If Donald Trump fails in his quest to become the 45th President of the United States, he'll always have a career in terrorist propaganda.

For months now, security experts have been warning us that Trump's call for a ban on all Muslims entering the United States was going to become a recruitment goldmine for terrorist groups.

Well, those security experts were right.

Al-Shabab, a Somali terrorist group linked to al-Qaeda, has just come out with a new recruiting video, and Donald Trump plays a starring role, comb over and all.

While appearing in a terrorist recruitment video probably won't do much to hurt Trump's campaign, it does clear up one thing: contrary to conventional beltway thinking, Donald Trump is, in fact, a real Republican.

Let me explain.

Some people, and by "some people" I mean establishment Republicans who are terrified that he'll actually win the nomination, don't think Donald Trump is a real Republican.

They point to his past support for universal health-care, the Clintons and Democrats as proof that he's a donkey in an elephant's clothing.

But these establishment Republicans are wrong.

Donald Trump is just like them.

He's a "real" Republican.

And that's not just because he's spewing hate speech, degrading women or flirting with fascism.

It's because, like all true Republicans, Donald Trump is doing his part to fuel terrorism, at home and abroad.

I know, I know.

I know what you're thinking: "Republicans hate terrorism! They want to carpet bomb ISIS! They want to torture all the bad guys! They want to go all Terminator on Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi! And you want me to think they support terrorism? Yeah right, buddy!"
