Republicans Are Jumping Off The Trump Train Like Rats Off A Sinking Ship (UPDATE)

Republicans are now beginning to withdraw their endorsement of Donald Trump after The Washington Post published a 2005 recording in which Trump speaks about women in vulgar terms.

Such profiles in courage these people are.

And so it begins...

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert (R) Herbert, addressing the recording of Trump, said he would vote for Trump...


Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) told a local television station...

"I'm out. I can no longer in good conscience endorse this person for president. It is some of the most abhorrent and offensive comments that you can possibly imagine."

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman (R) called on GOP nominee Donald Trump to drop out of the presidential race telling The Salt Lake Tribune....

In a campaign cycle that has been nothing but a race to the bottom — at such a critical moment for our nation — and with so many who have tried to be respectful of a record primary vote, the time has come for Governor Pence to lead the ticket,

Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) who has already said he would not vote for Trump in November, also called on Trump to drop out...


Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Co.) called on Trump to step aside...

"For the good of the country, and to give Republicans a chance of defeating Hillary Clinton, Mr. Trump should step aside. His defeat at this point seems almost certain and four years of Hillary Clinton is not what is best for this country. Mr. Trump should put the country first and do the right thing"

Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.) called for Donald Trump to drop out of the presidential race, breaking her campaign-long silence on the Republican presidential nominee...

This is disgusting, vile, and disqualifying. No woman should ever be subjected to this type of obscene behavior and it is unbecoming of anybody seeking high office"

Former New York governor George Pataki, who ran for the GOP nomination last year, said he was “horrified” by Trump’s “poisonous mix of bigotry and ignorance” and called on him to relinquish the nomination.

Rob Engstrom, the national political director of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, said Trump should step down “immediately.

The Dam is breaking. Updates Coming.

UPDATE: 10/8/16 2:21pm:

Utah’s senator Mike Lee...

If anyone spoke to my wife or my daughter or my mother or any of my five sisters the way Donald Trump has spoken to women, I wouldn’t hire that person. I wouldn’t hire that person, wouldn’t want to be associated with that person, and I certainly don’t think I’d feel comfortable hiring that person to be the leader of the free world.

I guess Utah all decided to go first.
