Agreed.
Team Trump figured that out over 10 months ago. After individuals pointed it out, they either chose to leave or were asked to leave. To put it more metaphorically, all the mice might agree that putting a bell around the cat's neck would help everyone. But no mouse wants to volunteer for that job.

In short, if he irrationally and publicly attacks Republicans who have influence and who can help his campaign, imagine how irrationally he must attack campaign workers behind the scenes.
