GOP's Date for Cleveland Prom is Trump Who's Dancing With Joy — Who's Joy

Sorry, Too Late

For all my GOP friends, and yes, I have some, we feel your pain:

Great post by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), re: Her Assessment of Trump: and she is SPOT-ON.

[Quote] “Donald Trump is now the leader of the Republican Party. It's real – he is one step away from the White House.”

“Here's what else is real:”
  1. Trump has built his campaign on racism, sexism, and xenophobia.
  2. There's more enthusiasm for him among leaders of the KKK than leaders of the political party he now controls.
  3. He incites supporters to violence, praises Putin, and, according to a columnist who recently interviewed him, is “cool with being called an authoritarian” and doesn't mind associations with history's worst dictators.
  4. He attacks veterans like John McCain who were captured and puts our service members at risk by cheer leading illegal torture. 

“In a world with ISIS militants and leaders like North Korean strongman Kim Jong-Un conducting nuclear tests, he surrounds himself with a foreign policy team that has been called a “collection of charlatans,” and puts out contradictory and nonsensical national security ideas one expert recently called “incoherent and “truly bizarre.”

“What happens next will test the character for all of us – Republican, Democrat, and Independent. It will determine whether we move forward as one nation or splinter at the hands of one man's narcissism and divisiveness.”

“I know which side I'm on, and I’m going to fight my heart out to make sure Donald Trump’s toxic stew of hatred and insecurity never reaches the White House.” [Unquote]

As for me, I totally agree with Sen. Warren’s factual assessment of Mr. Trump and for the record, everything she posted is a matter of public record about what Mr. Trump has said regarding those elements listed above.

In a word, what Sen. Warren presented are facts that cannot be disputed or replaced by an opinion or view or feeling about Mr. Trump. Facts matter and he owns he own words.

My question is simple: “What are you prepared to do to stop this man from ever sitting in the Oval Office?”

Staying at home, or not voting, or voting for him are not answers to a very serious forthcoming problem should he win in November. Think hard and serious about that prospect.

Thanks for stopping by.
