Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I gave up trying to make any sense of the GOP side of things back in late March when it became clear Trump was going to be their nominee.  

I don't see how he or the RNC or the NRSC or the NRCC are going to be able to appeal to the usual Much Bucks to fund their national, state, and local campaigns.  

Not only is his campaign broke, Trump himself is simply not ready for Prime Time:

Manafort [Trump's senior advisor] has previously promised that Trump will stop making such a jackass out of himself and start acting more presidential, but at the same time, it is his carnival barker antics combined with his bigoted rhetoric that is kept the eye of the media on him. If he plans to depend on free media coverage for the next two months the only way he can feasibly do that is by continuing to make an embarrassing spectacle of himself.

If Trump doesn't buy paid advertising after CA until the Republican National Convention he will have to stay on the tube every day just to keep from becoming a broken pinnata.

Fortunately for him, the MSM are fully cooperating with his publicity campaign.
