10:47 PM - Hillary and the Cowering GOP Elite
Cowed by political correctness as usual, Republican leaders rushed to the microphones this week to denounce their own candidate. They were so eager to get a pat on the head from the media for their ethnic sensitivity that they happily twisted Trump's comments about Judge Gonzalo Curiel into a racist attack. The Democrats don't even have to put a sinister interpretation on Trump's words; the Republican leaders will do it for them.
The Democrats never cannibalize their own. When Hillary makes a controversial comment, they form a defensive circle around her. When Trump makes one, Republicans scurry to join the circular firing squad around him. The Democrats give their nominee the benefit of the doubt; Republican leaders doubt the benefit of defending theirs. Living in dread fear of losing the approval of the media, they immediately reinforce whatever demagogic label it seeks to pin on Trump by interpreting his words in the worst possible light.
