The Washington Post has harsh words for Republican leaders who won’t criticize Trump
One month ago, conservative magazine The National Review released an article and magazine issue called “Against Trump,” an editorial team effort to sway the Republican establishment to step up their game and rid the race of the man who is arguably the most unhinged and unabashedly evil in the whole clown show, with racist policies and illegal proposals. With a slew of state wins under his belt, Trump remains in the race, and the Editorial Board of a much larger publication, The Washington Post, has released their own piece of encouragement to slow the Trump Train down. “GOP Leaders, you must do everything in your power to stop Trump,” implored the editorial team at WaPo this past week.
“The unthinkable is starting to look like the inevitable,” the piece began. See, I thought I was in a minority to be having my own fears, but having them validated by WaPo and watching win after win… it has myself and other liberal and leftist Americans feeling nervous. Hell, it’s making republicans themselves nervous, but thus far, there’s been a lazy effort to come together as a party and stop the man in his tracks. That’s what happens when the party voting body is still divided over five, five, (five, people!) men vying for the office of the Presidency of The United States.
In regards to party leadership, WaPo had this to say: “Some have spoken up over the course of Mr. Trump’s campaign, and then stepped back; others have been silent. The silence may reflect an absence of courage and also an element of calculation: There was an assumption that Mr. Trump would fade, and that confronting him would only make him stronger. The calculations have proved wrong. If Mr. Trump is to be stopped, now is the time for leaders of conscience to say they will not and cannot support him and to do what they can to stop him.”
Chris Christie, a former opponent, has coming out in favor of Trump, further stirring up an already bubbling pot.
At this rate, it’ll take a small miracle to keep the reality star and businessman off of the November ballot. In the meantime, I’ll be “reaching across the aisle” to libertarian doomsday preppers to get their input on how best to prepare for imminent disaster in the event of a Trump presidency.
