With just 25 days left before the presidential election, it appears that the candidacy of Republican nominee Donald Trump is in utter freefall...dri...

As for Donald Trump himself, he lived to be 100 years old, dying in 2046 of natural causes. Following the election he spent his remaining years a virtual pariah. A broken man socially, emotionally and financially. Alone and alienated from family and the few friends he had. And, he never apologized... for anything.
Donald Trump may be toast.
The Trump candidacy exposes the GOP's grievous fractures; his defeat would further aggravate them in unpredictable but surely damaging ways which will be difficult to navigate.
Go ahead. Try to be something scarier than this election.
Political incorrectness is not why decent people feel revulsion at what Trump says and does. Decent people object because what he says and does is indecent, ignorant and wrong.
The audience, when the debate actually happens, will be huge. Tremendous, in fact. Some (we won't say who) are even predicting it could be a bigger television event worldwide than the 1969 moon landing.

Trump begins the week with the WSJ urging the RNC to cut him loose if he can't turn around his floundering campaign by Labor Day...and ends it with the Bannon-Manafort shuffle. Cooke & Lamarche laugh off the chance he can stop scratching his attention-getting-disorder itch. GOP prospects Nov. 9?
In Trump's warped world, it might be enough to vaguely say that you have regrets. But Trump owes the people he has attacked and bullied so much more than that.
Like a man embracing his bride while coyly winking over his shoulder at one of his wedding party guests, Donald Trump used the GOP convention to stir passion among the party base while lightly romancing LGBT people.
A sure sign that a campaign is failing is when the candidate blames the press for his problems. The latest example is Republican presidential nomine...
