Why is this candidate different from all other Republican candidates?

1. Why is he so appealing to neo-Nazis, Ku Klux Klansmen and white supremacists when his opponent is not?

2. Why have so many leading Republicans refused to endorse him, un-endorsed him, said they won't vote for him or have said they'll vote for Hillary Clinton?

3. Why is he so full of contempt for so many people, especially immigrants, minorities, the disabled and women?

"Dear Douglas, I'm spending an evening campaigning with Hillary in New York City next week, and I would love to meet you there," she wrote to me.  "I want you to be right up front when I sing."

I was so excited I began worrying about what I'd wear for such an auspicious occasion.  I wonder if my tux still fits.
