Trump and the GOP deserve each other
A well known NFL coach once said that “you are what your record says you are.” That statement should be kept in mind when voters assess Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
The sudden outpouring of concern from Republicans after the release last week of more examples of his scurrilous behavior makes me wonder why those who say they fear having to explain Mr. Trump’s misogyny to their wives and daughters did not feel similarly vexed when the candidate assailed Mexicans, Hispanics, Muslims, AfricanAmericans and the disabled.
Why weren’t they just as upset when the constitutional role of the press was assaulted by Mr. Trump?
While I agree that Mr. Trump’s 11-yearold statement of “who he is” is appalling, there are much more recent — and just as appalling — examples of why he is manifestly unfit to be elected dogcatcher, let alone president.
The Republican Party and Mr. Trump have a symbiotic relationship: They deserve each other.
