Leave it to the eGOP to hold out hope to the last minute that they can de-throne Trump as the nominee and get one of their own in to maintain the corruption base. Some, … many eGOP sleazes who grabbed onto Trump’s coattails after he convincingly won the nomination, have now thrown him under the bus, after his crude comments were aired on Friday. Many have withdrawn their previous endorsements.
And while you would, of course, expect the left, like NPR to be completely knicker twisted over the events of last week, such behavior from Republicans, even RINO Republicans is on step too far, just weeks before the election.
Prominent Republicans are calling on him to drop out and elected officials are running from him and fast. See the full list of Republicans calling on Trump to step down at the bottom on this post.

The candidate isn’t backing down, telling the Washington Post’s Robert Costa in an interview today, “I’d never withdraw. I’ve never withdrawn in my life.”
