In this hostage tape, both thought the other was the hostage. They were both right.

Ugh. Pigs. Trump , McConnell sty mates. The carnage in the wake of this disaster of political circus is enough. The good people remaining must gather and clean this sad mess up.

Trump is doing anything he can to attempt to salvage his first year in office with outlandish claims that Republicans are in complete unity. Yes, they are in unity in opposition to Clinton and Obama since they keep bringing those two up. Wait, Obama's out of office and Clinton's no longer running against Trump. Did someone on the WH staff forget to tell him these things just like someone forgot to tell him he should contact families of fallen service members?
...
The reality is that Trump is scrambling to figure out how to promote an agenda, any agenda, with his fellow Republicans in Congress. Now, with falling poll numbers across the nation, even in states he won handily, Trump is trying to figure out how to end the year with some measure of success. Without that, Republicans will have a hard time selling themselves in 2018. They will be the party of failure and the only real change might be the Bannon effort to primary a few.
