I don’t know if we’ve ever seen a presidential campaign unravel like Donald Trump’s has in the last couple days. One of the downsides of the #TwitterAge is that there is smart commentary coming fast and furiously (also dumb commentary, but ignore that), and it is hard to keep track of it. Here are two threads from the past 24 hours that I thought were especially incisive and, in the second case, terrifying.
The first, a thread from journalist Judd Legum on the politics of endorsing and unendorsing Trump, and why many GOP politicians are now stuck in a corner of their own making.
The second is a much more terrifying thread, this time from John Noonan, who did national security for both Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney. This is one of the many examples of why opposing Trump is more than just a political issue–it’s an issue of national and global safety.
