Trump Meltdown #39,066


I will never tire of this picture.

Donald Trump refuses to endorse Paul Ryan for Congress.  That’s Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, #2 in the line of succession to the Presidency.  Now you’d think that the Republican candidate for President would want a Republican House and so forth.  It just makes the job easier.

But not Trump.  In fact, at this point I don’t think “Republican candidate” is a correct description of Donald Trump.  The entire thing is starting to remind me of a very elaborate Improv Everywhere project, or maybe the Yes Men.

Reports of Trump’s campaign staff morale I saw today used the word “suicidal.”  This is — increasingly obviously — not a person who plans or expects to win an election for President.  His prattling about how the election is rigged is just him laying down a foundation of excuses. Someone I read recently pointed out that losing the election could be a better outcome for Trump.  He’ll be golden for life as a Fox News or similar conservative TV network blowhard commentator.  As long as he has a camera into which to sneer and a mic into which to spew insults, he’s all set.

By the way, Mike Pence, the Governor of Indiana, is totally OK with making that Paul Ryan endorsement.

I strongly support Paul Ryan, strongly endorse his re-election,” Pence, a longtime congressional colleague of Ryan’s, said in a phone interview with Fox News. “He is a longtime friend. He’s a strong conservative leader. I believe we need Paul Ryan in leadership in the Congress of the United States.

Did I mention that Pence is Trump’s “running mate”?  The top of the ticket says no to an endorsement… then the #2 goes ahead and breaks with him?  Holy s*.  I have been paying at least some attention to Presidential campaigns since “All the Way with LBJ!” and I cannot remember anything remotely like this.

    Since the very beginning of Trump’s campaign I’ve understood why he wanted to run, it’s all about him and his ego. Publicity.
    But I’ve never understood how he was going to serve. The idea of him having a job with actually responsibilities seemed beyond the pale.
    His nonsense has to get worse and worse, he HAS to do it otherwise he might win, and I don’t think he truly wants that.
