Trump Arrives at Cliff Edge. Doesn't Know How to Step Back.


Kudos to Chris Matthews. In a MSNBC "town hall" sit down with Donald Trump, Matthews forced Trump to get into his position on reproductive rights, specifically abortion and, best of all, he kept Trump on topic and just let him dig his own electoral grave.

Pick up the clip at the 9:45 mark.


Hillary wasted no time pouncing on Trump and she did a pretty good job of it. Some pundits say that Matthews has forever changed the way reporters will treat Trump from here on in. That ox is gored.

Trump's shallow and facile responses should be seen by everyone. A masterful job by Chris Matthews!

Again, I've said it before. Seems to me too much of a coincidence that Trump's even more outlandish behavior coincides nicely with a Hillary Clinton talking point right as she's losing momentum from Sanders's recent caucus/primary victories.

Some media types, Lorne, think Matthews has changed the dynamic between Trump and the media.

Hillary's "Trojan Horse" is the way some see Trump. Even if he's not I think he'd sooner see Clinton win the White House than any of his GOP colleagues, especially Cruz. Unless he gets the nomination at the Cleveland convention I think he could lead his supporters out of the GOP tent.
