|America: Make Trump Go Away|
Can't we make this presidential race just stop?
It's easily the worst in American history, thanks to Donald "Cheetos" Trump.
The best thing about it is how the Republican Party is imploding before our eyes. And, it's a beautiful sight.
It's richly deserved, of course. The GOP sold its soul to the racists, bigots and sexists decades ago.
Trump is the ugly personification of years of race-baiting by Republicans. And, he's taking the party down with it.
The Republican rats are fleeing the sinking ship of Trump.
Even Paul Ryan, the Republican Speaker of the House, will no longer defend or campaign with Trump. Of course, the Congressional tea-baggers are throwing their Lipton's tea-bags at Ryan.
Conservative pundits from the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and New York Times have all bailed on The Donald.
Former Russian chess champion Garry Kasparov said Trump reminds him of Vladimir Putin.
Another good thing about his election is that Oregon is not a battleground state and we aren't barrel- bombed with negative advertising the way they are in Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania.
But that bar is so low, we're still stuck in the muck of a endless commentary and media hype.
No major newspaper or publication, outside of the National Enquirer, has endorsed Trump, so far.
Even papers in Arizona and Ohio, that always endorse a Republican, have spurned The Donald. I guess we finally do have a "liberal media" now. Who knew?
Of course, newspaper endorsements are no longer worth the paper they're printed on, but it does give an indication that Trump is not preferred by most people with brains.
Which means the millions of Americans who back Trump are not the brightest bulbs around.
And, yes, some of them are deplorable.
