Donald J. Trump, will you please go now! Brunswick Beacon

Shortly before the 2016 election, Donald Trump admitted on tape to grabbing women by the privates. “When you’re a star,” Trump bragged, “they let you do it.”

Hope Hicks, Trump’s communications director, whose testimony helped convict Trump of 34 felonies for election interference, called it a crisis. Senators Mike Lee (R-UT), Jeff Flake (R-AZ) Cory Gardner (R-CO), and many Republicans demanded Trump drop out. 

Today, Trump is an adjudicated fraud, sex offender and convicted felon, with three more trials looming on 54 felonies. Most Americans say Trump is unfit to be president. Independents, and 16% of Republicans, say Trump should drop out. Republicans publicly claim they’re happy to nominate a criminal for president. Privately, they know they cannot lose one-sixth of Republican voters and win. 

With just days until their convention, Republicans’ only chance to avoid an election debacle is to borrow a page from Dr. Seuss and show Trump the door:

“The time has come. The time is now. Just go. Go. GO! I don’t care how. You can go by foot. You can go by cow. Donald J. Trump, will you please go now!

You can go on skates. You can go on skis. You can go in a hat. But please go. Please! If you like you can go in an old blue shoe. Just go, go, GO! Please do, do, DO!

If you wish you can go by lion’s tail. Or stamp yourself and go by mail. Donald J. Trump, don’t you know? The time has come to go, Go, GO!”

Republicans could find someone to nominate who doesn’t have 34 felony convictions. They could then tell Americans they defended the Rule of Law: “I said GO and GO I meant…The time had come. SO…Donald WENT.”

Or, they could nominate the sex molester and convicted felon and hope Americans have lost their minds.
