From The Briefing: Trump’s no good, horrible, very bad week - The Movie!

Donald Trump really did have quite a week. The Briefing compiled it all for you in case you blinked and missed any of it.

Here is the transcript.
Things Donald Trump did this week:
  • refused to endorse Speaker Ryan.
  • refused to endorse Senator McCain.
  • said that handling sexual harassment has to be “up to the individual.”
  • picked a fight with a literal baby.
  • attacked Republican Senator Kelly Ayotte.
  • responded to his drop in the polls by claiming the election might be rigged.
  • advised Americans to pull their 401(k)s out of the stock market.
  • attacked the family of a fallen soldier.
  • then doubled down on it.
  • then tripled down on it.
  • and even Chris Christie rebuked him for it.
  • called Hillary Clinton “the devil.”
  • assured George Stephanopoulos that Putin would not invade Crimea when Putin invaded Crimea two years ago.
  • saw his former campaign manager once again question whether or not Barack Obama was born in the United States.
  • caused a Republican congressman to endorse Hillary Clinton.
  • literally just made up a video of money being dropped off in Tehran.
  • was given a veteran’s Purple Heart medal, at which point he said he “always wanted to get the Purple Heart” but conceded that “this was much easier.”
  • claimed in a Washington Post interview that he had a strategy to win secret states.
  • learned that his old casino, the Trump Taj Mahal, would be closing within a month.
  • was described by a former acting CIA director as “an unwitting agent of the Russian Federation.”
  • capitulated under pressure from GOP leadership and announced that he was endorsing Speaker Ryan.
That's some resumé!  Fortunately for all of us, Hillary is waiting in the wings.
