— Washington Post Columnist Dana Milbank has made good on his promise to eat his words.

Seven months ago, Milbank said he would eat one of his columns if Donald Trump became the Republican presidential nominee.

On Thursday, Milbank swallowed his pride and some newsprint.

He ate a nine-course meal laced with paper from the Oct. 4 edition of the Post and prepared by one of Washington's top chefs.

Milbank did wash down the food with some of Trump's wine.

    WIN.

    That is the beauty of this. Those zany tea people were all outraged or whatever several years ago and voted in some of the kooks we have in office now. But of course, many of them could not deliver on all of their outlandish campaign trail promises so they were slapped with the "RINO" label and challenged by even kookier candidates.

    SO, what will happen if Donald is elected president this Fall? Sorry, but no way he can or will deliver on even a fraction of what he is saying ("They will because I will tell them to." "They will pay for it because I will make them." Etc. etc.).

    So what will happen to all of the outrage then? Where will it go? Really this is a win-win for the saner people of this country. Hillary wins and cooler heads will prevail. Donald wins and we get entertained to the GOP eating its own... even more than ever.

    I'd like to see Donald eat a wall that he promised but won't ever deliver on.

    That's what the Washington Times is for (D.C.'s other impartial newspaper)

    The same Washington Post that just hired 20 "reporters" to dig into every aspect of Trump's life for dirt? Really. How many at the Post are digging Hillary's dirt? Or Bernies? No.... the Post would not do that.
