Well, no. He wrote some pretty terrible essays — as discovered by Mother Jones and others — in college and in his 30’s, that are contrary to things he now says. The Congressional Record shows some of his votes also did not agree with what he preaches. The media, if he’s the nominee, will grind him into pulp.

I must respectfully disagree with your premise he will win. Uh-uh.

He won’t win the presidency. He’s going to cause us to lose, much like he did in 2016. He’s a kook and people over 40 will never vote for him.

His promises are empty, as there’s no way in hell he can do what he says he will. Just his Medicare for All price tag is $15 trillion. Where’s he going to find that? Under a rock? Will congress give him that? Of course not.

Will I vote for him if he’s the nominee? You bet I will, but it will be an exercise in futility.

Of course, I thought there was no way Donald Trump could win, either — so I could be all wrong.
