RACHEL MADDOW (HOST): Here comes another big wave of hate in a different direction that is due to crust and break tomorrow morning. The New York Times' Jonathan Martin reports tonight that tomorrow morning a group of what he calls "conservative intellectuals" are going to issue an anti-Donald Trump manifesto. This is an effort led by the conservative magazine The National Review. The anti-Trump manifesto that's due out tomorrow morning reportedly plans to argue that Mr. Trump "poses the most serious peril to the conservative movement since the 1950s-era John Birch Society." That's the characterization by Jonathan Martin tonight in The New York Times. The Times did get one quote specifically from the National Review which I think is supposed to be emblematic of what they're going to argue against him in this manifesto tomorrow: "Donald Trump is a menace ... Donald Trump is a menace to American conservatism who would take the work of generations and would trample it underfoot on behalf of a populism as heedless and crude as the Donald himself." So that's fun.
