Just a reminder that when Donald Trump embarrasses you, frightens you, lies to you and otherwise mocks American Democracy, Wisconsin's Republican leadership stood with him and told you he was the best choice to be President. And when these Republican leaders come to your town or business or school - - or try to rewrite the record and slip away from the mess or the circus or the nightmare that Trump is already creating - - don't let them forget or deny that Trump belongs to them.
[Updated from 1/13 with news of Donald Trump's dishonest and disrespectful Twitter attack on US civil rights icon and Congressman John Lewis.]
Watched Trump's crazy news conference. And I remembered that one of the factors which helped to win Wisconsin - - and the Presidency - - was the backing of all sorts of experienced pols who told us Trump was supportable and Presidential:
Scott Walker. Paul Ryan. Ron Johnson. Sean Duffy. David Clarke. Cathy Stepp. Most of conservative talk radio.
Some of them saw Trump as a means to an end. A route to more power, or a job, or keeping special interests happy, or the cool proximity to a billionaire/TV personality.
We can argue from now to Doomsday - - and experts say Trump's cavalier embrace of a new nuclear arms race makes that no laughing matter - - about the impact on the outcome of flaws in Hillary Clinton's campaign and the very real interference by the FBI, the Russians and Wikileaks.
I don't downplay any of that.
But let's remember the Wisconsinites who organized the state for Trump and helped put him where he is right now, and thereby also helped put the rest of us and programs we need - - Obamacare, Medicaid, Medicare, Planned Parenthood, clean air and water guarantees - - in danger.
