• Brit Hume: Trump’s ‘Moment Will Fade’ When Voters Realize He Is A Democrat

    Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume said Sunday that GOP candidate Donald Trump is tapping into a potent well of anti-establishment anger, but “over time, his moment will fade” once his supporters realize that he was supportive of Democrats and liberal policies just a few years ago.

    “There’s a segment of the Republican electorate that is angrier with the mainstream GOP leadership, in Congress and on the campaign trial, than it is with Democrats,” Hume said. “Donald Trump has captivated them for the moment, and by doing so he’s basically eclipsed Ted Cruz, the previous horse. He will have a run. I think the chickens will come home to roost.”

    Hume said people will soon realize that Trump hasn’t been a Republican for very long.

    “For many years he gave more money to Democrats, praised Hillary Clinton, said that Mitt Romney was too mean on immigration for taking positions weaker than the one that he’s taken now and over time his moment will fade,” Hume recalled.

    “Over time, his moment will fade,” he predicted. “But it’ll take a while. He’s got a lot of money. He’ll be with us a while. And he could be third party threat.”
