Can The Donald be stopped? Last night we saw protesters and Trump supporters come to blows. Is Donald Trump responsible for the violence? No he is not directly responsible but his irresponsible rhetoric helped to create a hostile environment. Trump was peddling birther conspiracy theories in 2011 and many networks most notable NBC gave him the microphone and the podium. The Republicans turned their heads. Last night Trump took he circus to Chicago. He is taking his message to an urban area and he found out it is different in the city. Holding rallies at airplane hangers is a safe space for his toxic message, but when you take your message to a place that has a bus route you run the risk of running into some of the people you routinely vilify and that is what happened last night. Trump took his message to the street and the street responded. It was not pretty and Trump is not the only one with dirty hands. Too many people have been silent for too long. Last night was sad but what will be sadder is if Trump actually becomes the nominee.

Really Dr. Carson you are going to support Donald Trump? Trump the man that mocked you and called you pathological? Why would you want to support him. Isn’t Ted Cruz the more logical pairing? Carson could forgive Trump but not Cruz. So the noted brain surgeon is throwing his support behind the tough talking New Yorker? Can we say Surgeon General? Share your thoughts.

People magazine has become so youth obsessed that I was surprised to see Nancy Reagan on this week’s cover. This magazine seems to have a cut off age of 40 for the cover. We have lost a number of noted seniors and they do well to get one of the small boxes on the side but rarely the cover. I’m happy they decided to have the former First lady on the cover but the photo is also an interesting choice. It’s like going to the funeral of a 90 year old and the picture on the obituary is of her 40 year old self. That’s what People did but youth sells.
Donald Trump has been allowed to call into all the morning news shows except CBS This Morning. When he calls in he dominates the conversation and frequently talks over the interviewer, but they let him do it. Kudos to CBS for just saying no. Read the linked story and share your thoughts.

When Donald Trump was asked if he denounced the support of David Duke he said on Friday he did. By Sunday he claimed he didn’t even know who David Duke was. By Monday he claimed he did not hear the question. So what are we to believe? Or is the real question does it even matter. The media has give the Trumpster a pass from day one. he has not been held to any kind of scrutiny. He has been allowed to do and say anything. He has been a ratings boon to the unwatched cable news channels. (Just asks MSNBC Morning Joe) So outrageous has been the name of the game, but a funny thing happened Thursday night. His opponents stop basking in his glow and actually started firing some shots his way. Marco Rubio continued the assault into the weekend and it looked like a couple of brats taking shots at each other. The only thing missing were some “yo Mama” jokes. So will any of this slow Trump’s roll? No, he said months ago he could shoot someone and his followers would still vote for him. So embracing a Klansman won’t change one thing.
