Mark Levin States He Will Vote Trump

This seems to be more of a backhanded endorsement, more of a “dear lord, Hillary is so, so much worse” endorsement from a guy who was very much a full on #NeverTrumper

(Conservative Review) Mark Levin made the big announcement Tuesday night on his radio show after methodically walking listeners through his rationale.

At the beginning of the program, Levin made sure his real feelings were known. It was no secret that Levin’s first choice was not and is not Donald Trump. In fact, he boldly declared Tuesday that despite Trump’s holding some conservative policies, “Donald Trump is not a conservative … and he’s not reliable.”

And right there is a big part of the problem. Trump is not a conservative, he’s mostly held Democratic positions, he still holds some Dem positions, and he has not earned trust. Who is this guy, really? He has so often sounded so over the top that it makes me wonder if he’s utterly full of it, that he doesn’t really believe what he’s saying. It’s the old Spinal Tap joke about turning the amp up to 11.

Anyway, Levin would prefer Ted Cruz, or almost anyone else, but

But that’s not what happened and … “at the end of the day, someone is going to be president.”

Levin then listed his critiques of Trump one by one. From his behavioral antics during the GOP primary to his lack of understanding when it comes to the Constitution and limited government, from his massive spending increase for infrastructure to his protectionist trade policies, and more.

It wasn’t all bad for Trump, however, as Levin later spoke positively about his tax plan, his positions on immigration, law enforcement, and foreign policy. Levin did offer a common and recurring disclaimer: Trump is NOT reliable.

Then he got to the big part, which you can listen to at the link, and as transcribed by Mediaite

Levin said, “I’m gonna vote for Donald Trump. I’m gonna wind up voting for Donald Trump on elector day. I take no responsibility for the dumb things he says or the dumb things his surrogates say.”

In other words, he’s voting for Trump more as a protest against Hillary, and he will not be actively supporting Trump. Don’t expect Levin to go Trumpwonky like Hannity, Hugh Hewitt, and Laura Ingraham. He went on to note that “Hillary is so awful” and that she is far too dangerous of a liberal to let near the White House.

I’ve said before and I’ll say again, Team Trump and his followers should woo those who are on the fence in regards to voting Trump as a vote against Hillary, as well as the #NeverTrumpers to do the same. He should be stable, avoid the craziness, and keep his supporters from being nasty and bombastic. He’s been doing a good job for the past few weeks. He should focus on the economy and hitting Hillary. She is a horrible, awful candidate. He should make use forget the Hamilton Rule

If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.

Do we want to elect a guy from our party who we must oppose? He needs to make it so we do not believe we’ll have to do this.
