So, now John McCain has very very strongly criticized Trump for his attacks on the Muslim soldier’s family.
Will he meet with the family? And will the family only agree if Hilary is there too?
By the way, what sense does this phrase of McCain’s make?
I hope Americans understand that the remarks do not represent the views of our Republican Party, its officers or candidates.
Is this a problem with McCain’s grasp of reality, given that Trump is the most important Republican candidate right know. But that just makes no sense, since the statement as a whole is totally reality grounded.
Surely it has to mean that, notwithstanding the convention and the formal nomination, and the integration with the party machine, McCain does not regard Trump as a Republican candidate. Note that McCain did not say: “I hope Americans understand that the remarks do not represent the views of our Republican Party, its officers or ITS OTHER candidates.”
If so, surely this means that this was decided at a far higher level, that there is now an effective release for all Republicans from any duty of loyalty. If so, presumably W and H and Romney will be next, and anything can happen. At a minimum, the election would be over.
