Election 2016

These Republicans Are Outraged By Trump. Also, They’re Voting for Him.

esquire.comThe gang over at Tiger Beat On The Potomac has put together a helpful list of the most perfect political cowards in the United States Senate—that is, those Distinguished Gentlemen From Wherever who deplore what He, Trump has been saying about the nation’s judges in general, and Judge Gonzalo Curiel in particular, but who likely will support the presumptive Republican nominee anyway. Here’s a fairly typical bit of crawfishing from North Carolina’s Richard Burr. From TBOTP:

“I don’t think there’s a place for the comments that were made,” said Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.). Asked whether Trump’s comments might make Burr reconsider his endorsement, he replied: “If they were inconsistent with things we’ve seen up to this point in the election, I would tell you it might. But I think we’re all sort of used to remarks being made that we don’t expect.”
