Md. Repub­li­cans line up for Trump

FROM: GE­ORGE KA­PLAN COLORA

At their pre-con­ven­tion meet­ing in An­napo­lis on May 14, Mary­land’s Repub­li­can of­fice hold­ers — in­clud­ing our own U.S. Rep. Andy Har­ris — fell in line to be­come syco­phants to Don­ald Trump, all in the name of party unity. We can only hope that Gov. Larry Ho­gan con­tin­ues to have the in­tegrity to re­sist this lem­ming-like charge into the abyss.

In the past year, Mr. Trump has shown him­self to be vul­gar, ju­ve­nile, ig­no­rant, nar­cis­sis­tic and dis­hon­est; he has no re­gard for the Con­sti­tu­tion, his­tory, facts or science; and he has no co­her­ent poli­cies on any­thing. Iron­i­cally, the GOP could sur­vive four years of Hil­lary Clin­ton, but it will not sur­vive four years of Don­ald Trump.

We vot­ers have good rea­son to crit­i­cally eval­u­ate the char­ac­ter of any­one hold­ing or run­ning for of­fice, at any level, who claims that Mr. Trump is fit to be pres­i­dent of the United States. Ac­cord­ing to the Bal­ti­more Sun, Mr. Har­ris said that he is “101 per­cent en­thu­si­as­tic” about Trump.

‘Nuff said.
