Some of the best Trump slams come from Republicans

There are about 8 of us who were having drinks in Itaewon (foreign section of Seoul, South Korea). None of us are in the military, but a few of us (like me) were. 5 of the group are Republicans, though not really in the modern Republican sense. They're more Rockefeller, Ford, Dewey, Kassebaum kinds of Republicans
We got talking about Trump and none of them are happy with him, though one or two said they might consider voting for him.

There were some really great lines, but these were my three favorite comments about Trump the nominee

1. Using movie metaphor
I really like the movies House of 1,000 Corpses and the Devil's Rejects. The movies are really well made and House is really creepy. Captain Spaulding is a great character and so are the Fireflies. But, damn, I really don't want Capt Spaulding, Mother Firefly, Grampa Hugo, Skunk Ape Wife, Tiny and Baby as President, Vice-President and in the frickin cabinet.
I agree about both movies and his using those characters as similes for Trump, Palin and the rest of the clowns that have lined up behind him

2. Also a movie metaphor
Change the white face to orange and his hair to orange-red instead of red and I wouldn't be surprised to hear, "Oh Yes they float Georgie. They float. And when you're down here with me, you float too!"
His Tim Curry as Pennywise impersonation was quite good.
If you don't know the reference: Pennywise the Dancing Clown, Stephen King's It

3. And the best
If the Republicans planned on f*cking throwing this election, they should'a just said so and we could have just voted for Clinton, Sanders or O' Malley and saved us this bullsh*t, time and money.
