Patrick J. Buchanan, BernardGoldberg.com

What does Trump need to do? In the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, “Keep your eyes on the prize” — the presidency. And between Trump and the presidency today stands not Paul Ryan, but Hillary Clinton. The Donald, his campaign, and party need to cease attacking one another to the elation of a hostile media, and redirect all their fire on the sole obstacle between them and a Republican sweep.

The Week They Decided He Was Crazy

Peggy Noonan, Wall Street Journal

From what I’ve seen there has been zero reflection on the part of Republican leaders on how much the base’s views differ from theirs and what to do about it.

Howard Kurtz, Fox News

Anti-Trump Journalist Makes The Case For Trump

Who Isaac Chotner and Glenn Greenwald – reliably liberal to their cores – support for President isn’t really important, the key takeaway from the interview is that the media elite are united in their support for Hillary Clinton and they are also united in their complete and utter contempt for America’s working families who are looking for relief – any relief – from the elite oppression they have suffered for the past three decades.

The Elite Get A Well Deserved Bullying From Donald Trump

Country class voters know a bully when they see one, and they believe they are being bullied daily by an out-of-touch and insulated elite that holds them in contempt, they understand that the guy who punches your oppressor in the mouth isn’t a bully, he’s your champion. If Donald Trump is a bully, then he’s the much needed counter-bully the country class has been waiting for.

Trump on Offense

William McGurn, Wall Street Journal

The truth is that Mr. Trump’s offense is in good part a creature of the campaigns Democrats have run against Republicans for decades. Sooner or later it was inevitable that voters, tired of both political correctness and playing defense, would opt for a Republican nominee who would give as ugly as he got.
