1. Up to a very small limit, they have a point

Trump is not and never has been a "conservative" or really any other ideology--he's in it for himself, period. That said, if they really had a problem with this kind of nonsense, they were free to vote for the responsible, principled adult with integrity.

2. But I just heard Donald say last week that the deficit is gone

No foolin. Not making this up.

Donald said that the gains in the stock market since January have "Taken care of the deficit".

He really, really said that.

But the damndest thing is that no big deal was made about him saying that.

Nossir, no big deal was made at all.

It's where we are at in this country.
