THERE GOES HIS LAST REFUGE:

Possible Trump VP pick says he supports abortion rights (JAMES OLIPHANT, 7/10/16, Reuters)

Retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, under consideration by Republican Donald Trump as a possible vice presidential choice, said on Sunday he favors a woman's right to choose whether to have an abortion. [...]

Asked about his position on abortion on ABC News' "This Week," Flynn, a registered Democrat, said "women have to be able to choose" and that women "have to make the decision because they're the ... ones that are going to decide to bring up that child or not." [...]

The Washington Post reported on Saturday that Trump is becoming increasingly infatuated with Flynn, who ran the Defense Intelligence Agency from 2012-2014 under President Barack Obama, because he believes national unrest and the threat of terrorism may demand a "tough and steady" presence on the ticket.

Advertising his own support for abortion removes the last delusion that Republican supporters were clinging to in order to differentiate him from Hillary.
