What a MESS! One minute the demagogue’s rabble-rousing has me tearing out my hair in despair, but the next … I wonder long he can last. With a rising chorus questioning his indefensible charges against Obama, the courts against him on the travel ban, and everybody against him on Trumpcare— excuse me, Ryancare— he’s not WINNING.
How many more blows to his fragile ego can he take before he admits the presidency isn’t at all what he thought it would be? Not nearly so much fun, not a simple negotiation, not unquestioning adulation, but unanticipated opposition lined up against him. And not just from the Dems, but even from faithless Republicans as the scales slowly drop from their eyes.
Will he toss in his chips and go home? He and his family have, in this short time, already profited handsomely, even though they will never be satisfied. Still, he’s not used to being stymied so consistently, especially on the fanciful ideas that got him elected.
I’m probably guilty of magical thinking, but I don’t see how he can see it through for four years.
