‘Everything is coming apart’: Ex-Trump officials panicked his presidency is in unstoppable collapse

Published

on

On Saturday, Politico reported that former members of President Donald Trump’s administration see his presidency as mortally endangered and coming more unglued by the day — although they differ on whether Trump was always like this, or whether they simply have had a personal epiphany about the man they once worked for.

“It’s just looking like everything is coming apart,’ one former administration official told Politico. Another said it is a “pipe dream” to constrain Trump because “Everyone who has tried had eventually failed in some way.”

One of the key moments, for many of them, was White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney admitting, and then trying to walk back, that Trump indeed engaged in a quid pro quo in his attempts to get dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden from Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

“The wheels are not off the car. The situation is way worse than that. The car has been impounded and we are now waiting to figure out what the fine is and to see whether or not we’re going to get the car back,” said Anthony Scaramucci, who served as Trump’s communications director for ten days before being fired in spectacular fashion. “Mulvaney is a good Catholic and in fairness to him, that was a full-blown Catholic confessional on Thursday afternoon.”

GOP’s best defense of Trump’s ‘corrupt schemes’ may doom him in 2020 election: conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative columnist Eli Lake thinks that House Republicans may have done a good job of defending President Donald Trump during Wednesday's opening impeachment hearings -- but he also thinks they undermined his chances of winning the 2020 election.

In his latest Bloomberg column, Lake argues that Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) made a smart argument in favor of not impeaching the president: Namely, that his attempt to extort Ukraine into investigating former Vice President Joe Biden fell apart before it could be fully executed.

Trump flying in for last-ditch rally to save Louisiana GOP governor candidate with ‘really bad’ vote returns

Published

on

Republicans suffered a major blow in Kentucky after Gov. Matt Bevin, a firm ally of President Donald Trump, was defeated by Democratic state Attorney General Andy Beshear — despite the president's efforts to help the GOP, culminating in a massive rally in Lexington on the eve of the election.

Now, according to Politico, GOP strategists are worried that a similar outcome could happen in Louisiana, where conservative Democrat John Bel Edwards will stand for re-election on Saturday against Trump-loving businessman Eddie Rispone.
