In a turn of poetic politics, Mike Pence told his running mate, Donald Trump, he wason his own for the next 48 hours, to clean up his own PR nightmare. Instead, Pence hopped on a plane and headed to Beechwood, Rhode Island for a fundraiser in the mansion of John Jacob Astor, who died on the Titanic in 1912.
Friday evening, House Speaker Paul Ryan disinvited Trump to his Wisconsin unity party and many Republican leaders followed in pulling their support. Trump’s 2005 hot mic on “Access Hollywood” seems to have revealed Trump’s views about women and has prompted many, even Republicans, particularly Republican women, to call it disgustingand inappropriate. At first, Trump issued a non-apology and then tried to give a second apology that some are calling a ransom video.
Many are predicting that this is the end or urging it on.
It’s quite the metaphor.
