NHDP - Does the GOP think Trump has Cooties?

 

 

 

 

 

 

CONCORD, N.H. - Donald Trump is in New Hampshire tonight after last night’s debate, when the GOP candidates spent time attacking him on his personality and style. We can only assume the strategy is just another one of the GOP’s childish games. We all remember in elementary school, poking fun of the person we actually really liked. Looks like the GOP candidates reverted back to their third grade strategy – insulting someone who they agree with and probably, actually like.

 

See for yourself: the GOP candidates and Donald Trump agree on their key policy stances. When their policies are all the same, it’s clear the GOP candidates find something very appealing about Donald Trump.
