Will National Review 22, GOPe Disavow Rubio’s Anti-Trump KKK Ad?… Or Is This Cool Now?

In an unprecedented editorial effort National Review, a semi-monthly conservative magazine based in New York City, published a special edition Friday bashing GOP front-runner Donald Trump in January.

MOST of the National Review 22 Trump-bashers came out in support of Marco Rubio or Ted Cruz after the special edition was published.

In the not so distant past Republicans were appalled when the NAACP ran disgusting racist ads against George W. Bush.

The NAACP ran a disgusting ad in the 2000 election accusing George W. Bush of racism. Over black and white video of a pickup truck dragging a chain, the daughter of Texas dragging death victim James Byrd declares, “So when Gov. George W. Bush refused to sign hate crimes legislation, it was like my father was killed all over again.”

Conservatives at the time were outraged at the racial tone of the ad.

Fast forward to 2016– On Wednesday the Marco Rubio PAC is running ads linking Donald Trump to the KKK in Missouri and Florida.

Will ANY CONSERVATIVES Condemn this ad today?
Will the ‘National Review 22’ condemn this disgusting new low?
Will any Establishment Republicans condemn this KKK attack against Donald Trump?
Or is this cool now?

Just wondering.
