I can't avoid feeling the exact same way.

Like that GOP convention slogan a few cycles back: You Built It.

YOU did, Kristol.
YOU did, Steve Schmidt.
YOU did, Rick Wilson.
YOU did, John Kasich.
YOU did, Mitt Romney.
YOU did, Kevin McCarthy.
YOU did, Omarosa.
YOU did, Steve Bannon.
YOU did, Reince Priebus and Michael Steele.
YOU did, every single one of you GOP talking heads and “recovering” pols with your book deals and blogs and TV shows.
And, you, too, Nicolle Wallace. You helped, too. And every one of you sniveling partisans who are probably absolving each other of any guilt because you do whisper your revulsion of him and your mea culpas in the cloak room, but you’re right there gazing at him for photo ops as though you damn near wanted to drop to one knee and propose marriage.

You rode right along with it and didn’t do a think to stop it. But many of you helped and contributed and supported and encouraged and campaigned and strategized toward exactly this kind of result, starting decades ago. If you worked to further the republi-CON agenda and world view at any point in the last 40 years, this - THIS is all yours. YOU helped make this happen.

I remember that. Somewhat vaguely, but I do remember that.

The briefing they had just left, they were described as looking really shaken.

Very nice quote.

That was a President with class.

Well, only time will tell with these folks.

They’re with our side regarding trump, NOW.

NOW they’re with us. Because donald has stunk up the room so badly that they had to step away, formally and publicly.

But I sure wouldn’t take that (or them) to the proverbial bank. Only time will tell if they really mean it, if they really have renounced this VERY bad political positioning and comfort-the-already-comfortable mindset they’ve espoused for most of their lives.

We’ll have to see if they’ve REALLY faced up to and accepted how wrong they’ve been all along, about their cold-hearted money-grubbing ideology of pure craven short-sighted selfishness, or if all that disgrace just disappears when trump finally does.

"...fluffers like you..." !!!!! ROFL!!!!!

OMG! What a fabulous description for Lindsey!

SIT DOWN Lindsey! On your fainting couch or whatever will hold you up (or maybe a few of your voters?).

About calimary

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.
