HOW WERE MINORITIES SUPPOSED TO BE EXPLAINING HIM TO THEIR DAUGHTERS?:

Cut Ties to Donald Trump, Big Donors Urge R.N.C. (JONATHAN MARTIN, ALEXANDER BURNS and MAGGIE HABERMAN, OCT. 13, 2016, NY Times)

"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.

Bruce Kovner, a New York investor and philanthropist who with his wife has given $2.7 million to Republicans over the same period, was just as blunt. "He is a dangerous demagogue completely unsuited to the responsibilities of a United States president," Mr. Kovner wrote in an email, referring to Mr. Trump.

"Even for loyalists, there is a line beyond which the obvious moral failings of a candidate are impossible to disregard," he wrote. "That line has been clearly breached."

Mr. Kovner argued that the Republican National Committee should shift its attention to candidates who reflected its core values, like free markets and limited government. "I hope the R.N.C. sticks to candidates who articulate these principles!" he said.
