One sunny day Donald was playing with his wonderful trucks, and having a great and very beautiful time, believe me. Then, all at once everyone was talking about how his wonderful, very wonderful Trumpcare bill was just too great, and beautiful! Donald decided it was not his Trumpcare bill anymore, and he would make it die... “Cheer up Donald!”, pleaded his friends in the Gop. Eat some treats, and we’ll dream of future good times! “We might not be allowed to kill things today, but we can still hurt them—a lot!” Mitch, the evil turtle said...

So, it wasn’t a fairytale ending, David Waldman and Joan McCarter remind us. We can recognize the victory, but will need to keep fighting. Mitch McConnell has run out of excuses for not accomplishing anything. Did Republicans underestimate the difficulty of TreasonCare, or overestimate the abilities of McConnell? Either way, they will try, try again.

Back to the rot at the top. Jared Kushner will of course keep his security clearance, of course Trump colluded with the Russians to defeat all opposition, including Republican, and of course Trump talked more with Putin than he told you about. Did you know Donald’s wife is great and very beautiful?
