Tuesday's HOT MIC

Tuesday's HOT MIC

Nightcap:

Back in the PJTV days, I was making this point a lot in the spring of 2016. I repeatedly said that the Republican establishment would get behind Trump in heartbeat rather than support Cruz. Mitch McConnell has always acted like Ted Cruz poses an existential threat to the GOP because he actually wants the party to stop moving leftward. After the GOP took the Senate in 2014, McConnell's first press conference after was mostly a message that he didn't want to tolerate Cruz. There was more of that than an agenda for countering President Obama.

So, yeah, if there is disharmony in the family now because President Trump won't tolerate their inability to lead, it's on them.
