And now, Trump refuses to disavow the Klan- and "Powerline" wonders whether he's a Democratic agent!

Yeah. It's that bad. Just when you think this Trump thing couldn't get any weirder....

Trump refuses to disavow the Ku Klux Klan.

Sometimes elements of the Right can get a trifle paranoid. But note that the article linked to above actually questions whether perhaps Trump- a longtime Democrat whose conversion to the Party Previously of Lincoln is very recent- might not be a Democratic plant, an agent provocateur to bring out the dark side in the GOP rank-and-file while torpedoing the party's chances of winning in November.

I am not given to conspiracy theories, and it does seem a stretch.

Well, no.

I don't buy it, precisely because I'm adverse to conspiracy theories. But the scary thing is that Trump and the whole Trump phenomenon is so bizarre that it doesn't seem a stretch at all!
