    WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In what is being hailed as a productive closed-door meeting between two leaders of the Republican Party, Donald J. Trump promised House Speaker Paul Ryan on Thursday that he would try to sound slightly less like the former German Chancellor Adolf Hitler....

    As an example, Trump said, “Instead of saying I am going to round up people based on their religion, I’ll say that’s just a suggestion. Just like that, I’m fifty per cent less Hitlerish.”...

    It's such a dilemma for Trump. The only way he can ingratiate himself with the GOP leadership (and gain access to the party's campaign funds) is to drop the base rhetoric that has made him so popular with the Trump trash and made him the presumptive nominee. Trump’s time as the presumptive nominee has already been dominated by policy flip-flops. It will all end in tears for him and the GOP.

    In your dreams bunk. If anyone is going down in defeat it is that crooked, incompetent, power hungry whore Hillary. Trump will verbally tear her incompetent, silver spooned ass to pieces. She is unqualified and unfit for the Presidency.

    I don't know how this will play out. Too many unknowns even this late in the game.

    The GOP might bend over for the convenience of a White House bid. What would they lose, their integrity? Their dignity?

    This shows me the benefit of a superdelegate-type system which, while it might keep out Bernie in a close race though I'd prefer his win, it would likely have kept out a Trump who I'd not want to risk. I know this sounds conservative of me, but I'd delay some progress for the hope of not stepping backwards.

    These are bizarre times in America & we're way too big to fail.

    While our founding fathers championed democracy, they also sought to prevent tyranny of the masses. Thus we've separation of powers, Constitutional limits, the Bill of Rights. We've rules for supermajorities which is where superdelegates can make some sense, that even if a con can sway a star struck plurality or a close majority, that shouldn't necessarily be enough to steal the rug from under a party.

    Why shouldn't it be enough. Why doesn't democracy always take precedence? How do we promote democracy while preventing tyranny?

    Trump is not acting like a Nazi. FDR did the same thing - being cautious until we know who is coming into our country. Hitler killed tens of thousands of people due to race and religion. You are buying into the lies of the left. Hillary is the one you should be fearing. Has anything she promised ever come to fruition? No. Have people died due to her actions or inaction? Yes and yes.

    Then why is Trump now backpedaling on his proposed Muslim ban, which was one of the pillars of his campaign? If he was right then, is he wrong now?

    Trump Backs Away from His Proposed ‘Muslim Ban’

    Since he locked up the Republican presidential nomination, Donald Trump has furiously backtracked on a number of key positions he took during the heated primary. As my colleague Jim Geraghty has written: “Within 24 hours of becoming the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump had reversed his positions on tax increases, paying down the debt, raising the minimum wage, and self-financing his campaign. It was a busy day.”

    Now, Trump seems to be backing away from one of the three signature issues (renegotiating trade agreements and building the border wall are the other two) that added rocket fuel to his quixotic presidential campaign: the “temporary Muslim entry ban.”

    He always said it was temporary to the dumbasses at the National Review. Also not a big change to allow exceptions if and when someone is vetted. That could have been inferred from the beginning.

    Really? In what part of “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” was Trump suggesting he would allow exceptions?

    Trump is the worst Republican nominee in memory. I remember Nixon well and barely remember Goldwater.

    The longer I've been around, the more I know about the risks of too much democracy. The American people would elect Hitler and later say, "who knew?"

    I know enough about Trump to say that he isn't a thoughtful person and doesn't have the qualities that I would want in a president. Obama has been, for the most part, a very good president.

    Hillary is the worst democratic candidate because all her "great accomplishments" have come from her riding on the coattails of effective, successful political leaders. Otherwise she has no leadership skills and only knows how to talk a big game. She was the most controversial and corrupt first lady in US history and everything she did was done in complete secrecy. She was a disastrous flop as Secretary of State and she was a do nothing US Senator who was only interested in furthering her own self aggrandizement at the expense of others. Hillary is totally unqualified and unfit to be President of the United States.

    Maureen Dowd on the rise of Trump:

    "Not since Pompeii have there been so many people caked in muck and frozen in varying poses of horror."
