Cenk Uygur: Trump Is A Right-Wing Republican, So Why Doesn't The GOP Establishment Like Him?


Donald Trump vs. The Republican Establishment. Trump has been leading for three months now, and the GOP is starting to panic because Trump doesn’t listen to them. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down.

CENK UYGUR: Number one: He is not going with all of their talking points, so they are very, very upset. So when he blames Bush for 9/11 and says the Iraq war was stupid, they're like: "Noooo, don't do that, we had everybody tricked!"

But mor eimportantly, he says the donors are the problem. They are the donors.

The Republican establishment is not neccesarily a series of politicians, it is a series of donors who control the politicans

When Trump takes a potshot at them, they did not sanction this, what is going on?

On a more serious side... [the donors] can't control him... We;re used to these Republican politicans, anyone we donate to, being our boy, sarrying water for us.

Scott Walker was such a good boy. When we told him to destroy the unions in Wisconsin, he did it for us, and when we told him we need to consolodate against Trump, he immediately bowed out of the race: "yes sir! Absolutely sir, let me get you water sir"

So that's the kind of Republican politican the GOP establishment is used to.
