    Trump's Treason - Even The Seditious NRA Pedophiles Abandoning Ship

    These are dark times in Trumpworld. Politico reports that President Trump
    ďis using his relatively light schedule to watch TV and fume about the
    latest scandal,Ē which makes him sound very relatable but also very sad.
    The New York Times, meanwhile, offers a portrait of a White House crippled
    by infighting and completely unable to keep its story straight in the wake
    of new revelations about Donald Trump Jr.ís apparent eagerness to cooperateósome would say colludeówith the Russian government to give his fatherís presidential campaign a boost.

    our editors and voiced by professional narrators.

    I have no insight into what the Trump clan will do to contain the damage
    in the days to come. What Iím more interested in is how Republicans in
    Congress might react to the ongoing Trump meltdown. Will they abandon the president en masse? Will they stick with him until the bitter end? Iíd
    divvy GOP lawmakers up into three main categories: those who see
    themselves as potential Trump successors; swing staters who fear for their political survival; and the GOP leadership in the House and Senate, who
    care first and foremost about passing legislation.
    ADVERTISING

    A short while ago, I argued that ambitious Republicans should start laying
    the groundwork for a 2020 campaign right now. The obvious counterargument
    is that even contemplating a primary challenge against Trump is
    hilariously premature, as he continues to enjoy the support of the vast majority of Republican voters. Thatís certainly true, and it remains a
    decent reason to hang back.

    As the events of the past few days remind us, however, itís not clear the president is all that deft when it comes to handling a bona fide political crisis, and tying yourself too closely to Trumpís political fortunes is
    looking less and less like a safe bet. And besides, could anyone blame a politician for setting himself or herself up as a Plan B for Republicans
    in the event of presidential self-immolation? The challenge is that if
    youíre going to run for the GOP presidential nomination, youíll need to
    win over people who at one point or another supported Trump. That means
    there might be such a thing as being too eager to abandon the president outright. The decision to throw Trump under the bus will have to be made
    more in sorrow than in anger.

    The deeper problem for those pushing the GOP agenda is that itís not all
    that popular, Trump or no Trump.

    Consider the tack taken by Ben Sasse, the youthful senator from Nebraska,
    whoís already being asked about his presidential ambitions, and who is
    already artfully dodging questions about his intentions. On one level,
    Sasse has been quite quick to condemn Trump, rapping him across the
    knuckles for intemperate tweets and cozying up to Vladimir Putin, and
    going so far as to describe the presidentís attacks on the hosts of
    MSNBCís Morning Joe as ďbeneath the dignity of your office.Ē But heís not sticking his neck out by, say, calling for impeachment.

    How might Sasse and others in the same boat, such as Florida Sen. Marco
    Rubio, start ramping up their criticism? Raising questions about the
    propriety of keeping Jared Kushner as a senior adviser to the president
    might be a good place to start. Sticking up for Robert Mueller in his role
    as special counsel is a no-brainer. And if Trump and his allies canít
    right the ship in a week or two, and if the president starts bleeding GOP support? Thatís when the gloves can come off.

    Now, say youíre a backbencher who cares about nothing more than getting re-elected. Has the time come to distance yourself from the president? If
    your seat is even remotely competitive, the answer is clearly yes. There
    is a reason why Rep. Lee Zeldin, a Republican representing a swing
    district in New Yorkís Long Island, felt the need to scold Donald Trump
    Jr. in a tweet. To have any hope of winning re-election, Zeldin knew he
    had to demonstrate some modicum of independence. This is part of a larger pattern: Many of Trumpís most frequent GOP critics, among them Arizona
    Sen. Jeff Flake and Nevada Sen. Dean Heller, are up for re-election in
    2018 in states where Democrats are gaining ground. Mind you, many anti-
    Trump Republicans in Congress are as motivated by ideological or character-based objections to Trump as they are by political calculation.
    But donít be surprised if Republicans representing purple and blue states
    are the ones who are keenest to take Trump to task.

