Orrin Hatch is a Naive Fool

Orrin Hatch, the senior senator from Utah, just released this statement:

This week has reminded us how damaging it would be to elect Hillary Clinton in November. I continue to encourage Mr. Trump to make critical adjustments to emerge as a successful general election candidate and a capable governing partner. As our presumptive nominee, Trump needs to offer an inclusive and attractive vision of how best to bring about broadly shared prosperity at home and security in a dangerous world. I hope he will focus less on personality and divisive rhetoric and more on policies and a capacity to govern effectively

Trump has been the presumptive nominee since the beginning of May and has missed every single opportunity to “make critical adjustments,” including in his meeting today with senators. In that meeting, Trump attacked Jeff Flake, Mark Kirk, and Ben Sasse for failing to support him.

All these guys, Hatch included, who think Trump is suddenly going to stop behaving like Trupm are naive fools.
