Donald Trump bit the bullet on Friday and did the only smart thing he could do from a political standpoint, he endorsed the RINOs. He really had no alternative. He certainly didn’t want to be accused of having committed the same offense as Ted Cruz, of being on the other guy’s turf and failing to be the bigger man. That would have not only given the rabies-infected media more to foam about but it would also have contributed to real disunity within the GOP.
Trump would have been hard-pressed to ask for support from the hesitant members of the party if he hadn’t been willing to respond in kind. At this point he needs all of them to be lining up behind him and acting on his behalf.
We all know he doesn’t mean it and now if Ryan, who represents the exploiters that are ruining America, the forces who Trump is fighting against, should happen to lose in next week’s primary election, those who would love to fault Trump will not have the solid ground to stand on they would have otherwise. We can all hope that is the case, that Mr. Nehlen is successful in giving the Cantor treatment to Rep. Ryan.
The same goes for Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH). Trump needs a Republican Senate Majority if possible to help him get his agenda enacted so in the big picture that is more important than his distaste for supporting self-serving hypocrites. Many Americans, including Arizona voters, see McCain as the establishment tool that he is. The American people can do what politics prevented Mr. Trump from being able to do, take out the trash.
At a Trump rally in Green Bay,Trump told his his audience, “In our shared mission to make American great again, I support and endorse our Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan. He’s a good man. And we may disagree on a couple of things, but mostly we agree. And we’re going to get it done, and we’re going to do a lot of wonderful – he’s a good man!”
Trump also endorsed both McCain and Ayotte on Friday, saying, “I hold in the highest esteem Sen. John McCain for his service to our country in uniform and in public office, and I fully support and endorse his re-election. … We’ll work together.”
“I also fully support and endorse Sen. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, working hand-in-hand; we will grow our majority in the House and in the Senate. We need that. We got to get things done. Arm-in-arm, we will rescue the nation from the Obama/Clinton disaster.”
That’s three more potential hazards for his campaign now cleared from his path.
