ABC News: "Conservative Writer George Will Drops out of GOP Over Trump." Oh.

"This is not my party," he says.

Except: It is his party. It's the party that gets built when you spend decades exploiting fear and bigotry.

I just don't understand who these jokers think they're fooling by pretending that Donald Trump and his supporters aren't "their party." Fuck yes they are your party. Just because Trump prefers a bullhorn to a dogwhistle doesn't make him not part of your party.

This is the truth with which Republicans (or ex-Republicans) like Will refuse to reckon: I don't actually give a flying flunderton whether your nominee puts your ghastly policies in nicer words. The effect of the policy is still the same.