    Then there are the Republicans, led by House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who are primarily focused on passing legislation that will move the country in what they take to be a more conservative direction. The goal of pushing through the GOPís long-
    standing domestic policy priorities has given Republicans reason to put
    aside any concerns they might have had about Trump.

    By now, however, itís become clear that an understaffed and inexperienced
    Trump White House is incapable of knocking heads together and moving the
    GOP agenda forward. To the contrary, mixed messages from the president
    (one day the GOPís Obamacare overhaul is terrific, the next day itís inexcusably mean) and the constant whiff of scandal have stopped the GOP
    agenda dead in its tracks. A cynic might say that Trumpís incompetence
    could be a blessing in disguise, as passing unpopular legislation could
    bite Republicans in the behind come 2018. But thatís small comfort to GOP lawmakers who care most of all about having legislative accomplishments to
    crow about.

    Will these Republicans leave Trump twisting in the wind? Iím not so sure.
    The deeper problem facing those who care about pushing through the GOP
    agenda is that itís not all that popular, Trump or no Trump. A weak Trump
    has at least some reason to play ball with a GOP Congress. He doesnít have
    much of a substantive agenda of his own, and heís in no position to cut
    deals with Democrats. If Trump is ensnared in ever more investigations, or
    if he is somehow removed from office, the Ryan-McConnell agenda may well
    be doomed. That means Ryan and McConnell will likely prefer the devil they know, at least for now.

    could be a blessing in disguise, as passing unpopular legislation could
    bite Republicans in the behind come 2018. But thatís small comfort to GOP lawmakers who care most of all about having legislative accomplishments to
    crow about.

    Will these Republicans leave Trump twisting in the wind? Iím not so sure.
    The deeper problem facing those who care about pushing through the GOP
    agenda is that itís not all that popular, Trump or no Trump. A weak Trump
    has at least some reason to play ball with a GOP Congress. He doesnít have
    much of a substantive agenda of his own, and heís in no position to cut
    deals with Democrats. If Trump is ensnared in ever more investigations, or
    if he is somehow removed from office, the Ryan-McConnell agenda may well
    be doomed. That means Ryan and McConnell will likely prefer the devil they know, at least for now.

    Trump's Treason - Even The Seditious NRA Pedophiles Abandoning Ship

    These are dark times in Trumpworld. Politico reports that President Trump
    ďis using his relatively light schedule to watch TV and fume about the
    latest scandal,Ē which makes him sound very relatable but also very sad.
    The New York Times, meanwhile, offers a portrait of a White House crippled
    by infighting and completely unable to keep its story straight in the wake
    of new revelations about Donald Trump Jr.ís apparent eagerness to cooperateósome would say colludeówith the Russian government to give his fatherís presidential campaign a boost.

    I have no insight into what the Trump clan will do to contain the damage
    in the days to come. What Iím more interested in is how Republicans in
    Congress might react to the ongoing Trump meltdown. Will they abandon the president en masse? Will they stick with him until the bitter end? Iíd
    divvy GOP lawmakers up into three main categories: those who see
    themselves as potential Trump successors; swing staters who fear for their political survival; and the GOP leadership in the House and Senate, who
    care first and foremost about passing legislation.
    ADVERTISING

    A short while ago, I argued that ambitious Republicans should start laying
    the groundwork for a 2020 campaign right now. The obvious counterargument
    is that even contemplating a primary challenge against Trump is
    hilariously premature, as he continues to enjoy the support of the vast majority of Republican voters. Thatís certainly true, and it remains a
    decent reason to hang back.

    As the events of the past few days remind us, however, itís not clear the president is all that deft when it comes to handling a bona fide political crisis, and tying yourself too closely to Trumpís political fortunes is
    looking less and less like a safe bet. And besides, could anyone blame a politician for setting himself or herself up as a Plan B for Republicans
    in the event of presidential self-immolation? The challenge is that if
    youíre going to run for the GOP presidential nomination, youíll need to
    win over people who at one point or another supported Trump. That means
    there might be such a thing as being too eager to abandon the president outright. The decision to throw Trump under the bus will have to be made
    more in sorrow than in anger.

