And now he refuses to endorse Ryan.

Paul Ryan's likely statement: "this doesn't represent the GOP. But I still stand with him".

There's a part of me that actually feels a bit bad for longtime members of the GOP. I mean, what do they do? Not that I really feel that bad though.

The GOP is screwed. Because Obama has told them to un-endorse, now they can't do it.

Also, if Ryan and McCain do it they look petty since Trump has now publicly said he doesn't support them.

Somewhere in a dark basement, Ted Cruz laughs. Then gets back to dismembering his latest victim.

They did it to themselves though. Demanding their very own media so that they can turn a blind eye, fully embracing the denying of science full on, they no longer encouraged the intelligent conservative and no one stood up or spoke out. So they got this; a fucking child in a 10,000 dollar suit.

The Democrats aren't immune to this either. I see certain traps that if they're not careful may snowball into a downfall if they don't catch themselves.

Yep. I do believe some of the more "old-school" Republicans are speaking out because they genuinely are embarrassed at what the party's become both with Trump and in recent years in general.

But a lot of those who "speak out" now are doing so only because they're unhappy with how Trump has blatantly exposed so many of their party's worst qualities so openly, and they're trying to shush him to attempt to save their own skins. All the racist, xenophobic, sexist stuff they tried to hide for so long or brush off as nothing, well, they can't exactly hide it anymore, or ignore it.

And they keep doubling down on far right policies to boot, despite the fact that they've been continuing to lose a lot of potential voting blocs because of those policies. Clearly they have no interest in learning from their mistakes/screw ups, for whatever reason.

Agreed on this, too. I've always said that the Democrats should never get so cocky as to think they've got elections and support in the bag whenever the GOP fucks something up, and I especially hope they don't do that here.

I saw that Governor Branstad and Senator Grassley from my state gave very carefully worded statements today on Trump's recent comments over the whole Khan thing that were a perfect example of, "I have to word this in a way that doesn't piss off my Republican base/Trump supporters". They basically said that Trump's comments were a "mistake" and that they did not agree with his statements, but they preferred Trump and the party keep its focus on battling Hilary instead.

It's bad that I laughed at this, isn't it ?

Not to mention the fact the multi-quote function is not platform-specific. It's there whether you access the web version of Interference or use the app. It's a feature of the site, not of particular devices.
