Good morning! Here’s what’s going on in the Trump campaign, as explained by a few select tweets:
A woman was booed by a crowd of Republicans for asking Mike Pence why he hasn’t stood up to Trump for disrespecting the Khans.
The boos here are something else https://t.co/vPc1ts7r8l— Christopher Hayes (@chrislhayes) August 1, 2016
Trump’s former campaign manager is demanding that President Obama release his Harvard transcripts for some reason:
At what point does media have an obligation to not put craziness on tv? (see Trump spox blaming O for Khan death) https://t.co/gjmNak5nAF— Soledad O'Brien (@soledadobrien) August 3, 2016
The doofus who runs the RNC is not happy about Trump’s refusal to endorse Paul Ryan:
Top republican: @Reince is 'apoplectic' over Trump's refusal to back Ryan. He called several Trump staffers to express his displeasure.— Katy Tur (@KatyTurNBC) August 3, 2016
The opponents of both John McCain and Paul Ryan are trying to take advantage of Trump’s non-endorsements. They both have upcoming primary elections.

The GOP may defect, en masse.
More from same source: The next 24 to 72 hours are crucial. There is serious talk about key Republicans coming out hard against Trump.— Katy Tur (@KatyTurNBC) August 3, 2016
Several Republicans have already defected, the most high profile of which was Meg Whitman.

The Trump staff is suicidal.
longtime ally of Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign manager: "Manafort not challenging Trump anymore. Mailing it in. Staff suicidal."— John Harwood (@JohnJHarwood) August 3, 2016
A Trump campaign source, in reax to this, tells me "it's all true" and "way worse than people realize." https://t.co/nvioNcjMCJ— Ali Vitali (@alivitali) August 3, 2016
Trump’s denial is half-assed.
There is great unity in my campaign, perhaps greater than ever before. I want to thank everyone for your tremendous support. Beat Crooked H!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 3, 2016
There is more speculation than ever that Trump may drop out before November.
Trump won't drop out, and if he does, he will do so in the most destructive way possible. https://t.co/GLnN5teLxN— Jeff Fecke (@jkfecke) August 3, 2016
