Jake Tapper on Trump's Charge: Shameful!

This is how decent people respond to Donald Trump.

And why CNN is beating Fox News in the coveted 25-54 demo.
CNN was the No. 1 cable news network of the week in A25-54. This is only the third time CNN has won three consecutive weeks in the last 15 years. CNN finished No. 14 in prime time and Fox News finished No. 18 in all of basic cable last week.

Unfortunately, Trump will most likely be the nominee. I got a Kasich flyer in the mail today, right around the time he was bowing out.

Yep. He'll be the nominee. I'm following Reagan's example (though it was done on a much more honorable and lucid man). Reagan didn't endorse Ford, campaign for him or vote for him in 1976.

"I was at that convention and remember President Ford’s acceptance speech.

"It was classic Ford: a little dull and monotone. Ultimately, Reagan was called out of the gallery to address the convention. Some Reagan supporters believe Ford did that in the hope Reagan would embarrass himself by speaking without a script. But Reagan had prepared to address the convention and delivered his acceptance speech. It was couched in the context of where our country should go. It was substantive and vibrant and delivered with the passion Reagan brought to his best speeches. At its conclusion, Reagan endorsed the Republican platform but not Ford.

"The substance of what he did was not missed by anyone. David S. Broder, the highly regarded Post columnist, later wrote that the 1976 Republican convention was unique in political history, because it was the only time the delegates heard two acceptance speeches. Reagan later declined all pleas from Ford to speak on his behalf in key states."


O'Reilly claims neither Reagan nor his wife voted for Ford in 1976.
