Republican Establishment Still Thinks It Can Control Trump

The RNC believes that they can now control Donald Trump. Not in the primaries, but in the general election. They claim to have leverage. They don’t. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“Ultimately, this post is about Reince Priebus, the theatrically incompetent chairman of the Republican National Committee, and his latest attempt to persuade the GOP establishment that he’s not as impotent and helpless as Donald Trump makes him look…

The plan, in other words, is to persuade the man who ran roughshod over the entire party establishment to do what that very same establishment tells him is best. The idea, presumably, is that the candidate who won by flamboyantly breaking all of the unwritten rules will suddenly listen to those he vanquished. Why? Because of … voter data. And field operations. And so he doesn’t sound “inflammatory” or “divisive.”

Calling this one of the stupidest, most pathetic, most denial-ridden and ridiculous strategies in the history of high-stakes American politics may be understating the case.”*

Republican Establishment Planning Party Coup If Voters Pick Trump

Republican Establishment Planning Party Coup If Voters Pick Trump

GOP leaders met this week to discuss what to do if they end up next year with a contested convention… if they have to use political tricks to block Donald Trump. The GOP apparently doesn’t mind ignoring the will of their voters. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola (Think Tank), Jimmy Dore (The Jimmy Dore Show Podcast), and Mark Thompson, hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“More than 20 top GOP officials discussed at a dinner on Monday the party’s strategy in the event of a brokered convention amid Donald Trump’s consistent lead in the polls.

Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Reince Priebus and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) listened as several longtime party members argued the establishment must lay the groundwork for a floor fight if Trump storms through the presidential primaries, five sources familiar with the meeting told The Washington Post.

The sources said Priebus and McConnell were mostly silent during the deliberation and did not signal support for an explicit anti-Trump effort.

But both men did acknowledge that a stalemated convention is something the party should be ready for.”*

Tonight’s Catfight: Donald Trump vs. The Republican Establishment. Trump has been leading for three months now, and the GOP is starting to panic because Trump doesn’t listen to them. Cenk Uygur, host of the The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“On Friday, Donald Trump generated substantial controversy when he asserted that George W. Bush was president at the time of the 9/11 attacks.

“When you talk about George Bush, I mean, say what you want, the World Trade Center came down during his time,” Trump said. “He was president, O.K.?”

Jeb Bush immediately pushed back, calling Trump’s comments “pathetic” and insisting “my brother kept us safe.”

The media jumped on to the burgeoning controversy. According to The New York Times the idea that Bush was president on 9/11 and failed to stop the attack is a “break from the GOP.””*
