The Republicans on the Hill Have a Problem: They Hate Trump

My mom bought me a chemistry set when I was a child and warned me to be careful. But nine times out of ten putrid clouds of poison gas would stream from my room. The Republicans were warned, too, about their toxic politics. Oh well.

Sen. Jim Inhofe -- climate-change denier extraordinaire -- is alone
in admiring Trump's reaction to Orlando. Maybe he can be Veep!

Politico reports that despair is the operative emotion among GOP congresscritters. Donald Trump is not pivoting at all. But then, we suspected he might not.
Senate Republicans have tried to work with Donald Trump. They’ve offered gentle advice and firm guidance, hoping he’ll morph into a general election candidate who won’t kill their chances of keeping the Senate, or better yet, will give Hillary Clinton a run for her money.
None of it has worked. And now a palpable mix of despair and resignation has permeated the Senate Republican Conference. Many lawmakers are openly frustrated, and refusing to defend the comments and actions of their own standard-bearer, the man they’ve endorsed for president.
Don't worry, folks. The Orlando news cycle can't last forever. Surely, the Donald will be presidential at the next inflection point. Oh my God, what if he's not?
