The ongoing dumpster fire of sh1t dark fascist comedy (with a heart) that is 2016 Republican Presidential Nominee Donald Trump (emphasis added) continues beyond all expectations. It really is quite something, he says. At this rate I half expect Trump, upon the advice of new campaign "chief executive" Stephen CBannon (replacing, uh, Donald Trump?) of the Wonderful World of Breitbart "News", to charge across the stage at the first Presidential debate and eat Hillary Clinton's face in a Lecter-esque flakka-infused rage that he will later attempt to pass off as sarcasm and then double down as getting in touch with his inner-chimp and part of his continued performance art fight against political correctness.
Meanwhile, the media continues in its stupor to somehow manage to portray Paul Ryan and Mike Pence as "moderate" and "sane" GOPers, which is the one silver lining of Trump, I suppose, for the GOP in now that their 2020 nominee can campaign on a 0% top federal income tax rate, repealing social security and providing that US citizens to be deported for "extremist views" will receive some sort of due process before they are shipped overseas (to where?) will be declared a "serious policy wonk" by media acclimation.
But really, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, et. al. need to have Trump hung around their necks and go down with the ship instead of somehow existing in a kind of political Schrödinger's Cat state of supporting the nominee while also condemning him. He's your party's nominee Paul! Own him! It's the GOP's base!
And I'm sure that by 2020 various GOPers will have convinced themselves and many of their voters that Trump was actually the Democrat's nominee in 2016, kind of like there having been no terrorist attacks committed by muslims in the United States before Obama became President or that George W. Bush "kept us safe!"
