But still: Last week, Trump said that he regretted saying hurtful things about people. And then his newest (temporary) campaign manager implied that things were changing.
That didn't last long. The Donald watched "Morning Joe" yesterday and then launched into one of his trademarked Twitter rants, because he didn't like what was said about him.
The man's skin is so thin, it might as well be made of cheap plastic wrap. Write or say something that The Donald doesn't like and he has an overpowering urge/need to strike back. So imagine that little thin-skinned, short-fingered psycho with the power to order around Federal cops, the armed forces, the DoJ and the IRS.Tried watching low-rated @Morning_Joe this morning, unwatchable! @morningmika is off the wall, a neurotic and not very bright mess!— Donald J.

But beyond that, if you're a Republican, I almost feel bad for you. The Democrats nominated their most beatable candidate in two generations and, through a long primary/caucus process, you folks chose somebody who is even worse.
Even Johnnie E. Bush would stand a good chance of beating Clinton like a Taiko drum. A Republican who could appeal to independents and right-of-center Democrats, such as Kaisch, would be mopping the floor with the Clinton campaign. Right now, Kaisch would be running a low-profile campaign and let Clinton twist in the glare of the continuing flap over her emails. Maybe toss in a few comments about the Clinton Foundation and whatnot and watch her poll numbers evaporate. The Democrats would be cursing Joe Biden for not running.
But no, not Trump. He cannot keep his yap shut. He persists in marching back and forth through a minefield whilst wearing clown shoes. He has an apparent compulsion to keep the spotlight on himself, even if he is insulting people or making a condescending pitch to people who despise him so much that, within the margin of error, he's lost the votes of people who won't be born for another five years.
With a moderate Republican candidate, the GOP wouldn't be worried about losing a lot of House seats. They wouldn't be contemplating losing control of the Senate. All of which they are now sweating.
But hey, you guys chose The Donald. Enjoy the ride.
