President Donald Trump is being caught in a lot of flip-flops and his own supporters are beginning to get angry. But recently woke conservative Glenn Beck said that Trump has basically become a Republican In Name Only (RINO).
“Tonight, at least, it looks like the president is on the verge of beginning to look like [just] another republican who said stuff, didn’t mean it and turned into Reince Priebus or Paul Ryan and that’s not good,” Beck told Anderson Cooper.
Though Beck did recall that the turn is one that many presidents have done. He specifically mentioned a conversation he had with George W. Bush on the day that candidate Barack Obama said that he was willing to bomb Pakistan if it was necessary.
Bush pointed to his desk and told Beck, “Don’t worry, whoever occupies that seat behind that desk, man or woman, will quickly find out that their hands are tied and they’ll end up doing almost exactly as I have done.”
Cooper said it was similar to Obama’s claim that he would shut down Guantanamo Bay in Cuba but it proved to be nearly impossible.

HBO’s Maher taunts Trump fans over president hiding in a bunker from protesters: ‘Is America great enough for you yet?’
In his opening monologue on Friday night, HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher both ridiculed Donald Trump and taunted his fans over reports the president was whisked away to an underground bunker to protect him from anti-police brutality protesters.
According to the HBO comedian, "As soon as some shit started outside the White House he went straight to the bunker, five floors below ground. He says he wasn't hiding, he said, I love this, it was more of an inspection -- and he didn't piss himself, he was watering his shoes."
"I tell you, deranged authoritarians and bunkers, always a winning combination," he added.
Bill Barr and Trump desperately want to blame Antifa for violence — but they’re coming up dry so far
President Donald Trump has turned his wrath on Antifa during the George Floyd protests, demanding Antifa be labeled a terrorist organization and accusing the movement of committing acts of violence at demonstrations. But journalists William Bredderman and Spencer Ackerman, in the Daily Beast, threw cold this week on efforts to blame the leftist group.
They found that “none of the 22 criminal complaints representing the first wave of protest charges mention Antifa in any way.”
