The "Never Trump" movement appears to have achieved full-dissipation. Third Party plotter Bill Kristol admits he's "unhappy" and "depressed" while anti-Trump Sen. Ben Sasse earns a formal "reprimand" from Republican voters in Nebraska. Megadonor Sheldon Adelson signs on for Trump and columnist Dana Milbank literally "eats his words with a fork and spoon." We examine the refined & exquisite "conscience" of Never Trumpers as we offer a range of subtle, gentle and good-natured attempts to persuade them back unto today's GOP. But even so, are "blacklists" in the offing? Why has the Washington Post assigned no less than 20 reporters to investigate Trump? Bob Woodward stumbles through an explanation, while Donald Trump ascribes unwholesome motives to WaPo owner Jeff Bezos. Meanwhile, a struggling Hillary Clinton continues to unify Republicans far more than Democrats. With music and listener calls.
