Trump, for all his facility with manipulating the media, is at bottom an impulsive and profoundly ignorant racist bully. But the reaction from establishment Republicans is equally damning. With a few exceptions, they have squirmed and rationalized past Trump's comments. It's a portrait of a party in utter moral and intellectual freefall.


I'm hearing that a lot of active and prior service military people are pissed. I think I even read that the VFW and other military organizations have openly supported the Kahn family. I could very easily see Trump in particular and the Republican party in general lose votes over this.
