Campaigning in two battleground states, Donald Trump called for GOP unity, saying it was time for Republicans to stop attacking one another.
And then, of course, he immediately starting attacking Mitt Romney, the most recent Republican presidential candidate, saying “Mitt Romney is a sad case. He choked. You know what a choke artist is? You know a guy who missed a kick, you get rid of him, right? He choked like a dog.”
Romney’s crime was saying in an interview that he worried about the moral fraying of society should Trump become the nominee: “I don’t want to see trickle-down racism.”
Apparently, Trump’s idea of unity is for everyone else in the Republican party to shut up. But Trump can continue to attack anyone he doesn’t like, including his now virtually weekly racist comments.
If anyone thought that Trump would stop acting like a two-year-old having a temper tantrum once he pivoted to the general election, they were sadly mistaken. As one Republican pollster put it “Get used to it. This is your life for the next five months.”
