I've got a new piece up at BNR about this garbage interview that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell did in which he made plain how shallow the Republicans' definition of "credibility" really is:
McConnell is uniquely concerned with Donald's presentation. He's a great showman, but he's got to tone it down to be taken seriously.Head on over the read the rest!
Donald's credibility with Republican elites isn't predicated on ditching policies like building a border wall, banning Muslims, or punishing abortion doctors. It's predicated only on using a Teleprompter.
Which frankly says as much about their credibility as it does about his.
It's almost like what I've been saying for the last year is true: That Donald Trump is not, in fact, an outlier from mainstream Republican policy, and that the GOP elite don't actually give a hot damn about his supposedly outrageous policies, but only care that he is shamelessly frank about saying exactly what they are.
