The hits just keep on coming for GOP [residential nominee Donald Trump, with a popular conservative writer calling the presidential race “over” following the release of a video of Trump gloating about sexually assaulting women.
Appearing on CNN with host Michael Smerconish, Trump advocate Scottie Nell Hughes — who appears to be the only Trump supporter willing to go on the record and attempt to defend the indefensible — said she strongly disapproved of Trump’s comments, but said she can’t stand the idea of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as president.
Turning to Crystal Wright from ConservativeBlackChick.com, the host asked, “What I’m hearing here is what she’s saying, and I think what a lot of trump supporters are saying, is it doesn’t matter what he does. It doesn’t matter what he says. The thought of Hillary being president is so abhorrent ‘I am hitching myself to his wagon regardless.’ Is that it?”
“I don’t think it’s that black and white,” Wright replied. “I think it does matter what Donald Trump said and, as I tweeted yesterday, I think this is the death knell in his campaign.”
Admitting that she also has no desire to see Hillary Clinton as president, she went on to to say the latest revelation about Trump should be the end of the road for him..
“The problem with Donald Trump, the reason why this comment is a punctuation mark on the narrative that he hates women is because isolated incident after isolated incident, we find Donald Trump saying awful things about women,” she explained. “It comes off the heels where he wanted to get down in the mud at the debate with Hillary Clinton.
“He cannot pivot away from this nonsense and talk about policies,” she continued. “Unfortunately this is coming in the ninth inning. I’m not happy about it. I will not vote for her, but in many ways it looks to me like the race is over.”
“I don’t know,” she added resignedly.

Beto O’Rourke calls for a ‘war tax’ in release of health care plan for veterans
The Democratic presidential candidate uses his eighth policy announcement to focus on an area that he prioritized in Congress.
Democratic presidential candidate Beto O'Rourke on Monday morning released a plan to improve the lives of veterans, returning to an area of priority during his time in the U.S. House for his latest 2020 policy rollout.
In keeping with measures he supported in Congress, the plan calls for a "responsible end" to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — reinvesting $1 out of every $2 saved in veterans programs — and the creation of a Veterans Health Care Trust Fund for each future war. The fund would be paid for by a "war tax" on households without service members or veterans.
Conservative Ben Shapiro tweeted something many found offensive — so now he’s calling his critics ‘garbage’
Right wing "thought leader" Ben Shapiro appeared today to say not using the "N" word is nearly impossible as he defended conservative, pro-gun teen Kyle Kashuv, one of the Parkland survivors who just had his acceptance to Harvard rescinded over his racist remarks, which included repeated use of the "N" word.
To be clear, Shapiro denies that's what he meant.
Here is Shapiro on Twitter, in what many took as him appearing to call not using the "N" word – in Kashuv's case, repeatedly, over and over and over again, "an insane, cruel standard no one can possibly meet."
