Conservative columnist George Will has left the Republican party in response to Donald Trump's nomination. I imagine he will certainly not be the last to do so.

Courtesy of The Hill: 

Longtime conservative columnist George Will says he has left the Republican Party because of Donald Trump. 

“This is not my party,” he said during a Friday speech to the Federalist Society, according to the conservative-leaning outlet PJ Media. 

Will said he has switched his Maryland voter registration to "unaffiliated." 

When asked in an interview later what message he had for GOP voters, Will suggested they resign themselves to not winning the presidency in November. 

“Make sure he loses. Grit their teeth for four years and win the White House,” he said.

Actually since Donald Trump is essentially Sarah Palin with even phonier hair we should not be surprised with George Will's decision.

After all back in 2011 he had this to say about a Palin run at the White House: 

“The threshold question, not usually asked, but it’s in everyone’s mind in a presidential election. ‘Should we give this person nuclear weapons?’ And the answer [in Palin’s case], answers itself.”

Impossible to believe he does not feel exactly the same way about Donald Trump having access to the nuclear codes.

Which, by the way, is exactly how all of us should feel.

    I'm was surprised that he left the party having been a strong and respected republican voice.

      Will is just like tRump - a pompous jackass. He acts as though he is the smartest man on TV. Why doesn't HE run for the office, since he thinks he has ALL the answers?

      Obviously George Will has decided to put country before party. You would be surprised how many life long republicans are following suit. Your comment is fairly ignorant.

      Pretty harsh to call 6:49 ignorant under the circumstances. How many top level Republicans have admitted in the past few weeks that Donald Trump is not qualified to be President and yet they pledge to vote for him anyway?

      Well I guess you could say that, since they take the hair from his back or somewhere and transplant it!!!

      The guy that does his hair has an office in the same building as Donald and he sneaks in.

      Both of those narcissistic sociopaths are so insecure that they cannot display their "felling" hairlines. What does that say about them? Everything: They are vain, insecure and truly ugly on the outside as they are on the inside.

      PPS. This atheist is a-praying that trump picks the tramp for VP. The dill will be done.

    6. I read somewhere that his hair is a "weave". Possibly.

    I was watching a bit of the round table discussion on 'This Week' just now and listening to pro-Trump panelists talk about Clinton's high unfavorable numbers. The kept repeating the numbers and implying that both candidates are more or less equal, and that the race could go either way because people are angry and want change.

    There is no doubt that Clinton is disliked by a great number of people on both sides of the aisle. However, Trump's recent behavior and comments have shown him to be completely unqualified, ignorant, narcissistic and racist. The news this past week that his campaign is almost broke belies his claims of being such a successful and brilliant businessman, as does his continued refusal to release his tax returns. More and more Republicans are publicly announcing their intentions to vote for Clinton.

    The bottom line is this. While people may dislike, or even hate, Hillary Clinton, they are TERRIFIED of Donald Trump being anywhere near the White House. Those fears will only be highlighted during the debates when the difference between the candidates becomes even clearer.

    It's very much like when my grandmother was bitten by a squirrel back in the 1960s. She was given several rabies shots in the abdomen, which were extremely painful. As terrible as the shots were, though, the alternative was unthinkable!

      Whatever they say about Hillary, nobody can accuse her of being STUPID. Highly intelligent, knowledgeable woman. tRump is borderline crazy.

      No, Trump IS in need of a mental health check. I follow a bunch of psychiatrists and therapists on social media (I won't say why they follow me) and they are ALL very concerned about his mental health. They are too professional to publicly diagnose him via social media beyond Narcissistic Personalty Disorder (obvious to all). But they allude to other serious issues in reference to his mental health.

      With all due respect, anon 8:12, Trump is not borderline crazy. He crossed that line decades ago and is even now beyond that place known as batshit.

      How horrifying is it that someone with such serious mental health issues can actually become the Republican candidate for President?

      I also entertain the theory that he has early signs of Alzheimer's (a disease his father had). Repetition. simplistic grammar-sometimes ungrammatical sentences (that no 3rd grader would commit - but the kind aging people with word retrieval problems might make - not all of whom have Alzheimers so not proof, just red flag) aggressive late-night tweets, his childish behavior, his name-calling and mood swings, insomnia.

      I wonder why this doesn't have more press. He could address this quickly and easily with a non-invasive, realtive short (probably an hour or two) neurological assessment.

    Another big concern is how the Donald will make economic and foreign policy decisions based on what is good for his businesses, not the good of the USA. What a disaster waiting to happen.

    Then of course we will have the problem that he surrounds himself with “Yes Men”, so his little feelings don’t get hurt.

      He keeps telling everyone about his successful businesses. Why all the bankruptcies, then? Also too, REALLY wealthy people do not have to continually tell people how wealthy they are. PROVE it, Donnie, release your taxes.

      He's already said he will not relinquish control over his businesses if elected. His recent comments in Scotland clearly demonstrate that his top priority is and always will be his bank account.

      Seems to me that the information and wisdom required to sucessfully run a business has little overlap with the information and wisdom required to run an economy. One is primarily management. the other requires heavy dose of understanding politics. Maybe I don't know what it takes to do either.

      And then it appears that Trump isn't all the succesfull in running companies. According to Forbes he would have more money today if he had invested his inheritance in Index funds. (see Fortune, and other business sites). Selling his name hardly seems to provide a skill set for running an economy. Lucy

    chaos syndrome>"Like Trump, Bernie Sanders appealed to the antipolitical idea that the mere act of voting for him would prompt a “revolution” that would somehow clear up such knotty problems as health-care coverage, financial LONG YES>BUT GOOD READ:
    http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2016/07/how-american-politics-went-insane/485570/reform, and money in politics. Like Trump, he was a self-sufficient outsider without customary political debts or party loyalty. Like Trump, he neither acknowledged nor cared—because his supporters neither acknowledged nor cared—that his plans for governing were delusional.

    Trump, Sanders, and Ted Cruz have in common that they are political sociopaths—meaning not that they are crazy, but that they don’t care what other politicians think about their behavior and they don’t need to care. That three of the four final presidential contenders in 2016 were political sociopaths is a sign of how far chaos syndrome has gone."

    Now if Americans can only get their shit together and start a party where they meet each other half way on running the government with competency and stay the heck out of private citizens lives, we would be a better place. Ain't gonna happen as long as we have the so called religious right whispering crap in the Repulicans with no brains ear. Did I see somewhere that Donald Trump got saved? I thought he was more than Jesus Christ himself?

    Is calling yourself 'unaffiliated' the same as identifying as an Independent? Won't George Will burn in hell for being a God Damn Independent as several of the commentators here have insisted happens to a GDI?

    George is a little slow reading the writing on the wall. First time I heard he was running, I thought it was a joke. Prepare to be peppered with insulting tweets from Donald Trump.
    Will "tolerated" Palin, but just said "you're fired" to the entertainer with the orange coif.
