During the Alabama primary President Trump was tweeting and robo-calling for Luther Strange and at the same time Mitch McConnell was spending $4 million to elect Strange so we had the Establishment Republicans and Trump Republicans all on the same side until the ground shifted – and Strange didn’t win. He finished a close second to former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore (of ‘Ten Commandments’ fame) so now Strange and Moore are heading into a runoff with Moore leading.

Then the ground shifted again: Steve Bannon – who wanted Moore to defeat the Establishment Republicans – jumped in then you had Trump Republicans on one side and Mitch McConnell on the other and Donald Trump siding with the Establishment Republicans which gave birth to a surprise: Trump fell silent.

No more tweets, no calls, no rallies for Strange.

Whoever would have imagined it? The shifting ground left Trump speechless.
