  • Is he being honest?

        Although  we’re still hearing a lot of fussing and fuming from Republican Party leaders about Donald Trump, I think they are going to come to terms with the fact that, like it or not, he is going to be their party’s nominee for president.  They will grudgingly begin to support him as the only alternative will be Hillary Clinton getting elected.

        Trump – with no political experience, no real presidential qualifications, and no lack of contempt toward Muslims, women, and anyone who dares to disagree with him – will be the nominee of the once great Republican Party.