    The deeper problem for those pushing the GOP agenda is that itís not all
    that popular, Trump or no Trump.

    Consider the tack taken by Ben Sasse, the youthful senator from Nebraska,
    whoís already being asked about his presidential ambitions, and who is
    already artfully dodging questions about his intentions. On one level,
    Sasse has been quite quick to condemn Trump, rapping him across the
    knuckles for intemperate tweets and cozying up to Vladimir Putin, and
    going so far as to describe the presidentís attacks on the hosts of
    MSNBCís Morning Joe as ďbeneath the dignity of your office.Ē But heís not sticking his neck out by, say, calling for impeachment.

    How might Sasse and others in the same boat, such as Florida Sen. Marco
    Rubio, start ramping up their criticism? Raising questions about the
    propriety of keeping Jared Kushner as a senior adviser to the president
    might be a good place to start. Sticking up for Robert Mueller in his role
    as special counsel is a no-brainer. And if Trump and his allies canít
    right the ship in a week or two, and if the president starts bleeding GOP support? Thatís when the gloves can come off.

    Now, say youíre a backbencher who cares about nothing more than getting re-elected. Has the time come to distance yourself from the president? If
    your seat is even remotely competitive, the answer is clearly yes. There
    is a reason why Rep. Lee Zeldin, a Republican representing a swing
    district in New Yorkís Long Island, felt the need to scold Donald Trump
    Jr. in a tweet. To have any hope of winning re-election, Zeldin knew he
    had to demonstrate some modicum of independence. This is part of a larger pattern: Many of Trumpís most frequent GOP critics, among them Arizona
    Sen. Jeff Flake and Nevada Sen. Dean Heller, are up for re-election in
    2018 in states where Democrats are gaining ground. Mind you, many anti-
    Trump Republicans in Congress are as motivated by ideological or character-based objections to Trump as they are by political calculation.
    But donít be surprised if Republicans representing purple and blue states
    are the ones who are keenest to take Trump to task.

    Then there are the Republicans, led by House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who are primarily focused on passing legislation that will move the country in what they take to be a more conservative direction. The goal of pushing through the GOPís long-
    standing domestic policy priorities has given Republicans reason to put
    aside any concerns they might have had about Trump.

    By now, however, itís become clear that an understaffed and inexperienced
    Trump White House is incapable of knocking heads together and moving the
    GOP agenda forward. To the contrary, mixed messages from the president
    (one day the GOPís Obamacare overhaul is terrific, the next day itís inexcusably mean) and the constant whiff of scandal have stopped the GOP
    agenda dead in its tracks. A cynic might say that Trumpís incompetence
    could be a blessing in disguise, as passing unpopular legislation could

    bite Republicans in the behind come 2018. But thatís small comfort to GOP lawmakers who care most of all about having legislative accomplishments to
    crow about.

    Will these Republicans leave Trump twisting in the wind? Iím not so sure.
    The deeper problem facing those who care about pushing through the GOP
    agenda is that itís not all that popular, Trump or no Trump. A weak Trump
    has at least some reason to play ball with a GOP Congress. He doesnít have
    much of a substantive agenda of his own, and heís in no position to cut
    deals with Democrats. If Trump is ensnared in ever more investigations, or
    if he is somehow removed from office, the Ryan-McConnell agenda may well
    be doomed. That means Ryan and McConnell will likely prefer the devil they know, at least for now.

    Trump's Treason - Even The Seditious NRA Pedophiles Abandoning Ship

    These are dark times in Trumpworld. Politico reports that President Trump
    ďis using his relatively light schedule to watch TV and fume about the
    latest scandal,Ē which makes him sound very relatable but also very sad.
    The New York Times, meanwhile, offers a portrait of a White House crippled
    by infighting and completely unable to keep its story straight in the wake
    of new revelations about Donald Trump Jr.ís apparent eagerness to cooperateósome would say colludeówith the Russian government to give his fatherís presidential campaign a boost.

