EYE would like to thank Donald Trump for defining the republican party for who/what they really are

All the Presidents Men
Hey, Republicans!  This is your guy.
Republicans who stood by Trump through the Muslim ban and “grab ‘em by the pussy” and a million flirtations with white supremacists got us here. They got us to the KKK and neo-Nazis joining together and marching on Charlottesville confident that they had an ally in the White House. They got us to the president of the United States of America both-sidesing white supremacist violence and complaining that anti-racist counter-protesters failed to get a permit.

Paul Ryan, you own this. So does every Republican in the House.
Mitch McConnell, you own this. So does every Republican in the Senate.
Statements about how disappointed you are won’t cut it. Statements about how inappropriate it was won’t cut it. You own Trump until you put real distance between yourselves and him, not just mushy words.
There can be no more pretenses.
And here in the heart of Trump Country – where people cheer the reality TV star’s hateful rhetoric – we place less emphasis on competency and far more emphasis on whether or not the candidate will back our God, our race and our beliefs – no matter how stupid and misguided they might be.
Never mind that this way of thinking has left us last in all things good and first in all things bad, as our former, resigned-in-disgrace governor once said.
We just keep whipping that dead horse.
He is exactly who we thought he was

Own it.   

Let us pray for Heather Heyer.
