Today Donald Trump went from a threat to the US policy to a threat to all mankind. No longer are Americans worried about him compromising our global image, now we get to worry about him ending humanity.
According to a Washington Post article, Republican Leaders let out a collective “OH SHIT!” today as their party candidate, Donald Trump admits he doesn’t understand what the big deal is about nukes. (Yikes)
This information was made public by MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough during his show.
As the top leaders in the Republican Party shit their pants, other Republicans turn their backs on the defecation process. When the Trump Crazy Train switched to the express track, many high profile Republicans jumped off. Here are a few that have decided that the Grand ‘Ole Party isn’t so grand right now:
Meg Whitman – Not only did the Hewlett Packard CEO endorse Hillary, but she took the time to call Trump a demagogue.
Rep Richard Hanna became the first GOP congressman to officially back Hillary Clinton.
Doug Elmets (Former Reagan Spokesperson)
Mark Salter (Former Top Advisor to John McCain)
Robert Smith, former judge on New York’s highest court, the Court of Appeals
Richard Armitage, George Bush’s former treasury secretary endorsed Hillary
Republican Advisor Maria Comella admits Trump is media savvy, but unqualified to be POTUS.
And to add more fiber to the shitfest, the fact that Republican women are switching to endorse Hillary opens an old wound that the Good ‘Ole Boy party isn’t female friendly. Republicans have been criticized for the glass ceiling within the GOP and for neglecting to introduce laws that protect women’s rights or safety.
The fact that Trump is miffed on the concept of Mutually Assured Destruction or MAD is maddening. It’s not Mutually Probable Destruction. It’s not Mutually Maybe Destruction. It’s assured. It’s definite.
It’s not shocking that Trump’s mind is boggled by nuclear warheads, as his confused spokesperson, Katrina Pierson blamed Obama for the death of U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan… who died in Iraq in 2004…. ahem, when Republican President George W. Bush was in office…. Four years before Obama even announced his candidacy.
Naturally on Twitter, Pierson is the joke of the day.
Not only did Pierson rewrite history, she made history. Pierson’s comment was a turning point for Republicans. She was actually called out on her error. The years of getting away with blaming Obama for things that are outside of the President’s control is what got an irrational renegade like Trump as the lead Republican candidate. And if you examine the term renegade, it’s troublesome for Republicans…
Maybe even more telling than Republicans switching sides is that Republicans are taking pause, and considering the consequences of their actions.
The precursor to today was a 24 hour meltdown in May. Now the Trump campaign is apparently staging an intervention because of the Don has been spiraling out of control the past 48 hours… Which begs to question, how can a man who can’t even manage himself lead a nation of millions?