    I have no insight into what the Trump clan will do to contain the damage
    in the days to come. What Iím more interested in is how Republicans in
    Congress might react to the ongoing Trump meltdown. Will they abandon the president en masse? Will they stick with him until the bitter end? Iíd
    divvy GOP lawmakers up into three main categories: those who see
    themselves as potential Trump successors; swing staters who fear for their political survival; and the GOP leadership in the House and Senate, who
    care first and foremost about passing legislation.
    ADVERTISING

    A short while ago, I argued that ambitious Republicans should start laying
    the groundwork for a 2020 campaign right now. The obvious counterargument
    is that even contemplating a primary challenge against Trump is
    hilariously premature, as he continues to enjoy the support of the vast majority of Republican voters. Thatís certainly true, and it remains a
    decent reason to hang back.

    As the events of the past few days remind us, however, itís not clear the president is all that deft when it comes to handling a bona fide political crisis, and tying yourself too closely to Trumpís political fortunes is
    looking less and less like a safe bet. And besides, could anyone blame a politician for setting himself or herself up as a Plan B for Republicans
    in the event of presidential self-immolation? The challenge is that if
    youíre going to run for the GOP presidential nomination, youíll need to
    win over people who at one point or another supported Trump. That means
    there might be such a thing as being too eager to abandon the president outright. The decision to throw Trump under the bus will have to be made
    more in sorrow than in anger.

    The deeper problem for those pushing the GOP agenda is that itís not all
    that popular, Trump or no Trump.

    Consider the tack taken by Ben Sasse, the youthful senator from Nebraska,
    whoís already being asked about his presidential ambitions, and who is
    already artfully dodging questions about his intentions. On one level,
    Sasse has been quite quick to condemn Trump, rapping him across the
    knuckles for intemperate tweets and cozying up to Vladimir Putin, and
    going so far as to describe the presidentís attacks on the hosts of
    MSNBCís Morning Joe as ďbeneath the dignity of your office.Ē But heís not sticking his neck out by, say, calling for impeachment.

    How might Sasse and others in the same boat, such as Florida Sen. Marco
    Rubio, start ramping up their criticism? Raising questions about the
    propriety of keeping Jared Kushner as a senior adviser to the president
    might be a good place to start. Sticking up for Robert Mueller in his role
    as special counsel is a no-brainer. And if Trump and his allies canít
    right the ship in a week or two, and if the president starts bleeding GOP support? Thatís when the gloves can come off.

    Now, say youíre a backbencher who cares about nothing more than getting re-elected. Has the time come to distance yourself from the president? If
    your seat is even remotely competitive, the answer is clearly yes. There
    is a reason why Rep. Lee Zeldin, a Republican representing a swing
    district in New Yorkís Long Island, felt the need to scold Donald Trump
    Jr. in a tweet. To have any hope of winning re-election, Zeldin knew he
    had to demonstrate some modicum of independence. This is part of a larger pattern: Many of Trumpís most frequent GOP critics, among them Arizona
    Sen. Jeff Flake and Nevada Sen. Dean Heller, are up for re-election in
    2018 in states where Democrats are gaining ground. Mind you, many anti-
    Trump Republicans in Congress are as motivated by ideological or character-based objections to Trump as they are by political calculation.
    But donít be surprised if Republicans representing purple and blue states
    are the ones who are keenest to take Trump to task.

    Then there are the Republicans, led by House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who are primarily focused on passing legislation that will move the country in what they take to be a more conservative direction. The goal of pushing through the GOPís long-
    standing domestic policy priorities has given Republicans reason to put
    aside any concerns they might have had about Trump.

    By now, however, itís become clear that an understaffed and inexperienced
    Trump White House is incapable of knocking heads together and moving the
    GOP agenda forward. To the contrary, mixed messages from the president
    (one day the GOPís Obamacare overhaul is terrific, the next day itís inexcusably mean) and the constant whiff of scandal have stopped the GOP
    agenda dead in its tracks. A cynic might say that Trumpís incompetence
    could be a blessing in disguise, as passing unpopular legislation could
    bite Republicans in the behind come 2018. But thatís small comfort to GOP lawmakers who care most of all about having legislative accomplishments to
    crow about.
