An Open Letter to Trump Supporters and the GOP Establishment


Recommended Posts

It hasn’t been a good week for relations between us, has it? Make that more like a month. I’d like to dial the temperature down a bit and take a look at where, and who, we are. You have every reason to be frustrated and angry with our current politics. Only on occasion do our leaders do something useful; only slightly more often do they stop something terrible. But screaming that we’re mad as hell and not going to take it anymore – while cathartic — doesn’t take anyone anywhere.


The establishment side of this discussion hasn’t always covered itself in glory. Senator McCain should not have referred to Trump’s supporters as “crazies” and then tried to pass it off as the normal rough-and-tumble of politics. It was wrong, and he should have said so.


The problems with this back-and-forth are fourfold:




We need to beat Hillary in 2016. We will do so only if we work together and add to our numbers, while dividing our opposition. Let’s have a vigorous clash of ideas, then come together and win the country — both in our culture and at the ballot box.


Thanks for listening.
