At Least He’s Not Satan: The Best of #NeverTrump

What’s a conservative to do when the movement faces something as terrible as Trump?

Respond with principle and passion … and don’t lose your sense of humor. If nothing else, at least Donald J. Trump has inspired some unforgettable quotes from #NeverTrump conservatives.

GOP leader Craig Dunn of Indiana, via Politico:

“If Satan had the lead on him and was one delegate away from being nominated as our candidate, and Donald Trump was the alternative, I might vote for Donald Trump.”

GOP strategist and staunch #NeverTrump fighter Rick Wilson, via Independent Journal Review:

“I will never vote for Donald Trump, not even if Ronald Reagan and William F. Buckley rise from the grave and beg me to support him.”

Ben Howe of RedState:

“Donald Trump has shown us time and again that he is far from a conservative. He’s a democrat donating, single payer supporting, eminent domain abusing, flip flopping, racist, sexist, temper tantrum throwing, xenophobic liar who will find ways to destroy what’s left of post-Obama America.”

Paradox’s own @politicalmath:

Author, writer and commentator Mary Katharine Ham on The Federalist Radio Hour:

“How much is a Donald Trump promise worth? We’ve seen how he treats Chris Christie onstage.

Every time you’re wondering how much good it will do to hug Donald Trump? Look at Chris Christie … once you have done what you need to do for [Trump], you are out the door.”

Columnist Ross Douthat in the New York Times:

“[W]hen Trump is no longer a candidate for president, Sean Hannity will probably morph back into a partisan hatchet man, Ben Carson will go back to his speaking circuit, Newt Gingrich will find some new ideological coat to wear and Chris Christie will take a job chauffeuring Trump’s limo.”

Writer, speaker and commentator Erick Erickson on The Resurgent:

“Frankly, if Trump is able to get the nomination, the Republican Party will cease to be the party in which I served as an elected official. It will not deserve my support and will not get it if it chooses to nominate a pro-abortion liberal masquerading as a conservative, who preys on nationalistic, tribal tendencies and has an army of white supremacists online as his loudest cheerleaders.”
