It has gotten through to The Donald’s idolaters that their cheesy Walmart Mussolini is going to lose to a highly beatable candidate. They are not taking it well.
Some are content to throw tantrums and blame Trump’s failure on conservatives who wouldn’t sell out to a left-wing Democrat running as a national socialist. Puddle-deep stormtrumper Sean Hannity blew yet another gasket on his radio show:
“All this garbage from you Never Trumper jerks out there,” Hannity shouted. “I’ve had it. By the way, that’s more unfinished business. November 9th, I have a lot to say about all of you.”
If Trump were to win, Hannity would be too busy crowing like the witless rooster he is to denounce the marginalized NeverTrump contingent. But even the dumbest guy on radio knows that won’t happen. He probably even knows that the handful who didn’t allow themselves to get swept up in the stampede that is now plunging off a cliff into irrelevance are not to blame for Trump being the most conspicuously awful candidate a major party has ever fielded.
At one point, Hannity apparently had the dump button hit on him after he said Donald Trump isn’t “freaking perfect.” Following up the delay, he yelled, “I’m pissed!”
That was when he went after [Evan] McMullin, though he didn’t actually say his name.
“Who’s this idiot that’s running third party that’s killing Trump out in Utah,” the Fox News star exclaimed. “Who put him up? What was it? The Bush people? The Romney people?”
Mainstream Republicans Bush and Romney are now to be regarded as devious enemies who conspire in the shadows to prevent Trump from making America great again.
Hats off to McMullin for getting under the skin of the wannabe fascist apparatchik Hannity.
Some are taking the impending Trump train wreck even worse. Fellow radio host Joe Walsh, a former congressman, believes that if they can’t put Trump in power at the ballot box, they should do it by force:
On November 8th, I'm voting for Trump.
On November 9th, if Trump loses, I'm grabbing my musket.

This is entirely consistent with Trump’s attempts to discredit our democratic institutions, his announcement that he will accept the election results if he wins, and his stated intention to rule by unlawful decree if he is able to take power.
Conservatives who fail to avoid being tainted by Trumpism will have no credibility when the election is finally over and it comes time to rebuild from the ruins.
