    ‘Step Aside. Step Down.’ Mike Lee Asks Donald Trump To Quit Republican Race

    ‘Step Aside. Step Down.’ Mike Lee Asks Donald Trump To Quit Republican Race

    Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) wants Donald Trump to step down from the Republican presidential ticket, calling him a “distraction” from the conservative principles of the Republican party.

    “Mr. Trump, I respectfully ask you, with all due respect to step aside. Step down. Allow someone else to carry the banner of these principles,” Lee said.

    Lee published a video on Facebook of his reaction to Trump after the Republican nominee apologized Friday evening for using degrading rhetoric about women in a conversation ten years ago with Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush. The Washington Post published leaked audio of the conversation on Friday.

    “I wouldn’t hire that person, wouldn’t want to be associated with that person and I certainly don’t think I’d feel conformable hiring that person to be the leader of the free world,” Lee said, pointing out that Republicans had been repeatedly asked to “settle” with Donald Trump.

    Lee, a frequent Trump critic, never endorsed him as the Republican nominee, but hadn’t entirely denounced the Republican candidate. But in his video last night, Lee’s frustration was clear.

    “This can’t continue, it’s time for us not to settle, it’s time to expect more,” Lee said.

    He appeared angry by Trump’s definition of the leaked comments as a distraction.

    “With all due respect sir, you sir are the distraction, your conduct, sir, is the distraction, it’s the distraction from the very principles that will help us win in November,” he said.

    Lee called for a Republican candidate that reflected Republican principles, demanding a better candidate to lead them to defeat Hillary Clinton.

    “There will be time to figure out the who,” said Lee. “Right now we’ve got to be focused on the what. And that what has to involve our greatest, our most noble principles.”

    There are a lot of comments at the article. Here are a few. it doesn't look like like Lee's power play is being well received.

    Philosophy14 #AltRight 4 hours agoThe UniParty is real. Many have said this for years, only for it to be discarded as a "conspiracy theory" (hint: conspiracy theory does NOT = false). The GOP and the Democrat party both work for the interests of international elites.
    Nationalism - Faith, Family, Folk, above all else - is the real resistance.

    Ghosts of Benghazi Truth Hurts 4 hours agoGreat post. I would opt to take a dump on the podium in congress in expression of my utter disgust as to what Washington has become.......

    Cat Ghosts of Benghazi 3 hours agoAnother butthurt NeverTrumper spewing hate..doesn't Mike Lee look like a blubbering baby having a tantrum in the above pic? The Uniparty collaboration to destroy our Patriotic Warrior Trump is obscene. I've never seen such unhinged behavior from SO many idiots. They were all just waiting in the wings..for The Hag to throw them a crumb they could use..Skrewww them! We The People want to save our beloved Country with TRUMP16.

    Factory_Hag Cat 3 hours agoNot this Hag. Dear Lord, what a hit job this is on Trump! They were all waiting in the bushes for this opportunity. How can they think we are so stupid as to throw Trump aside for crude comments made years ago when we are worried about what Hillary has probably been doing YESTERDAY!!
    What horrors are they afraid a Trump Presidency and his AG might uncover? I am getting the impression that whatever we think they will find, there is something much worse, that we haven't discovered yet.

    el_segundo Factory_Hag 3 hours agoIt's obvious what they did. They waited till Julian Assange dropped some stuff that is potentially damaging to Clinton's campaign, like her saying "Yeah, it's impossible to vet all those refugees", etc. Then dumped this themselves, and instructed their media sycophants in every news outlet to only talk about this. It's pathetic. So Trump made a lewd comment, who hasn't? It does show that they are all afraid of a Trump presidency, and I hope that everyone, whether they supported Trump before or not, can see through the political games they play.

    NarcoJournalism el_segundo 2 hours agoYes. This is a media distraction to blot out the damning WikiLeaks and FBI emails released yesterday.

    Stan Carter NarcoJournalism 38 minutes agoMike Lee is an enormous disappointment. Him saying this reminds me of a line in Casablanca: BTW, I hated Trump during the primary. Now I couldn't support him more.
    I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here.
