DANIELS: “That’s what I see when I look at Trump’s rallies, that's what I see, the lies spewing at these people, and people going, I got to believe in something, he said he’d bring my manufacturing job back, she didn’t, and I’m all in. But at the end of the day, aside from yeah, I don’t want to pay taxes, it’s race. It’s race. This is about — this is about the Republican Party — or a wing of it going, this is our last chance to save the Party. And if we don’t, it’s the end of the Republican Party. The only way they can do that was to tap the race button and say go ahead, it’s okay. And he did, and they did. That was the only card they had left to play and they played it and they aren’t going to go quietly. That’s why you look at the cowardice of the 15 or so Republicans in the Senate who are still quiet. I’m not talking about Bob Corker and Jeff Flake, and — who's the other one that went out the back door?
