Trump: Flying Or Falling?

Message candidates tend to fade, as Trump appears to be doing now. Michael Ramirez suggests that SuperTrump is now falling rather than flying. Click to enlarge:

It is interesting to wonder how the GOP race might have been different if the television networks hadn’t devoted more coverage to Trump than to all of the other candidates combined.
