After Roseanne Barr attacked an African American former Obama aide by claiming she looks like the Muslim Brotherhood and Planet of the Apes had a baby, Twitter converged into a sea of condemnation for the now-Trump-supporting TV star.

House Republicans have embraced Trump’s win-for-Trump-at-all-costs philosophy.

Think of them as the kind of cowards who would never jump on a hand grenade, but would instinctively push the person next to them onto the explosive. This is a political extension of the economic philosophy that we’ve got ours, tough for you, in Republican tax, spend and regulatory policy,
