    The implosion over Donald Trump’s candidacy that Republicans had hoped to avoid arrived so virulently this weekend that many party leaders vowed never to back the billionaire and openly questioned whether the GOP could come together this election year.

    At a moment when Republicans had hoped to begin taking on Hillary Clinton — who is seemingly on her way to wrapping up the Democratic nomination — the GOP has instead become consumed by a crisis over its identity and core values that is almost certain to last through the July party convention, if not the rest of the year.

    A campaign full of racial overtones and petty, R-rated put-downs grew even uglier Sunday after Trump declined repeatedly in a CNN interview to repudiate the endorsement of him by David Duke, a former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Trump had disavowed Duke at a news conference on Friday, but he stammered when asked about Duke on Sunday.

    Just sad. From what I saw this past weekend, I wouldn't vote for anyone on the Republican side if you paid me. It was just beyond childish. I was embarrassed for them.

    Yes, it is embarrassing. I think Rubio and Cruz have been holding back on getting down into the gutter with Trump because they didn't think they had to do it, were waiting for Trump to implode. Unfortunately, thanks to Trump's methods they have to fight fire with fire, and it appears to be working.

    None of the Republican candidates are fit to become President. The world is laughing at the circus the Republican debates have become.
