This gives the old saying “politics makes strange bedfellows” entirely new meaning!
“The casino magnate Sheldon G. Adelson said on Thursday night that he would support Donald J. Trump now that he has become the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee.
“Yes, I’m a Republican, he’s a Republican,” Mr. Adelson said in a brief interview. “He’s our nominee. Whoever the nominee would turn out to be, any one of the 17 — he was one of the 17. He won fair and square.”
Mr. Adelson made the comments while at a gala dinner in Manhattan for the World Values Network, a Jewish organization. …”
After squandering a fortune in the 2012 race, Sheldon Adelson never backed any particular horse in the 2016 primary. We all thought it was going to be Rubio, but after getting burned so badly last time around he obviously learned his lesson.
The conventional wisdom is that Trump is incapable of uniting the party and doesn’t have a chance against Hillary Clinton. If Trump can broker a deal between David Duke and Sheldon Adelson, what does that say about the forecasts of political pundits?
