The Republican National Committee has lined up a roster of surrogates to appear on conservative news stations nationwide to defend Trump. But a list the RNC distributed on Tuesday could hardly be described as star-studded: The names include Bob Paduchik, an RNC co-chair who worked on Trump’s Ohio campaign; Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi (R); and Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge (R).Oof. The Arkansas AG not star-studded? The Post must have missed some of Rutledge's star turns on cable TV. On another occasion, her defense of the Trump firing of Comey was characterized as "dumber than a box of hammers." In fairness: It is hard to defend the indefensible, even if you have high intellect, sharp debating skills and a lengthy record of accomplished legal advocacy.
