It's my honor.
And privilege to endorse.
Mitt Romney Mitt is top.
He's Smart he shot.
He's not going to allow bad things to continue to happen.
To this country that we all so governor Romney.
Go out and get -- you can do.
I'm I'm so honored today and pleased to have his endorsement and of course I'm looking for the endorsement of the people of Nevada.
Well ahead of the Nevada caucuses Saturday Mitt Romney with the endorsement of the Donald Donald Trump.
Some thought and some reported actually that.
Newt Gingrich is going to get trumps endorsement Gingrich had reaction to this today.
I'm just watching an -- way of life -- amazing because.
Some people have this -- of you're talking about Donald Trump perhaps.
Would you like to have that -- on your side.
That it that didn't get an answer we're back with the panel -- what about this development in the world of politics well.
I don't know a lot of Republicans who really think that the Donald Trump endorsement is important or helpful for Mitt Romney.
I think it is helpful for Mitt Romney campaign must have thought for him to stand next to John from -- -- try to change the subject.
From his comments from yesterday.
Which are still news today.
About his lack of concern for the very poor -- -- continues on in the full context that.
If he didn't have we don't know the context brat that all of us know account Jeff -- you'll get some channels OK okay.
He he did talk about how if there is if there was a problem with that with the safety net for the -- he would fix that he went on -- about why.
His campaign is about trying to improve economic growth for the middle class at the bottom here.
I there are Republicans who are very upset about his comments.
Worried that he is an ad makers stream.
At a very fragile.
Candidate on the -- Who is going to do this when he's up against Barack Obama and that he doesn't know how none of these -- have been about his flip flops as you guys have noticed is they're never about.
You know whether or not -- Supports gay rights -- -- -- sort you know climate change or he's pro choice for anything it's always about spam this sort of gap between disconnect between his.
Enormous wealth and and you know the working -- -- Others they report he is.
He he knows that that Donald Trump endorsement doesn't really mean anything he's going to win in Nevada it is not going to be a big pivotal contest for him.
He's a has a great lead there he needs to change the subject from Gingrich and trump.
And the very -- and get back to positive our message about himself.
Steve he told Hannity in an interview that will be on tonight at 9 PM eastern he's concerned about all citizens but now again.
Now and then you miss speak and you have to acknowledge that he didn't intend to say it the way he did and he said this is part of the political process back to -- A Fox News poll earlier last month I should say.
More likely to vote for candidate endorsed by Donald Trump more likely 10% less likely 27% no difference 62% but some -- today.
-- -- shored up some of the doubts about the very conservative folks who like Donald Trump from what he says now you're shaking your enough.
Now I don't -- it doesn't and obviously very conservative folks of people have toiled for decades in the conservative movement they -- -- Carol whit what Donald Trump says or thanks or.
Talks about raising -- they do not care and there are some people who respect Donald Trump I'm not one of them.
I thought the most telling thing was the side -- style of commitment and Romney as they watched this endorsement -- When my kids are sick I have to take them cough syrup and you give it to -- and a little violently take a shot at them before they do that.
Do you see the expression on their face and it's like anticipating pain.
That's what you saw with men and Romney I will say I disagree with conservatives who have suggested that.
That Mitt Romney should somehow rejected this endorsement and should've said no way I don't wanna be associated with -- -- you can't do that this -- somebody who's entertain publicly.
The idea of running a third party candidate you have an opportunity to get his endorsement.
You take it you make as shortest speech a short Eminem and -- as possible this was five minutes and you move on and I think that's exactly what.
I think it matters even though -- -- we saw on the -- people say well the endorsement actually.
Home will induce them to vote against the endorsing I think in matters for this reason.
-- to position himself as the insurgent the outsider the anti establishment guy.
And then you had all these endorsement of people who would be any room for Romney's who went ahead and who supported his narrative.
-- pairing and then with a quasi endorsement Sarah Palin.
So all of them for these people had a rise in the fall would be in the anti establishment.
Alternative are the ones who lined up and supported the -- Idea of him as the insurgent.
Trump was one of those and he's the only one.
Who stepped out of that storyline and instead of endorsing -- which would have been the natural continuation of that story line.
I switched over and sported for Romney nice -- and it's not a huge event but I think it does interrupt and disrupt that storyline and I think it.
In that sense it Madison that also took all the attention off the gaffe that Romney made history.
One last thing -- Gingrich campaign while Newt Gingrich -- did not care the Gingrich campaign put out a statement including some quotes from trump about.
Romney recently told Greta.
Back in August quote I wasn't in love with the job he did in Massachusetts he wasn't popular he was a one term governor.
He didn't have high approval rating so they're putting out some quotes -- And Donald Trump's own staff was saying a few days ago he might run on its own I mean he wasn't endorsing -- rock he wasn't supporting Mitt Romney five days ago.
That's why it just doesn't really carry -- -- then there was talk of him supporting Newt Gingrich as early as today I think what happens they had these negotiations down the last minute and trump finally said.
I'll -- you.
Some people on the ground said Newt Gingrich's camp was just trying to put out -- to say it may be it would happen.
And who knows you shaking your head throughout the entire panel looks so Charlie is very very Smart he's also very very wrong okay I believe there are no response to.
