Is this not, after all, much like a reality TV show, a genre of which Donald Trump was once a part? The most humane view of this crisis shows Trump to be just a normal person. "I did something bad and now I have apologized just like my advisers told me to."

But this is not just an ordinary person. This is a candidate for President of the most powerful nation on earth. We can and must do better. Evidently, on Saturday members of the Congressional leadership still thought otherwise.
If readers are in any doubt about my position, it is still the same: Stop Hate. Dump Trump.
