"I'm rubber and you're glue!"


Yeah, we're at that point in the campaign already:

House Speaker Paul Ryan said Tuesday that he wouldn't defend presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump's attacks on a federal judge's ethnicity because they were "indefensible."

"Claiming a person can't do their job because of their race is sort of like the textbook definition of a racist comment," Ryan said at a news conference. "I think that should be absolutely disavowed."


"Speaker Ryan is wrong and Speaker Ryan has apparently switched positions and is supporting identity politics, which is racist," Trump supporter Jeffrey Lord, a member of the Reagan administration, said on CNN Tuesday when asked about Ryan's concerns.

"I am accusing anybody, anybody who believes in identity politics, which he apparently now does, of playing the race card," Lord said. "The Republican establishment is playing this. Senator McConnell is playing this. These people have run and hid and borrowed the Democratic agenda of playing the race card. It is wrong."
I'm just trying to make sure I can kinda sorta find this stuff later, because I'm probably going to think I dreamt it.  Ryan's position, by the way, is that Trump says racist things, but the GOP still deserves to run the country and the country would still be better off with Trump in the White House.

Because it's not about race because it's never about race; or it's just okay Trump is a racist, because GOP. 

Or something.

It's all uphill from here.
