Perhaps the faction of the GOP eager to either castigate or NOT support Trump is confused…… I am saying this with a level of generosity because I want to assume the best of intentions.
First, there will be no third party candidate. We have two candidates, Hillary Clinton on the left and Donald Trump on the right. Gary Johnson and his side kick, although they might be former governors and considered “heavyweights” by some pundits used to fantasy and light, he is not a factor to most of the electorate who would likely say “Gary who?”
So anywho…… this morning I watched as yet another phlegmatic Republican attempted to self flagellate on Morning Joe……. A show that is spending its time now making amends to their corporate gods for seeming to be in the tank for Trump just a few short weeks ago. Trump doesn’t visit much anymore….
So……. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., says he’s not a big Trump supporter and it will be a choice between the “lesser of two evils” for him unless there is a third party candidate. Coburn lists a failed political process, no trust in the status quo and lack of leadership in both parties as the reasons for the choices this election cycle.
Great….. Just great…… you ever hear ANY democrat dishing on Hillary? From her ugly $12,000 coat that looks mysteriously like the fabric was taken from the bag of an old Kirby vacuum cleaner in 100 degree weather, in the middle of the summer to her frequent lies and obfuscations….. we hear nothing.
But the first thing asked on the interview with Coburn, by the Mr. Self Proclaimed Conservative himself —- Joe Scarborough is “Are you proud of the Republican Party?” Funny I have never heard him say to a Democrat “Are you proud of the Democrat Party?” When the Obama follies were going on for the past 7 years + , I somehow never heard any Democrat castigated about the situations.
I did note that Coburn brought up the fact that somehow we have on the Democrat side of the aisle a person who refuses to follow the law, Clinton, as the “standard bearer for the Democrat Party. One of the other guests of Morning Joe asked Coburn whether or not Trump had the “character” …….perhaps this was the most bizarre question ever since the standard bearer for the Democrat Party is not only a liar but in possession of the most corrupt character in recent history. From her fictional immigrant relatives to her combat duties landing a plane in sniper fire she makes me feel “a whole lot tard”
Now on to Rep. Collins……
Republican U.S. Sen. Susan Collins says she’s open to voting for presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton over Republican frontrunner Donald Trump – but admits it’s unlikely.
Collins made the comment in a tweet posted Thursday, days after she called on Trump to apologize for questioning the credibility of the federal judge of Mexican heritage presiding over a lawsuit against Trump University.
Oy vey……. She’s kvetching about Trump University. But did you know that Bill Clinton was a university chancellor? I didn’t either until last week…… .Moreover, Smiling Bill was paid $16 million by Laureate International Universities to be their “honorary” chancellor.
Sounds like a “big deal university” right…….. Turns out Laureate International Universities is the parent company of Walden University, a mostly online, for-profit diploma mill that is facing the same kind of civil suits and fraud allegations as Trump University. Funny how the media and Rep. Susan Collins seems to be uninterested in this story.
