Leftists don’t hate Donald Trump. They are afraid of him.

Now that Marco Rubio has suspended his campaign, Donald Trump may have an open path to the magic number of 1,237 delegates needed to secure the Republican nomination.  Delusional thinking on my part?  Actually, this was a recent headline in the NY Times.

Predictably, the political right and left are in a tizzy over this prospect, but for different reasons.  On the right, it is a “moral and character issue” according to Erick Erickson, organizer of Conservatives Against Trump.  A group of conservative activists met and drafted a statement denouncing Trump but said activists declined to sign the statement or otherwise identify themselves.

Surprising that they would not all be proud to publicly stand against Trump rather than scheme against him behind closed doors.

    When it comes to the very cloudy possibilities of monetizing “Sinking Ship Rattery”, confusion likely reigns among the now naked “conservative” scribes and soothsayers who thought this day would never come. A wise man like Trump might offer a few of their top members small wages for advice. It would be a good way to ensure success by making sure to do the opposite.

    • No, it’s not in my view, Trump should not have to disown every Tom dick & Harry who “endorses” him. This Farouk sounds more like shit disturber than anything else.

        “Farouk Shami, says he suspects Trump would moderate his views if he were to become president.”
        “Moderate his views”= he’s lying. Some endorsement.

      Much closer to Donald in my view are daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, both religious Jews. Donald announced some of his foreign policy advisors, none of whom struck me as disturbing. They include Sen. Jeff Sessions and terrorism expert Walid Phares, who is a contributor to the site that published the article.
