So, what is a RINO.
It's funny. I've seen the previous GOP Pres candidate called a RINO. I've seen the previous GOP President called a RINO. I've seen the editor of the National Review called a RINO. I've seen the House Speaker called a RINO. I've seen George Will called a RINO.
As far as I can tell the only thing that gets you called a RINO is opposition to Trump. Like, the Republican party has no principles beyond absolute blind loyalty to a man who wasn't even in the party 5 years ago. The architects of modern conservative thought, with decades of consistent positions, cast out in favor of a game show host with a 5th grade understanding of government. It's just scary how deep the tribalism goes.
