Skip to comments.ANDREW BREITBART: Donald Trump Is Not A Conservative (2011)
Posted on 01/12/2016 11:26:35 AM PST by justlittleoleme
Appearing on the O'Reilly Factor last night, with guest host Juan Williams, radio host Leslie Marshall and conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart agreed that a potential Donald Trump candidacy is a bad sign for America.
Marshall warned America about what happens when you elect a celebrity for office like they did in California with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
"No experience, a lot of celebrity and a lot of cult of personality. And we see more of that in politics. So I would say don't underestimate the Donald.
"Quite frankly, this celebrity goes a long way. Remember, the number one reason people vote for a candidate, Juan, is name recognition. He has huge name recognition."
Breitbart also did not seem to be a fan of Trump either, saying "he is not a conservative." He also had a warning for Republicans if they don't get their act together.
"Celebrity is everything in this country. And if these guys don't learn how to play the media the way that Barack Obama played the media last election cycle and the way that Donald Trump is playing the election cycle, we're going to probably get a celebrity candidate."

Juan: Is Donald Trump a Conservative?
Andrew: Of course he's not a conservative he was for Nancy Pelosi before he was against Nancy Pelosi.....
Now it’s Andy’s turn to do chassis inspections. Under the bus he goes.
Get lost. You and Weaselie Marshall good buddies?
Desperation is an ugly thing.
Ted Cruz is no natural born citizen. You like that?
Bank on it.
Well he’s sorta dead so he hasn’t commented on it lately.
Or like Ronald Reagan. I kinda think it depends on the person.
It’s silly to post stuff like this as relevant.
My impression of Trump was and always had been very negative.
But seeing is believing and what he has done to take down the propagandist media and establishment GOP and Dems and moving the discussion to the key issues is great and very real.
How many times was Trump on pedophile island with B Clinton?
You like that?
no comparison between Trump and Schwarzenegger . Swartz was strictly and actor and Trump is an ultra successful international business man .
Andrew Breitbart had a lot of great ideas and started a movement . His book is awesome and informative . It
would be truly interesting to see what he would say about the Trump phenomenon / tsunami today . Of course he can’t ,because he didn’t watch is health/diet and died before his time . Either that or he was murdered
You tell me. Post a link. Or shut up the lying.
If conservatives are like GHW Bush, W Bush, McCain, Romney, etc., I don’t care for anymore. The GOPe party can kiss my @@@.
Not Really: If anyone knew what conservatism was at his point in time it was Andrew Breitbart....
What Breitbart said back then, outside the cloud of Trump is very relevant now.
Breitbart was a self-professed liberal early on.
Well now you did...Breitbart’s going to be labeled a fraud, schmuck, and liar just like Levin, Limbaugh, Malkin, and other prominent Conservatives for pointing out the sad truth.
No, the point us agreed with Breitbart then.
Heck, I agreed six months ago.
But what he has done is real and gas moved conservative positions and outlook and strength further, in a shorter period of time, than anyone else.
What was said prior to this is irrelevant because it is based on a different set of data.
I don’t have to.
I just asked the question and by Trump standards it’s now up to Trump to prove it’s not true.
See how it works.
No kidding. One of the most disheartening things about the Trump candidacy has been to watch Trump supporters denounce long time conservatives after they warned that Trump is not one of us. Regardless of who the person was they’ve been savaged for not being faithful to the new faith of conservatism as preached by the TV reality star turned populist “conservative.” Many of those denounced have been conservatives going back before Ronald Reagan was President.
There was once a time when Breitbart was well respected on FR. My, how times have changed. Since 2011.
