The New York Daily News might have written him off as an evil clown with an army of mindless zombies, but Brad Thor, prolific best-selling author of political thrillers, has been observing GOP candidate Donald Trump on the stump and thinks he has the character of “strongman in waiting” down.

The conversation arose from a post on Hot Air, where Thor outed Trump as a CINO (conservative in name only).

No, he can change! At least that’s what he told Bret Baier yesterday.
