Everybody Hates Donald

After a disastrous week of feuds and plummeting poll numbers, Republican leaders have concluded that Donald J. Trump is a threat to the party’s fortunes and have begun discussing how soon their endangered candidates should explicitly distance themselves from the presidential nominee.

For Republicans in close races, top strategists say, the issue is no longer in doubt. One House Republican has already started airing an ad vowing to stand up to Mr. Trump if he is elected president, and others are expected to press similar themes in the weeks ahead.

Don't remember seeing anything like this from Republicans. Used to Democrats distancing themselves because their candidate wasn't clear enough that he was actually a secret Republican, or maybe because he supposedly put the wrong cheese on his cheesesteak.

We get our entertainment where we can.
