Dennis Prager: I Was Wrong, Donald Trump Is A Great President

|

On his Thursday radio show, Dennis Prager said Donald Trump "turned out to be a great president with big communication flaws."

"My opposition to Donald Trump was wrong," Prager said. "People are packages. What a president does is more important to me than a president’s demeanor. He is so much better a president than Mitt Romney would’ve made."

"Mitt Romney would’ve awakened every day to read The New York Times editorial page to see how he’s covered," Prager also said. "[Trump] doesn’t give a damn about what the press says about him. That is the only way to govern. It is the only way to advance the principles of conservatism in the United States is to not give a damn."





Via Breitbart:

DENNIS PRAGER: Would I like Donald Trump to have Mitt Romney’s temperament, or for that matter Barack Obama’s temperament? Yeah. So what?

I would like a whole host of things. People are packages. What a president does is more important to me than a president’s demeanor. He is so much better a president than Mitt Romney would’ve made. Mitt Romney would’ve awakened every day to read The New York Times editorial page to see how he’s covered. Mitt Romney gave us Romneycare in Massachusetts. I campaigned for Mitt Romney, he would’ve been a better president [than Barack Obama]. Any Republican is better than any Democrat, that’s just the way it is. Having said that, Romney would’ve been a tepid president. Nothing comparably conservative compared to Donald Trump.

The Heritage Foundation has just come out with a statement, a report, that he is more conservative than Ronald Reagan in the way he has conducted the first year of his presidency, which is accurate, something I have said on many occasions.

He has turned out to be a great president with big communication flaws, in the way he tweets and some of the things he says and his temperament. It is fine, that is the way he is.

My temperament is the opposite. I love dignity. I love understatement. Okay, so be it. So what? I’m not sure I’d be as good a president as he. How do you like that? That’s how good he’s been.

The fact that he doesn't give a damn.

I was wrong. My opposition to Donald Trump was wrong, in retrospect. I was wrong. I had friends who supported him, and I didn’t understand them. I said, "Are you not aware of what he said about John McCain? Isn’t that enough to disqualify the guy?" They perceived in him what I did not perceive in him, that these over-the-top statements – as objectionable as the statements themselves may be, and none of them defended the statements – nevertheless, what they perceived was accurate: a man who doesn’t give a damn about what the press says about him. That is the only way to govern. It is the only way to advance the principles of conservatism in the United States is to not give a damn.
