Cut ties to Trump, big donors urge RNC

NY Times - cut ties to Trump, big donors urge RNC. This bit is rich:

To an elite group of Republican contributors who have donated millions of dollars to the party’s candidates and committees in recent years, the cascade of revelations related to Mr. Trump’s sexual conduct is grounds for the committee to cut ties with the party’s beleaguered standard-bearer, finally and fully.

“At some point, you have to look in the mirror and recognize that you cannot possibly justify support for Trump to your children — especially your daughters,” said David Humphreys, a Missouri business executive who contributed more than $2.5 million to Republicans from the 2012 campaign cycle through this spring and opposed Mr. Trump’s bid from the outset.

OK, so you had no problem justifying your support when Trump said he'd build a wall along the Mexican border, and make the Mexicans pay for it by confiscating cross-border remittances?

You had no problem explaining to your children what you liked about Trump's attacks on the family of a dead US muslim soldier?

More broadly speaking, you felt fine letting your children see you support candidates who advocate transvaginal ultrasounds, striking nonwhites off the voter lists, and taking medical insurance from 20 million people?
