A sociopath with no sense of guilt, no ability to empathize, no redeemable human qualities whatsoever. Completely untrustworthy, duplicitous, reprehensible.
I' not sure what one of them could do to regain any foothold on respect, or even forgiveness, but it would have to be pretty impressive.
As far as I'm concerned the Republican brand has become little different from a swastika. If someone is willing to wear it then they get all the baggage it comes with.
