Republican Party Frets Over What to Do With Trump

Michael Barbaro, Maggie Haberman, and Jonathan Martin, writing for The New York Times:

Since the start of Mr. Trump’s presidential campaign, a vexing question has hovered over his candidacy: Why have so many party leaders — privately appalled by Mr. Trump’s remarks about immigrants from Mexico — not renounced him?

There’s rarely been a political moment more satisfying than watching this debacle play out. The GOP, with their play towards personalities like Trump and the ideas that he represents, and their reliance on brand media sensationalism, created a golem. And now? Well, let’s just say that I don’t see it getting any less interesting. If only it was as simple as wiping a letter off of The Donald’s head.
