I was there in the audience when Donald Trump made his unfortunate comments about John McCain’s war record as a POW. And then followed it up by admitting to a room of thousands of evangelicals he’d never sought God’s forgiveness for anything in his life.
As I watched him come backstage to the green room after his obvious on-stage meltdown, I remember thinking this guy is toast. He’s finally given his skeptics the implosion moment they’ve been waiting for. There’s no way he can survive this.
But survive it he has. In fact, Trump 2016 is even stronger now than it was when I wrote about it here previously two weeks ago. Apparently even I have underestimated how many people are really fed up with the status quo, and that’s saying something.
