Romney: I fight Trump so I 'can sleep at night’

Mitt Romney says he feels a moral obligation to fight to keep Donald Trump from becoming president.

“I wanted my grandkids to see that I couldn’t simply ignore what Mr. Trump was saying and doing, which revealed a character and temperament unfit for the leader of the free world,” he said in a Wall Street Journal interview published Friday.

“I know that some people are offended that someone who lost and is the former nominee continues to speak, but that’s how I can sleep at night. And there are some people, though it’s a small number, who still value my opinion.”

Romney, the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee, admitted that he may have poured more fuel on the fire by attacking Trump’s fitness for the Oval Office.

“Friends warned me, ‘don’t speak out, stay out of the fray,’ because criticizing Mr. Trump will only help him by giving him someone else to attack," he said. "They were right. I became his next target, and the incoming attacks have been constant and brutal.”

Romney added that he has ruled out a third-party White House run, noting he will not vote for Trump nor for Hillary Clinton, the Democratic front-runner.

The five sons this man has never served while our country was at war. I hope this phony can sleep at night.

While the rest of us try to save our nation by supporting Trump.

    Tea Party Member in support of Trump. He is just another RINO who is sorry for himself.

Of course he can sleep at night.  Only people with a conscience have trouble sleeping...

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
