To put it mildly, the Republican Party is explosively crapping its cage about Donald Trump’s prospects for being re-nominated in 2020.

Trump Keeps Whining About Obstructionism But The Republican Party Invented It

There was a time when the Republican Party fancied itself the party of personal responsibility.
