Trump is bringing down the Republican Party in the exact same way he successfully brought down Jeb Bush. What’s killer, for all of us, is that Jeb did what so many people wanted someone, anyone to do: he took an exasperated stand against Trump’s bigotry and delusional policies. And he did it repeatedly, with the most authority, legitimacy, and Republican Party credibility of any candidate in the race. He called Trump a “jerk” and a “chaos candidate,” he laid bare his impossible and downright silly policies, he said NO to the sickening bigotry towards Mexicans, Muslims, the disabled, and even President Obama. Jeb did what Priebus, Ryan, and McConnell haven’t yet done. Maybe that’s why Jeb lost this primary, but for those of us keeping a sanity score, he came out a winner.
