Progressives: GOP Old School Danforth Denouncing Prez Trump Is Disingenuous

Here's a debate that we skipped because it doesn't really matter in the lives of Kansas City residents . . . However, GOP hand-wringing on Prez Trump is mostly a ploy that ignores their basic policy agreement and mostly gets into a debate over style. Roundup:

Ex-GOP senator on Trump: 'Our party has been corrupted by this hateful man'

Former Republican Senator John Danforth has launched a stinging rebuke of President Donald Trump, describing him as "the most divisive president" in history and accusing him of "corrupting" the Republican Party. Writing in The Washington Post on Friday, Danforth, who represented Missouri from 1976 to 1995, argued that Trump has repeatedly violated the principles on which the Republican Party was founded.

Maybe mr danforth can explain just what a political party is? Is it a group of people at the party headquarters building in Washington, D.C. Or it the millions of voters across the country that decide who gets elected ? Trump was honestly the winner of the GOP primaries
As for the democrats, that party screw Bernie sanders over big time. And I believe he would win the general election
So who or what exactly is a political party?

The GOP started down the Racist Road with Nixon's Southern Strategy back in 1968. You cannot welcome Strom Thurmond (the guy who SUPPORTED lynching) into yur Party and pretend that you are shocked to find racists there!

^^^ hey Phil, Democrats kept Senator (and former KKK leader) Robert C Byrd more recently than the GOP had Strom Thurmond. Hillary Clinton called him "a mentor" and Bill Clinton delivered the eulogy at his funeral. Are you hypocritical or just ignorant?
