He has accused President Obama of lying about his American birthplace.
He has forgotten he knew who David Duke was.
He has condemned John McCain and other POWs for not living up to draft-evading Trump’s standards of what a war hero is—not getting captured in the first place.
He has called Mexicans “rapists” and lied about getting Mexico to pay for a big, beautiful wall to keep those rapists out of our country.
He has attacked a federal judge born in Indiana by calling him a “Mexican.”
He has said countless horrible things about women.
He has said we should punish women who get abortions.
He has mocked a disabled reporter.
He has enthusiastically embraced a Russian thug who has ordered the murder of reporters.
He has called Pope Francis “disgraceful.”
He has suggested Ted Cruz’s father was involved in killing John Kennedy.
He has invited a hostile foreign government to spy on Hillary Clinton on his behalf.
He has suggested doing away with the Geneva Conventions.
He has said “NATO is very obsolete.”
He has expressed a strange and disturbing interest in using nuclear weapons.
He has promised to ban all Muslims from entering the country.
He has said he would intentionally kill the families of suspected terrorists.
He has said our military is a “disaster.”
He has smeared U.S. troops by haphazardly accusing “soldiers” of stealing money in Iraq.
He has attacked the mother and father of a fallen American soldier.
He has said the father of that fallen soldier had “no right” to attack him.
He has handled what he thought was a genuine Purple Heart medal like it came out of a Cracker Jack box.
He has said he “always wanted” a Purple Heart.
He has lied with such audacity and frequency that fact-checkers are applying for disability.
He has said and done all this and much, much more. And he has said and done such things without the slightest urge to apologize or seek forgiveness from the gold-plated God he says he worships. But now things are different. He may need to get down on his cowardly knees in Trump Tower—Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell, Jr., at his side—and beg the Almighty to forgive him for this:
He can be a racist. He can be a bigot. He can be a misogynist. He can make fun of disabled people. He can embrace authoritarian thugs. He can insult war heroes and disparage our military and Gold Star families and treat a Purple Heart like a trinket. He can tell lies at light speed. He can demonstrate breathtaking ignorance about the world. But, by God, he has gone too far by withholding his blessing from a white Republican from Wisconsin.
