Obviously, I agree with Andy (and with Bill Kristol) and many others: Trump should go. Of course, I never thought Trump should have been the nominee in the first place, in no small part because, as I wrote last night, I always believed the gargoyle on that tape is the same man we’ve seen all along. I’m honestly shocked by how many people are shocked by this “revelation.”
Already, Trump’s surrogates — official and unofficial — are demanding unity around the nominee. For instance:
@JonahNRO Republicans need to learn how to win- this is political warfare not the prom queen election. Dems stand behind theirs no matter! — Autry (@Autry) October 8, 2016
Now, this line of argument hasn’t meant much to me this year. I’m not a Republican operative and it’s not my job to be a cheerleader, particularly when cheerleading would require lying. Party loyalty can ask too much and all that.
But, for a great many Trump supporters, party loyalty has been everything: “Remember the pledge!” “Support the nominee!” “The Court, the Court, Forever the Court!” “If you’re not for Trump you’re for Hillary!”
These exhortations are essentially the soundtrack of my year.Read the rest from Jonah Goldberg HERE.
