The presidency is the highest office in the country, and the people aspiring to run for this office, in general, have respected it. Too bad for the GOP that Donald Trump came along and set fire to any standard of decency. Now that he has top officials have acknowledged that “Trump Sitting” is now required just to keep him from further destroying his own campaign.
@SteveKornacki reporting that Reince & other Rep leaders are now taking turns “Trumpsitting” —traveling w him & helping him stay on message.

Reince Priebus, the RNC chair, was the latest to try on the occupation, which has been defined as “not letting Trump travel alone” to “keep him on message.”
It seems that damage control has become the number one job of all top Republicans, and it is easy to see why.

Yes, folks, the candidate selected to run by the Republicans is so spastic in his dissemination of verbal diarrhea that they can’t let him travel or speak alone.
Notably absent from Trump fantasy day care: books & nap mats. Explains why he's ignorant & cranky. Next #Trumpsitting pro should get on that

They know it, he knows it (under the false premise that “all publicity is good publicity”) and they are losing the election because of it.
America doesn't need a spoiled 70 year old toddler in the White House. #Trumpsitting

So, when Priebus unexpectedly appeared on stage with Trump at a recent rally, it wasn’t in support, it was in the desperate hope he could keep Trump from further damaging the GOP with his mere presence. They are that frantic, and they have good reason to be.

What should be making all Americans sick to their stomachs is this: he is still competitive. There are actually people willing to vote for the racist, xenophobic, bigoted, misogynistic, lying, flim-flam fraud: some because they have bought into the conspiracy theories and others because he is “their kind of people.”

Everyone that knows he doesn’t represent their worldview, which is all but a scant third of the US population, should be laughing all the way to the polls to show that America is not what he thinks it is. And by the way, being great is about being great for ALL Americans, not just the rich ones.
It is time, America, to tell that wannabe emperor, he has no clothes.
