% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


To say Donald Trump has had a bad weekend would be an understatement. Trump, who normally makes the area between him and a television camera a dangerous place to be, was a Greta Garbo-like recluse yesterday, only stepping outside of Trump Tower for a moment to flash a thumbs up outside at the waiting media before disappearing back into his safe space.

There were a host of Republicans — current officeholders, former officeholders and others who either called on Donald Trump to step down and/or rescinded an endorsement. And the list is pretty big.

The list will no doubt continue to grow as these kinds of things usually snowball into something big.

Republicans who never endorsed or supported Trump, but called on him to step down:

Rep. Barbara Comstock (VA)
Rep. Charlie Dent (PA)
Sen. Jeff Flake (AZ)
Rep. Will Hurd (TX)
Gov. John Kasich (OH)
Rep. John Katko (NY)
Rep. Steve Knight (CA)
Sen. Mike Lee (UT)
Rep. Mia Love (UT)
Gov. Susana Martinez (NM)
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (AK)
Gov. Brian Sandoval (NV)
Rep. Fred Upton (MI)

Republicans who rescinded their endorsements of Donald Trump following the release of the video:

Sen. Kelly Ayotte (NH)
Gov. Robert Bentley (AL)
Rep. Bradley Byrne (AL)
Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (WV)
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (UT)
Sen. Mike Crapo (ID)
Gov. Dennis Dauggard (SD)

Rep. Tom Rooney (FL)
Rep. Martha Roby (AL)
Rep. Chris Stewart (UT)
Sen. Dan Sullivan (AK)
Sen. John Thune (SD)

Republicans on record as opposing Trump who issued statements condemning what he said or saying he should step down:

Rep. Justin Amash (MI)
Gov. Baker (MA)
Rep. Coffman (CO)
Sen. Susan Collins (ME)
Rep. Carlos Curbelo (FL)

Former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty
Former Governor of New York George Pataki
Prominent non-elected Republicans who have either withdrawn endorsements or called for him to be replaced:
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice

Also worth noting, former Governor and RNC Chair Michael Steele declared that Trump’s campaign “cannot be salvaged.”

Likewise worth mentioning is National Chair of the College Republicans Alex Smith.

Food, candy, or other consumables:
Perhaps the most devastating of all, Tic-Tacs.

Expect hear more today as it all leads up to the town hall style debate that takes place between Trump and Hillary Clinton.

    So what you’re saying is that they are homosexual and resent red blooded males. sounds funny coming from “red State” – red face :oops: :lol:

  • wiseoldlady

    Really as if NONE of them have any skeletons….!!! The NWO cabal has secret tapes on all of them.

  • Palin Supporter

    Dump Trump … everyone has them, they are called ‘FAIR WEATHER FRIENDS’ :cool: :idea:

  • Anonymous

    Yep they’re all a bunch of self-righteous hypocrites.

  • barebones

    Democrats support their candidates through thick and thin!
    Republicans desert their candidates on thin!

    Should rename the parties The Pr*cks and the P*ssies!

    It’s been reported that a new species of worm, a Trematode, has been discovered. It’s a blood sucking parasite. It’s been named Baracktrema Obamaii.

    All politicians, judges, and lawyers of any stripe, by and large, should have the word “Leech” in their title:
    Representative Leech John Doe;
    John Doe, Esq Leech;
    Supreme Court Justice Leech John Doe;
    ….. You get the idea.

    AIPAC sure got to these dumb arse people who hypocritically have likely done and said the same things as teens or in the locker rooms. Guess most weren’t jocks, just jerks, but as Judge Jeanine said:”.. boys will be boys .. ” …except the pansies who decry what Trump said, that is. The Zionist sure don’t want Trump to win, so that means more support needed from the sheeple. Too bad that actual voting won’t help since it’s all rigged, but maybe, by some miracle, Trump will win and the corrupt and evil Hil won’t be the one who will finally bring down the entire country with WW111..

  • kletus_ledbetter

    Yup, of lot of delicate panty waist politicians have turned on Trump along with a bunch of slimy weasel back stabbing new world order republicans who would rather see crook Hillary as president.

  • ernie

    Can anyone of those back stabbing a-holes who call themselves Republicans truthfully say they never said anything derogatory about woman in their life? I doubt it very much. At least Donald Trump apologized. Did those bastards??

  • jew Goy

    Thats good so when he wins he owes non of these traitors and can lock them up with hillery and obama.

  • desertspeaks

    RINO’s were always looking for an out, remember, they are ALL members of the CFR as is CLINTON! Trump isn’t a member of their club..
    Hillary defends and remains loyal and married to a rapist, Trump is alleged to have said something that may or may not be troubling to some people… Which is worse!
    further BENGHAZI, missing 6 billion @ state dept, pay to play, email, perjury, felonies all committed by hillary!

  • Ideas Time

    Good riddance. These are the people we need to get rid of as soon as Trump can get in and make voting is not rigged anymore. They people could not survive with out election fraud. They are few and we are many.

  • Болеслава

    It was vice president Biden who put the hard word on an innocent 13 year old girl in front of the whole world just last week. sorry if you missed it. the democrats are really opening themselves up big time even mentioning the words sex and trump in the same sentence. ….. it won’t just backfire it will light a fire under their whole organization that they will not extinguish. how sick are these people. Even bill clinton himself has stated his wife has eaten more pussy than he has aka illicit homosexual sex Ha Ha Ha. And she is the one going off for consentual playing around between Trump Aka normal male and some beauty queens. Get a life Democrats the more you pour your filthy innuendos out on the public the more you bring out your own filthy laundry.
