The tail wagging the dog.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (click here) delivered a stern reprimand of Donald Trump during a Capitol Hill press conference on Tuesday.
The Kentucky Republican called on Trump to "start talking about the issues that the American people care about and to start doing it now."
McConnell spoke as condemnation from all sides of the Republican Party continued raining in on Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, for alleging that US District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel cannot be impartial in a case that he's presiding over regarding the Manhattan billionaire's now defunct Trump University....

Donald Trump is running for president. Hello?

Mr. Trump is offering the issue far differently than anyone else. He is stating his words regarding the lawsuit of Trump University is being misconstrued.  He is probably correct. Regardless of the words sounding very racist, he is probably correct in his understanding. His attorneys should be addressing the public.

Both McConnell and Ryan should have been ready for the fall out over the nomination of Donald Trump. He is not establishment. He is not a stupid man. He is going to do things differently.

Standard SOP of the Republicans is harassment. This is the way establishment Republicans have operated since 2008. What their constituents don't like, harassment takes over. I don't think harassment is going to work with Donald Trump.

Donald Trump has lead the harassment. He got what he wanted when it came to the birth certificate. He then moved beyond that and wanted more proof. I think he'll make that as part of his campaign as soon as President Obama comes out for the Democratic nominee.

His deserved recognition honed a servant’s heart. He’s one who proudly clings to God, guns and our constitution!
“Darryl Glenn is a conservative outsider needed to take Washington by storm. Colorado — please support Darryl Glenn for US Senate.”...
