    At least sniffles is doing his tweet storm at a more reasonable hour of the day instead of 3am. :D

    You know what's funny? About an hour ago I was thinking to myself that it's been a couple of days since his last twitter meltdown and he's overdue, and here we are!

    Cons are leaving Trump because many are social conservatives and Trump is clearly not.

    Maybe he's invested bigly into twitter stocks. I never heard/read constantly about twitter that much as with Trumpo.

    It likely has more to do with Trump being an ingrate.

    There's a lot of decent Republicans just trying to do the work their constituency elected them to do who are getting dragged down by Trump. IMO we should be supportive of those who are unhitching their wagons from him, when this is all over they're going to have to rebuild as it is.

    It likely has at least something to do with resolutions of arguments in evangelical households. ;)

    Yes, but before it shall be burned down into the ground so the earth becomes fertile again. And we all should be standing at the sidelines watching because that very fire keeps us entertained warm.

    Yet we don't need to throw a single match into the fire, they're pretty much burning it down internally. Although it's easy to blame the entire party IMO it's a good example of what can happen when allowing the fringe to take over. It's a good lesson for both sides to stand up against that faction internally.

    Unhitching at the 11th hour after it is obviously over for him/the party? No, that is not admirable. It deserves NO support.

    Republicans are attempting to save face. They deserve no credit. Trump being a racist, misogynist, a rapist, and a pedophile are not new revelations. These decades-old habits Donald Trump has been widely known for.

    Yes, that is the best part. Purification by fire. This is almost a biblical meltdown and many christian conservatives are embracing it to the fullest.

    I think someone very famous once said...no, not that thing...that you should love your neighbour no matter what (don't quote me on this!). I do not agree. I really can't stand the GOP. The whole lot. But good on you that you are believing in stuff like that and would lend a helping hand!

    Social conservatives, all conservatives really, have known from day one that Trump isn't a conservative.

    Hillary could go on vacation until November, and Donald would still find someway to (f) it up. Twitter is his worst friend...then again, his mouth is.

    His tax plan is certainly fiscally conservative. He is pro business/jobs/tariffs/nationalism. Hillary is for Robin Hood corporate taxes/amnesty/globlism. Trump just does not appeal to conservative Christians, although neither does Hillary.

    It's all he can do now, tweet and rally to keep his core support engaged enough to come out and vote for him. Otherwise he's likely to show the world a pretty blue map on Election Day. It's probably getting difficult to think of new ways to keep his supporters charged up. The outrage ratio in mainstream media must be maintained!

    Yeah but he is running out of ammo! And his act is getting kind of stale. Media bad. Hillary bad. Bill bad. GOP bad. Rinse and repeat. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz boring.

    From WaPo:

    The GOP Tumbles toward Anarchy: "It's Every Person for Him/Herself"

    Ryan’s move, announced on a contentious conference call with House GOP members, was seen as a concession that Trump could no longer win the presidency and that the party must devote itself to retaining its majorities in the House and Senate.

    Unlike Ryan, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) was rendered mute on the subject Monday. He told a business group in Kentucky that if they wanted to hear his thoughts on Trump, they “might as well go ahead and leave,” according to the Associated Press.

    At least he's not tweeting about the Day of the Girl. That would be awkward. He also hasn't said anything about national coming out day.

    I would guess Narcissistic Personality Disorder if we're pretending to be psychiatrists. Although many presidential candidates and CEO's (Steve Jobs) have megalomania tendencies, psychologists say Trump is textbook. For some reason, jerks make pretty good leaders sometimes.

    McConnell: a man who can tell a locker room from a public speaking venue. Good move on Mitch's part.
