NEW YORK Maybe winning doesn't take care of everything. Nike is causing a social media storm with its latest online ad showing a picture of Tiger Woods overlaid with a quote from him, "Winning takes care of everything." The ad, posted on Facebook and Twitter, is supposed to allude to the fact that the golfer recovered from career stumbles to regain his world No. 1 ranking on Monday, which he lost in October 2010. But some say it's inappropriate in light of Woods' past marital woes.

Story Continued Below --A top Republican insider laments that even with conservative calculations, he now projects Trump will cross the magic number of 1,237 delegates to win on the first ballot at the Cleveland convention: “The dominoes are falling, and you can’t stop them. ...

Driving the Day BULLETIN at 3:41 a.m. -- “MOSCOW (AP) - Russia announces that Russian and Syrian warplanes are halting airstrikes on the besieged Syrian city of Aleppo.” GOOD TUESDAY MORNING. Most Republicans on Capitol Hill have already settled on Donald Trump losing in a few weeks. Jake and Rachael Bade reported last night that the House Republican super PAC is building a firewall by spending millions on safe Republicans seats, to ensure a wave doesn’t deliver the House to Democrats. http://politi.co/2do5RtE Story Continued Below **SUBSCRIBE to Playbook: http://politi.co/1M75UbX PAUL RYAN, though, is quickly becoming the fall guy for Donald Trump -- and Republicans, more broadly. Ryan is basically ignoring Trump, and going about his own business on the House campaign trail.
