Fair Weather Fats
The tsunami's begun: Dozens of Republicans are fleeing the Trump-Pence trainwreck — 50 national security pooh-bahs, former members of Congress, current members of Congress, moneybag gubernatorial candidates... even RNC staffers. See, children, this is what happens to your party when you nominate a sociopath for President.
But Trump can take comfort that two of his besties are still out there, sticking up for him: Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich.
Yup, Rootie and Nootie are making the rounds, defending Trump's verbal threats and abuse with gusto. Nothing seems to discourage them — even if the entire GOP manages to slink away and hide until Wednesday, November 9. They are undeterred!
But — hey, wait. There's somebody else who should be out on the campaign and talking-head trail. Where, oh where, is Chris Christie, who was so quick to endorse Trump back in February?
We could be wrong, but we haven't seen Chris Christie since he worked so hard to whip up the bloodthirsty crowd on the second night of the Republican National Convention.
How do you lose a 400-pound governor? We cats HISS.
