Anyone who appalled by the thought of Donald Trump as the Republican nominee for President must search for words to explain what a horrifying idea this is.

Trump is a snake oil salesman. Trump is a con man. Trump is a fraud. Trump is hoaxing working people into believing that he has a secret plan to bring back the jobs that were outsourced to low-wage countries (by people like Donald Trump) or that were lost to new technologies.

Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post says quite simply that Trump is a charlatan. Ken Bernstein, a regular blogger for the Daily Kos, dissects that article here.
