This Is Ridiculous

Heaving sigh. This is where we are: The media is so desperate to turn this campaign into a horserace that they are quoting Donald Trump's shitcanned campaign manager as proof that Trump is definitely totally certainly absolutely for sure on his way to becoming presidential material.

Politico: "Ousted Trump aide: He's getting his act together."

No, no he is not. No more than he was the last time we heard he was "getting his act together." Or the time before that.

We are on an endless loop of promises that Trump is on the verge of becoming a reasonable, competent candidate—followed immediately by evidence that Trump is, in fact, not even remotely a reasonable, competent candidate.

The guy is a terrible person and a disaster candidate. That ain't gonna change.

And it would be really swell if we could all stop pretending that it could ever be otherwise.
