Donald Trump doesn’t have control of himself and shouldn’t control America

Donald Trump disgustingly insults the gold star parents of a slain American hero who gave his life to save his men. He insults John McCain, a decorated pilot who spent five years as a prisoner of war. He promised to donate money to veterans groups but sends them nothing until he is exposed. He wants to withdraw from NATO and put Europe at risk for a Russian invasion. He invites the Russians to commit espionage to further his campaign. He calls Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un great leaders. He claims to know more about ISIS than the generals.

Is this the man you want to be commander in chief? A man so callous and vindictive who swears to hit people in the face who disagree with him? Do you really want him close to the nuclear codes? Please seriously think about that.

He does not have the ability to control himself. Wake up, America! This man is a danger to us and the world. As his biographer described him, he’s a “sociopath.”

We cannot allow him to be elected. He would put all of us at risk.
