    The Democrats are about to serve up one of the weakest, most vulnerable, most baggage-laden, most corrupt, most despised, most viscerally off-putting candidates in American history, and how will the Republicans respond? By rummaging through the sewers and extracting the one single person in the country who could manage to be even weaker, more vulnerable, more baggage-laden, more corrupt, more despised and more viscerally off-putting. It’s been a race to the bottom, and Republicans are winning.

    When Hillary wins the White House, it will be your fault. It will especially be the fault of his media lickspittles like Sean Hannity, but it will be the fault of his primary voters as well. You will have chosen to put a universally detested buffoon against Hillary, and the ugly results of that decision will fall on you. Whatever happens during Queen Hillary’s reign of terror, you will have yourselves to thank for it. You should get up every morning, turn on the news, catch up on the latest scandal or tyranny Hillary has visited upon us, and then go to the bathroom, look in the mirror, and say, “Thanks, genius.”

    Because it’s your fault.

    Now, let me tell you who will not be to blame: Those of us who, for reasons both moral and logical, cannot and will not vote for Trump in the general election. I’ve heard this argument over and over again. Trump fans say the Never Trump crowd will be responsible for “giving us Hillary” or that we’re effectively “voting for Hillary” if we don’t vote for Trump. But it doesn’t work that way.

    You don’t get to foist this contemptible clown on us and then blame us when he loses. We’ve been telling you for months “we will not vote for Trump, period, end of story.” Millions of other Americans – including almost every woman, minority, and young person in the country – have said the same. Millions and millions of people have said, “If you do this, he will lose because we won’t vote for him.” Yet you think you can ignore these fair warnings and send this cartoonish megalomaniac barreling into the general election, and absolve yourselves of the blame?

    Nope. Sorry. This is on you, Trump fans. This is all on you. I wash my hands of it.

    I’m not choosing Hillary when I refuse to vote for Trump in the general election. You’re choosing Hillary when you vote for Trump in the primary. You’re choosing someone who cannot win, will not win, and who the vast majority of the electorate has sworn off categorically.

    I don't think it is a given that Hillary could beat Trump.

    34 out of 35 polls (or somesuch number) taken in the past 9 months say he would lose to Hillary. Some of his losses are in double digits.

    He would not only lose to Hillary in a national general election, but will also swing the Senate over to the Dems and possibly make the House very close. He's toxic.

    Trump's statement gave me my first good laugh of the day. Likewise, Mr. Trump, if you are elected we have only ourselves to blame.

    Yep I'm sure. Just because I see an action is wrong or a statement i believe to be incorrect does not mean I support the person those things may be about. Further, you need to consider all I have said about Trump and not just those in which you personally perceive that I support him.

    I do not like Trump. I think he is a wild card and has no moral strength but neither do I like what has been done to him by the GOP. I have reached a point where I dislike the establishment as much as I do Trump. I will most likely register as an independent after this election.

    The OP article is merely a fallacious attempt to provide motivation for an excuse and to blame others.

    Lots of Republicans seem to be saying that. I honestly don't see a lot of difference between Trump and some of the personalities that are on this board and have been on this board.

    Donald has for years, repeated verbatim, talking points from Fox News and conservative talk radio.He took an idea (to build a border fence/wall) that had been a part of the Republican platform for years and made it popular.

    He repeats stuff from talk radio as though it was his idea. But Sean Hannity does that too.

    Y'all created the monster and now don't want to affiliate with him because he's shared too many family secrets.Biggrin
