Well done, you made a correct statement.

Trump is Republican in name only, was a Democrat funder and supporter for most of his adult life.

He has very little loyalty to the party, and more than willing to fight with people in his party.

Beyond the basic framework of the United States, and his rejection of socialism and egalitarianism, Trump is nothing like Ted Cruz.

Not sure why Trump would feel any pressing need to be loyal to a party that wouldn't give him a wall even when they had a majority in both houses and which even now is fighting nail and tooth against funding for such, even though this is probably going to be their last chance ever.
The Republican Party itself is RINO.

Banana Republic-cans still have a fighting chance to make significant course corrections.

Duhh, actually no, they dont.  That is why Paul Ryan and many others are  not coming back.

The bananas are rotting in the belly of the ship and the Rats are multiplying day-by-day.

Who is the "Weakest Link"? Victoria Morales?  Roger Stone? Idio-ump?  Pence?

Pence may be the weakest link since he appears to have the least amount of spine.

Why was he even sitting in that room with idio-ump Schumer and Pelosi?

That was significantly bizarre and telling about the 2nd in command. YIKES!

Just as Bush dont look quite so bad relative to idio-ump, idio-ump will not look quite so bad related to Pencil Spine/Brain.

Its all relative and banana republic-cans relatives are getting stranger and more fermented by the day.

Wasn't Mexico supposed to pay for it?  I mean, if the funding portion was just a shameless empty, hollow campaign promise, lets just call the whole thing a big pandering attempt, akin to locking her up and draining the swamp.

IS Pence RINO or Chirstian Supremacist?

"In Pence, Trump has found an obedient deputy whose willingness to suffer indignity and humiliation at the pleasure of the president appears boundless.

....When Trump comes under fire for describing white nationalists as “very fine people,” Pence is there to assure the world that he is actually a man of great decency. When Trump needs someone to fly across the country to an NFL game so he can walk out in protest of national-anthem kneelers, Pence heads for Air Force Two.

....“With his oath of office, Vice President Pence became . . . the most successful Christian supremacist in American history.” And, the authors argue, in pursuit of his lifelong ambition to become president of the United States, Mike Pence has abandoned the values he claims to hold dear.

“Although Pence presents himself as a deeply moral man,” they write, “his record indicates both a ruthlessness and a comfort with aggression that belie this pose.” Thus, he is willing to tie his political future to President Trump, “a man whose immorality in the form of lying, cheating, and deceiving in every aspect of his life, from his marriage to his businesses, had made him a living exemplar of everything that Christianity and conservatism abhorred.”.....

This is what Trump says


"What about the alt-left that came charging at, as you say, at the alt-right?” Trump said. “Do they have any semblance of guilt?”
“I’ve condemned neo-Nazis. I’ve condemned many different groups. But not all of those people were neo-Nazis, believe me,” he said.
“You had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists,” Trump said. “The press has treated them absolutely unfairly.”

“You also had some very fine people on both sides,” he said.

This is what you are a willing actor in
President Trump defended the white nationalists who protested in Charlottesville on Tuesday, saying they included “some very fine people,”

Definitely a conservative with a lot of compassion that is demonized and misreresented:


A good listen. Common sense government!
