Mitch McConnell and his fellow Republican Senators are either smart as a fox, or dumb as the hens. The fox is already in the henhouse. The question is, who is the fox and who are the hens.
McConnell and fellow Republicans are grandstanding and violating their job’s duties and sworn oaths by not even allowing a vote on Obama’s proposed SCOTUS appointment. And it is actions like this that cause ordinary Americans to be rightfully disgusted with politics and politicians.
So McConnell & Co. are giving reason for primary voters to push for Donald Trump to be the Republican party’s nominee. If McConnell does not see and understand this, then he is the Hen and Trump is the Fox.
But if McConnell is being double-sneaky and believes that a Republican-dominated Senate can overpower Trump (* & **) , then he is at least thinking like a Fox.
* If Trump can win the general election
** If McConell and friends do not get steamrolled by the cult of personality that is Trump
Speaking of Trump, I would be remiss not to mention the complete disregard of the political rulebook that Trump is using to win. Below is from Trump’s Instagram account yesterday. Not an endorsement for the candidate, but an appreciation of the fact that Trump believes that winners write the history books and he will do whatever it takes to win.
