Go ahead Trump supporters, give him the nomination, and forever be associated with the worst candidate to seek the office of the presidency in recent history: The Thug With Money.
That thousands of people support the Trumper doesn't change the fact that he's a repulsive, violent, racist, xenophobic, misogynistic, anti-veteran, serial lying, bigot.
I say let the Goops own this walking disaster -- forever.
Let the people who believe he'd make a swell president vote for this charlatan just like they supported and voted for that other walking disaster from Alaska. They've learned nothing these past 8 years, still falling for loud-mouth, empty-headed fakes, who know nothing about governing but everything about stirring up the discontented with xenophobic and violent rhetoric.
We couldn't think of a better person to represent what the Party of Lincoln has become:
"The Republican Party, under Trump, is headed for a combustive breakup. Ronald Reagan envisioned a shining city on a hill. Trump represents nothing more than a thug with money. Can the man who shouts “I’d like to punch him in face!” and “Knock the crap out of them!” about protesters possibly quote Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Dwight Eisenhower or Reagan in his acceptance speech? He could, but it would be no more plausible than a fish doing a tap dance.
In temperament and judgment, this is now Trump’s party. And take him at his word: His supporters will riot, as he predicted this week, if he doesn’t get his way.
Sane Republicans, perhaps a third of the party, have no choice but to plot an honorable discharge. The exit polls in Ohio found that 42 percent of Republicans said they would consider a third-party candidate. They can also support Hillary Clinton, or sit this one out. But they cannot show up in Cleveland and have their principles paved over by Trump’s bullies." --T. Egan, NYTimes
