THE TRUMP ORGANIZATION, 1600 PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE, WASHINGTON — Donald Trump, who claims to have written The Art of the Deal (even though it was ghostwritten), considers himself to be the consummate deal-maker.
He promised the political party to which he pretends to belong that yesterday he would rejoice by seeing Paul Ryan’s House achieving what Republicans consider to be the Holy Grail: removing very significant healthcare coverage from 24 million people.
That didn’t happen, as Trump is in no way free from the Freedom Caucus. And the Freedom Caucus wishes Ted Cruz or Rand Paul had won the nomination.
As associate solitary reporter Johanna Jones observed Mr. Trump closely, he shuffled a deck of cards, assuming that aces would fly into his little hands, but instead he turned up The Joker. Unable to admit defeat in today’s forced vote in the House, he left precipitously for The Kremlin, where he feels assured of a warmer welcome than he received from his own party.
