Following up on an editorial he wrote for USA Today, conservative Naval War College professor Tom Nichols laid out a compelling case on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” why no self-respecting Republican should pull the lever for Donald Trump in the 2020 election.

In his column, Nichols, wrote, “I don’t care if Sen. Elizabeth Warren is a mendacious Massachusetts liberal. She could tell me that she’s going to make me wear waffles as underpants and I’ll vote for her. I don’t care if Sen. Kamala Harris is an opportunistic California prosecutor who wants to relitigate busing. She could tell me that I have to drive to work in a go-cart covered with Barbie decals and I’ll vote for her. I don’t care if Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders is a muddle-headed socialist from a rural class-warfare state (where I once lived as one of his constituents). He could tell me he’s going to tax used kitty litter and I’ll vote for him.”

Using that as a springboard, Nichols explained on MSNBC on Friday morning why Donald Trump has failed as a president and is likely a danger to the country.

“I’ve had it with the what-aboutism arguments that were mostly coming from the right,” he said of fellow conservatives. “I’m one of the people that has basically said — I do think the president has gotten worse.”

“I mean to some extent, all kidding aside, I’m kind of concerned about the president,” he continued. “Because he seems like he has become, you know, that this is getting to him in some ways and he’s becoming unstable.”

Asked, “What do you mean by this, this is getting to him?” Nichols continued, “Just the pressure of governing and running and keeping up.”

“I think I have always proceeded from the assumption that Donald Trump never thought he’d win the election and he has been treading water ever since without knowing what he’s doing,” he elaborated. “I have said for years that I think he’s in fear of the Russians, I think the Russians hold a lot of his financial secrets and he’s very worried about that.”

‘So I think, you know, we’re really in an unprecedented moment where, you know, I am, again, as long as we have a person that I don’t think has any issues with the Constitution, or with a hostile foreign power, you know, that’s my exit ramp until we can normalize and stabilize our national politics,” he stated.

Trump's total haul for August, when he got a week's worth of free media from the Republican convention, was just $61.7 million. The campaign spent almost all of it, $61.2 million.

The campaign still has about $900,000 in debt. His cash on hand is just $121 million in the bank.

Published

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was blasted after claiming that Democrats were the real hypocrites for "starting" the battle for the courts buy eliminating the filibuster on judges after Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) held up dozens of judicial appointments. It was the worst ever seen in 60 years.

"Being lectured by Democrats about how to handle judicial nominations is like an arsonist advising the Fire Department," Graham tweeted Sunday. "Democrats chose to set in motion rules changes to stack the court at the Circuit level and they chose to try to destroy Brett Kavanaugh’s life to keep the Supreme Court seat open. You reap what you sow."
