    This has been another sour week for "The Donald" has it not?

    * The GOP healthcare plan is dead in the water
    * Trump's "ban" on transgender soldiers is being ignored by the joint chief's of staff
    * Robert Mueller's investigation now taking aim at Trump's carefully guarded offshore business deals as well as those elusive tax returns
    * His own inner staff at war with each other
    * Sanctions on Russia passes overwhelmingly by Congress, despite Trump's views to the contrary.
    * No budget deal
    * No tax reform
    * No infrastructure deal
    * No progress in paying down the national debt
    * No wall on our boarder w/ Mexico (and if it ever does goes up American's will pay for it!)

    So what is Mr. President's solution? Attack his own political party! He attacks GOP members that won't vote his way, attacks his own attorney general because he won't violate legal ethics rules regarding the Russia investigation, attacks James Comey (a lifelong Republican) whom he calls a "leaker" attacks judges (many of them Republican appointed) who won't rule his way, attacks members of his own staff who are trying to support his efforts. Little does Mr. President know, he's going to need legal rulings, support, and Congressional votes from these very same people in the future if he hopes to accomplish anything at all. It seems Mr. President still has yet to learn that the framers of our Constitution did not design the west wing of the White House to function like a Manhattan real estate development company, nor has he learned that governing depends on building alliances and partners, not in making enemies and alienating members of one's own political party. Perhaps Mr. President is not quite as "brilliant" as he would have us believe. 🙄
