O'Malley: Trump 'hijacked the Republican Party’s nomination'

'Former Democratic presidential candidate Martin O’Malley said American voters need to defeat Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump at the polls to restore international credibility.

“I was in Ireland about seven weeks ago. They are following this election very, very closely, deeply concerned that a fascist candidate would have hijacked the Republican Party’s nomination,” the former Maryland governor said in an interview with John Catsimatidis.
“And we need to repudiate this guy on Election Day in order to restore our credibility in the world."

O’Malley said people who depend on the U.S. “are really scratching their heads at how Donald Trump could have gotten so far."

“I’ve told them be cool, fear not, the American people will figure this out on Election Day, and I believe Secretary Clinton will succeed,” he said.

O’Malley said he thinks support has consolidated around Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton after the first two presidential debates of 2016.

“It’s my sense, John, after those first two debates that Democrats started talking more to each other, to their neighbors about their support for Secretary Clinton, and that’s what every election comes down to,” he said.

O’Malley added that Clinton isn’t a perfect candidate, but the choice on Election Day, he said, is between fascism and freedom.'

1. The hijacking of the republiklan party says a lot about trump - and

it says everything about the republiklans who allowed the hijacking to happen...from aynryanrand to McConnell to chaffetz to issa to preibus to Gingrich - from ayotte to Toomey - from Johnson to blunt - from Rubio to mccrory - from pence to McCain, and everyone in between..crap shooters..

remember when they said they would control trump once they won the WH - oops...something NOT SO funny happened on the way to the forum.....

Congratulations Madam President....

Now lets hand her the house and the senate...be well all..

3. They need to change their primary system and

nominating procedures if they want to avoid this in the future. They don't need rogue candidates any more than we do.

Democrats need to keep our delegate and super delegate system, to encourage more states to have closed primaries, and to do away with the caucuses in states that have them. This is up to the states, but they should look at this.

O'Malley is a good man. I would be happy to see him as President someday.

4. I love Martin, but the GOP wasn't hijacked.

They courted the zealots & bigots & loons, certain they could control them . Most of the GOP is as bad as Trump, they just have a filter. Maybe they aren't all grabbing pussy, but they sure are trying to control it, with their all men panels discussing women's reproductive rights.

Fuck 'em all.
