Don't worry. Donald has lots of prominent Americans, representing a broad and diverse spectrum of America, who've endorsed him and can be expected to campaign for him. Here's just a few of those who are likely to stump for Trump. With these folks in his corner, how can he lose?
When we go to cast our votes for president in November, the fundamental question is whether we want a president who will, by and large, share the policies and vision of Barack Obama, or one who in addition to being a hateful, uninformed, groper of a fascist who would destroy our position in the world, fundamentally rejects them.

In our times the spirit of conflict has overpowered the spirit of cooperation. And it is clear that it was on one side of the battle lines that this view of politics as a kind of war gained ascendancy.
Facebook has a nifty new feature: we can now search for "Friends Who like Donald Trump" and do with t...
