Repubicans who endorse Trump face questions about his weird stands on the issues

Leon Wolf:
Right now, there have to be a lot of Republicans who are sitting on the fence about endorsing Trump. If Trump gets the nomination, there will be a lot more. Republican candidates for office will face an unprecedentedly tough question: do I hop on the Trump train or go it on my own?

Here’s something for all those candidates to consider: look at what’s happened over the last 24 hours after Trump’s three ridiculous answers on abortion. This is going to be your life for the next four months if you cast your lot in with Trump. Every time you go on television – every time you have an interview with literally anyone, you’re going to be asked about the latest insane thing Donald Trump has said.

Every. Single. Time.

You know it’s true. If you think the media is obsessed with Trump now, wait until he’s the official nominee of the Republican party. Wait until he’s a legitimate cudgel to beat each and every single one of you with. And wait until attacking Trump means protecting Hillary Clinton in an official way. You will literally never be able to be in front of a microphone without being asked about Trump.

It is already happening.  Scott Brown who has endorsed Trump got that treatment in an interview last night.  He was smart enough not to defend the indefensible, but the questions will keep coming.

All the goofy things Trump is saying are drowning out the coverage of his opponents in the race, who are also being asked about what Trump is saying rather than about the real issues.  Trump has become a cancer that is swallowing up rational candidates with rational views on the issues.

Trump's big issue of a border fence now has negative support.
