President Obama made his first campaign appearance with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton today in Charlotte, North Carolina. Watch and listen…

You may have noticed that I haven’t had a lot to say about the current campaign for the presidency of the United States. There is a simple reason for this. The Republicans are going to nominate Donald Trump. Let me repeat that. The Republicans are going to nominate Donald Trump.

It is difficult for me to believe that the Republicans are serious about this year’s presidential election. I mean, Donald Trump? Never has there been a nominee less qualified for the highest office in this country (or indeed, the world). Never. It angers me that the media are even paying attention to this “man.” The only reason they are doing so, and they will confess to this if you ask them, is that his antics are good for ratings.

I do not believe that even Trump himself seriously believes he will ever sit in the Oval Office. He is an egomaniac and a pathological liar. He thrives on attention and what he perceives as adulation.

The Republicans should be embarrassed. The intelligent ones are.
