Daily Trumpeter: Does Trump embody Republican values?

If the GOP leaders - Ryan, McConnell, and our own McCain - are supporting Trump, then they support, or at least accept, his values, right?

Trump's mockery of a disabled person "showed me his soul, his heart." That from the father of "Grace", a disabled youngster. The devastating TV ad has been released replaying Trump's imitation. Check it out here.

Racism and bigotry define Trump - and his supporters. AZBlueMeanie provides lots of evidence.

The GOP has no values. Tom Friedman (see following post) trashes the Republican party for its total lack of principle, its willingness to sell itself and the country. Here are a couple of snippets.

... we know just how little they are attached to any principles, because today’s Republican Party’s elders have told us so by (with a few notable exceptions) being so willing to throw their support behind a presidential candidate whom they know is utterly ignorant of policy, has done no homework, has engaged in racist attacks on a sitting judge, has mocked a disabled reporter, has impugned an entire religious community, and has tossed off ignorant proposals for walls, for letting allies go it alone and go nuclear and for overturning trade treaties, rules of war and nuclear agreements in ways that would be wildly destabilizing if he took office.

Our own Sen. John McCain comes across like the Alfred E. Newman of the Congress (aka Mad Magazine) - What, Me Worry? Friedman does not spare McCain.

Et tu, John McCain? You didn’t break under torture from the North Vietnamese, but your hunger for re-election is so great that you don’t dare raise your voice against Trump? I hope you lose. You deserve to. ...
