Despite the protestations of his party, his campaign, and his family, Donald Trump still refuses to state outright that he will unconditionally accept the results of the election. Could he be too isolated for this stance to be dangerous?

.

Its true that Trump has virtually no allies at the top of the GOP when it comes to his new crusade to delegitimize the results of a presidential election. When Charles Krauthammer, a conservative pundit who gave Trump more rope to hang himself than many, calls his stand political suicide, and when a proven right-wing nutcase like Maines governor Paul LePage tells Trump to get over yourself, you know youre out on the fringe.

.

Before the debate, after all, Trump was all but inviting those Second Amendment people hed previously encouraged to take aim at Clinton to take their guns to polling places in cities with major black populations to intimidate minority voters. The Times reports that few are heeding his call. But it only takes a few to turn Election Day very dark indeed. This is what we should be worrying about rather than another empty threat by Trump to file a lawsuit if he doesnt like the election results.

.

What the Republicans who are separating themselves from Trump this week dont seem to realize is that they are too late way too late to hop off Trumps kamikaze mission unscathed. Instead of releasing press statements taking issue with Trumps latest ravings and Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell havent even done that, by the way they might start making some amends by mobilizing behind a proactive plan to keep the Trump mobs from interfering with voters on Election Day. But given the larger GOPs record of trying to suppress minority voters with unconstitutional state laws and lying a project that long precedes Trumps ascent they are unlikely to do so. And they will own whatever happens on Election Day.

.

The standard narrative of the past few weeks blames Trumps fortunes on his own missteps, but after the last debate some pundits are coming around to the idea that Hillary Clinton set a series of very effective traps. Should she get more credit?

.

Without question, Clinton set a brilliant trap near the end of the first debate: her telling of the story of Alicia Machado, the former Miss Universe who was a twofer as a victim of Trump bigotry  hed disparaged her both as a woman and as a Hispanic. His campaign has never been the same since. The airing of this incident set him off on a Twitter bender and set the stage for an outpouring of sexual-assault allegations (some of which were seemingly confirmed by Trump himself, with Billy Bush as prompter). Whats also been impressive about Clintons debate performances was her sheer professionalism as a debater: She was usually poised, retained her sense of humor, and steadfastly avoided getting down in the muck with Trump under very trying circumstances. Best of all, she executed superb psychological warfare, irritating him with her continued use of Donald, confronting him with precise regurgitations of some of his most embarrassing quotes, and maintaining her self-control so that he could hang himself with his constant interruptions, his bizarre stage perambulations in the town-hall debate, and a repertoire of inane or blustery facial expressions that made you wonder if he was channeling Alec Baldwin rather than the other way around.

.

He was so amateurish that you have to ask again: Why did so many conservatives go into primary season convinced that the field of Trump opponents was so talented? That field of 16 was up against a guy who did no preparation, knows no facts, runs out of attention span and stamina like clockwork after 15 minutes on stage, and in general behaves like a child with ADHD who has no parent at home to make sure he takes his medication.
