The rest is typical politics and of course the other nominees are going to run adverts against Trump. If Trump can't handle then he doesn't deserve to be nominated.

So as I said earlier, I support your right to believe everything except what the eyes tell you. Top Tip: Next time you google up a link, you probably ought to read it first.
As mentioned, the RNC is NOT the "Republican establishment". The RNC is simply the party mechanism. You don't seem to understand how the GOP works.
From YOUR post: Priebus can't control who supports or opposes individual candidates. ,

So, if supporters of Trump are racist, then these guys must be too, right?

From the New York Times:


These people should have their tax exempt status revoked.

So, if this story is wrong, then the New York Times will have once again dropped trou for all the world to see. I guess we will find out on Monday.
Not really, the article says according to the Trump campaign, so it would be the campaign that would look foolish not the NY Times.

As individuals expressing their own personal opinions separate and apart from their churches, they have no tax exemption to revoke.

However, if they were to endorse candidates during the course of their churches activities, then you would be right and I would agree.

As far as being naive, insult isn't argument. It only means you lack logic or fact make counterpoint.

Then please tell us specifically, who in the Republican Establishment, is going to target Trump. If you can't do this, then you are simply making a generalization that you can't prove.

Meanwhile, this proves both of you wrong. This is the GOP Establishment, and they are staying out of it.

Looks like the NY Times reporter fell into the trap of believing someone in Trump's campaign. Should have fact checked better. It has already been proven Trump spreads disinformation.

The only people who listen to MSM anymore are the few that still cling to status quo career politicians.
