*widget boy cultureABOVE: Hillary hits Trump hard, using his own words, on women's issues.

*widget boy cultureI love that Carl Reiner, 94, is so outspokenly anti-Trump. So, of course, is his not-so-meat-headed son, Rob Reiner, 69. They're Twitter angels for Hillary!

*widget boy cultureRomney (pains me to say) brilliantly predicts “trickle-down racism” from a Trump Administration, Whitman compares Trump to Hitler, Mussolini,  I compare him to this.

*widget boy cultureRev. Jesse Jackson endorses Hillary: “We trust her to work on health care, to fight for the poor ...” Meanwhile, Don King never endorsed Trump.

*widget boy cultureTop Sanders surrogate is still fighting the not-so-good fight, this time saying Elizabeth Warren shouldn't get “brownie points” for attacking Trump.

6a00d8341c2ca253ef01bb08e9cf88970d-800wiJ.K. Simmons got totally jacked for his new movie. I'm sure he just did lots of pull-ups and ate his Wheaties.

Elizabeth Warren to endorse Hillary Clinton for president. Cue #NeverHillarys describing flames on the sides of their faces.

6-PACK/politics — Sanders Admits System Isn't RIGGED, Just DUMB + Hillary Zaps Trump On Shameless Veteran-Donations Debacle + Hawking Brands Trump A DEMAGOGUE + Billy Joel Lightly Mocks Trump, Receives Thanks + Mr. French + Trans Victory! Comments (0)

*widget boy cultureSanders walks back idea the Democratic primary is “rigged”: “[N]ot rigged. I think it’s just a dumb process which has certainly disadvantaged our campaign.”

*widget boy cultureHillary Clinton dings Trump on his embarrassing military-veteran donation gaffe—half of his donations were sent the day he was shamed over it.

*widget boy cultureStephen Hawking calls Trump a “demagogue” who appeals to “the lowest common denominator.” Trump is dying to mock his physical limitations, call him a loser.

*widget boy cultureI think Billy Joel's a dick anyway, but taking Trump in such a lighthearted way and dedicating—I get it, sarcastically—a song to him is annoying. Trump isn't entertaining.

*widget boy cultureDavid French seems to be the conservative who will run as an Independent to help defeat Trump. Mitt Romney likes what he sees so far.

Donald Trump Promises To Release Tax Returns—If He's Elected! Or Sooner ... Maybe Comments (0)

In a Tuesday interview with the AP, Donald Trump stated unequivocally that he would not release his taxes until after the election, citing an audit.

I don't know who the last candidate was to not release their taxes, but it is unprecedented in recent years. (Bernie has similarly stalled, releasing only his 2014 return—complete with some interesting deductions.)

Mitt Romney, another rich man who was reluctant to release his taxes (but, to his credit, eventually did), posted a scathing critique of Trump on his Facebook page that explicitly refers to Trump's decision as “disqualifying.”

The Republican schism makes Hillary vs. Bernie look like Sonny vs. Cher—in the skits, pre-divorce.

Mitt's post:

One day later, once this decision hit the fan, Trump blasted his critics and said he never meant he wouldn't release his tax returns, only that he would release them after the “routine audit” was completed.

Whenever that is.

Mitt Romney To GOP: A TIME FOR CHOOSING (Don't Choose CON MAN Trump) Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-03-03 at 2.41.41 PM(Video still via PBS NewsHour)

Mitt Romney failed to unseat President Obama in 2012, largely because he was a stiff as a candidate and he had a demonstrable distaste for the middle class.

Today, four short years later, he may be “no Reagan,” as he says, but he sounds and looks like Gandhi compared to Donald Trump, whom he blasts repeatedly in the speech below (SPOILER ALERT: He also detests the Clintons) ...

President Trump? President Clinton? Super Tuesday Conclusions Comments (0)
Above, Trump's giddy victory speech

Super Tuesday was a Super Disaster for the GOP, with Trump taking seven states (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Virginia, Vermont), Cruz taking two (Oklahoma and Texas) and Rubio finally winning one (Minnesota). Alaska remains uncalled as it is a late-starting contest.

Rubio insists that he's got a path to the nomination and is in it to win it, forcing an unconvincing grin as he spoke to FOX News:

Hillary crushed Bernie in Alabama, American Samoa (don't laugh, they have tons of delegates compared to their tiny population), Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee, Virginia and Texas, and won by about 2-3% in Massachusetts. Sanders won more states than he might have: Colorado, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Vermont, the latter of which—his home state—was his only bloodbath, but he won by convincing margins in the others.

Hillary's victory speech: 

After tonight, Hillary has an easy path to the nomination, Sanders has almost no path. No longer “a serious presidential contender,” Sanders vowed to fight on, though, and will continue to shape the conversation.

Trump is far and away the favorite to gain the nomination, but with Cruz and Rubio staying in, the GOP moves ever closer to a contested convention, in which Trump could be denied the nomination in favor of Cruz, Rubio, or just about anyone else the GOP picks (Paul Ryan?). If that were to happen, Trump wouldn't just accept his fate.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) thinks Cruz—whom he despises—may be the GOP's only hope, and that Hillary would beat Trump “like a drum.”

A former top Romney strategist just came right out and said Hillary would be preferable to Trump, which is a conclusion to which I have to believe a lot of voting GOPers would come.

Or are we gearing up for President Trump in January?
