GOP Candidates “Laughably” Try to Distance Themselves from Trump Despite Imitating Him for Months

Last night’s extraordinarily un-American call by GOP frontrunner Donald Trump to ban Muslims from entering the United States, including Muslim U.S. citizens traveling abroad and presumably those who serve in our intelligence services and military, is anything but an isolated incident. In fact the Republican field of presidential candidates has spent weeks sowing fear and attempting to marginalize the Muslim community…
