Star Tribune: Donald Trump must leave the race

His abusive views toward women disqualify him.
By Editorial Board Star Tribune

The news Friday of presidential candidate Donald Trumpís vulgar view of women and his conceivably criminal activity toward them wasnít an October surprise, because it wasnít a surprise. This is the real Donald Trump, as evidenced repeatedly during 16 months of attacks on Hispanics, Muslims, women, the disabled, women again, veterans, and women some more.

For the sake of the Republican Party and the nation ó for godís sake ó enough. Enough altogether. Trump should immediately relinquish his nomination and allow, for a short month at least, the country to have a campaign thatís closer to representing its legitimate interests and actual divisions.

No nation should toy with electing a leader who beholds more than half of its population with disrespect. No party should be represented by a candidate whose ersatz positions bear such little coherence with its own. And no one should countenance a man who declares that, because heís a star, he can prey on women, regardless of their consent, and speak of grabbing them by the genitalia.

Won't happen, of course, but wow. I've never seen anything like this. Each piece of this unfolding drama is jaw dropping.

1. I oppose his policies and always have.

And I oppose HIM, as an individual. One of the worst this country has to offer.
