As I wrote previously, the GOP civil war is already underway. Traditional establishment Republicans like Mitt Romney, Mitch McConnell, Pat Toomey, Evan McMullin and Rob Portman want their goddamn party back. But Trump isn't like the mythical creature Medusa,...
Look, let's be honest. The GOP primary debates are a ratings nightmare, for a very simple reason. The prohibitive GOP frontrunner, Traitor tot isn't there. And as long as he isn't on stage, then his slobbering Trombie army is busy watching...
