I have never been for Trump and I have never been #NeverTrump, but this election is terrible and this election is over.
Hillary Clinton is the next President of the United States.
I have been and will probably always be #mehTrump. I will vote for the guy, but this is becoming harder to say every day.
When he loses, I am blaming Trump primary voters, 16 other GOP candidates, talk show hosts, Republicans and Americans… in that order.
He was never going to beat her, everyone knew this.
I will vote for the guy mostly because I think Hillary Clinton will appoint people against my world view to the Supreme Court.
Hillary’s SCOTUS picks will lay at the feet of everyone who pushed him in the primary and those who couldn’t drag him over the finish line.
“He’s a better option than Hillary Clinton,” Brooks said Monday.
Even though Brooks (who supported and campaigned for Ted Cruz in the Republican presidential primary) said Monday he would vote for all Republicans on the ballot in the November general election, he would not explicitly say he would vote for Trump – even though Trump is a Republican on the ballot.
Asked why he was being so coy, Brooks said, “I am quite confident that the general public knows enough about Hillary Clinton and enough about Donald Trump to make an informed decision without any opinions by me.”
Brooks said his foremost concern with the election just under a month away is the impact Trump will have on down-ballot races. Republicans currently hold the majority in both the Senate and the House of Representatives but the question is if the GOP can maintain those advantages.
“I’m fairly confident that we will keep the House,” Brooks said. “The Senate is a toss-up. How Donald Trump goes determines to a large degree who ends up in control of the Senate. The better Donald Trump does, the better our chances of keeping the Senate. The worse Donald Trump does, then better the Democrats’ chance of capturing the Senate.
“A lot of our senators are in damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don’t positions. If they endorse Donald Trump, they lose a bloc of independent and Republican voters who don’t like Donald Trump. If they don’t endorse Donald Trump, then they risk losing the support of Donald Trump supporters. Either of those two possibilities, if they come to fruition, help the Democrats capture the Senate.”
Whatever baggage comes with Trump should come as no surprise to voters, Brooks said.
“Everything that we have seen about Donald Trump over the last three or four weeks and everything we will see should not be a surprise to any American voter,” he said. “The details may be a surprise but the overall scene should surprise nobody.”
The idea here is to provide a check on President Clinton with a Republican House and Senate, nothing more.
Trump and company are working to make sure this doesn’t happen.
This is not how anything works.
This will NEVER happen. As Trump dies at the top of the ticket, he will take down people down the ballot.
This is a suicide mission.
Trump supporters are now being conned. Period.
