There is one absolute worst reason to vote for Trump. Ironically, it is also the best reason to support his candidacy: you are being told not to. As an American, being told not to vote for someone should make you really, really angry.
We are putting far too much energy into explaining the collapse of the Republican Party. It’s not complicated. Let’s begin where the end of the GOP starts: Republicans want Clinton to win. Donald Trump is the excuse, not the reason.
It’s embarrassing to think about the shoddy roster of national leaders who will grace Cleveland and Philadelphia this summer. Some of them will eventually make their way to Washington as Cabinet members, advisors, and sycophants for a new administration. Some are already entrenched.
I am not going to waste anybody’s time going on about the Clinton-Comey-Lynch circus. We knew how it was going to turn out. Paul Ryan’s protests won’t change anything. We knew that the GOP House would be outraged. Nothing will come of that either, except for another opportunity to see how things work when the cards are stacked.
Many people I talk with have settled for a half-hearted, laissez-faire attitude towards the political stupidity of this campaign season. Donald Trump’s “Pocahontas” jab at Elizabeth Warren is one of the dumbest examples yet of the abusive, irrelevant antics we tolerate because we don’t want Hillary Clinton to be our next president.
