Romney rips Trump "What he communicated caused racists to rejoice & vast heart of America to mourn"

Romney rips Trump "What we heard is now the reality...there may commence an unraveling of our national fabric"


Krugman: Trump Is Making Caligula Look Good.

For one thing, Caligula did not, as far as we know, foment ethnic violence within the empire. For another, again as far as we know, Rome’s government continued to function reasonably well despite his antics: Provincial governors continued to maintain order, the army continued to defend the borders, there were no economic crises.

Finally, when his behavior became truly intolerable, Rome’s elite did what the party now controlling Congress seems unable even to contemplate: It found a way to get rid of him.


The fact is that white supremacists have long been a key if unacknowledged part of the G.O.P. coalition, and Republicans need those votes to win general elections. Given the profiles in cowardice they’ve presented so far, it’s hard to imagine anything — up to and including evidence of collusion with a foreign power — that would make them risk losing those voters’ support.


So the odds are that we’re stuck with a malevolent, incompetent president whom nobody knowledgeable respects, and many consider illegitimate.If so, we have to hope that our country somehow stumbles through the next year and a half without catastrophe, and that the midterm elections transform the political calculus and make the Constitution great again.



"Mom, tell me about 2016"

Trump: It's Ok, They Have A Permit...


THIS is the flyer that brought together "fine people"aka Nazis/white supremacists-Trump is defending



Banner drop at Trump Tower - women aren't afraid to call out white supremacy.

A brave young woman. Braver then the members of the republican party.


Both Sides?

Q: Have you talked to Trump directly yet? - Heather Heyer's mom: "I have not, & now I will not"

Q: Have you talked to President Trump directly yet?

Heather Heyer's mom, Susan Bro: "I have not, and now I will not."

"i hadn't really watched the news until last night, and I'm not talking to the President now, I'm sorry, after what he said about my child"

"I saw an actual clip of him at a press conference equating the protestors like 'Miss Heyer' with the KKK and the white supremacists."

"You can't wash this one away by shaking my hand and saying I'm sorry."



Dear Trump Voters: Youre a Bunch of Idiots

Dear Trump Voters: You’re a Bunch of Idiots
Face it. It’s a train wreck top to bottom. For America, and for conservatism. The sooner we pull the plug on this charlatan, the better.
by Matt Lewis

Dear Trump Voter: I told you so.


Whether Trump is obfuscating about Russia, failing to specifically condemn racism and white nationalism in Charlottesville, Virginia, opining about the beauty of Confederate memorials, or attacking fellow Republicans (the list is long and includes Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Sen. Jeff Flake), his administration is an utter disaster for the GOP and the cause of conservatism.

This is especially amazing when you consider the GOP controls all levers of power (talk about missed opportunities!), the economy seems to be humming along, and (knock on wood) Trump’s foreign policy of peace through saber-rattling is, for now, working.

“Now look, I realize that a lot of good Republicans voted for someone other than Trump in the GOP primary. Further, I realize that Trump lost the popular vote in the general election. So I don’t want to paint with too broad a brush when I say that you were warned about this man—and you ignored our warnings. We were right; you were wrong.”

“The masses, it turns out, sometimes are asses. Sometimes the people who actually pay close attention to politics know more than the disgruntled populists and nationalists who are willing to gamble on the future of this great republic—and on the reputation of a conservative philosophy that goes from Aristotle to Burke to Buckley—in order to boost a reality show host. You elected your guy, and look where it got us.”

“Congratulations, or something.”
