CHRIS MATTHEWS (HOST): Did he fix his problem? 

MIKE MURPLY: Not at all. You can put Trump on a prompter for thirty minutes with a mediocre speech. But that doesn’t wipe the indelible stain of racism off him. He has to address what he did, he has to fix it. And the idea -- the fundamental flaw of Trump is he's a bad candidate. The minute you let him off prompter, he'll hurt himself. 


MATTHEWS: Mike, is this going to be like this from now til November? 

MURPHY: Yeah I'm afraid it is. Its depressing, but Trump will keep digging in, Hillary is going to unite most of the  Democratic Party if not all of it. That will grow a lead in the public polls. Trump will react to that, he’ll turn up the volume, he'll dig himself in a hole. He'll make more problems like did he with the judge. Trump is who Trump is. One prompter can't fix that. And then I think Republicans will start dropping off him. We're in for a very long bumpy campaign with this guy.
