7 times Republicans trashed Donald Trump

We think Donald Trump is totally unfit to sit in the Oval Office and have access to the nuclear launch codes. But we aren’t the only ones.

Here are the top seven phrases prominent Republicans have used to describe Donald Trump:

7. That time Maine Senator Susan Collins called him reckless:

“It is reckless for a presidential candidate to publicly raise doubts about honoring treaty commitments with our allies.”

6. That time Mitt Romney called him a fraud and a phony:

“Here’s what I know: Donald Trump is a phony, a fraud. His promises are as worthless as a degree from Trump University.”

5. That time Joe Scarborough called him a train wreck:

“At long last, Donald Trump has left the Republican Party few options but to act decisively and get this political train wreck off the tracks before something terrible happens.”

4. That time former Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal called Trump a madman:

“Conservatives need to say what we are thinking: Donald Trump is a madman who must be stopped.”

3. That time South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham called Trump a bigot:

“He’s a race-baiting, xenophobic religious bigot. He doesn’t represent my party. He doesn’t represent the values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for… He’s the ISIL man of the year.”

2. That time 50 Republican officials said Trump is dangerous and not qualified:

“‘None of us will vote for Donald Trump,’ the letter states …  all agree Trump is not qualified and would be dangerous.”

1. That time Jeb Bush called Trump a jerk:

“Just one other thing — I gotta get this off my chest — Donald Trump is a jerk … You cannot insult your way to the presidency. You can’t disparage women, Hispanics, disabled people. Who is he kidding?”
