Against his security advisors’ advice, Trump congratulated Putin on his election “win.” #45 praised a man who won a fixed sham of an election, a man who murders his opposition.
McCain: “An American president does not lead the free world by congratulating dictators on winning sham elections”.

How can a loyal American even THINK of supporting this madman?
Dionne: "This should be a wake-up call to political analysts who have gone out of their way since Trump announced his candidacy to pretend that he was the ingenious creator of a political special sauce who deserved our respect for "speaking his mind." No, Trump all along has been a clinically self-involved con man who never took the issues, the presidency or the future of our country seriously. Can there be any doubt that his campaign is a branding exercise gone, quite literally, mad?
If this Trump episode [namely, the Alicia M. tweets] does not lead to a flood of defections among Republican politicians supporting him, they will be on record as putting party loyalty (or fear of Trump’s followers in GOP primaries) over the need to protect the nation from a truly unhinged leader. And this should be the end of the pretense, which sometimes drives the media, that whatever might be wrong with Trump, there are things equally wrong with Clinton. Sorry. Clinton may have her problems, but she has never, ever behaved like this."
I strongly recommend Infidel753's astute essay on The Trump movement and what it means.
