13. No one is going to give McConnell, or the party, benefit of doubt.

He;s got two options...sink Trump, or go down with him.

And I'm pretty sure Limbaugh and Coulter would be OK with President Pence.

I also think the talk that's come out in the last two days to issue a primary challenger is bogus. First, I don't think the GOP has the guts to do that. Second, they're playing chicken when it comes to removing Trump from office. I'd bet the farm that McConnell is holding onto the chance that Trump will be re-elected in 2020 that he will as well, and that he will remain leader in a Republican-majority Senate.

That's beyond foolish. Before Flynn, Manafort and Cohen...before the shutdown...before the NYT report...I can see how he could keep those fantasies alive. Now? Look at the speed of the news cycle. Look at what's happened in the last month? I don't believe for a second that we've seen the last of it, or the worst of it. And by the time the 800,000 Federal employees go from "worried about eviction" to actually BEING evicted, nothing will put THAT fire out. As the pundits have said, even if he DOES end the shutdown, there will be people with damaged credit and vanished nest eggs.

This is all going to leave a mark. A big, big mark.
