Forget, if you can, about grabbing and groping. The case against him and for her goes far beyond the sleaze factor.
Here’s your eye-opening brick-by-brick summary of how this campaign looks right now. For Trump supporters, it’s brutal. Most of these articles have been posted to my Facebook page over the past two months, but seeing them all strung together like this is stunning.
Never has any major party candidate been so thoroughly repudiated by so many competent observers.
Every story here includes links to the sources.
- The Arizona Republic
“Since The Arizona Republic began publication in 1890, we have never endorsed a Democrat over a Republican for president. Never.
Hillary Clinton is the only choice to move America ahead.”
- The Cincinnati Enquirer
“The Enquirer has supported Republicans for president for almost a century … Our country needs calm, thoughtful leadership to deal with the challenges we face at home and abroad. We need a leader who will bring out the best in all Americans, not the worst.
That’s why there is only one choice when we elect a president in November: Hillary Clinton.”
- USA Today
“The Editorial Board has never taken sides in the presidential race. We’re doing it now. … Donald Trump is, by unanimous consensus of the Editorial Board, unfit for the presidency.”
- No Fortune 100 CEOs Back Republican Donald Trump
From the Wall Street Journal: “Democrat Hillary Clinton has 11 contributors and 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney had far more.”

“The latest estimate shows Clinton’s economic plan would add $200 billion to the national debt over the next decade, while Donald Trump’s would add $5.3 trillion – or 26.5 times as much as Clinton’s – according to a new report from the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.”
- Military Officers for Clinton
“While only a tiny portion of military officers reach the rank of admiral or general, an even smaller sliver earn three or four stars.
Fifteen percent of Mr. Trump’s retired officer supporters are among those most senior officers.
Mrs. Clinton’s backers include nearly twice that number of highest-ranked officers.”
- Dallas Morning News Endorses Democrat For President For First Time In Over 75 Years
“For all her warts, she is the candidate more likely to keep our nation safe, to protect American ideals and to work across the aisle to uphold the vital domestic institutions that rely on a competent, experienced president.
Hillary Clinton has spent years in the trenches doing the hard work needed to prepare herself to lead our nation.”
- No Former Members of the White House Council of Economic Advisers Support Trump
“In a WSJ (Wall Street Journal) survey, no former members of the White House Council of Economic Advisers—spanning eight presidents—openly support Mr. Trump”

“For the third time since The Atlantic’s founding (in 1857!), the editors endorse a candidate for president. The case for Hillary Clinton.”
- Foreign Policy magazine
“In the nearly half-century history of Foreign Policy, the editors of this publication have never endorsed a candidate for political office. We cherish and fiercely protect this publication’s independence and its reputation for objectivity, and we deeply value our relationship with all of our readers, regardless of political orientation.
It is for all these reasons that FP’s editors are now breaking with tradition to endorse Hillary Clinton for the next president of the United States.”
- 50 G.O.P. Officials Warn Donald Trump Would Put Nation’s Security ‘at Risk’
“Fifty of the nation’s most senior Republican national security officials, many of them former top aides or cabinet members for President George W. Bush, have signed a letter declaring that Donald J. Trump ‘lacks the character, values and experience’ to be president and ‘would put at risk our country’s national security and well-being.’
Mr. Trump, the officials warn, ‘would be the most reckless president in American history.’”
- Here are all the major newspapers that have endorsed Hillary Clinton for president
From Business Insider: “This presidential election may have the most lopsided batch of newspaper endorsements the US has ever seen.
While Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has garnered the support of a long list of editorial boards, her Republican rival Donald Trump hasn’t received any.”
Whew. Quite a list, and it’s only a small fraction of what I could post!
How could any breathing, sentient voter still be supporting Trump?
