Trump campaign dead in wa­ter?

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - DENNY FREIDENRICH La­guna Beach, Cal­i­for­nia

Watch­ing last Sun­day night’s pres­i­den­tial de­bate, I couldn’t help but think I was wit­ness­ing a ‘dead man walk­ing’ — and not be­cause of the lewd, dis­gust­ing com­ments Don­ald Trump made about women in 2005. For the sec­ond time in a row, Repub­li­can can­di­date Trump flunked the com­man­der-in-chief test. Ba­si­cally his an­swers about Rus­sia, Aleppo and Syria in gen­eral not only were unin­spir­ing, they were woe­fully un­der­whelm­ing.

No pres­i­den­tial can­di­date has lost two de­bates and then gone on to win the gen­eral elec­tion. The big ques­tion for Repub­li­cans coast to coast now is this: How much longer will you re­main loyal sup­port­ers of the Don­ald? Given the trickle of de­fec­tions that be­gan last Satur­day, Mr. Trump did lit­tle dur­ing the de­bate to calm the po­lit­i­cal wa­ters. My guess is there will be a mass ex­o­dus this week.

Dead men can’t talk, so I’ll say it: The Trump campaign is over.
