Amazing -- well, not really.
A reader at TPM went to the GOP official website and noticed that the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald J. Trump, is missing from their webpage!
No photo of him there!
But plenty of mentions and even photos of Hillary.
Trump's own party is avoiding him like poison.
Here's Josh Marshall writing about this:
"If you go to the Republican National Committee website, there is a crowded homepage with no mention of Donald Trump. I’ve been watching it for a few days. They recently had a petition asking people to sign if they want to “Take Back The White House.”
Even in the body of that petition, there was no mention of Trump. Judging from their website, the RNC is acting as if Clinton is running unopposed.
This is particularly amazing because the Trump campaign, or rather “campaign” is relying on the RNC to do the things campaigns usually do themselves, to essentially be their campaign structure.
The fact that the Republican leadership, or rather “leadership,” is supporting Trump has gotten a lot of attention; the funny part is that they think they can also pretend it isn’t happening."
