The conservative case against Trump

His unfitness starts with basic issues of temperament. It encompasses the race-baiting, the conspiracy theorizing, the flirtations with violence, and the pathological lying that have been his campaign-trail stock in trade. But above all it is Trump’s authoritarianism that makes him unfit for the presidency — his stated admiration for Putin and the Chinese Politburo, his promise to use the power of the presidency against private enterprises, the casual threats he and his surrogates toss off against party donors, military officers, the press, the speaker of the House, and more…Trump is actively campaigning as a Caesarist…And given his mix of proud ignorance and immense self-regard, there is no reason to believe that any of this is just an act…In sum: It would be possible to justify support for Trump if he merely promised a period of chaos for conservatism. But to support Trump for the presidency is to invite chaos upon the republic and the world…To Trump himself, there is no patriotic answer except “no.”

“We reject an all-powerful state, whether it’s in the hands of a leftist technocrat or a bright-orange alt-right neo-fascist.”

JFC. Truly one of the dumbest people alive.
