This moron is indifferent between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, which means he doesn't care whether Clinton or Trump appoints the next three (or more) Supreme Court justices. Can you say "Trump Derangement Syndrome"?
I am scared—not of terrorists, but of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and what he is doing to this country. (“Donald Trump plays the fear card at the Republican convention,” editorial, July 21)
And I’m amazed that despite his lying continuously, bigotry, fear mongering, belittling of immigrants, nastiness, crassness toward women, deceitful business dealings and economic ideas that could lead us to a depression, the biggest deal of the Republican National Convention was that Trump’s wife plagiarized part of her speech from Michelle Obama.
And the irony of stealing from the wife of President Obama, the man Trump hates, should make me laugh. But with Trump, I’ve lost my sense of humor.

Note from KBJ: Get used to saying "President Trump," Susan. I had to put up with your president for eight years. You're going to have to put up with mine for eight years.
As many of you know, I was a supporter of Ted Cruz. I'm sure I voted for him in his Senate bid in 2012. But during the present presidential campaign, I got to know him better, and I didn't like what I saw. Cruz is a religious fanatic; his wife Heidi is in bed with Wall Street; he lies about his rivals (e.g., Ben Carson); and he's smug to the point of insufferability. Now I understand why Cruz is so hated in Washington, even (especially?) by members of his own party. Many prominent Republicans have concluded, as I did yesterday after Cruz's speech, that he has no future in the Republican Party. I'm tempted to add "at the national level," but I honestly believe that he will have serious primary opposition in 2018 when he runs for re-election. Texas has many solid conservatives who can beat him. Can you say "Rick Perry"?
Don't underestimate the strategic brilliance of Donald Trump, who played Ted Cruz like a violin yesterday. (Cruz still doesn't understand what happened to him.) I have said all along, and I continue to believe, that Trump is five steps ahead of everyone else. I can't wait for him to start playing with Hillary Clinton. He will defeat her handily in November. See here for another person's take.
