Once Donald Trump locked up the nomination, Republicans were confident about his next moves.One of Trump's leading surrogates, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, suggested reviving the House Un-American Activities Committee, infamous for punishing Americans loosely accused of being communists or communist sympathizers.Since the killer wasn't actually an immigrant but a Queens-born American, Trump points out that Omar Mateen's father came to the United States in the 1980s (fleeing the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan).Watching honorable Republican-elected officials like Paul Ryan contort themselves, deploring Trump's rhetoric, distancing themselves from his policies while still promising to vote for the man, is painful.Several Republican former national security officials and experts have put together a letter announcing that they cannot support Trump.And where is Sen. John McCain, who has declared that he supports a man who seems to stand for everything McCain is against – and who callously belittled his war record? Today, all McCain needs to do to preserve his honor is to say two words: "Never Trump".
