Shikha Dalmia has an article in Reason on how the Republicans have largely abandoned their supposed principles in deference to Donald Trump. That's not to say that there are no individual exceptions, but Republican Congressmen and other leaders have, for the most part, not spoken out to say, "I still believe in free trade, fiscal responsibility, refusing to truckle to Vladimir Putin, and the other principles I believed in two years ago. I will oppose bad measures from a supposedly Republican president, just as I would oppose them from a Democrat."

As our would-be caudillo might put it in ending a Twitter pronouncement: sad.
