"Donald Trump should withdraw and Mike Pence should be our nominee effective immediately," [South Dakota Republican senator John] Thune tweeted from his official Senate Twitter account Saturday afternoon.
Not four years ago. Or four months. Or even Fournier.
Four. Days. Ago.
Here is what he said today:
South Dakota Sen.

"He just believes that person should be Mike Pence."Byrne, in his Saturday statement, said Trump "cannot defeat" Clinton and urged the New York real estate developer to "step aside and allow" Pence, the Indiana governor, to "lead the Republican ticket."...
You know, it's bad enough to watch these loathsome creatures publicly selling their souls to an orange fire demon and his berserk horde.
