Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post is supposedly a conservative columnist. Yet for the last two years, she has done everything she can to prop up Democrats and attack the GOP and Trump. A writer for the Federalist recently spoke to her at an event and asked her to explain how she is a conservative and Rubin ran away.
The Federalist reports:
Washington Post Columnist Jennifer Rubin Runs Away When Asked How She’s ‘Conservative’
The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin had just finished speaking on a panel about the “Lessons Learned” from the 2016 election Tuesday morning when this reporter joined the line of well-wishers who were handing her business cards and asking for coffee dates.
Rubin, who has been criticized by a number of conservatives for not actually espousing conservative ideas and principles, spoke on a panel sponsored by the Niskanen Center in Washington DC about how those on the Right have “wildly exaggerated” the problems with U.S. immigration. She also said the Republican Party exhibits a “blind spot towards race,” and that it “needs a new base” after it was infiltrated by Dixiecrats with the rise of Donald Trump. Rubin was joined by Bill Kristol and Peter Wehner, who agreed the right has been corrupted by Trump primarily because of the fringe racists who became mainstream within the GOP…
After the panel discussion had ended, I asked Rubin if she still considers herself to be conservative, to which she replied: “Yes, but I think the rest of the party has gone insane.”
When I tried to ask her what conservative principles she holds, she said that she “had to run” and turned away from me to continue walking down the aisle to greet other attendees.

I asked @JRubinBlogger if she considers herself to be conservative, she said “yes, but I think the rest of the party has gone insane.” When I tried to ask what principles she holds that fall under the definition of conservatism, she said “I’ve gotta run” and walked away.
