GOP Senator Who Called for Trump to Drop Out Says He’s Voting for Trump

In an apparent effort to conclusively prove that he stands for absolutely nothing of consequence, Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID) now says he will vote for Donald Trump.

POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) - U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo of Idaho says he's voting for Donald Trump after earlier this month rescinding his endorsement.

Crapo in a statement released Monday says he will vote for Trump to keep Hillary Clinton from becoming president.

Crapo didn't just rescind his endorsement of Trump, he called on Trump to drop out of the race and allow Mike Pence to take his place.

Crapo cited his own alleged work against domestic violence when he said Trump's behavior is unacceptable, but Trump's behavior evidently became acceptable at some point over the past couple weeks.

It's hard to explain that one, because after leaked video footage revealed Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women, and after Crapo rescinded his endorsement, nearly a dozen women came forward to corroborate what Trump himself said. In other words, Crapo decided to support Trump again after Trump's victims came forward.

Trump is the Republican party.
