Trump may ask Rudy Giuliani to raise the level of terrorized Trump voters going into the election. With no real economic beliefs, what is the GOP but a white nationalist party?

Greg Dworkin reports that after the West, By God, Virginia primaries, the race is still about race. How did Trump happenRacial resentment sure helped. Heidi Cruz says Cruz ’16 was like fighting slavery, but took less time. Greg makes sense of the polling that says nearly half of W.Va. Sanders backers would vote Trump.

How can Clinton help the Sanders revolution? How can Sanders help the Clinton election? Paul Ryan has nothing to gain from helping Donald Trump.

House Republicans acknowledge that they’ll miss the new budget deadline, really didn’t know their job was going to be this hard, and will take a vacation now. Maybe they will come back and write an easier one.

Joan McCarter missed the previous KITM Joan McCarter Wednesday, so she has a lot of information to share:

The Senate comes back to work, but they have little to show for it. Ted Cruz makes his triumphant return to the Senate, Tom Cotton may not get to play anymore. Koch & Rove money isn’t going to Trump, but senators aren’t about to leave it on the table. Chuck Grassley quit having a problem with Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell hopes to ignore him and hopes Trump will go away. The Koch brothers blow 2 million dollars on false ads against Russ Feingold. 

Unfortunately for almost everyone, thousands of pictures of naked defendants on a judge’s computer are not going away.
