The pivot that wasn't

By Jack Brummet, GOP-Tea Party Ed.

As many expected, Donald J. Trump's long awaited "Pivot" was wishful thinking on the part of the GOP-Tea Party.  From an interview yesterday:

Donald J.Trump's babysitters

By Jack Brummet, National Affairs Ed.

The RNC—and his own team—have begun sending babysitters out with DJT. So far, Giuliani, Christie, and Priebus have pulled road duty.
"We've always found it's wise to have people traveling with him, because it's an opportunity to have him engaged and not just sitting there," Campaign runner Manafort said.

Is Donald Trump cracking up?

  • “Donald Trump is not of sound mind,” conservative Stephen Hayes wrote in July in the Weekly Standard. 
  • “Have we stopped to appreciate how crazy Donald Trump has gotten recently?” liberal Ezra Klein wrote on Vox.
  • He “appears haunted by multiple personality disorders,” conservative David Brooks wrote last week in the New York Times.
  • “We can gloss over it, laugh about it, analyze it, but Donald Trump is not a well man,” Stuart Stevens, chief strategist to Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign, said on Twitter.  In an interview Stevens said that the available evidence leads to two possible conclusions: either Trump has a substance abuse problem [ed's note: doubtful] or “there is something definitely off about him.”
  • “At best, this is a very damaged person,” Stevens said. “And there’s probably something more serious going on.”

By Jack Brummet, National Affairs Ed.

We could go on and on about this, but suffice to say, he has come close to hitting a new low, after a couple of weeks of scraping the bottom of the barrel.

Donald Trump: Don't ask, don't tell

By Jack Brummet, National Affairs Ed.

The Candidate, Donald J. Trump, keeps naming VP candidates and convention speakers he has never actually asked in person. Many of them decline. Tim Tebow's statement today had to be  a nice sucker punch.  

 This week they also leaked Condoleezza Rice as a Veep pick (Trump rang her up himself), although she politely said "no way" months ago.  Tim LeBow, Don King, and Mike Ditka were also named and ducked out.

CLEVELAND (AP) - Thursday morning he was among the biggest stars featured on Donald Trump's convention lineup. Thursday night, Tim Tebow declared his attendance at next week's Republican National Convention wasnothing more than "a rumor."
"I wake up this morning to find out that I'm speaking at the Republican National Convention," Tebow said in a video posted on Facebook. "It's amazing how fast rumors fly. And that's exactly what it is, a rumor."
The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to questions about Tebow's departure from a convention program that the New York billionaire's team had long teased would be an extraordinary display of political entertainment. But instead of sports stars and celebrities, as promised, the campaign is relying heavily on the party's establishment for the four-day convention, which begins Monday.

"While Trump and Lewandowski are close, Trump made the decision because of systemic problems in the campaign that had spilled out into the public, leaving Trump's campaign floundering amid sinking poll numbers and image problems, multiple sources from inside the campaign said." (MSNBC)

Trump's New York state director Michael Caputo tweeted immediately after the news broke:

A journalist was stunned yesterday attending his first Trump Rally. Read his tweets here.

By Jack Brummet, National Affairs Ed. 

Jared Yates Sexton attended his first Trump rally yesterday and posted the series of tweets linked below. His comparison to the Nuremberg Rallies seems apt.

Here are his four hours of tweets, in chronological order. . .

Trump event like a security state. Just watched a girl get denied for being "too alternative."

There's an ungodly amount of extremely drunk people here.

Big seller is a shirt that says Trump That Bitch. Everyone wearing one is being asked to pose for pictures. Big thumbs up. Big grins.

Crowd chanting BUILD THAT WALL BUILD THAT WALL over operatic music.

I don't like Hitler comparisons but that was positively like Nuremburg rally level crazy.

People laughing about how pissed their sisters are going to be. "they deserve it"

There's a protestor next to me and he's scared to death

Saying Orlando shooter shouldn't of been here as child of immigrants

Increase military. Jobs. Refutation of immigrants and minorities.

Bragging that he took credentials from WA Post. Crowd yells Kill them all.

Says Obama lousy president, can't repeat what I'm hearing in the crowd

Trump says "take care of our protestor, don't huuuurt him, take him home to mommy"

Trump says not to hurt protestor, several chant HURT HIM HURT HIM

Calls Elizabeth Warren Pocahontas, says he was asked to apologized, will only apologize to Pocahontas. Guy next to me does a war dance

Rally ends. Crowd on way mumbling about immigrants. Vendors yelling HILLARY SUCKS BUT NOT LIKE MONICA. America. 2016.

Just overheard: "you can't trust Latinos. Some maybe but not most"

So much casual racism, misogyny, homophobia, and just plain ugliness.

People breaking beer bottles in parking lot, throwing them on ground and at passing cars

Telling myself they're angry about the economy. About changing technology and industry. But there's so much base-level ugliness.

Suv blaring I Am A Real American, waving Trump hats and flipping off homeless and car with Mexican flag. What reality is this

Article tomorrow: there are members of Trump's coalition who've been waiting for years for an excuse to let their hate out.

Clearing out of Greensboro. Thanks for the retweets and comments. Trump's candidacy is a virus that needs cured.
