Mike's Blog Round Up
May 13, 2016

Okay, it's back to Trump today. But, really, what's the point of ignoring him? It's not like he's going away, and it's not like denying him attention will mean denying him the Republican nomination. Iacta alea est, after all. You can barely see the Rubicon in the rear-view mirror. So let's focus instead on calling out Trump for what he really is. And if the media insist on propping him up and refusing to call him out in any meaningful way, well, let's do what we have to do to puncture his inflated persona and expose the dangerous, bigoted loser that is the truth behind the thin veneer of BS.

Lance Mannion: Ignorance is Trump's bliss.

Lawyers, Guns & Money: Trump is a potential catastrophe.

No More Mister Nice Blog: Newt is perfect for Trump.

The Rude Pundit: Trump is upsetting Evangelicals.

Outside the Beltway: Trump is full of you know what.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings.) I'll be here through the weekend.
