Trump is for Trump and he makes no attempt to conceal it. That’s why his endless reversals over the past 15 years don’t damage him the way Romney’s considerably fewer flip-flops did: Trump barely makes a pretense of standing for something beyond his own success. The goal is to win. If muttering about “Mexican rapists” helps him win the primary, okay. If pivoting and presenting himself as a dealmaker who can build a centrist consensus helps him win the general election, that's okay also.

Trump’s politics are establishment. The establishment has been perturbed by his incapacity to control his id, but that’s about all they dislike about the man. They agree with him on policy, they know they can work with him, and they believe that he’ll enrich them and empower them so long as they properly worship at his altar.

I think he can be a billionaire and still go against the establishment. There are plenty of people in politics with high statue that rebel against the government every day. You do not hear about them because they drowned out by the sharks but he can very well run in big money circles and still be against the"establishment".

Trump could very well be playing us all. We trust him because his is not a politician but it could all be a show until he gets to be president. He is saying and doing all the right things so far. He does seem to anger the big wigs so I think he is on our side.

If you have heard any of his speeches you know right away this guy is not the establishment. He is pointing out all the flaws in the governments system. I don't think the establishment likes that too much. He could be doing it for a show just to get votes but Donald Trump seems like he says what comes to his mind first so I believe him.

I think people miss how smart Donald Trump really is. People look at him and they don't see a politician and he is playing the field like a violin. Donald Trump is very much a politician and plays the role very well.

This is implying if you mass wealth you are part of the establishment. That is totally not true. That is capitalism. If you are not striving for that you have already given in the establishment yourself.

I think Donald Trump has held his own against the establishment. Enough that we don't have to worry if he is pulling the wool over our eyes or not. I just don't see him doing all of this just for show.

If he is playing us he must show his true side sooner or later. I am just happy to see someone stand behind a podium and tell some unfiltered truth. Maybe I am biased because I agree with him but I feel he is speaking like a normal person.

In the recent chaos trump seems to be with the people. He is saying all the right things and definitely does not sound like the establishment I remember.

This is our man. If he is fooling us then we are all headed in the wrong direction. We cannot have Hillary we just can't. She will ruin this country. I know this is hard to swallow but Trump is our savior right now.

My vote is that he is playing all of us. He knows he has no chance to win and is only there so that Hillary can win. With all the bad stuff surrounding Hillary any other candidate would be up by 30 points in the polling.

My man trump has been on fire lately. At this point if you are not voting for Trump I would assume you are not voting. Even if you don't believe Trump you have proof that Hillary is the establishment. Take your pick.

I think we all know who the hypocrite is in politics. Trump is just an arrogant crap talking new yorker. He gives it to you straight up. If you don't respect that then yes I can see how you like Hillary.

He gets away with it because it is true. Nothing about him gives me the sense that they have gotten to him. The more than likely will but not yet.

The Republicans now face an impossible choice: accept that the party has effectively been destroyed by a madcap tycoon, or seek to stop him becoming its nominee by using skulduggery at its convention in July.

I don't see it. If they wanted a puppet they picked the most unstable person for the job in history. They cannot control him if they wanted to. His mind just wanders off and he starts talking to himself out load I think. He doesn't care what he says.

I guess it is just too hard to believe that someone would actually come out and tell us the truth. He is right the system is broken they do not care about us. Give him a chance at least he is admitting the system is rigged. No one has ever given us that credit before.
