Republican establishment wants to purge party of Trump

"A political party has a right to ... secure its borders," asserts the Post's George Will, "a duty to exclude interlopers." Will wants The Donald "excommunicated" and locked out of all GOP debates until he kneels and takes a loyalty oath to the nominee.

"Marginalizing Trump" carries no risk of "alienating a substantial Republican cohort," Will assures us, for these "Trumpites" are neither Republicans nor conservatives. Better off without such trash.

Trump should tell the GOP, in the neocons' favorite phrase, "All options are on the table." And that includes the Samson Option.

Trump should tell the GOP that if it disrespects him and his followers, then he is prepared to do as did the biblical hero Samson, when, blinded and mocked by the Philistines, he pushed the pillars apart and brought the temple down upon the heads of them all.

The Republican establishment will understand that.

I think Trump is great, he is single-handedly going to cause the republican party to crash and burn this election. The repubs should purge him from their party ASAP so he can get on with his independent run.:)

It's inevitable.

Maybe so, but the "establishment" Republicans have become a marginalized sector of the party with very little influence. Even if they did possess the power to kick Trump out of the tent, about one third of their electoral base would follow him out the door and tell the establishment Republicans to kiss their HUGE!!! asses.

There are two "establishments" in the GOP. The Hard right and the moderates. Trump fits neither.

Right now Trump is a good thing for this country no matter what his motive is.

I believe him when he says he wants to take care of the poor.
I believe the GOP when their track record proves they only care about taking care of the rich.


Go Trump!

Trump is the favorite of the extreme right-wing of the Republican base because they don't really give a damn about policy. Their political motivation isn't based upon ideology, but upon faith in a hero messiah who will magically turn reality into a reality tv show.

Actually, Republicans who support Trump support him merely because he expresses their resentment that our culture isn't as dominated any more by white, Christian, hetero men.

With Republicans again beating the war drums, the only way middle class and poor Americans can avoid being killed in and paying for another GOP/MIC war is to not elect a Republican as President.......or anything else for that matter!
