Well, well, well – seems like the Republican establishment has developed a case of buyers remorse and casting about to see if there is a applicable lemon law when it comes to their fair haired boy Donald Trump.
Not only has Trump made fools of the home team but individuals who in wanting to demonstrate their commitment to the party uber allies by endorsing him are seeking to distance themselves.
In this seeking of distance talk of a convention fight and an alternative nominee have risen to the surface again.
The casting couch has floated aspiring debutantes like Paul Ryan, Scott Walker, and one time military icon General David Petraeus.
And yes that would be the same Petraeus who was busted for emails containing classified information much the same as Hillary Clinton is under fire for – which in theory would seem to defang the conservative outrage related to Clinton.
But this is politics, a cesspool of contradictions and the nonsensical – so why not Petraeus?
Or why not Ryan as he attempts to wipe the pie ( or is it another substance?) from his face, or everybody’s favorite demagogue Walker?
It’s difficult to imagine the RNC actually believed Trump could retool himself – maybe they believed that in being the B grade actor with the at times affected James Deanesque pouty expression and huckster he is he could pull it off at least long enough to win the election.
That the crown prince twit of twitter could tweet his way out of his now epic episodes of feces flinging.
But they should have known better, not only has the handwriting been on the wall but it’s been there in huge flashing neon letters – the man’s a certifiable idiot, a narcissist with an unlimited capacity to stick his hoof in his mouth and an acute sense of entitlement.
A wall is being built, a wall that isn’t going to keep Mexicans or anyone else out of the country, rather a wall of Trumps construction that will keep him contained, keep him out of the presidency, and the poetic justice is Mexico isn’t paying for the construction of the wall, Trump is.
