Handle with Care

After the high profile handshake with Donald Trump a few months ago, everybody figured the Romney campaign would wash their hands of this 80s era clown. So why the high profile fundraiser with him as host tonight? And just as Trump is doubling down on his claims that President Obama is a Kenyan immigrant?I was just chatting about this with one of our editors.

My best guess is that they didn’t figure Trump would continue to be so nuts when they scheduled the mega-blowout fundraiser. And now that they’re here, they’re just figuring, whatever, let’s just get through tonight and it’ll be behind us.

The alternative is some high profile rebuke of Trump which is probably too frightening a prospect for the campaign.
