Trump owns the WI GOP congressional delegation

Want to see just how deep is the support for Trump's racist remarks in the Wisconsin GOP congressional delegation?

The Washington Post tracks the reactions of the entire GOP congressional delegation.

US Rep. Mike Gallagher, R-Green Bay, offered tepid disapproval of Trump's "mean tweets," principally on policy grounds. 

It was something, but not much.

The rest of our state's Republican members of Congress either endorsed what Trump had said - Duffy and Grothman - - or, like Ron Johnson, Sensenbrenner and Stell, gave Trump their approval by bobbing, weaving or just hiding out. 

I don't see a profile in courage among them.

File under "Party of Lincoln No More."
