Let’s make this clear, Americans.
Trump was smeared mercilessly not by Democrats, which we all expect since he’s a Republican, but by his own party including, I remind, you Mitt Romney who Trump endorsed for President last election cycle.
There is nothing wrong with drawing distinctions between candidate positions, even within one’s own party. In fact that’s the point of a nominating contest. But claims that someone has dropped out when they didn’t, that someone else has slandered the Bible when they didn’t, that you’ve received a “voter violation” on what looks like official government stationary (alleging a mythical offense, possibly a criminal offense) for not showing up at the polls, that someone is endorsed by and supports the KKK when their family has myriad Jewish members and not only did they not support the KKK David Duke never endorsed him and more are not legitimate campaign tactics.
