Anyone crazy enough to think Trump is qualified to be President is too crazy to be his VP
...Trump is a demagogue of the first order. He constantly confuses insult with logic and he constantly tries to delegitimize his opponents and their victories. Those in the establishment who embrace him will find themselves delegitimized after this debacle. Their theme of "Vote for the jerk, it's important" will be the toughest sell of their lives.
Here’s what Will wrote about Trump’s potential running mate. This was my “Samson moment.”
Ted Cruz’s announcement of his preferred running mate has enhanced the nomination process by giving voters pertinent information. They already know the only important thing about Trump’s choice: His running mate will be unqualified for high office because he or she will think Trump is qualified.
The very act of thinking Trump is qualified to possess the nuclear launch codes of the United States is enough to disqualify anyone from any high office. And what are we, the unensorceled, to do to prevent the man from ascending to office? Really, we don’t have to do anything. The country is not insane enough to elect him.
But those under Trump’s sway aren’t just going to go away on their own. They are going to blame the rest of us for causing him to lose, which in turn will bring a whole brood of vipers, biting insects, and venomous spiders out from under their rocks to feast on our flesh for a generation while they find the next “malleable” reality star to promote for their own profit. None of the blame game antics are remotely true, but it’s the narrative....
