Hardcore Republicans are covering themselves with shame by continuing their support for Donald Trump. In news story after story and political column after political column, Trump is revealed to be a racist bully. But the “religious right” just lowers its collective heads and plows on through. The Democratic candidate’s husband has been a philanderer for most of their marriage, and she is pilloried for calling the bimbos – well, bimbos.
The Republican candidate is a sexist pig – and if you think that behavior is all behind him, you’re living in a rose-colored world. But all is forgiven by the good Christians on the right. I have voted Republican in the past (sorry, Gran) because I can recognize intelligent, able people regardless of their party affiliation. I can also recognize a sow’s ear when it’s in front of me – no matter how much money it’s covered with. Sorry folks, Trump is not a silk purse.
