Twenty years ago Republicans supported impeaching the President of the United States for lying under oath in office and having an affair in the Oval Office. Now that same party is on the verge of nominating a serial philanderer and pathological liar. At the very least the GOP owes Bill Clinton an apology.
Bobby Jindal, in September last year, said Donald Trump was unfit for office and should be stopped from getting his hands on the nuclear button. But now he says Trump is better than Hillary Clinton.
Donald Trump openly blamed George W. Bush for 9/11. He embraced the 9/11 truther nonsense. Now Ari Fleischer, George W. Bush’s press secretary, is declaring he will vote for Trump over Clinton.
Other Republicans are doing the same. They are descending into tribalism with little difference between their Republican tribalism and the white nationalist tribalism that Trump has pandered to.
Shame on them. This is not a game.
