EDITORIAL >> What’s next after Trump advances

To the editor:

Some final thoughts on the recent presidential primaries:

I actually feel sorry for the candidates like Mike Huckabee, John Kasich, Christ Christie and all the other experienced governors who knew how to run a state, but got bumped out of the presidential primaries by Senators Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.

The entire state of Florida knew about Rubio’s credit-card fraud. Why did the “drive-by media” virtually ignore Rubio’s character flaw?

And most voters knew Cruz was born in Canada, causing widespread doubt about Cruz’s presidential eligibility. The governors should sue Cruz.

What a waste. No wonder Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee. At least now Speaker Paul Ryan can see his Atlas runs for President Ayn Rand fantasy come true.

Things look worse for the Democrats. FBI Director James Comey is just waiting for his “prompt” to release information about his investigation into the Hillary Clinton email controversy.

This prompt will likely come from Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who is probably waiting for Hillary to eliminate Bernie Sanders at the Democratic Con-vention in late July.

With Sanders out of the way, Grassley and Comey can defame Hillary with FBI charges and practically guarantee a win for the Republican presidential candidate.

Even if Hillary wins the November election, the Electoral College may vote against Hillary in December. Congress may also disqualify her Jan. 6, 2017.
