Heaven knows, I am no fan of Donald Trump. I have expressed my distaste for the man more than once. I believe a Trump presidency would be a disaster for America and a nightmare for the US led West … the only thing is: I think a Hillary Clinton might be just as bad, possibly even worse.
That’s why I sincerely hope that some people with big, Big, BIG money get behind someone, like General (retired) “Mad Dog” Mattis and run a big, strong, HUGELY well funded third party campaign aimed at blowing both Mrs Clinton and Mr Trump out of the water and onto the political dung heap where they both belong.
It seems to me that the US Republican Party had a good chance, 12 to 18 months ago, to unite behind a sane, sensible, relatively moderate conservative ~ not a nitwit like Ted Cruz, for heaven’s sake ~ and push him or her (I liked the sound of President Carly Fiorina) to victory, but they chose to let the ridiculous US primary process run its course and Mr Trump now is the “peoples’ choice.”
Now, I’m afraid, I share the view of this editorial cartoonist …
… and I suspect that the Republicans are doing a lot more harm than good to the US body politic. Mr Trump’s millions and millions of loyal (and misguided in my view) supporters will rush to a judgement the GOP will regret.
… I still like “Mad Dog” for Top Dog!
