AGAINST DONALD TRUMP





From The Atlantic:



Against Donald Trump 

 For the third time since The Atlantic’s founding, the editors endorse a candidate for president. The case for Hillary Clinton. 

 Today, our position is similar to the one in which The Atlantic’s editors found themselves in 1964. We are impressed by many of the qualities of the Democratic Party’s nominee for president, even as we are exasperated by others, but we are mainly concerned with the Republican Party’s nominee, Donald J. Trump, who might be the most ostentatiously unqualified major-party candidate in the 227-year history of the American presidency… 

 Our interest here is not to advance the prospects of the Democratic Party, nor to damage those of the Republican Party. If Hillary Clinton were facing Mitt Romney, or John McCain, or George W. Bush, or, for that matter, any of the leading candidates Trump vanquished in the Republican primaries, we would not have contemplated making this endorsement. We believe in American democracy, in which individuals from various parties of different ideological stripes can advance their ideas and compete for the affection of voters. But Trump is not a man of ideas. He is a demagogue, a xenophobe, a sexist, a know-nothing, and a liar. He is spectacularly unfit for office, and voters—the statesmen and thinkers of the ballot box—should act in defense of American democracy and elect his opponent.

How many more conservative newspapers, magazines, and leading Republicans will it take before the Trumpbots let the scales fall from their eyes and they see what a disaster Trump is for their party and would be for America.  

Rational people have already seen Trump for what he is:

"...a demagogue, a xenophobe, a sexist, a know-nothing, and a liar..."

Those who still support this clown and fraud need to join the rest of the rational world.

Answer... There is no number that will facilitate this happening. Trumpbots are impervious facts and reality.

Trump’s own bankruptcy lawyers say he lies so much they could only meet with him in pairs


Donald Trump’s own bankruptcy lawyers testified that they had a policy of not meeting with the real estate mogul alone because he had a “problem” of constantly lying.

On Tuesday, Buzzfeed published thousands of pages of court filings from three of Trump’s bankruptcies in the 1990s. Twitter user @nycsouthpaw highlighted several pages from the Trump Plaza depositions, which reveal the extraordinary steps Trump’s lawyers took to deal with his tenuous relationship with the truth.


How much more do the Trumpbots need to read about this disgusting fraud?

Read my response above. It is universally accurate regarding Trumpbots.
