"Trump, stung by midterms and nervous about Mueller, retreats from traditional presidential duties"

For weeks this fall, an ebullient President Trump traveled relentlessly to hold raise-the-rafters campaign rallies — sometimes three a day — in states where his presence was likely to help Republicans on the ballot.

But his mood apparently has changed as he has taken measure of the electoral backlash that voters delivered Nov. 6. With the certainty that the incoming Democratic House majority will go after his tax returns and investigate his actions, and the likelihood of additional indictments by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, Trump has retreated into a cocoon of bitterness and resentment, according to multiple administration sources.

Behind the scenes, they say, the president has lashed out at several aides, from junior press assistants to senior officials. “He’s furious,” said one administration official. “Most staffers are trying to avoid him.”

The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, painted a picture of a brooding president “trying to decide who to blame” for Republicans’ election losses, even as he publicly and implausibly continues to claim victory.


This was so enjoyable to read. Another poster mentioned that after his furious campaigning in the final month, to see everything collapse and the blue wave wash over Washington, he probably feels like a loser.

So, what's going on with that caravan?

Strange that once midterms happened, Trump and Fox have gone completely silent.

NOBODY saw that coming...
