Scott Walker has not denounced Donald Trump today

[Updated from 10:40 p.m. Tuesday, August 15th] 

Nothing but regular Walker fare - - Foxconn and tourism p.r. - - on Walker's Twitter feed (a similar nothing on his official state Twitter account, too) - - many hours after Donald Trump, the leader of his party, equated people protesting racism, anti-semitism and Nazism with people embracing and racism, anti-semitism and Nazism.

Fair to say that Walker is no Mitt Romney, Marco Rubio, Jeff Flake, etc. et al.

Numerous Republican leaders have called Trump out for using the Presidency to give aid and comfort to neo-nazis, KKK flag-wavers, anti-semites and Donald Duke, but not Walker.

One moral failing and failure enables another moral failing and failure; American and Wisconsin are diminished and endangered.

I'm reminded of Walker's debate with David Duke. He couldn't summon the courage to denounce Duke for his blatnt racism, why? because doing so may have caused alienation with the base.
