Can Priebus tame the toddler: 70 repugs demand no more money for Trump.

http://www.politico.com/story/2016/08/republicans-urge-rnc-cut-funds-trump-226918

Looks like the end might be near.

Though the whole letter is not available on Politico, the reason given for the denying Trump that he's hurting the party.

DON'T WORRY: NO REPUG SEEMED TO TAKE A MORAL STAND.

Trump is not unstable.

That is not to say that there are not other names for his actions.

But for a long time he has had stable relationships with family and run a business. He sets goals and goes after them. This is not instability.

What he has constructed is a way to get what he wants and, guess what, it works.

He says whatever he feels the situation calls for; he can turn on a dime and repudiate his last statement; he attacks others viciously if they disagree with him.

In the small world he has created for himself, this is a winning strategy. On a larger stage, say a presidential campaign, this might not work so well. He can't walk away from situations he doesn't like, he can't silence his critics, he can't view relationships except as real estate deals.

In fact, he is now doubling down on this strategy even though he knows that it doesn't seem to be working.

Oh, and he blames his failures on some one else.

Lying about his security briefings before getting them.

The worst of Trump's claim about the Iran money transfer video is that there was some talk that he had seen it in a security briefing:

"There was speculation that perhaps Trump saw the footage during one of the classified security briefings provided to presidential nominees, but Trump's campaign chairman Paul Manafort said in an interview on Fox News earlier in the day that those briefings have not yet begun."

Not only is Trump capable of revealing classified information, he is capable of lying about what that information is.

This is truly dangerous.
