In the wake of Donald Trump's public war of words with the parents of a dead war hero and whatever disgust at it his own party could muster, insiders are claiming his own campaign manager has given up trying to influence him. With his standing in opinion polls headed south with alarming speed, Trump's staff are reportedly "suicidal".
I exchanged messages Tuesday evening with a longtime ally of Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, whom I asked about who was calling the shots in the campaign.

Today, though, CNN reports that there's open civil war in the GOP: the party is panicking over what'll happen to the rest of the ticket should Trump get trounced by Hillary Clinton in November.
