Donald Trump has so far not surrendered to the demands of self-appointed ruling class Washington Establishment and media. Americans rarely see this happen:
7/21/15, "The Drive-Bys Missed My Point on Trump," Rush Limbaugh transcript
"My point yesterday was not to come to Trump's defense. My point yesterday was to illustrate a teachable moment

wisdom in circumstances like this goes this way: You have a Republican

Democrat) says is something so bad, so beyond the pale that the entire
media establishment and the Washington establishment immediately demand
that the perp apologize.
And usually the perp does.

says (sobbing), 'That wasn't me! I don't know who that was, but that's
not what I really think. I really didn't mean it,' and
and they slink away,
never to be heard from again."
And the key
point... This was not talked about all night and even today on CNN. The

Washington establishment echoes national outrage."...
