Brooks Praises Trump on N.C. Bathroom Bill: ‘Not Stuck ... in Jerry Falwell Land’
BROOKS: "He has moved on, as the Republican Party should have moved on. He’s playing a different game. And so, to his credit, he’s not playing that game. Now, it should be said, people are saying, oh, he’s socially moderate. He’s socially moderate, but not in the way liberal Republicans are socially moderate or moderate Republicans are. He’s socially moderate in a populist way, which is a different sort of moderation, but he does end up moderate on a lot of social issues. And to his credit, he’s just not stuck in the culture war. He is not stuck in Jerry Falwell lands."
