[VIDEO] O’Rourke: Trump ‘Double Agent,’ Cruz ‘Dragging In’ ‘Old Social Issues,’ I ‘Hate It With This Immigration Stuff’

“Cruz could actually get…nominated. I’m assuming that Trump will finally be exposed as a double agent, and will have to be stuck in a Chappaqua safe house, or wherever Hillary has got Bill stashed. But Cruz could actually get the nomination, and that would just be a disaster for the Republican Party. He’s dragging in all these tired, sick, old social issues, get out of here.

Kasich is a perfect example, a good boring governor of a purple state, very popular governor of a purple state, lots of experience in the House of Representatives, and he’s polling at like no percent.”

“I don’t get it. They have gone crazy for Trump, who is just a bad man. I mean, that kind of language, I mean, honestly, you know, I mean, it’s like talking to some drunk guy in a bar at midnight. And people are going for it. I just don’t understand.”

He added, “bring in a boring guy. Okay, Republican candidates are supposed to be boring. We’ve got several that’ll do just fine, there’s Jeb. Kasich is a perfect example, a good boring governor of a purple state, very popular governor of a purple state, lots of experience in the House of Representatives, and he’s polling at like no percent.”

“I thought there was a Republican establishment who was supposed to keep things like Trump or, for that matter, Cruz from happening, and then I realized, no, they’re all dead. I’m the Republican establishment now. And it was a sad and burdensome thing to find out. And I wish I knew what to do.”

O’Rourke continued, “that’s what being a Republican is all about is low energy. We want a smaller government, a more efficient government, a government that doesn’t poke its nose into everybody’s business. Read the rest of this entry »

On this day in 1865, the institution of slavery legally ended with the ratification of the 13th Amendment, just seven months after the end of the Civil War. The House passed the measure in January 1865, yet it became official almost a year later when Georgia’s ratification completed the constitutionally required approval by three quarters of the states. Georgia was the 27th state to ratify out of 36 at the time.
