This is no longer about partisanship. No longer about party. No longer about principle. No longer about who's right or who is wrong.
This is about surviving Donald Trump.
I watched his press conference today and, sorry, that was the most embarrassing thing I have ever witnessed. Forget the policy. Forget the attempts at political points. Forget all of it.
That was a 747, nose down plane crash.
During that presser, Donald said that you people (the press) will all say tomorrow that Donald was ranting and raving.
Well, I would call what I witnessed the very definition of ranting and raving. It was textbook ranting and raving. To say it was ranting and raving would be good reporting.
To you Republicans....really? You really think that was a Presidential performance. Seriously? I mean it. It was awful. It was pathetic. It was...oh hell, I need more adjectives. This was just not good for the image and future of the United States.
I used to think that we'd have to tolerate Trump because if he was gone, it would just mean President Pence. And since that would probably be just as bad policy wise, might as well deal with Trump.
I no longer think that. I now prefer President Pence - because I value order and not chaos. Policy difference, not policy danger.
Donald Trump is not capable of being President of the United States. He is not capable of being normal. As he would say, it's a disaster, believe me.
Some serious leadership is needed here - and yet the Republican silence tells us that they never really were a country first type of Party. They are only looking to extract whatever they can underneath the cover of a madman.
It is beyond any level of logic I can come up with. We are in big trouble.
