He is a wounded animal. Floundering around the other animals are starting to look through him like he could be supper. But he's very dangerous. I actually called and wrote my congressman and demanded indipendendent investigation. The leadership of their party is in crisis. They are looking very bad here. The press is on the war path. Meanwhile the fat idiot is getting desperate. He basically says how much he hates you and that you should work with him in the same breath. He is delutional. Not rational. Installing his family. Jared kushner now runs out entire government . Dudes father is a convict. Dude just hung out with Russian mob bankers last year. What the hell.
We are living in a nightmare.
Democrats in the House could do a deal with the moderate Republicans except that they seem to want to keep applying the Hastert Rule (the majority of the majority) which effectively gives the Freedom caucus veto power over every piece of legislation passing thru that body.
I think a coalition of moderate Republicans and Democrats could pass some legislation (perhaps on infrastructure spending) but the "no compromise" Freedom caucus will block that as well. And in any case, if it passes the House, it will then have to get past Mitch McConnell in the Senate.
Nevertheless, if Trump gets fed up with the Freedom caucus saying no to everything, he might be inclined to "make a deal" with Dems. Call it the "Donald Trump Rebuild America Plan" and model it after Obama's Job's Bill that was killed.

Nice idea, but would his base go for it?
Democrats would never go for it as long he continues to make his presidency about destroying everything Obama did over 8 years.
What people most dislike about Obamacare is the name Obama. Take Obama name off it, call it Trumpcare, and his base would pay twice as much for the exact same thing.
