‘Dangerous’ Trump: 50 key Republicans sign letter warning against candidate

An open letter released on Monday and signed by 50 fixtures from decades of Republican Pentagons, state departments, White Houses and treasuries rejected Trump’s “alarming ignorance” of basic international affairs, his competence at understanding US national interests, and his temperament.

    I want Trump in charge of the nuclear codes.

    These “50 fixtures” are part of the problem and Trump is the solution. The fixtures are too stupid and “fixated” to realize that their criticism is in fact an endorsement of the need for a Trump presidency.

      Trump himself has said so in response. Even if Trump is as badly beaten as Barry Goldwater in 1964, his candidacy portends the same degree of political realignment as Goldwater’s.

        You haven’t been paying attention:
        On ’64, there was still a difference between the GOP and the Dems of the time were actually to the right of the current GOP.
        Since then, both have metastasized/merged into a uniparty, and no matter who gets elected, the status quo remains sacrosanct.
        Trump may fix that, but in order to do so he needs to:
        1. Get elected.
        2. Fire/dismantle many federal agencies, and prosecute many, many current federal employees.
        If he can’t do (2), an article V COS is in order, and then…

    Where were these concerned ‘Fixtures’ back in ’08 when a complete unknown was running for president?

      The fix was in.
      McCain chose Palin as his “fall guy” to sink his chances but she promptly set out on a fire breathing winning campaign which scared the hell out of his crowd until they cornered her and got back on the losing track.

      There should be a rule that no sitting senator can run for president or accept being chosen as a vice presidential candidate.
      Sure, there have been great presidents from the senate, but the field today is monumentally corrupt.

    The American public will now understand the extent to which these two main ‘parties’ are in cahoots. When push comes to shove, when the possibility of real change appears on the horizon, these cronies stand shoulder to shoulder to protect their common, narrow interests. And if, on the outside chance, Trump is elected, I’m quite sure an attempted assassination could then be in the works.

      “attempted assassination”
      What utter nonsense.

    They’re key alright. As in donkey.

    These are the same brilliant experts who told us that Islam is a wonderful Religion of Peace that’s been hijacked by extremists.

    What America really needs is a President who never takes any advice from these clowns on anything.

  • FactsWillOut

    I would like to volunteer to be a “Trump Brown Shirt” and help round up these traitors.

  • 50 jerks.

    Thus reinforcing my decision to leave the party I was associated with for forty years.

    They’d rather have Hillary as President. Not Trump. She’s one of them. According to the Constitution, you don’t have to be a politician to run for President. You don’t have to have any relevant experience either. Look at Obama. No executive experience at all.

    50 fat old greedy corksmokers who’ve been sucking off the Public’s teat for so long they’re addicts. They are the first people Trump should shit-can.
