Trump figures he hit a home run. As Donald would put it... he touched the “Middle East”, and “The Jews”, and is now rounding third towards home (where he can be tagged out). David Waldman calls the play by play.
Greg Dworkin gives us a preview of all that’s waiting for Trump. The Gop is looking at nine months of failure, meanwhile the Democratic party is busy metamorphosing—while still remembering what they stand for—flipping Republican seats.
Mitch McConnell remembers what Dems stand for, and isn’t interested. Almost everybody, including some Republicans, are becoming less interested in what Mitch stands for—which is destroying the lives of poor Republicans.
Ivanka doesn’t moderate Trump; she sells him to moderates. Melania and Ivanka wore veils to meet the Pope, but not headscarves in Saudi Arabia. Their base (Conservative Russians) probably appreciates this. Anyhow, Melania can’t let Donald get any ideas when she is forced to hang around with him. The Pope wishes he could dress more defensively.
If it’s Wednesday, it’s Joan McCarter day! This Wednesday is also CBO day. Joan tells us what to look for in the upcoming CBO score. It is now President Mulvaney destroying the U.S., which isn’t to say that Trump is not a liar that hates his own voters, because he is. The Gop is full of lying haters, those like Mitch McConnell just don’t broadcast that. Paul Ryan blames a $2,000,000,000,000 math error on his budget. The media completely misses how Social Security is being cut. Trump sabotage is the “single most destabilizing factor in the individual market”. Was John Boehner the hero that talked Donald Trump out of shutting down the government?
