I am also shocked, disgusted, and depressed that his party--the GOP--and the 63 million who voted for this horrible human being continue to tolerate his behavior.
I looked up an old post of mine, from February 2, 2016. Yes, well before he wrapped up the nomination.
That post is titled, "He must be stopped." But, how? By whom?"
In the comments/discussion there, in response to a GOP loyalist, who no longer comments here, I wrote:
Hey, your party's people--the base as well as the leaders--created this Trump monster ... unfortunately, it is not merely the GOP's problem now :(My longtime commenter joined in with:
He's winning big in the primaries. Which essentially means that he has support from more than nutcases. And you can't say the GOP created this "monster".I disagreed.
Oh yes, the GOP created this monster.Throughout the Obama years, Trump was the lead "birther" who loudly and repeatedly went after that issue and even boasted spending his own money to hire investigators in Hawaii, remember? The GOP leaders made sure they encouraged it by merely being silent, because--as McConnell openly stated--the GOP's only agenda was to defeat Obama and his policies. Fast forward to a year ago when all the election posturing began. Trump started mouthing one ugly thing after another and most GOP "leaders" stayed quiet because they thought this will be a nice little attack dog to have.I added:
The GOP is fucked up, which is what now people like Lindsay Graham are worried about. But, those worries are too late after all their fucking up for short term political gains.
Yes, this GOP primary has revealed all the ugliness of America. In a way, I am happy that the ugliness, which many of us have been talking about, has been exposed instead of it being hidden away in the dark corners.
And more ... Chris Christie endorses the Donald.It is significant not because Christie is wildly influential but because "His endorsement signifies that Donald Trump is becoming an acceptable risk to the GOP establishment."(http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/2016/02/chris_christie_endorses_donald_trump_will_others_follow.html)The 63 million voters, and the Republican Party are not only the accused, and history will condemn them to the worst possible hell.
A few days ago, before the SC/NV events I think, I told the friend that the Donald becoming the prez is a high probability if he gets the GOP nod. My logic is this way:if it becomes Trump v. Sanders, I can easily imagine Americans spooked by "socialism" and voting for Trumpif it becomes Trump v. Clinton, I can easily imagine Americans hating Clinton enough to vote for Trump
