On Monday, “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski asked if Trump’s remarks were racist.
“It’s completely racist,” co-host Joe Scarborough replied. “Here you have a guy that is from Indiana. From Indiana! I think his family, if I’m not mistaken, had been in the country of America longer than Trump’s grandmother.”
Scarborough went on to criticize Republicans who are endorsing Trump, saying it’s wrong for them to denounce Trump’s latest comments while ignoring his call to ban Muslims from entering the United States.
“They can’t be morally outraged this week when they knew what he was doing last week,” Scarborough said.
I NEVER watch Morning Joe anymore, but I have to admit it really tickles me when I see Scarborough losing his shit while being confronted with what the Republican party has become.
I remember having the same sense of vindication while watching him respond to the news that McCain had chosen Sarah Palin as his running mate back in 2008.
As it turns out Scarborough is far from the only Republican suffering buyer's remorse over Donald Trump:

A growing number of Republican lawmakers and strategists fear that Donald Trump’s hostile remarks about minorities and his unorthodox strategy have imperiled his campaign at the end of a five-week head start on Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton that they hoped would fortify him heading into the general election.
So the question to ask is are they just NOW noticing that Trump is a racist, or are they just now upset because now that it threatens to damage his chances in the general election?
And if does no appear that Trump is planning on tamping things down:
An embattled Donald Trump urgently rallied his most visible supporters to defend his attacks on a federal judge's Mexican ancestry during a conference call on Monday in which he ordered them to question the judge's credibility and impugn reporters as racists.
"We will overcome," Trump said, according to two supporters who were on the call and requested anonymity to share their notes with Bloomberg Politics. "And I’ve always won and I’m going to continue to win. And that’s the way it is.
Well okay then.
In other Trump news is appears that there really is not much to the Donald Trump campaign for President.

Donald Trump is a candidate without a campaign – and it’s becoming a serious problem.
Republicans working to elect Trump describe a bare-bones effort debilitated by infighting, a lack of staff to carry out basic functions, minimal coordination with allies and a message that’s prisoner to Trump’s momentary whims.
“Bottom line, you can hire all the top people in the world, but to what end? Trump does what he wants,” a source close to the campaign said.
Okay so should we bother to bet on how many votes Hilary Clinton will beat Donald Trump by in the November election? Or should we bet on whether or not Trump even makes it to the general election?
I am seriously unsure.
