Yesterday, Brad Zaun endorsed Donald Trump. I’ll wait until you’re done laughing.
Good? No? Ok. Take your time. I know, it’s crazy, right? It was bad enough going for Scott “Teachers and laborers are kinda like ISIS” Walker but Donald “The Donald” Trump?
Here’s what we think:
Miyoko: “The gap between Senator Zaun and I is now much deeper than political party. It’s a difference of respect and dignity for service members and veterans. Donald Trump’s insults towards prisoners of war and his comparison between his time in boarding school and military service should send any politician running away. Not Brad Zaun, apparently.”
CJ: “Donald Trump’s candidacy is such an embarrassment to the United States of America and highlights the inherent challenges we must face as a country when choosing leaders and looking to the future to make good decisions for our kids. That Senator Brad Zaun would endorse Mr. Trump speaks to a troubling mindset: that being politically ignorant and a public buffoon is enough to represent and make decisions for thousands of honest and hard working people.”
Amanda: “Donald Trump’s insults towards veterans, women, and minorities don’t deserve attention let alone endorsement by Senator Zaun. By throwing his lot in with The Donald, Brad Zaun is letting the voters of District 20 know he isn’t the fair-minded statesman he says he is.”
