Sunday Morning Bobblehead Thread

Donald Trump has been wrapping up the White Supremacists vote quite nicely of late, but don't expect that topic to dominate any of these Sunday talking head shows. I'm sure they'll all be too busy talking about the latest insults the remaining occupants of the GOP Clown Car are lobbing at each other, the presidential horse race and talking about the never ending string of polls we're bombarded with week after week.

The presidential candidates are dominating the guest lists once again this Sunday, along with the usual right wing talking heads and both-siderist Villagers we've come to expect as regulars on these shows week after week.

Here's what's on the menu for this Sunday from the Orlando Sentinel (check your local listings for air times in your area): Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Bernie Sanders: Sunday guests:
