Very predictable

If you've been watching the Presidential election polls, you've probably noticed that Trump is down double digits to Hillary at this point. With every utterance out of his mouth, the vainglorious bully digs himself into an even deeper vote deficit. At this moment, it is not outside the realm of possibility to imagine Hillary winning in Novemeber by the widest margin in U.S. history.

So naturally, the rats are already pointing their fingers and assigning blame for anyone but themselves and their spray-tanned idol.

Spineless coward Rush Limbaugh went on his radio show the other day and made the provably false assertion that the Republican Party was already in decline before Trump stole the nomination and thus he's suffering from the Party's woes, not failing because of his own monumental incompetence and stupidity.

A quick look at electoral victories for the Republican party show that in the last eight years of Obama malaise, Republicans have picked up more Senate seats, House seats, and state legislative seats than either party has over the past 60 years. They’ve also retaken control of both chambers of Congress and have nearly set a record for the number of state legislative chambers retaken.

That sound like a party in decline to you? Yeah. Me neither. But this is Rush we're talking about here and when it comes to Trump, he hasn't got the balls to call it like it is. He doesn't dare risk angering that noisy minority of bumper-sticker voters supporting the trainwreck candidate.

And then there's the knuckle-dragging dimwit Sean Hannity. After his shameless cheerleading and constant in-kind political donations of hours of free advertising on his program, Hannity's man-crush is crashing and burning. So Sean is lashing out at everyone who didn't put their principles in a drawer and blindly follow along to Trump's one-note pied piper routine:
"If in 96 days Trump loses this election, I am pointing the finger directly at people like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham and John McCain and John Kasich and Ted Cruz — if he won’t endorse – and Jeb Bush and everybody else that made promises they’re not keeping."

Yeah. Except that Ryan, McConnell, Graham, McCain and Kasich have all endorsed Trump. So what's the dealio, bruh?

People like Glenn Beck and others went on Hannity's show and tried to tell him Trump was a disaster, that he couldn't be trusted, that he wasn't a conservative, that he didn't have the majority of Republican voters supporting him, and Hannity blew them all off. He didn't care about Trump's nonsensical plans and ignorant policy statements. His endless gaffes and childish tantrums. Honestly, that childish nature is what I believe endears Trump to Hannity -- he seems himself in Trump, an intellectual lightweight using the power of his platform (or wealth in Trump's case) to bully others into submission.

Those of us who were Never Trump before there was a #NeverTrump, warned you Sean, Rush, Ann and others. We told you that no matter what, we weren't going to sacrifice our principles to support this pretend conservative. You guys had the chance to nominate a true conservative that the majority of Republican voters could get behind and instead you decided to put an embarrassing, divisive bozo at the top of the ticket.

I've said it all along, and I'll keep saying it -- this is your mess, you made it, you own it.
