Did Ron miss a chance to influence Hillary's platform? If your answer is "no", you have no reason to be angry. Ron has as much in common with Trump as he does Clinton. Trump is NOT FIGHTING THE ESTABLISHMENT. He is fighting for himself and himself only. If you vote for him you symbolically rebuke nearly every principle Ron stood for.
You pointed out that Ron got a lot of support for his smackdown of Rudy and US foreign policy. You're right. 100% right. AND RUDY IS TRUMP'S CLOSEST ADVISER! So you liked Ron for smacking down Rudy, and now you like Trump who hold essentially the same views as Rudy. Plus, the topic Ron owned Rudy on was blowback, 9/11, and Iraq. Trump is on the polar opposite side on these issues. He was for Iraq, Libya, intervention in Syria, etc, before he was against them. Plus, listen to his rhetoric; is that how a non interventionist talks?
Trump has fooled you. Just because media heads are shocked by his behavior doesn't mean he's 'anti establishment'. The media hated Bush II, too.
EDIT: Ron has said as much and is 100% correct: “In some places, Trump is worse than the establishment. He says he loves torture! Trump is very conventional. He has nothing new when it comes to serious ideas.”
