Bob Corker expressed shared similar thoughts last week. Is this for real, or are republicans just starting to separate themselves early from Trump in prep for 2018 ?

Have you seen McConnell's approval rating in his own state of Kentucky?

Is it almost as bad as Trumps for the entire country ? Unlikely.

It's just one more all time first. I can't remember anything even remotely similar. The majority leader of the Presidents own party pretty much can't stand the guy and thinks he's gotta go. Hey, maybe it's a good thing.

They have a lot of important upcoming items on the agenda. Should be interesting.

Trump yells at him everyday and calls him a useless fuck. What else is Useless McConnel going to say, but more useless shit?

No, it is not. I posted it a few days ago. Within their respective electorates, Trump's approval rating is lower and his disapproval rating is higher than any of the Senators he is attacking.

The real point of all of this is that Trump has been worse than useless at getting anything through Congress. He's been trying to browbeat people and has alienated many in his own party. He's so inept, people in Congress just want him to stop meddling and fucking things up.

Trump after health care passes house: This is the greatest bill. Ryan did a great job. We are winning.
Trump a few days later: This bill is mean.

Why would anyone want to work with a guy who will cut their head off as soon as they stick their neck out?

Corker also doubted Trump's basic competence, which was echoed by Clapper. At the moment, Trump is the only one who can MAGA...
by quitting.
Maybe the so called deep state can make his job miserable enough that he decides to do it.
