Despite being given tacit permission to not back Donald Trump by her own party leader, Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, our Republican congressional representative, Elise Stefanik, recently told a northern New York newspaper that she would back Trump as her party's nominee. Stefanik didn't issue a rousing, or even specific, endorsement. But now that Trump is the presumptive nominee, she was asked whether she would support the Republican Party nominee, and she said yes. So hurrah! Stefanik for Trump, and who knows what other reality TV stars, liars, panderers, flip-floppers, ignoramuses and bigots. (Those last two often go together. The rest of the appalling brew is Trump's own unique mix.)
