**Profanity Warning, I'm a little upset, so I didn't hold back**
Well, well, here we go again. The last 24 hours sure have proven to be quite the wild ride. As the Democrats circle the wagons around Hillary Clinton to protect her against the release of the latest bunch of damning emails, the Republicans are attacking and shooting at Trump and in the process themselves. I knew this was going to be a mess, but I had hoped the Republicans would finally take a page from the Democrat Playbook. I guess I was hoping for the impossible.
The first salvo came this morning. Donald Trump was scheduled to have a rally in Wisconsin today with Speaker Ryan and Governor Walker, but Ryan has decided that he just cannot in all good conscious be seen with Trump because of how he spoke of women. Now, in lockstep, several other weak-kneed, backstabbing Republicans are taking the "high ground" and stepping away from their support of Trump. I'm so proud that Gov. Mike Pence didn't take the bait and go without Trump. Pence truly is a man of honor.
This is why I believe the Republican Party is DEAD. Those who claim to be a Republican are not interested in working together against the onslaught of the Progressive/Socialist Democrat Party. Nope, they are only interested in their own butts and are fully willing to sell out anyone they deem as "not perfect" at the drop of a hat. Well, I have a little bit of news for them....we, the American people are tired of them playing us as fools. They didn't want to support Trump since DAY ONE. They have done everything they could to bring him down, and it was ONLY when it looked as though he was winning, they decided it was best to jump on the Trump Train.
Well, we, the American voter has some news for them. Any Republican Politician who believes that we give a rats-ass about what Trump said in private that has NOTHING to do with the wellbeing of this country and that that it somehow makes him ineligible to be the President is sorely mistaken. As I stated in my previous post, yes, what Trump said was crass and foolish, BUT I can name several past Presidents who didn't treat women in the best way. Foolish words are nowhere near as appalling as actual actions. One of the worst offenders as I stated, wants to return to the White House. If that happens hide all of the interns.
Let's take a look at the sanctimonious, cowardly, asshole Republicans stepping back from Trump today.
Utah Gov. Gary R. Herbert - Donald Trump's statements are beyond offensive & despicable. While I cannot vote for Hillary Clinton, I will not vote for Trump.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) - RETRACTS endorsement for Donald Trump.
Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.) - "I cannot in good conscience vote for Donald Trump."
Rep. Martha Roby (R-Ala.) - Donald Trump's behavior makes him unacceptable as a candidate for president, and I won't vote for him.
Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) - I will not vote for Donald Trump.
Former Utah governor Jon Huntsman - Says Trump should step aside.
Former Iowa Republican Party chairman A.J. Spiker - Donald Trump should resign as the Republican nominee for president, he brags about sexuality harassing women. He is unfit for public office
Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) - "I respectfully ask you, with all due respect, to step aside."
Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) - Calls for Trump to step aside
Sen. Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) - I can no longer endorse Donald Trump.
Former New York governor George Pataki - He needs to step down.
Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt - For the benefit of the country, the party and his family, and for his own good, Donald Trump should withdraw.
Former GOP primary rival Carly Fiorina - Wants him to step aside.
Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.V.) - "The appropriate next step may be for him to reexamine his candidacy."
Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.) - “For the good of the country, and to give the Republicans a chance of defeating Hillary Clinton, Mr. Trump should step aside."
Former John McCain staffer Jeff Weaver - "Trump isn't the only one who should step down — that VP pick Mike Pence should too"
These are not pulling their endorsements, but are still taking chicken shit pot-shots at Trump:
House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) - “I am sickened by what I heard today. Women are to be championed and revered, not objectified. I hope Mr. Trump treats this situation with the seriousness it deserves and works to demonstrate to the country that he has greater respect for women than this clip suggests. In the meantime, he is no longer attending tomorrow’s event in Wisconsin.”
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker - Inexcusable. Trump's comments are inexcusable.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) - Every wife, mother, daughter -- every person -- deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) - Donald's comments were vulgar, egregious & impossible to justify. No one should ever talk about any woman in those terms, even in private.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) - "As the father of three daughters, I strongly believe that Trump needs to apologize directly to women and girls everywhere, and take full responsibility for the utter lack of respect for women shown in his comments on that tape."
Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) - "I have said before that I would not hesitate to voice my disagreement with Mr. Trump when he says something that I believe should not be part of our political dialogue. It is never appropriate to condone unwanted sexual advances or violence against women. Mr. Trump must realize that it has no place in public or private conversations today or in the past."
Sen. Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) - The comments DJT made are lewd & insulting. There is no excuse, and no room for such reprehensible and objectifying talk about anyone, ever.
Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) - As a proud husband and father of a daughter, I find Donald Trump’s comments indefensible.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-Tex.) - I am disgusted by Mr. Trump's words about women: our daughters, sisters, and mothers.
Trump opponents going after him — hard (Big deal, none of us like the first two listed anyway)
Mitt Romney leads the way here - Hitting on married women? Condoning assault? Such vile degradations demean our wives and daughters and corrupt America's face to the world.
Ohio Gov. John Kasich - Make no mistake the comments were wrong and offensive. They are indefensible.
Florida Rep. Carlos Curbelo - I'm disgusted by Mr. Trump's comments. I wouldn't want anyone speaking about my wife, my daughters, or any woman that way. It's inexcusable.
This is why I am NO LONGER calling myself a Republican. In the words of Ronald Reagan as to why he stepped away from the Democrat Party, "I didn't leave them, they left me." After this election, I will be removing myself from the Republican Party and become an Independent. I'm sick of their lies, their siding with the Democrats ALL the time, and their lack of interest in what the American people want and need from them. As far as I'm concerned, they are all the same. There is do longer any difference in the two Parties, and Donald Trump has exposed those in the Republican Leadership as the frauds they are.
Last night, Trump gave a heartfelt apology, so that should be the end of it. However, as you can see there are those who profess to be Christians who don't seem to want to forgive him. I say, "Shame on you." He admitted his foolishness in the statement and said he was sorry. It's not like it's a big surprise that Trump used to mess around with women. Here is a statement that my husband said, and I have to agree with him. Had Trump decided to run as a Democrat, not only would he have beaten Hillary in the primary, he would easily win the White House. The reason for that is because the Democrats circle around and protect their candidate NO MATTER what they've said or done. We have proof of that with Obama and Hillary. The Republicans, on the other hand, will go out of their way to help the Democrats destroy their own candidate when the political waters get a little rough.
So, as I said at the top of this post, we'll have to see how thing all play out over the next few days. However, we can all be assured that the Media, the Democrats, and the cowardly Republicans will try to beat this drum for all they can get out of it. It's up to us to not allow them to be successful in their attempt to bring down Trump and keep him from being our next President.
God Bless you, my Fellow Patriots
God Bless Donald Trump
God Bless the United States of America.
