As America wishes it could recover from the events of last weekend starting with the release of Trump’s “lockerroom talk” to the debate which left substantial portions of Missouri uninhabitable for years to come, the nightmare known as this election cycle continues:
RNC: After a weekend of silence and rumors, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus confirmed once again he is a coward and the rumors of the RNC abandoning Trump are not true. Priebus says the RNC went silent for the nominee to explain himself. Obviously Priebus was ordered back into line by his “dear leader” Trump. We cannot depose Trump right now, but could we depose Priebus?
Ryan: Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R) is not being a coward like his fellow Wisconsin Priebus and is abandoning Trump.
Anarchy: Here is more on the anarchy that is breaking out as Republican turns on Republican over Trump.
More Ryan: Trump responded to Ryan being a decent human being by lashing out at Ryan for allegedly not doing his job. Not sure if Trump could balance a budget if magically another trillion dollars of revenue appeared.
Base First Strategy: Trump’s base first strategy is under attack from Republicans who know how to do math. Trump’s strategy is squared on turning out the Great Unwashed Working Class White Horde (or the Horde for short) in numbers that would have frightened Attila the Hun and Ghengus Khan. The problem with that is that the Horde is losing members due to (1) anyone competent getting an education and becoming suburbanized, (2) heroin overdoses, and (3) the influx of other people the Horde hates.
Trump’s Base: Speaking of Trump’s base, the Washington Post has a great piece on how the Horde is beginning to realize Trump cannot win. This mirrors the Facebook discussions I see whenever the coal issue comes up back where I grew up among the Horde that was left behind in the post-industrial wasteland known as Greene County.
Foreign Policy: Foreign Policy magazine has broken its half century tradition of not endorsing candidates for political office and has endorsed Hillary Clinton for President….Share on Facebook
