McMorris Rodgers disappoints

I was a significant contributor to Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ first fund-raiser for her first term at the Condon home. I thought we needed more Republican women in office since men messed up the country so much. The only thing I requested of her (I am a longtime supporter of the Peterson Foundation. Pete Peterson was commerce secretary under Nixon) was to balance the budget and address our draconian debts and liabilities that threaten our nation.

She did nothing in this regard to date and rapidly fell in line with the catastrophic Bush-Cheney administration. It became clear she was just another political hack in D.C.

Donald Trump fits all the criteria in the DSM-V (American Psychiatric Association) text for Narcissistic Personality Disorder and its companion Anti-Social Personality Disorder. He is a pathological liar and ignorant.

Some principle Republicans have opposed Trump, which is what anyone with any integrity would expect. True to form, McMorris Rodgers has not. I used to respect Gov. Christie and Speaker Ryan but absolutely no longer do since these cowards have refused to clearly stand up to Trump.

There is no Republican leadership. The Republican Party has turned into a white nationalist, bigoted, racist, ignorant vehicle. Trump says what they believe in secret. To turn the nuclear codes over to Trump is an abomination.

I will be voting for Clinton and Pakootas.
