Here are a few others: conspiracy theorist, hate and fearmongerer, misogynist, foreign policy amateur, and GOP xenophobe-in-chief.
So better chug whatever Bailey’s you’ve got left in your corn flakes, Reince, because the time has come for you and the rest of the Republican Party — yes, even the #NeverTrumpers — to get on board the Trump Train and unite behind Donald Trump as your party’s nominee.
