Greg Dworkin rounds up the polls and the reviews the news: Donald Trump’s modest proposal to keep out Muslims is being widely condemned abroad and at home. The anger is bipartisan but it’s only a political inflection point if Republican leaders and candidates refuse to support him. But how did we get here? As calls go out to renounce his candidacy, Trump’s N.H. backers circle the wagons. So, why did he pick this time to attack Muslims? Meanwhile, Trump moves on to new targets. Liberals have been saying he’s a loser for some time now, but has Trump already won? And would he ever admit losing anyhow? By comparison, Hillary Clinton and the Dems continue to smoothly cruise.
No matter what bigotry exists in society, veteran’s cemeteries remain quite inclusive and welcoming.

Self-proclaimed serious guy Marco Rubio goes Dick Cheney by planting misinformation with the help of the AP in the interest of stoking fear and gaining votes.
