Illusive Republicans And The "I" Word

When a political party avoids broadcast media, you know they are doing so for a reason. We suspect Trump's insanity and ineptitude when coupled with his serial lying, provides an impetus for GOP politicians to avoid any statements about Trump.

They are also running from a rabid base within their party. A base which is willing to overlook each and every indication of a president who is so unfit for the office, he should consider resigning. Yes, I know people who proudly traipsed to their polling places to cast that Trump (celebrity) vote. They bought the Trump carnival barking and they voted. Trump promised them the world (according to their twisted (paradigm)l he has delivered nothing worthwhile. He satisfies a need in those who voted for him; he entertains them. Oh, certainly provides daily entertainment which is common to successful reality TV celebrities, but the matter governance simply isn't part of the Trump experience.

About those Republicans who refuse to speak of Trump's daily troubles (especially the recent report of a Comey memo)

Media Matters is reporting noted journalist and TV personality Charlie Rose and his production tram received 20 refusals to appear from GOP politicians. 

Trump supporters have to wonder if their choice of president is good for the nation.  Even the most avid supporters seem to have less faith in their national messiah as indicated by dwindling poll numbers.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Donald Trump MSNBC Interview (28 Minutes Lost in Time)

If you want to see how the circus or carnival barker performs, each the following Trump interview with MSNBC's Katy Tur.

Why would any nation want to have a personality such as Trump's as a prospect for the US Presidency?

The interview runs 28 plus minutes with long periods of Trump spewing rambling oratory. If you watch the segment, know that Trump goes testy and cantankerous with the interviewer who was nothing shy of professional and even tempered. He wasn't being drilled by the likes of Tamron Hall, Maddow, or O'Donnell. He also wasn't sitting for a cocktail discussion with the over-thinking and over-talking Chris Hayes. 

Despite Tur's professionalism and a deferential temperament, mp went ugly a few times in the interview. He even offered up a kudos to Fox News for their glowing and supportive coverage of all things Trump. On MSNBC air-time!

Frankly, I could not watch the full interview. Here it is , if you actually care: linked.

Trump also sat with CNN's Anderson Cooper. One point from Cooper's interview is worthy of note. Trump proclaims "...everyone loves me?"

If you think about Trump's proclamation, you will find insight into his egomaniac insanity. One should wonder why he has instantly risen to the top of the GOP candidate herd (all 17).  Speaks volumes about the GOP base.
