"Rook" has some thoughts on Donald Trump.
Yesterday Donald Trump read from a teleprompter like a zombie and endorsed Paul Ryan, Kelly Ayote and John McCain – none of whom cared enough to show up. While using the ‘prompter he stayed on message and didn’t insult anyone but HRC. He had his staff and children surrounding him. A few of them may have been armed with clubs, just in case.
But it has become more and more obvious that Trump is uncontrollable for any period of time beyond a few hours or maybe a day. Trump will be Trump. He will continue to lose his temper at the drop of a hat. He will then lash out in the worst possible ways to strike at whoever, be they friend or foe, has committed the latest perceived offense against him. He will be loud, uncivil, rude, insulting, threatening, bullying and (most important of all) unpresidential. He will never be a statesman or diplomat. Should he get elected, as unlikely as that seems now, he would make Obama’s “apology tour” seem like the good old days. The thought of his dainty fingers anywhere near the “football” makes my blood turn to ice.
The GOP must declare him disqualified on ethical grounds, or for mental and emotional instability, or in the interests of national security, or because he’s not actually a Republican or a conservative.
We still have time to jump-start a new candidate like Newt Gingrich or John Kasich. Or move up Mike Pence and pick a new VP for him.
Just don’t do what the GOP has been doing for years, nothing! Stand up and do the right thing for a change. So what if it causes a revolt in the Trump camp, let them write him in. Maybe nobody will get to 270 and then the House decides. That would be better than what we have now. Get it done!
