Trump's success has been based on the cult of personality and while he's been right that cultists can't be convinced by reason out of believing in their cult leader, they can grow discouraged when The Promised Land that cult leader promised only he could deliver (and only for them, "the believers"), doesn't come.
Republicans have so far ignored what Americans want, time will tell if they've grown so desperate, they may consider representing the wishes of their constituents.
McConnell provided an estimate from The Heritage Foundation that his amendment to a repeal of Obamacare would reduce the deficit by $4 trillion over ten years, thanks to huge savings in social programs as 50% of America's population dies prematurely.
Obliviously, in his pursuit to keep conning his supporters to stay behind him, Trump has been building a "big beautiful" wall between himself and the majority of Americans since he was inaugurated and it's only getting taller.
The House's and Senate's so-called "health care" bills are transparent tools of class warfare, they are defined by the Congressional Budget Office as ripping away healthcare from 22 million to 24 million Americans to deliver hundreds of billions of dollars in tax cuts to the wealthiest Americans.
A new MSM motto may be adapted from an old cliche (that G.W. Bush is famous for messing up), "Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice, works for me if our ratings go up!"
That is what America and the 1st Amendment represents, we don't arrest or stone people who have bad senses of humor (which is why Carrot Top is still alive and free today....wherever he is).
What if Trump was able to reshape America without Congress or the courts being able to check his power, what would this country look like? Let's call it Trumptopia, a regime resembling Russia but with a Trumpian twist.
All of the clumsy machinations Trump has brought with him as his only skills have already, in less than four months, led to his committing acts that are leading even Republicans to accept the possibility of his eventual impeachment.
Democrats should commit themselves to blocking any and all business in either house until or unless an independent prosecutor is appointed to investigate the possible collusion of Trump's campaign and administration with Russia.
