TRUMP HAS A MASSIVE ACHILLES' HEEL, AND EVAN McMULLIN MAY HAVE LOCATED IT

No one's paying much attention to Evan McMullin, the conservative who entered the presidential race a couple of weeks ago, but he's making a concerted effort to raise his profile with this interview:
Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin told Business Insider in a Wednesday interview that members of Republican nominee Donald Trump's campaign have told him that the Manhattan billionaire has times where he "hides in his apartment" and they're growing "frustrated."

... McMullin said that it's "unclear" whether Trump "will make it through this campaign."

... "I'm hearing from people inside his campaign that there are times now when he hides in his apartment and doesn't meet with any people," he continued. "When he campaigns he goes out to a place he has to fly back home to New York. This is a fragile man and a fragile campaign and I'm not quite sure what's going to happen in the days and weeks ahead of him. I'm not sure the [Republican National Committee] can continue to support him given his weakness as a man and as a politician and as a candidate for the presidency."
"His weakness as a man"! "This is a fragile man"! It's calculated, but I love it. I don't agree with McMullin on many issues, but this interview was clearly an effort to get Trump to drop whatever he's doing and spend three days attacking McMullin. Unfortunately, the interview was at Business Insider, and I'm not sure Trump even knows that Business Insider exists.

Chris? Rachel? Lawrence? I don't think Trump watches much MSNBC (even though his campaign manger was on the Maddow show tonight), but MSNBC is television, so Trump can easily absorb it. One of you, plase, book an interview with McMullin. Let him talk -- but steer him to this subject. I'm sure he'd be more than happy to repeat what he told Business Insider on national TV. Then we can all pop some popcorn and watch Trump's reaction.

Trump is a master of projection. All his carrying on about Clinton's health is a sure indicator something is wrong with his - physical or mental - so I wouldn't be at all surprised if this is true.

Naw. This is a Roger Stone special. The Yam doesn't believe this crap, but will use it to undermine Hillary.

Assange interview with Fox. You guys have more problems than Trump.
And I glean that your solution is to deal with it like Clinton does with press conferences.

I'm sorry. Did a rapist apologist just say something?

Oh, so a "progressive" convicts without even a show trial?
Figures if he's hiding behind Clinton's skirts.
