The Republican Insiders in Congress trooped down to the White House just before Christmas and standing in lines on the steps overlooking the South Lawn pledged their undying love for President Trump.
The holidays passed and after New Years both Republicans and Democrats sat down around a table in the White House and pledged they’d work with the President on immigration reform.
Had the Swamp surrendered? Had President Trump made peace with the Insiders? Had a new day dawned?
Two days later several Democratic and Republican Senators returned to the White House and when President Trump heard the immigration plan they’d agreed on he slipped and blurted out the word s***hole.
The Swamp was still a swamp. Trump was still Trump. The love affair was over. And nothing had changed.
