hacks such as Gilmore, Pataki, Kasich, Fiorina, Bush, and Rubio, but not Trump.
