did the RNC vet Trump at all?

Obviously in general they are incompetent and horrible, but I'm just wondering if they did basic things like make sure he had paid his taxes, wasn't in legal trouble or have weird alliances with foreign leaders?

By all indications, they did none of that.

1. Since a person doesn't have to ask permission of the party

 

that's not a very meaningful question.

16. The approval process is the primary process.

 

Anyone can declare he or she wants to run. Other than fulfilling the Constitutional requirement of citizenship, age, and length or residence in the country, there's nothing else a person needs to do. Other than run and win enough primaries and caucuses.

So how in the world was the Donald supposed to have been "vetted"? How would the Republicans have stopped him from running?

Similarly, there were many who thought Hillary should sail through the primary season completely unchallenged, and a lot of people were very unhappy when that didn't happen. Well, once again there's no a priori requirements to run.

2. I'm beginning to think the extent of his 'vetting'

consisted of a shot for distemper. Clearly, it didn't take.

13. No, but you better bet

that those closest to him are current on their rabies shots. If you ever see tRump carrying a sheet of paper to the podium, don't be tricked into believing it's notes for a speech; it's a list of people he's gonna bite.

3. Maybe they found lots of other problems with all the candidates

and decided not to vet.

11. Real question is whether anyone vetted Manafort and his "assistants"

who were brought in at the 11th hour to displace Corey.

How was Manafort chosen? Hmmm.

15. good point

 

there's some real weird politics here that make the DWS-DNC stuff seem like child's play.

14. Vetting is what you do with applicants and supplicants.

They don't dare make demands of Trump.

He vetted them, in his fourth-grade way, and found them wanting.

The nomination.
