which clearly the left does not learn
And yet it isn't just "the left" that is critical. Let us look at some of the remarks made by those on Trump's own side of politics.
Ted Cruz described Trump as “a serial philanderer”, an “amoral pathological liar”, and a “braggadocious, arrogant buffoon”.
John Kasich, Ohio governor: “Nothing that has happened in the last 48 hours is surprising to me or many others … It’s clear that he hasn’t changed and has no interest in doing so. As a result, Donald Trump is a man I cannot and should not support. The actions of the last day are disgusting.”
Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts and 2012 presidential nominee: “Hitting on married women? Condoning assault? Such vile degradations demean our wives and daughters and corrupt America’s face to the world.”
Jeb Bush, former governor of Florida : “As the grandfather of two precious girls, I find that no apology can excuse away Donald Trump’s reprehensible comments degrading women.”
OK, the above are all failed presidential candidates who might be expected to bear a grudge but one man who doesn't have an axe to grind is Arnold Schwarzenegger who has said: “For the first time since I became a citizen in 1983, I will not vote for the Republican candidate for president. Like many Americans, I’ve been conflicted by this election – I still haven’t made up my mind about how exactly I will vote next month … But as proud as I am to label myself a Republican, there is one label that I hold above all else – American. So I want to take a moment today to remind my fellow Republicans that it is not only acceptable to choose your country over your party – it is your duty.”
Now whether Trump's opinion of someone being fat or ugly is right, it is not correct for a person seeking the highest office in the land to use such language. Call it political correctness if you like but to me it seems a sure way of turning away a large sway of potential voters.
Still, he might yet win for all that. People might be willing to overlook his unsuitability simply because they don't want more of the same. Either way, I'll be glad when the election and inauguration is over. US elections seem to go on for ever .
