    In the Republican Debate, Here’s What to Look For
    By THE NEW YORK TIMES FEB. 25, 2016

    Donald J. Trump has won three nominating contests in a row, and Thursday night’s face-off in Houston is the last best chance for his rivals to slow him down before Super Tuesday next week, when 12 states will vote. We asked New York Times political reporters what they would be looking for in the Republican debate.

    Donald Trump’s intolerable cruelty

    I may never forgive Donald Trump for what he said about Mexicans. I may never forgive him for what he said about Muslims or that smutty crack he made about Megyn Kelly. I may never forgive him for his lies and his bravado and his nasty personalizing of political differences. I may never forgive him for all these things, but I draw the line at Serge Kovaleski, the reporter with a congenital condition that limits mobility . Trump mocked him. I will never forgive him for that.

    This happened in November, and I’m sure you know about it, but it has been left in the dust kicked up by further Trump outrages that include a denial that he ever did what in fact he did. He twisted his body in approximation of Kovaleski’s. Trump not only denied doing it, but he denied knowing about Kovaleski’s condition, despite having been interviewed by him on several occasions.

    Kovaleski now works at the New York Times, but he was once a colleague of mine at The Post. I used to see him in the vast newsroom and wonder about him and admire him as well. His disability, called arthrogryposis, is instantly noticeable. It forces him to hold his arms in a distinctive way.

    My guess is that he could have done anything he wanted. He’s a graduate of the College of William and Mary and talented enough to have worked at two of the best American newspapers. He could have been a lawyer or an accountant or a hedge-fund honcho — you name it. What I’m saying is that he could have made a pretty good living sitting behind a desk and not, on a daily basis, confronting people who are unprepared for his appearance. Every day as a reporter, he must see the double take of the surprised.

    Trump’s other outrages arguably had an element of political calculation to them. The stuff about Mexicans, about immigrants in general, and about Muslims was popular among his supporters. It’s not that I think these insults were disingenuous — the man’s bigotry was evident when he insistently questioned whether Barack Obama was a natural-born American — but they applied to large groups, momentarily unpopular, and no single person either had to bear a stigma or feel the hurt. Trump came closest to showing his innate cruelty with his remark that John McCain, who spent five years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, was no hero. Trump has an adolescent’s contempt for the suffering of others.

    With his recent victory in South Carolina, we have to face the prospect that Trump could be the Republican nominee, possibly the next president of the United States. It’s a depressing thought. He’s crass and dishonest, a bully in a bespoke suit. But he’s also cruel, as evinced by his crack about McCain and, more particularly, his mocking of Kovaleski. After all, McCain’s heroism is beyond question and a personal attribute. His captivity, his tortures, may not be fully behind him, but it is in the past. Not so Kovaleski’s condition. It’s with him every day.

    Trump has his charms. But he’s a towel-snapper — a rich kid who has always had it easy. He has never had the character-building setbacks that sometimes season the callow — Franklin D. Roosevelt’s polio or Robert F. Kennedy’s loss of his brother John, for instance. These are the sorts of things that reduce the rich to the powerlessness of the poor. Trump has none of that. He lives in a pre-Copernican world of his own. The sun revolves around him.

    Brett Duncan Smith, a University of Georgia student, drove 90 miles last week to see John Kasich in Clemson, S.C. Smith was distraught. A year before, the man “who was like my second dad, he killed himself,” Smith told Kasich. “And then a few months later, my parents got a divorce, and then a few months later, my dad lost his job.” Smith went on like this, and finally asked Kasich for a hug. The Ohio governor stepped forward and threw his arms around him.

    I contrast Kasich to Trump not because I think the willingness to hug is the measure of a great president, but because empathy is. The cliche about feeling someone else’s pain cannot be applied to Trump. He does not appreciate the difference between fortunate and entitled. The only pain he feels is his own. He never apologized to Kovaleski and he never seemed to appreciate why he should. You may conclude that he’s merely rude. I think he’s dangerous.

    Republican presidential debate: 6 takeaways
    Eric Bradner
    By Eric Bradner, CNN
    Updated 1:36 PM ET, Fri February 26, 2016 | Video Source: CNN

    (CNN)Donald Trump is leading the race, but Marco Rubio owned the stage -- finally turning against Trump in a late effort to block the real estate mogul from running away with the Republican nomination.

    Rubio attacked Trump's character. And Ted Cruz followed up by questioning Trump's conservative credentials.

    Trump does many silly things, but is prepared to stand for the silent majority in a world where political correctness has gone too far. The soft countries are being trampled by a wave of barbarism unfotunately. If there could be one world leader, Putin would be my choice though.
    If it's not true, don't say it. If it's not yours, don't take it. If it's not right, don't do it.

    Trump Fails To Condemn KKK On Television, Turns To Twitter To Clarify

    On the Sunday morning talk shows, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump refused to condemn endorsements from a prominent white supremacist and former KKK leader, and said he retweeted a Mussolini quote because "it's a very good quote."

    The extended conversation about white supremacists came on CNN's State of the Union, where Jake Tapper asked if Trump would distance himself from an endorsement by David Duke, former grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Duke has told his radio audience that voting against Trump would be "treason to your heritage."

    Trump refused to condemn that endorsement or say he didn't want the support of white supremacists — four times.

    Donald Trump, the Great Betrayer

    Now, at long last, the big guns are being brought to bear. Now, at long last, some major Republicans like Mitt Romney are speaking up to lay waste to Donald Trump.

    For months Trump’s rivals and other Republicans have either retreated in silence or tentatively and ineptly criticized him for exactly those traits that voters like about him: for being a slapdash, politically incorrect money-hungry bully.

    But now finally — at long last — major Republicans are raising their heads and highlighting Trump’s actual vulnerability: his inability to think for an extended time about anybody but himself.
