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.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.
